The Arizona men’s tennis team will wrap up its fall season this weekend when it competes in the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Fall Classic.

In action for the Wildcats are four veteran players led by seniors Ravid Hazi and Pat Metham. Juniors Andres Carrasco and Geoff Embry will join Hazi and Metham, and they will all compete in the singles draw at the event.

Metham and Embry will team up and play in the doubles draw, while Hazi and Carrasco will form the other Arizona tandem.

“”It’s a tournament we’re bringing our older guys to, and it’s the last one of the fall, so we obviously want to finish on a high note,”” head coach Tad Berkowitz said.

The Fall Classic presents one final opportunity for Arizona players to match up with competition from other schools before the regular season begins in January.

Among the seven other schools at the tournament are host UNLV and University of the Pacific, who both field tough teams that finished last season ranked in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association top 75.

“”We had a good tournament at the ITA Regionals in Malibu, so hopefully we can keep it going and finish with a bang,”” Berkowitz added.

Play in Las Vegas, Nev., will begin Friday at 9 a.m. at the Frank and Vicki Fertitta Tennis Complex, and will continue through the weekend, finishing up on Sunday.
