INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (March 19, 2017) – The USF men’s tennis team posted straight-set wins to shutout the Golden Hurricane with a 4-0 sweep at the BNP Paribas Open Saturday.
The Bulls went into singles up by one after winning the doubles point, and senior Sasha Gozun struck first for USF with a straight-set, 6-1, 6-3 win on court one over the No. 27 Or Ram-Harel. No. 98 Peter Bertran posted a pair of 6-2 wins at the No. 4 spot before senior Vadym Kalyuzhnyy clinched the match 6-2, 6-4.
The Bulls fought hard and won the doubles point with a 6-4 win at No. 3, and a 7-6(4) tiebreaker at No. 2.
Head Coach Ashley Fisher on the team’s performance…
“I'm really happy with the way the guys competed and executed against a very dangerous and hungry Tulsa team. Every court played exceptionally well and the boys really united and played at a high level. When we commit to this sort of unconditional point by point engagement we can hang with any team in the country.”
The Bulls will face conference opponent SMU for the first time this season Sunday at 11 a.m. ET.
