Terps Too Much for Spiders
Jan. 21, 2012
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The 38th-ranked Maryland men's tennis team won eight-of-nine matches and swept three doubles matches to win its 2012 opener over Richmond, 6-1, Friday evening at the Tennis Center at College Park.
The Terps grabbed a 1-0 advantage by sweeping doubles and clinched the match by winning the first three singles matches.
"It was a comprehensive win," said head coach Kyle Spencer. "Richmond has improved since the last time we played them two years ago. I'm really proud of the guys for coming out and having a lot of energy. It was a good test for us, and now we look forward to playing a really talented and highly ranked Louisville team on Sunday."
After picking up a point in doubles, the Terps won at No. 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 singles with senior Maros Horny clinching the match with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Jesse Feder.
The Terps turn their attention to 30th-ranked Louisville on Sunday at 11 a.m. at the Tennis Center at College Park.
"I don't think we really have to change anything," said Spencer. "I think it's just keeping the focus level high and executing and getting better each day in practice, and obviously in the matches. It's early in the season, but we feel like we're ready to go."
