MILWAUKEE, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay men's tennis team (7-2) was dealt a 5-2 loss at the hands of Toledo (13-6) on Sunday in a neutral-site contest at the Helfaer Tennis Center in Milwaukee.

Senior Craig Cox (Surrey, England) had a strong match for the Phoenix, first pairing up with classmate Erik Finkenbrink (Duelmen, Germany) for an 8-6 victory at No. 1 doubles over Tomas Stillman and Nicky Wong for Green Bay's lone doubles win, then earning a come-from-behind win over Francisco Stuardo (5-7, 7-6, 6-2) at No. 3 singles.

Sophomore Michael Tenzer (Neuried, Germany) also picked up a singles win at No. 1, rolling past Stillman 6-1, 6-2.

Green Bay continues its road stretch this weekend with a pair of tough matches. The Phoenix first travels to face No. 71 Purdue on Saturday in West Lafayette, Ind. (3 p.m. CT), then heads to Milwaukee to take on Marquette on Sunday at noon.
