OJAI, Calif. -- Kian Raiszadeh and David Sutton were unable to advance past the quarterfinals of the Flight 2 singles bracket as both Cal seniors fell in their tightly contested matches Friday at the Pac-10 Men's Tennis Championships.
Playing against Stanford's Scotty Scott, Raiszadeh fell behind early, dropping the first set 6-4, but rallied and appeared to be on the verge of taking the second. However, Scott regained the momentum mid-way through the second set and evened the score at 6-6 to force a tie breaker, which Scott won.
Sutton, who won his first two matches ever at the Pac-10s yesterday, put up a strong battle against UCLA's Jason Cook, but didn't have enough left to get past the Bruin, falling in straight sets 6-4, 6-4.
In doubles action, Cal had two teams advance. In Flight 1, the duo of Nathan Jackmon and Bobby Mahal earned a berth in the quarterfinals with a marathon 6-2, 3-6, 7-5 victory over Nick Quantrochi and Mark Wolley of Washington. While in Flight 2, Adrian Barnes and Scott Kintz combined to win a pair of matches to reach Saturday's semifinals. The tandem won its first match by default over Oregon's Jonah Sandford and Jeff Thomsen, then came back to knock off UCLA's Noah Newman and Chris Sands, 6-4, 7-6.
Cal's two other doubles squads were both eliminated by teams from Stanford Friday as Erik Dmytruk and Minh Le fell to the nation's No. 7 doubles team, Bob and Mike Bryan in Flight 1 play and Chris Santoso and David Sutton lost to Alex Kim and Scott 6-4, 4-6, 6-2.
