SAN DIEGO -- Playing without All-American Ryan Redondo and with just five healthy bodies, San Diego State had its two-game winning streak snapped in a 7-0 loss to eighth-ranked UCLA at the Los Angeles Tennis Center on Tuesday.

With only five healthy players, the Aztecs (4-4) were not able to field a complete team and thus had to default at the No. 3 doubles and No. 6 singles positions. Playing shorthanded was especially costly for the Aztecs in doubles, as the Bruins (12-5) only needed to win one match. Following an SDSU victory at the No. 2 court, the doubles point was decided at the No. 1 spot, where UCLA?s Alberto Francis and Kris Kwinta defeated Felix Hardt/Daniel Jung, 8-5.

Dropping the doubles point combined with having to default at the No. 6 position, the Aztecs faced a 2-0 deficit by the start of singles play. UCLA quickly made it 3-0 after sophomore Chris Surapol cruised to a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Mike Coehlo at the No. 5 spot.

The dual match was decided at the No. 1 position, where sixth-ranked Tobias Clemens defeated the 69th-ranked Hardt, 6-3, 6-4.

With the Bruins up 4-0 and the dual match already decided, UCLA went on to post victories on all three remaining courts, as Chris Lam, Francis and Philipp Gruendler were all registered straight-set decisions.

The Aztecs will play host to Yale on Saturday at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club. Match time is set for 1:30 p.m. PST.
