The Stanford Cardinal men’s tennis team (1-0, 0-0 Pac-12) continued its strong start to the season over the weekend in the annual Sherwood Cup in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Two Cardinal players advanced to the round of 16 in singles play while the duo of sophomore Maciek Romanowicz and junior John Morrissey captured the doubles title in what was a superb result for the pair.

The Stanford Cardinal looks forward to the dawning of the new men’s tennis season this winter, hoping to build upon last year’s performance, when the team was eliminated in the first round of the NCAA Tournament by the Louisiana State Tigers. The Cardinal goes into the season unranked in the Coaches’ Poll, but checks in at No. 41 in the ITA’s more extensive rankings, which would place it on track for a fourth-place finish in the Pac-12 conference.
The No. 28 Stanford men’s tennis team suffered its third consecutive loss on the road this Sunday, falling 5-2 to No. 12 Cal (5-4) in a non-conference match. The Cardinal (3-5) lost to the Golden Bears for only the 17th time in the 105 times the teams have faced off.
