Netters skin Miami,

8-1

By TAM BENTLEY
The Michigan men's tennis team scored a sweeping
8-1 victory over the Redskins of Miami (0.) yester-
day at the Liberty Racquet Club.
"I was very delighted to win but not really glad
Sabout the play," said Michigan coach Brian Eisner.
"Miami is a. very good, solid team from a solid
program. But overall I was not as pleased as I would
have liked to have been because we did not play as
well or build on the performance we had against
Illinois."
LEADING Michigan in the first singles spot was
Michael Leach who started the Wolverine domination
with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Larry Yearwood.
"I was pretty pleased with my play overall," said
Leach. "I've played Larry before, he's a big guy and
a big hitter but I'm quicker. It wasn't really like I
went out and took the match from him because he
made a lot of errors and really gave the match to
me."

Mark Mees in the second singles spot followed with
a 6-2, 6-2 win of his own over the Redskins' Mark Wit-
sken.
"I HAD A pretty good match, I played pretty
solid," said Mees. "I would have liked to come up
more but overall I thought I played pretty solid."
. Michigan's only singles defeat came in the third
spot as Torn Haney fell, 6-4, 7-5 to Scott Wallace. But
Ross Laser, playing fourth singles, put Michigan
back on the winning track as he defeated Steve
Issleib, 6-4,6-2.
In the fifth and sixth singles spots, Michigan again
emerged victorious as Ihor Debryn took Steve Fisher
6-4, 3-6, 6-2 and Bill Godfrey downed Tim Klitch 6-1, 7-
5.
IN THE DOUBLES competition, Michigan's first
team of Leach and Mees blew past Miami's Issleib
and Wallace, 6-2, 6-2.
The second doubles spot saw Haney and Debryn
take Yearwood and Witsken, 7-6, 6-4, while the third
spot team of Godfrey and Rodd Schreiber beat the
Redskins' Fisher and Seitz, 7-5, 6-2.

This weekend the netters will take on two tough
teams as they travel to Minnesota Friday to take on
the Gophers and turn around the next day to meet the
Badgers in Wisconsin.
"IT WILL BE a challenge for us because Minnesota
is the team that will give us the most competition this
year," said Eisner. "It will be a tough weekend but
we're ready for it and I feel very confident that we
can win."
Eisner's only concern is that his team may get too
tight and get too ready for the matches. He said he
wants to see the pressure put on the other teams
rather than on Michigan. He feels his team has
played more good national competition this year and
that the result is that it has made it a much better
team.
And with a much better team, Eisner feels that the
Wolverines can repeat as the Big Ten champions and
represent the Big Ten in the NCAAs.
"To do that you have to improve," said Eisner,
"and to do that you have to do what we've been doing
and keep playing good teams."

HANEY, DEBR YN TEAM UP FOR WOLVERINES:
Duo spells double trouble for foes

By CHUCK JAFFE
Some time during the 1981 season, Michigan men's
tennis coach Brian Eisner used a mix of mathematics
and chemistry to decide that third singles and fifth
singles equals second doubles.
The result was Michigan's highly successful team
of Tom Haney and Ihor Debryn, which won the Big,
Ten second doubles championship last year .and is
undefeated thus far in 1982.
BUT PUTTING third singles player Haney and fif-
th singles player Debryn together on the court wasn't
Sjust a stroke of luck for Eisner. After teaming Haney
with two different partners at both second and third
doubles positions, the Wolverine coach finally put

Debryn with Haney for the first time against Indiana:
The result was the beginning of a series of wins that
resulted in a conference crown.
"Last year we had a great deal of difficulty coming
up with a second and third doubles team," Eisner
remarked. "I finally put Tom and Ihor together and
they just got better and better and better."
One of the reasons that the Haney-Debryn com-
bination works so well together is that both players
enjoy playing doubles as much or more than playing
singles.
"I LOVE doubles, and I get really pumped and
psyched to play after a singles match," said Haney,
an Ann Arbor native. "I know that Ihor is the same
way about it."

"We're confident playing together," said Debryn, a
senior from Detroit. "We both enjoy playing doubles
together, and that has resulted in some good wins.
We're capable of beating anyone in the Big Ten."
The Wolverine second doubles team has more than
confidence going for it, though. While both players
excell at singles, they bring their finest attributes-
quickness at the net, aggressiveness, solid groun-
dstrokes, and a team attitude-into play in doubles.
"THE REASON that they're so good is that they
are extremely competitive and quick," said Eisner.
"They're just all over the net. Tom hits his return of
serve extremely well, and Ihor works on blocking
their returns."
"When Ihor and I started out, the chemistry was
perfect," said Haney, a 5-11, 170-pound junior. "You
can't match players with different personalities, like
one strong-minded player and one weak-minded
player. We both have the same mental set, and we
have a good combination of power and speed. People
don't pass us at the net, so they either have to blow it
past us or make us miss."
"We communicate well, and we're very
aggressive," added Debryn. "Both Tom and I react
well, and we're going to dig for every point. We're not
going to fall over when we're playing good com-
petition."

BILLBOARD
Weather permitting, tomorrow's
Michigan-Western Michigan baseball
double-header will be played at the
Wolverines' Fisher Stadium, rather
than in Kalamazoo as originally
scheduled. The reason given for the
change is that the Western Michigan
field is unplayable. Since tomorrow's
games will be played in Ann Arbor, the
Wolverines' April 14 home double-
header against the Broncos has been
moved to Kalamazoo.

SO FAR THIS year, Haney and Debryn haven't
fallen over for anyone, and appear well on their way
to winning a second consecutive Big Ten title. After
the conference tournament, the pair is looking for-
ward to helping the Wolverines at the NCAA cham-
pionships.
"We've had our chance to play a lot of the top
teams around the country, and we've been faring
well," Debryn said. "I'd like to see us go down to
NCAAs and pull off a couple of good wins to help the
team."
"I see a better year for us than last year," added
Haney. "We've matured as a doubles team, and
we're playing with intensity and playing big on the
big points. Last year wehad some troubles putting
points away, but we aren't having that problem any
more."
Having found the right chemistry with Haney and
Debryn, Michigan tennis coach Brian Eisner doesn't
worry about second doubles anymore either.
