April 10, 2011
MADISON, Wis. - Indiana men's tennis moved to 7-0 in the Big Ten this season with a 4-3 win at Wisconsin on Sunday. The Hoosiers once again found a way to win without the doubles point. Josh MacTaggart pulled his weight at number three singles, keeping his conference record unblemished. The Hoosiers are 21-4 on the season and have won 11 straight.
In doubles play, MacTaggart and Stephen Vogl took the win at number two doubles, but the Badgers took wins at one and three doubles to claim an early 1-0 advantage.
Vogl jumped out early and took a 6-1, 6-2 win at number six singles, knocking off Alex Robles to even the team score at 1-1. MacTaggart finished next, taking the lead for IU with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Petr Satral at number three. The Hoosiers never relinquished the lead.
Isade Juneau took the next point, downing Rodney Carey at number five, 7-5, 7-5. A Badger win at number one singles provided Wisconsin with a glimmer of hope, but Santiago Gruter slammed the door, winning at number two. He defeated Billy Bertha by a 6-2, 4-6, 6-1 tally.
The Hoosiers return to action on Friday, April 15th, when they host Northwestern on Senior Day at 2 p.m. ET. For complete coverage of IU men's tennis, stay tuned to IUHoosiers.com.
