    TUCSON, ARIZ. - The No. 4 USC men's tennis team put another win in the books, improving to 13-1 overall with a 6-1 decision over No. 62 Arizona on Saturday afternoon in Tucson. Freshman Robert Farah clinched the match this time with his 7-6 (2), 6-2 win from the No. 4 singles slot to help the Trojans bring home a win.

    Doubles play was dominated by the Trojans, as Farah and partner Kaes Van't Hof notched an 8-3 win to start off three decisive USC victories. Jamil Al-Agba / Garrett Snyder tacked up a solid 8-1 win from the No. 3 position over Alcala/Romic, and then Dejan Cvetkovic / Gary Sacks rounded out the sweep with an 8-2 win at No. 2.

    That pushed the teams into singles action, where Gary Sacks led off with a 6-3, 6-2 win from No. 6 over Alex Lebrosse. Kaes Van't Hof topped Bruno Alcala next 6-3, 6-4 to get USC ahead 3-0, although Arizona would grab a point next when Claudio Christen got past USC's #77 Dejan Cvetkovic 6-4, 6-4 at the No. 1 position. USC would answer back and clinch the match soon after when Farah locked down a 7-6 (2), 6-2 win over Jason Labrosse to push USC ahead 4-1. #113 Jason McNaughton would overpower Peter Zimmer with a pair of tiebreaker wins for a 7-6 (7), 7-6 (2) decision, and then Jamil Al-Agba wrapped things up with the lone three-set match of the day - a 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 comeback win over Ravid Hezi to round out a 6-1 win for the Trojans.

     

     

    The Trojans return to action on Friday (March 23) with a nonconference home match against UNLV at 2 p.m. at Marks Stadium.
