LUBBOCK, Texas
– The No. 30 Texas Tech men’s tennis team snapped a two-match losing streak by beating No. 59 UNLV, 6-1, on Saturday at the Aztec Tennis Center in San Diego, Calif.

The Red Raiders (8-5) picked up the doubles point to start the match winning at the No. 1 and No. 2 spots over the Rebels (10-6).

The No. 2 duo of Sinisa Markovic and Michael Breler clinched the doubles point as they beat Attila Toth and Mehdi Bouras, 8-6.

Tech then went on to win five of six singles matches with the first coming at No. 4 as Rojmar was victorious over Wesley Burrows, 6-2, 6-4. The next win came at No. 6 as Milos Kustudija beat Bryan Miller, 6-2, 6-1. Clinching the victory for the Red Raiders was Gonzalo Escobar, as he won over Barlocchi, 6-2, 6-1. Rounding out Tech’s singles wins were No. 45 Carvalho at No. 1, beating Wronski, 6-3, 6-4, and Breler defeating Toth, 7-6 (5), 6-2, at the No. 5 position.
