Paul Swanson and the Phoenix are set to wrap up the 2010-11 regular season this weekend.

MILWAUKEE, Wis. ( - The Green Bay men's tennis team continued its three-match road trip on Sunday with a 6-1 loss to Marquette at Helfaer Tennis Stadium, dropping the Phoenix to 12-7 (6-1 Horizon League) on the season. The Golden Eagles improved to 13-9 and 8-1 on its home court with the win.

The match was much closer than the final score indicated, as four of Marquette's five singles victories included a tiebreaker.

Junior Paul Swanson (Coon Rapids, Minn.) took the first set of his No. 2 singles match against Dan Mamalat 7-5 before Mamalat rallied to win 6-0 in set two. Swanson led 3-0 in the third set tiebreaker, but Mamalat once again came back to secure the win with a 6-4 decision.

Christoph Hopfe (Castrop-Rauxel, Germany) also won his first set at No. 4, picking up a 6-4 win over Otavio Perim. Perim then rebounded with 6-2 and 6-4 victories to earn the win.

Sophomore Craig Cox (Surrey, England) earned the lone singles victory for the Phoenix, defeating Jose Manuel Munoz 6-4, 6-3 at No. 3.

The Golden Eagles swept all three doubles matches to start the day, picking up the doubles point.

Green Bay has a busy weekend coming up as it wraps up its regular season with a road match at Bradley on Friday and a home double-header against St. Norbert and UW-Whitewater on Sunday morning at Western Racquet and Fitness.
