The No. 41 Stanford (1-0, 0-0 Pac-12) men’s tennis team opened its season campaign Tuesday at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium with a comfortable win over the Pacific Tigers (0-1, 0-0 Big West). The Cardinal opened the ledger with a very consistent team performance, winning the doubles point and five out of the six singles matches.
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.
