SEATTLE – Visiting and 46th-ranked Virginia Tech notched a 5-2 victory over the Washington men's tennis team Wedesday at the Nordtrom Tennis Center.

The Huskies, who fell to 7-7 on the season in the loss, picked up a couple of singles victories after the Hokies (8-4) had secured the match-clinching fourth point. The match-winner came in the No. 6 singles, as Virginia Tech's Aaron Gomez won a tie-break in the second set to beat Husky Michael Chamerski, 6-2, 7-6.

In the No. 2 singles, Husky Max Manthou had rebounded from a 6-0 loss in the first set to win the second, 6-4. He followed that up with a 6-2 win in the third set over Hokie Hunter Koontz.

In the No. 5 singles, UW's Viktor Farkas picked up a 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 win over Tech's Florian Nicoud. 

Tech took the doubles point with a pair of 8-4 victories in the Nos. 1 and 3 matches. In the No. 2 doubles, Washington's Michael Chamerski and Emmett Egger beat Tech's Amerigo Contini and Florian Nicoud, 8-5.

"It was disappointing," said UW head coach Matt Anger. "I felt that we did not come out with nearly the energy we did on Friday. It’s quiet in here, it’s Wednesday at 3:00, but that shouldn’t determine the passion that a tennis player has for coming out on the court.

"Every day we’re fired up in practice, and I was not pleased with how we came out," he continued. "I think sometimes you make a few shots and that translates into a little momentum and then you’re fired up. And we missed a few shots and it translated into – I don't know how to label it exactly – frustration, worry. But it was not exciting passion at that point."

Contini, the No. 24-ranked singles player in the nation, won the No. 1 singles over Washington's Gal Hakak, 7-5, 6-0, who was playing in the top spot for the second time this season. 

Next up for the Huskies is a home match this Friday, March 14, vs. Gonzaga. The Dawgs begin Pac-12 Conference play March 28-29 when UCLA and USC come to Seattle.
