LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. - The University of Connecticut men's tennis team swept Siena 7-0 on Wednesday afternoon in Loudonville, N.Y. in its second dual match of the season.
Led by senior Andrew Marcus (Potomac, Md.), the Huskies blanked Siena in fall competition and did not even give up a set to the Saints. The Huskies are now 2-0 in dual contests this fall.
"The team played very well today," said Director of Tennis Glenn Marshall. "During every close set we maintained our focus and pulled each one out. I am pleased with their effort."
In singles' play, Marcus defeated Siena's Michael Amico in a pair of 6-4 sets before he and teammate Scott Warden (Boardman, Ohio) won their doubles match with an impressive 8-3 outcome. Warden won his own singles' match 7-5 and 6-2 over Siena's Dylan Roberts as well.
Freshman Ryan Carr (Madison, Conn.) defeated Jarrett Siwiec in a close 6-3, 6-1 match, while Wei Lin (Bayside, N.Y.) defeated Peter Collins to add to the Huskies' dominance. Lin joined junior Dave Adams in doubles' play as they edged Siena's duo 8-7.
Ricardo Cardona (Guaynabo, Puerto Rico) downed Saints' Shawn Conroy 6-1, 6-3 for the Huskies as Matt Burns (Middletown, N.Y.) registered 6-4 and 6-0 sets against Robert Cooperman. Burns and Carr also won their doubles' match with an 8-4 victory.
The Huskies return to action this weekend at the Bucknell Invitational. Play begins Friday and will continue through Sunday afternoon.
