The Phoenix opened the match by taking the doubles point, and went on to win four of the six singles contests to improve to 7-4 on the year.

Green Bay’s No. 40 doubles pair of Michael Tenzer (Neuried, Germany) and Howard Scott (Exeter, England) clinched the opening point with a hard-fought win at No. 1, defeating Daniel Kang and Andres Cobos 6-5. Sophomores Rowan Isaaks (London, England) and Leopold Gomez Islinger (Weiden, Germany) also picked up a doubles win, beating the Mastodons’ duo of Jonathan Raa and Connor Andrews 6-2 at the No. 3 spot.

The Phoenix won four singles matches to secure the win, including three of them in straight sets. Gomez Islinger dominated his No. 2 contest against Raa, winning 6-1, 6-1. Joey Leto (Downers Grove, Ill.) earned a 6-5, 6-3 victory over Cobos at No. 3, Marius Merz (Heidelberg, Germany) won 6-4, 6-2 against Andrews at No. 6 and newcomer Jorge Gonzalez Soler (Madrid, Spain) battled to a 6-5, 3-6, 10-6 triumph at No. 5.
