Men's Tennis Rolls over Lamar, 5-1



Feb. 23, 2013


NEW ORLEANS - Battling the weather all afternoon, the Tulane men's tennis team not only got past mother nature, but the Green Wave upended visiting Lamar, 5-1, in a dual match on Saturday at the City Park Pepsi Tennis Center.

The teams did not play doubles due the weather.

"Our guys did a great job taking care of business today under adverse conditions with the rain delays and uncertainty of playing," Tulane head coach Mark Booras said. "Lamar has a solid team that gave us some big problems in a couple of spots today. But I liked the way we competed from top to bottom."

Tulane came a few points from the sweep in singles, but Idan Mark, Dominik Koepfer, Rodrigo Rappaccioli and Ian Van Cott all won their matches in straight sets.

Mark got past Carl-Philip Lindqvist, 6-2, 6-0 on court two. Koepfer improved to 6-0 this spring with a 6-1, 6-1, win over Bruno Snyder on court three. Rappaccioli defeated Steven McMullan, 6-2, 6-0, on court four, while Ian Van Cott upended Trey Crysel, 6-0, 6-0, on court six.

Tulane other point came from Alex Van Cott on court five, 6-1, 4-6, 10-4, over Mikko Rajamaki.

The Green Wave will look to remain perfect at home this season when they host No. 27 Texas Tech on Sunday at 1 p.m. CT.

"Texas Tech has a very tough team this year and we will need a solid performance from our guys to come out on top," Booras said. "We're happy to have them at home and are looking forward to the challenge tomorrow."
