RENO, Nev. --  The University of Nevada men's tennis team was 2-for-2 in its matches on Friday, earning identical 4-0 wins over UC Davis and UC Irvine.

The Wolf Pack (13-3, 0-1 MW) was perfect in its last matches before it continues conference play with victories over the Aggies (11-6) and the Anteaters (9-10). Nevada rebounded from a loss its last time out to No. 66 Stanford, and improved its home record to 7-0 with the two Friday wins. All-in-all, Nevada finished the day with 8 singles wins, as no doubles action was held.

The match with UC Irvine was originally scheduled for Saturday, but weather concerns rescheduled the match to be the second half of today's doubleheader. The change forced the teams to alter the playing format, holding singles action first, and doubles play only in case of a tiebreaker. The winning team would be the first to four points, and both times it was Nevada that came out on top.

"I told our captain (Victor) Ouvrard that we would play two matches today back to back with only a 45 minute break, and his response was `challenge accepted,'" said Erik Burton, Nevada men's tennis head coach. "When you have that kind of attitude, good things happen. Even with some sickness in the lineup, we accomplished high goals today."

Nevada topped UC Davis to start the day, with Victor Ouvrard bringing home the first victory. He dropped Alec Adamson on court one, 6-3, 6-4. It was 2-0 Nevada when Fernando Sunago outlasted Adam Luba on court six, 6-1, 4-6, 6-3. Ryan Andrada made it 3-0 Nevada by stopping Bryce McKelvie on court five, 6-4, 6-1. The final victory was from Quentin Mege on court four, as he topped Parker Kelly 7-5, 6-4.



It was Moez Chargui who brought home Nevada's first win in its match with UC Irvine, as he rolled past Tyler Pham on court two in straight sets 6-1, 6-1. Mege grabbed his second win of the day and made the Nevada lead 2-0 with a victory over Jonathan Hammel on court four, 6-2, 6-3. Robert Allan ousted Caryl Hernandez from court six, 6-2, 7-5, and gave the Wolf Pack the lead 3-0. The match-clinching point was on court three from Andrew Poustie, where he came out on top over Rafael Davidian, 6-2, 7-5.

The Wolf Pack will be in action again on April 9, 2014 when it travels to Logan, Utah to face Utah State and continue Mountain West play.
