DES MOINES, Iowa (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay men's tennis team (11-5) dropped a 7-0 result to No. 45 Drake on Sunday at the Roger Knapp Tennis Center in Des Moines, Iowa. The Bulldogs (17-2) took each of the three doubles matches before sweeping the six singles contests in their first outdoor home match of the season.

In doubles, Green Bay's nationally-ranked duo of Felix Goepper (Seelbach, Germany) and Michael Tenzer (Neuried, Germany) battled tough at the No. 1 spot, but ended up falling 9-7 to Drake's Anis Ghorbel and James McKie.

The Bulldogs won all six singles matches in straight sets, beginning with Robin Goodman's 6-0, 6-2 win over Green Bay's Craig Cox (Surrey, England) at No. 5. In the No. 1 contest, McKie defeated Phoenix senior Paul Swanson (Coon Rapids, Minn.) 6-0, 7-6 (1), while Ghorbel beat Tenzer 6-4, 6-3 at the No. 2 spot.

Green Bay is back in action this weekend with its first home matches since Feb. 19 when it hosts Horizon League foes UIC (Saturday) and Valparaiso (Sunday) at Western Racquet and Fitness. The contests mark the final home stand for the Phoenix this season.
