PALO ALTO, Calif. (Feb. 12) — Second-ranked Stanford defeated 61st-ranked Georgia Tech 4-0 Saturday, February 12, on the indoor court at the Taube Family Tennis Center.
The Cardinal (2-0) and Yellow Jackets (1-4) were forced to play just one match at a time on the lone indoor court at Stanford’s tennis facility because of rain.
Stanford won at the No. 1 through 4 singles positions, to get the four points necessary to win the match. After the Cardinal clinched the match, the remaining two singles and three doubles matches were suspended.
At No. 1 singles, Stanford junior Alex Kim won 6-1, 6-1 over Tech’s Romain Coirault. After Kim’s victory, Geoff Abrams gave the Cardinal a 2-0 lead with a 6-1, 6-4 win over the Jackets’ Roger Anderson at No. 2 singles.
Junior Scotty Scott added to the Cardinal lead with a victory at No. 3 singles, defeating Tech’s Robert Wright 6-4, 6-2. Freshman David Martin sealed Stanford’s win with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Jason Jeong.
Tech’s three-match California road swing concludes, weather permitting, with a match at Santa Clara Sunday.
