No. 19 Cal Grounds Ducks, 4-0

By Cal Athletics on Fri, April 11, 2014

BERKELEY - After an extraordinarily long doubles session, No. 19 California completed a 4-0 shutout of No. 39 Oregon relatively quickly in singles on Friday at the Hellman Tennis Complex. Ben McLachlan won first in singles on court one, with Filip Bergevi winning on court two and then Gregory Bayane quickly following with his clinching victory on court four for the Golden Bears.

Cal improved its record to 13-5 overall and 3-2 in the Pac-12. Oregon's record is now 15-6 (1-4 Pac-12).

The pair of sophomore Mads Engsted and Bergevi, a freshman, got Cal off to a good start in doubles, beating the Ducks’ Jayson Amos and Daniel Sardu, 8-3, on court three. Oregon evened matters when Cal’s 19th-ranked tandem of Bayane and fellow junior Chase Melton fell to Robin Cambier/Kevin Farin, 8-4, on court one.

The match on court two between Cal’s team of freshman Andre Goransson and McLachlan, a senior, and Oregon’s Daan Maasland/Joey Swaysland was locked at 4-4 at that point. It stayed 4-4 for perhaps 20 minutes as the teams battled, with the Ducks ultimately taking a 5-4 lead. The Ducks were on the verge of capturing the doubles point at 7-5 before the Bears surged back to tie the match at 7-7 and force the tiebreaker. McLachlan/Goransson prevailed, 8-7(6), after about an hour and a half of doubles play, giving the Bears a 1-0 lead heading into singles.

Cal won the first set in four of the six singles matches. Bayane, leading Sardu on court four, 6-2, 5-3, seemed likely to finish his match first. But the 69th-ranked McLachlan, after a tight first set, beat the 59th-ranked Cambier on court one first, 7-5, 6-2, to give Cal a 2-0 lead. Bergevi knocked off Farin, 6-3, 6-2, on court two, and then Bayane completed a 6-2, 6-4 win over Sardu to clinch the overall win after roughly an hour and a half of singles. The remaining three singles matches were abandoned.

The Bears play another conference match at the Hellman Tennis Complex against Washington at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Cal will also celebrate Jim McManus Legends Day on Saturday at Hellman, honoring the late McManus, a former Cal star, as well as other former Golden Bears.
