Men’s Tennis Ends Season in NCAA Second Round

ATHENS, Ga. -- The 35th-ranked Baylor men’s tennis team suffered a 4-1 loss to No. 7 Georgia in the second round of the 2016 NCAA Championships Sunday at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex.

The loss ended Baylor’s (16-14) dual-match season and blemished a previous perfect 16-0 record in NCAA second round matches.

Baylor and Georgia (22-4) went back and forth in doubles action, but UGA took control after a couple of breaks on courts one and three. Senior Julian Lenz and junior Tyler Stayer lost their second-straight doubles match with a 6-4 loss to Emil Reinberg and Wayne Montgomery at the No. 3 spot.

Georgia secured the doubles point after 86th-ranked Max Tchoutakian and Tommy Podvinski fell to No. 11 Austin Smith and Ben Wagland at the top of the lineup by a 6-2 margin.

BU tallied its only point of the afternoon after No. 12 Lenz earned a 6-2, 1-0 victory at the top of the lineup. The 17th-ranked Smith retired following the first game of the second set for the BU point.

Podvinski dropped a 6-2, 6-1 loss to Jan Zielinski on court five, followed by Stayer’s 6-2, 6-1 loss at the No. 6 position to put Georgia up 3-1 with three matches remaining.

Georgia secured its final point after senior Felipe Rios lost 6-1, 6-2 to No. 64 Paul Oosterbaan on court three.

Prior to suspension, Tchoutakian held a 6-3, 4-4 advantage against No. 32 Montgomery at the No. 2 position. Freshman Jimmy Bendeck was also in the midst of a tight match, trailing 6-4, 3-2 on court four.
