CHICAGO ( - The Green Bay men's tennis team picked up a pair of victories on Friday in the Windy City, defeating IUPUI 5-2 before downing host Chicago State 7-0. The Phoenix improved to 6-1 on the year and extended its winning streak to six matches.

In the early match against the Jaguars, the Phoenix fell behind early by dropping the doubles point after three tight contests. The freshman duo of Felix Goepper (Seelbach, Germany) and Michael Tenzer (Neuried, Germany) earned Green Bay's lone doubles win, defeating IUPUI's Joel Modesitt and Nick Volz 8-6.

The Phoenix recovered to take five of the six singles matches in straight sets to secure the 5-2 victory. Junior Erik Finkenbrink (Duelman, Germany) earned a win at the No. 1 spot, beating Volz 6-1, 6-3, while Tenzer was victorious in the No. 2 match, defeating Luke Bielawski 6-1, 6-3.

In the evening contest against Chicago State, the Phoenix dominated in both singles and doubles en route to the 7-0 win. Green Bay took the Nos. 1 and 2 doubles contests 8-3, followed by straight-set wins at Nos. 1 through 5 singles. Due to an incomplete lineup, the Cougars forfeited the No. 3 doubles and No. 6 singles matches.

Tenzer won easily in the top singles slot, earning a 6-0, 6-1 win over Chicago State's Mario Naboa. Senior Paul Swanson (Coon Rapids, Minn.) also picked up a convincing win at the No. 2 singles spot, beating Julian Chavez 6-1, 6-1.

The Phoenix men return to action on Sunday with a pair of home matches against nationally ranked Division III opponents at Western Racquet and Fitness Club in Green Bay. The Phoenix first welcomes 11th-ranked Chicago at noon before hosting No. 21 UW-Whitewater at 3 p.m.
