Stanford men’s tennis
With the departure of last year’s two top players, men’s tennis sophomore John Morrissey had big shoes to fill this season, leading a relatively young team against some of the toughest competition in the nation.
The No. 49 Stanford men’s tennis team will play host to No. 2 USC tomorrow in the Cardinal’s first official match of the Pac-12 season.
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.
After disappointing losses against UCLA and USC on the road, the No. 28 Stanford men’s tennis team is looking to move back to .500 on the season in Sunday’s nonconference match at No. 12 Cal.
The clash between the Cardinal (3-4) and the rival Golden Bears (4-4) is predicted to be one of the closest of the season.
