ST. HELENA, Calif.-----The Georgia men’s tennis team won three out of four singles matches on the first day of the Audi Napa Valley Tennis Classic Friday in St. Helena, Calif.

Sophomores Eric Diaz and Nathan Pasha, along with freshman Ben Wagland all won their opening round singles matches in pool play. The 32-player field is divided into eight pools with three collegians and one junior.

“It was a great first day for us,” said associate head coach Will Glenn. “Everyone competed well, and we got some good results. Nathan and Ben beat two solid players, and Eric played one of the best matches I’ve seen him play. It was a good start, and we’ll be ready to go again tomorrow.”

Pasha defeated his USTA junior opponent, 6-3, 6-2, and Wagland notched a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Stephen Hoh of Illinois. Diaz outlasted Stanford’s Robert Stineman, 6-3, 6-7, 7-5, while Bulldog junior Garrett Brasseaux fell to Stanford’s Daniel Ho, 6-4, 7-6.

Following three matches in pool play, the eight pool winners will compete in the PlayBrave USTA Wild Card Shootout, a single-elimination, 10-point tiebreak tournament. The winner will receive a USTA-sponsored wild card into a USTA Pro Circuit event to be determined.

The three-day event features players from five other participating schools: California-Berkeley, Stanford, Harvard, Illinois and Texas.
