SDSU Men's Tennis Upends No. 37 Clemson, 4-3
Feb. 16, 2003
SEATTLE - A day after suffering a one-point loss, the 33rd-ranked San Diego State men's tennis team came back today by winning the last four singles matches to earn a 4-3 win over Clemson at the University of Washington's Great Northwest Shootout in Seattle. The Aztecs lost a narrow 4-3 decision to Tulane in day one of the event yesterday, but came back to earn a hard-fought win today over the 37th-ranked ACC school.
The Tigers' top two singles players each lost their first sets to Maiberger and Redondo but rebounded for a pair of three-set victories. However, Felix Hardt pulled out a 6-0, 3-6, 6-3 victory at no. 3 singles for the Aztecs and the rest of the squad's singles players took straight-set wins to even SDSU's season record at 2-2.
The Aztec men return to action Monday at Stanford for a 1:30 match with the Cardinal.
