Hurricanes Secure 4-2 Win Against Badgers

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami men’s tennis team notched the 4-2 win over Wisconsin on Saturday afternoon at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.

The match opened with doubles in a tight matchup. Despite Martin Katz and Adrien Burdet winning court two, 6-2, over Zlatohlavek and Olsson, the Badgers took the opening point. Wisconsin’s Popovic and Minasyan claimed the top-court 6-4 over Miami’s Vladislav Melnic and Antonio Prat.

The Badgers then secured doubles after a court-three 6-4 win from UW’s Collin Beduhn and Matthew Fullerton.

Although the Canes dropped the advantage, they jumped into singles and claimed four straight singles courts. Burdet was first to finish after defeating Beduhn 6-1, 6-1 on court four. At the No. 2 court, Katz followed it up with a win over Minasyan, 6-4, 6-2. Melnic was up on Popovic 7-6 (6), 2-1 when Wisconsin retired and gave Melnic the win at the top court.

To clinch the match, Prat took down Fullerton, 7-6 (2), 6-1, on court three to give Miami its second win of the season.

Play continued, but Wisconsin’s Zlatohlavek won court five, 4-6, 3-1, after Nacho Serra Sanchez retired. Court six also went unfinished with Baumgartner up 6-2, 2-0 when play was halted.

The Hurricanes return next weekend at home on Friday, Jan. 13 for a doubleheader with Buffalo and Mercer.
