Sunday March 24, 2013Men's Tennis Falls at Auburn, 4-0

Auburn, Ala.

The Florida men’s tennis team was shut out on the road on Sunday afternoon, losing 4-0 at Auburn. The Gators fall to 9-7 on the season and 3-3 in the Southeastern Conference, while the Tigers improved to 11-6 overall and 3-4 in the league.


“We give Auburn a lot of credit for playing well today,” said head coach Bryan Shelton. “We did not do a very good job of coming out with the intensity and competitive spirit, which should be a given. We can and must do better.”


Auburn got on the board early by winning the doubles point. Dennis Lengsfeld and Lucas Lopasso beat UF’s Gordon Watson and Billy Federhofer, 8-3, on court two and then the Tigers clinched the point with an 8-6 win on court three, as Lukas Ollert and Joseph Van Dooren beat the Gators’ Mike Alford and Florent Diep.


In singles play, Lengsfeld gave Auburn a 2-0 lead in the match after beating Alford, 6-2, 6-3, on court three. Ollert defeated Bob van Overbeek at No. 3 singles, 7-6 (4), 6-4.


Andreas Mies, ranked 46th, beat Diep in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4, at No. 1 singles to clinch the match. The remaining matches were not finished.


After a five-match road swing, Florida returns to Gainesville for two matches next weekend. On Friday, the Gators will host LSU at 5 p.m., and Arkansas comes to town on Sunday for a 1 p.m. match.
