Hawkeye men's tennis comes up short in Lincoln


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Hawkeye men’s tennis squad is still searching for its first Big Ten win of the season after being defeated by Nebraska, 6-1, Wednesday afternoon. The loss drops Iowa’s overall record to 7-10, 0-5 in Big Ten play.

The Cornhuskers started off the match by taking two of three doubles matches from the Black and Gold. Jonas Dierckx and Juan Estenssoro were the lone Hawkeyes to win in doubles (8-6). Michael Swank and Joey White were defeated in their match (8-4), as were Matt Hagan and Chase Tomlins.

Estenssoro continued his hot play during his singles match against Nebraska’s Marc Hermann.

Estenssoro lost the first set of the match, 6-4, but rallied to win the second set (6-4), forcing a third set. The Santa Cruz, Bolivia, native’s momentum propelled him to win the third set, the Hawkeyes’ only singles victory.

Iowa captain Garrett Dunn took the first set of his match (6-3), but opponent Dusty Boyer rallied to win the next two sets (6-2, 6-2). Dierckx dropped the first set of his match and couldn’t recover; he lost in three sets (6-4, 6-1, 6-3). The Hawkeyes’ other three singles matches ended in straight-set defeats.
