SDSU Men's Tennis Drops 6-1 Decision to Washington

Feb. 25, 2007

SEATTLE - The 50th-ranked San Diego State men's tennis team lost its fifth straight match, this time to No. 15 Washington, 6-1, at Nordstrom Tennis Center in Seattle, Wash. The defeat drops the Aztecs' record to 2-5, while the Huskies improve to 9-1.

A day after sweeping 75th-ranked Oregon in doubles, SDSU suffered the same fate against Washington.

Robert Sabo and Billy Timu were the first Aztec tandem off the court as they fell, 8-3, at No. 2 and the Huskies clinched the point when their top duo of Daniel Chu and Alex Slovic registered an identical 8-3 victory over Christian Groh and Anthony Gomez. Markus Dickhardt and Juan Gomez put forth a valiant effort at No. 3, forcing a tiebreaker, but were ultimately defeated 8-7(4).

Things were not much better in singles as the Huskies pocketed victories at Nos. 5, 6 and 3 to record their ninth win of 2007. For good measure, Washington notched wins at second and fourth singles before 68th-ranked Dickhardt beat No. 83 Slovic, 4-6, 7-5, 10-5, at the top of the lineup to post his third consecutive victory.

The Aztecs return to the courts March 1 when they play host to UC Irvine at Aztec Tennis Center. The non-conference match is set for a 2 p.m. PST start.
