Buckeyes continue to roll on quiet Big Ten weekend

February 23, 2010
It was a fairly quiet weekend for the Big Ten men, but there was still some interesting tennis results out there.

The third-ranked Ohio State Buckeye men, whose only loss this year was to the University of Virginia at the ITA Indoors, improved to 10-1 this weekend with a double-header.  First it was a win over No. 9 Kentucky.  The 5-2 victory came in straight sets and was followed by a 7-0 shutout over Wright State.

The Boilmaker men dropped a tough one to Illinois State, 4-3.  It was their first home loss of the season and it was clinched when Filip Miljevic defeated Purdue's P.J. Rose, 4-6,7-5,7-5.  Coach Pawel Gajdzik  hopes to get that extra point at the beginning next time, “We are still searching for the best combinations in doubles,” he said after the match.

Although they didn't pull off the upset, Wisconin put up quite a fight against the Texas A&M Aggies. The 5-2 finish included four three-setters, with the Badgers continuing the fight even after Austin Krajicek finished it over Moritz Baumann, 7-6(5),6-2.

The Wolverine men won the doubles point, but couldn't finish off singles when they faced North Carolina this weekend.  Four tiebreakers highlighted the tight match Stefan Hardy clinched over Mike Sroczynski, 6-3,6-7(2),6-2.
