Tenzer Named Horizon League Men's Tennis Player of the Week
GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Green Bay freshman Michael Tenzer (Neuried, Germany) has been selected as the Horizon League's Men's Tennis Player of the Week for the period of Feb. 13-19, the conference office announced on Monday. Tenzer went a combined 7-0 in singles and doubles, leading the Phoenix (8-1) to a 4-0 record over the weekend.
"Michael has picked up right where he left off after having a great freshman fall season," Green Bay head coach Mark Thomas said. "He has been fabulous in both our singles and doubles matches. I am very excited to see Michael progress over his career at Green Bay."
The newcomer split time between No. 1 and No. 2 singles, winning each of his four matches in straight sets. On Friday in the Windy City, he routed Chicago State's Mario Naboa 6-0, 6-1 at the top spot after beating IUPUI's Luke Bielawski 6-1, 6-3 at No. 2. In Sunday's home contests against the University of Chicago and UW-Whitewater, Tenzer beat the Maroons' Ankur Bhargava at No. 2 (6-3, 6-1) and the Warhawks' Byron Balkin at No. 1 (6-0, 6-3).
Tenzer also went unbeaten in doubles action, teaming up with fellow freshman Felix Goepper (Seelbach, Germany) for a trio of wins against IUPUI (8-6), Chicago (8-4) and UW-Whitewater (8-4) in the No. 2 slot.
Green Bay, which is 8-0 since dropping its season opener at Western Michigan on Jan. 27, returns to action Saturday with a road match at DePaul in Chicago at 6 p.m.
