Final Stats

ATHENS, Ga. --- The No. 4 Georgia men's tennis team completed another weekend sweep, defeating 16th-ranked Auburn by a 6-1 score Sunday afternoon at the Yarbrough Tennis Center in Auburn, Ala.

With the win, the Bulldogs move to 19-2 (9-1) on the season and are tied for second in the SEC race with one regular-season match remaining. Georgia drops Auburn to 15-7 (4-5).

"I feel good - I think we played one of our better matches of the last 3-4 weeks," said head coach Manuel Diaz. "The guys competed well. We played really well at Nos. 2 and 3 doubles and even at No. 1, we played well against a great team. Then we came back in singles and the guys played well from top to bottom. I'm pleased with the way we're playing and hopefully it will continue to our next matches."

Georgia claimed the early lead via a doubles point victory, taking wins on courts No. 2 and 3. First off was the team of KU Singh and Wil Spencer at No. 3, as they defeated Daniel Cochrane and Lukas Ollert, 8-5. The clinch came at 2, as 59th-ranked Nathan Pasha and Sadio Doumbia posted a tiebreak victory, 9-8(2) over Dennis Lengsfeld and Lucas Lopasso. Auburn's 16th-ranked team of Alex Stamchev and Andreas Mies earned the 9-7 win over Hernus Pieters and Ignacio Taboada on the final court.

Singh made it 2-0 as he started singles with a 6-3, 6-2 win over No. 77 Stamchev at No 2, his 20th win of the season. No. 27 Mies then cut the lead in half at 2-1, as he defeated No. 8 Spencer, 6-1, 6-2 at No. 1 singles, before Pasha pushed Georgia up 3-1 with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Lopasso at No. 6.

Georgia then came away with the clinch on No. 4, as 33rd-ranked Taboada downed Lengsfeld, 6-4, 7-5 to make it 4-1 and secure Georgia's fifth road win of the season.

The Bulldogs then closed things out with a 7-5, 7-6(4) win for Pieters over Ollert at No. 5, and a 7-5, 6-3 win for Doumbia over Cochrane at No. 3 to come away with the 6-1 victory.
