The UC Davis men’s tennis team put up a good showing at the 2010 ITA Northwest Regional Tournament this weekend.
The Aggies had one player win the first two rounds of singles competition, three players advance a round in the consolation singles bracket and one doubles team walk away with a win in the round of 64.
Sophomore Toki Sherbakov had the best singles performance for the team, shutting out Jeff Cero of Portland state (6-0, 6-0) in the first round and then defeating Danny Diaz of Sacramento State (6-1, 6-2) in the second round. Unfortunately for Sherbakov, he couldn’t advance any further as he fell to University of Washington’s Kyle McMorrow in the round of 32 (6-3, 6-2).
In doubles competition, Aggie sophomore Connor Coates and freshman Alec Haley won their first round against Scott Sullivan and Zhia Chong of Gonzaga in a pro set 9-8 (4-0). Stanford’s Bradley Klahn and Ryan Thatcher eliminated the duo in the following round (8-4).
The Aggies return to action in two weeks when they travel to St. Mary’s to participate in the Gael Tennis Classic.
