MORRIS HELPS 'M' JUMP TO 4-0 IN BIG TEN

Netters smash Boilermakers,

Illini

By DEBBIE deFRANCES
A warning notice ought to be sent to
all Big Ten men's tennis teams ex-
plaining that Michigan is likely to
trounce their squads as they did this
weekend to Purdue (9-0) and Illinois
(7-2).
Michigan, now 4-0 in the Big Ten,
began their weekend at home Friday
against Purdue. In the whipping wind,
the Wolverines blanked what head
coach Brian Eisner thought would be
a tough Boilermaker team.
"OUT OF THIS weekend, we
thought Purdue would be the team to
beat," said Eisner. "They are ranked
as one of thetop teams in the Midwest
and they were just coming off a win
over Illinois."
But Saturday turned out to be the
most challenging day of the weekend
as the Wolverines lost two matches en
route to their Illini victory.
"They've (Illinois) come in here
today and competed against us better
than any other Big Ten team this
year," said Eisner.
ONE PERSON WHO would not let
his Illinois opponent stand in his path
was Michigan's fifth singles player
Jon Morris. Morris controlled the
match and destroyed the Illini's Scott
Greenberg 6-1, 6-0.
"I played the best match I've
played all year," said Morris, who
rarely missed a shot all day. "There
were a couple of key points that star-
ted me on a roll. Once I get on a roll,I
just don't stop."
"If there is one person who really
stood out today, it was Jonathon
Morris," Eisner said. "His opponent
was very, very good, but Jonathon
was just too much for him to handle."

FIRST SINGLES PLAYER Dan
Goldberg also had an easy day,
beating Mark Long 6-2, 6-1. Jim Shar-
ton, Michigan's lone senior, posted the
only singles loss of the match at the
number two slot. After losing the first
set 6-4 to Andrew Lobb, Sharton
staged a hardhitting comeback and
breezed through the second set, win-
ning 6-1. Sharton was then outhit and
lost the third and final set 6-3.
Sharton, however, finished the af-
ternoon victoriously, pairing with
teammate Ed Filer to take the first
doubles match in three sets, 4-6, 6-3, 7-
5.
Filer, Michigan's third singles
player, had the most people sitting on
the edge of their chairs as he edged
the Illini's Bill Howie, 7-5, 7-6. Filer
led the second set 4-1 but let Howie
take the lead.

Morris
... top performer

JOHN ROYER fourth singles for
the Wolverines, took an easy win over
Madhu Nair. After defeating the
racquet-throwing Nair, 6-3, 6-3, Royer
was sidelined from competing in
doubles with an arm injury.
Freshman Michael Pizzutello roun-
ded out Michigan's singles' matches
by taking Jay Gottsman to a 6-3, 6-4
final score.
Pizzutello filled in for Royer at
second doubles. He and Morris took
the pair of Nair and Lobb to three sets
before bowing out, 5-7, 6-3, 6-0.
Brad Koontz and Chip McColl added
to the Wolverines winning ways by
defeating Illinois' Greenberg and
Shantz at third doubles.
Overall, Eisner said the Wolverines
played "a good solid match" against a
tough conference team.
"THE IMPRESSION that I have of
Illinois is that they're a hardnose,
very competitive team," Eisner said.
"They lost their number one and two
players from last year and have
another injured."
Morris agreed, saying that the Illini
are "fighters and a good, competitive
team."
The Wolverines take a short break
from Big Ten action as they travel to
Notre Dame today. Although the
Wolverines, 7-5 on the season, have lost
only 4 of 36 individual matches in the
conference thus far, Eisner said they
still have room for improvement.
"I'd like to see us play better
doubles," said Eisner. "I think once
we've won five.singles matches and
know we've won the match, we have a
tendency to slack off a bit in the
doubles.
"I think we've made good progress
so far, but we still have a long way to
go."
The Wolverines may have a long
way to go, but they have already come
a long way, winning their first four
conference matches.
