RENO, Nev. - The University of Nevada men's tennis team continues its season in Arizona on Sunday when it faces Arizona University.

The Wolf Pack (3-1, 0-1 MW) won it's last pair of matches after splitting two on opening weekend. Nevada is looking to push its winning streak to three against the Wildcats (7-5). In Nevada's match against Arizona last season, five matches went to three sets. Head coach Erik Burton is looking for more production from his starting line up.

"Victor Ouvrard and Ryan Andrada are undefeated on the season," he said. "However, we need the other starters to challenge themselves to a great results commitment. We will continue to get stronger."

The No. 7 ITA Mountain Region Player in Ouvrard and Andrada both sit at a perfect 4-0 on the season in singles. Andrew Poustie sits at 3-1, while two other pack members are 2-2. Ouvrard and partner Robert Allan are an unbeaten 4-0 in doubles play on the year. Poustie and partner Fernando Sunago are also 3-1 in doubles play.

The Wildcats sit at 7-5, but are 5-1 since opening their opening weekend. Arizona will host the match on its home court after having played its most recent matches at a pair of local venues. After the match with Arizona, the Wolf Pack will play Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Ariz. Grand Canyon is 1-1, but will play twice more before meeting Nevada.


 

 

The match with the Wildcats begins on Sunday at 10 am in Tuscon, Ariz.
