    Men’s tennis prepares to get rowdy

    The Robson Tennis Center will be a tense zone this weekend – filled with closely ranked teams competing in an effort to one-up each other.

    The No. 36 Arizona men’s tennis team will battle No. 32 Stanford today at 1:30 p.m. and No. 38 California tomorrow at 1 p.m.

    Today’s match will be the third Pacific 10 Conference match for the Wildcats, who are anticipating a more favorable outcome than the first two against No. 6 UCLA and No. 10 USC.

    “”These games are huge. Back in Spain, they know only three universities: Harvard, Stanford and Cal,”” said native Spaniard Andres Carrasco. “”So for me it’s really a special event because my parents and friends all know about them. On top of that, these two games are so important.””

    The Wildcats are expecting a big turnout, but they remain undistracted, and know what’s needed for two victories.

    “”We’ve proven that we’re a tough team. Only if each one of us steps up in his match do we have a big chance to win,”” said Ravid Hazi.
