FAYETTEVILLE – The No. 51 University of Arkansas men’s tennis team (7-1) travels to Eugene, Ore., this weekend to take on No. 63 New Mexico and host school Oregon.
"We are really excited and ready to go this weekend," head coach Robert Cox said. "We are going to have a tough challenge playing two solid teams not on the comfort of our home courts, but we feel very confident and we need to go out there and get the job done."
Arkansas is entering this weekend on a four-match winning streak. The Razorbacks opened their home season last weekend defeating No.75 UAB, Army twice and No. 37 Minnesota.
Senior Gregoire Lehmann collected a solid singles victory over Minnesota’s No. 49 Rok Bonin in two sets. Junior’s Manfred Jeske and Mike Nott also took down a nationally ranked duo in double play defeating No. 24 Bonin and Matheiu Fromont 8-2. Mike Ward and Nott as well collected singles victories to give Arkansas the 4-3 upset over Minnesota.
Arkansas opens play Friday at 5p.m. against Oregon. The Ducks are 6-0 this season playing all matches at home. The Hogs will then face No. 63 New Mexico on Saturday at noon. The Lobos are 4-3 this season falling to Alabama, Penn State and Wake Forest.
