Women's tennis tops Ohio State, 8-1

The Michigan women's tennis
team's Big Ten season received a
much needed boost this weekend, as
the Wolverines defeated Ohio State
Saturday, 8-1 .
Michigan had suffered consecu-
tive losses to Big Ten rivals
Wisconsin and Northwestern earlier
this season and the team was anxious
for a Big Ten win.
"Things hadn't been going that
great for us so far," co-captain Amy
Malik said. "We'd lost some
matches to other schools that we
should have won, and we wanted to
get out there and get the job done."
The Wolverines swept all the
singles matches in two sets. Kalei
Beamon defeated Ohio State's Kelly
Story, 6-3, 6-4, at No 1. Kim Pratt,
Jaimie Fielding, and Allison
Schlonsky defeated their opponents
at No. 2, 3, and 4 singles respec-
tively, by identical 6-3, 6-1 scores.
At No. 5, Malik posted a 6-4, 6-3
victory over Myerly Kertis. At No.
6, Liz Cyganiak defeated Stephanie
Greene, 6-0, 6-2.
"We had practiced really in-
tensely the week before the match,"
Beamon said. "We really wanted our
first Big Ten win, so we worked
hard and we did it."
Michigan's only loss was at No.1
doubles. Beamon and Pratt lost to
Ohio State's Story and Villena, a
nationally-ranked doubles team, 6-3,
6-4. But the teams of Fielding and
Jennifer Lev at No. 2, and Malik and
Cyganiak at No. 3, pulled through
for the Wolverines, both with 6-4, 6-
"We worked on using our oppo-
nent's style of play to our advantage
during this past week of practice,"
Beamon said. "The practices and
drills were more geared to who we
were playing, and I think it made a
The Wolverines were eager to
meet Big Ten leader Indiana Sunday.
Yet Sunday morning, there were no
Hoosiers in sight. Indiana had
expressed concern about playing at
the Indoor Track and Tennis
Building, and since it was too cold to
play outdoors, the team did not

No, not the old television show,
but the string of unlikely circum-
stances surrounding the Michigan
men's tennis team's 5-4 victory over
Purdue Friday at the Liberty Sports
"We keep things interesting,"
Michigan coach Brian Eisner said
after the Wolverines (3-1 in the Big
Ten, 3-4 overall) defeated the
Boilermakers (0-1, 7-2) in the last
match of the day.
That match, a three-set contest at
No. 3 doubles between Michigan's
Mitch Rubenstein and Greg Artz and
Purdue's Lisandro Lorenzini and
Max Eisenbud, typified the after-
noon. Rubenstein and Artz had never
played as a team before, but were
forced into the pairing by a string of
injuries. The first casualty was No. 1
singles player David Kass, who sat
out a match to rest his tendinitis-
'plagued right forearm.
Next to fall was Rubenstein's
scheduled partner, No. 5 singles
player John Lingon. Eisner said that
Lingon's "very minor" knee injury
VUrned into a "very major" one in his
singles match with Eisenbud, and he
had to retire in the second set.
Finally, Eric Grand injured his
back, slamming into a pole at the
rear of the court in the middle of his
doubles clash with Michael
*Gucciardo and Andy Berlinski.
Grand was in obvious pain through
the rest of the contest as he and part-
ner Scooter Place fell, 6-3, 6-2.
Artz, a rookie out of Grosse
Pointe, Mich., had never played a
match for Michigan before Friday.
Yet, he and Rubenstein combined
for the most dramatic victory of the
day. Down 1-4 in the first set, the
duo stormed back to take the set in a
tiebreaker, 7-6 (7-3). The second set
went to Purdue, 6-4, but Rubenstein
and Artz exploded in the third,
putting Lorenzini and Eisenbud
away, 6-2, and giving Michigan the
"For (Artz) to come in off the
bench like this, at the last minute and
play the level of tennis that he did ...
was just a tremendous performance,"
*Eisner said. "If I had to select an
MVP of this match, it would cer-
tainly be Greg Artz."
Others might choose Dan Brakus.
The sophomore ordinarily plays No.
2 singles, but, due to Kass' injury,
had to handle No. 1 Boiler Scott
Micus. At the beginning of the
match it looked like the pressure
might be too much for him - he
double faulted on the first point -
but soon the all-Big Ten player hit
Brakus' typically erratic serve
was consistent, and he recorded sev-
eral aces. He broke Micus' serve in
the seventh game to lead, 5-3, in the
first set, and then took the set, 6-3.
Brakus went on to take the second
set, and the match, 6-4.
Brakus then teamed with Terry
London at No. 1 doubles to defeat
previously unbeaten Micus and Dan
Poole, 6-3, 7-5.
"I'd say Dan was dominant to-
day," assistant Tim Madden said.
