Arizona men's tennis' Ask takes third in San Diego

Arizona men’s tennis finished its weekend in San Diego on a high note.

Senior Fredrik Ask won his third place match and sophomore Matt Dunn won the consolation final Sunday at the Aztec Invitational.

Ask beat Pac-12 foe Ryoto Tachi of UCLA in straight sets, 6-1, 6-2.

Dunn beat UC Irvine’s Caryl Hernandez to win the consolation final, 6-4, 6-4.

The Wildcats have played four tournaments since mid-September, and now won’t compete again until Oct. 19.

“Overall it was a good tournament,” assistant coach Arron Spencer said in a press release. “We are looking forward to having two weeks at home to work on the things we learned this weekend.”

In doubles, Ask and sophomore Naoki Takeda made it to the finals, where they lost to USC’s Robbie Bellamy and Nick Crystal, 8-3.

En route to the final, those Trojans beat Dunn and junior Carlos Bermudez, 8-6.
