Action Continues at Wisconsin Invitational Saturday



Day Two of mens tennis action at the Wisconsin Invitational took place Saturday at the Nielsen Tennis Complex. The Badgers continued their solid play at the invite, taking three of four singles matches against Nebraska and two of three doubles matches against Minnesota.

The Golden Gophers got a bit of revenge in the singles competition against UW, winning three of the five matches.

Against Nebraska, Wisconsin got straight-set victories from Scott Green at No. 1, Jordan Raemisch at No. 3 and freshman Lachezar Kasarov at No. 4.

The Badgers got victories from Mark Weinig and Ward Bortz at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively, in singles competition against Minnesota. Kasarov (No. 2) and Raemisch (No. 5) each split the first two sets with their Gopher counterparts but dropped the deciding tiebreaker.

In doubles play, UW got an 8-4 victory from the No. 1 team of Green and Alex Conti over the Minnesota duo of Ticer and Estes. Weinig and freshman Pete Amundson also recorded an 8-3 win at No. 3 over the team of Kantar and Wilkens.

Amundson and Mike Goodman each took on Iowas Alexis Lebron during the course of the day. Amundson posted a 6-3, 6-2 win, while Goodman was forced to default due to injury despite winning the first set.

Competition at the Wisconsin Invite wraps up Sunday with the action getting underway at 9 a.m.
