NU wins UAAP men’s tennis championship

By

MANILA, Philippines—National University capped its perfect UAAP men’s tennis season with a 3-1 drubbing of University of Santo Tomas Sunday at the Rizal Memorial Tennis Center.

The Bulldogs won their first-ever title via 11-0 sweep.

The triumph eased the pain of NU’s Finals setback to La Salle last season, which marked squad’s debut in the tennis competition.

“Ayaw nilang maramdaman yung nangyari sa amin last year.  We can only get better from here,” said Bulldogs coach Karl Santamaria.

“I’m expecting  more championship experience in the coming years. Sophomore team lang ito, this maybe the start of something for us.”

The Growling Tigers, who were seeking to force a decider, started the tie on the right track as RK Barte routed Al Khady Jainul, 6-0, 6-1, in the opening singles.

But things went downhill after there for UST, as NU took the next three matches to win the Season 75 championship.
