In a near perfect match against the Marquette University Golden Eagles, the UW men’s tennis team seems to be finding its rhythm in doubles play.After winning one of the last four matches, the team won the doubles point in only one match, which they ultimately lost overall 4-3 to Norte Dame. The matchup against the Golden Eagles was exactly what the Badgers needed.According to head coach Greg Van Emburgh everything is clicking right now.“I thought we played well in the doubles. There was one spot I thought we could have played a little better in. We came out a little flat. But you know we’ve been working on the doubles a lot and I thought some of the teams we’re putting out there, it’s the right mix right now. Who knows, that could change, but right now it’s the right mix and we’re having some success with the doubles so we’ll definitely take it.”Two teams played to satisfying 8-1 wins, securing the doubles point for the Badgers heading into singles play. Senior Moritz Baumann and sophomore Patrick Pohlmann who were matched up against Jacob Straus and Dusan Medan of Marquette got the job done, but enjoyed to the win.“Yeah we just try to have fun out there and enjoy the match,” Baumann said. “I think we enjoyed it and we played well. I’m always a little bit nervous at the beginning with the doubles, but we played well and tried to have some fun out there.”Senior Mike Dierberger and teammate freshman Ricardo Martin also found success on the court together in their 8-1 win over Golden Eagles Niko Boulieris and Otavio Perim.For Dierberger, getting the doubles point was important, but winning as a team is getting Wisconsin moving in the right direction.“The doubles is good. We came out there real fired up, wanting to play, wanting to win and get that doubles point and go into the singles up 1-0. We’ve been changing the teams up a lot. [The win] was good. Just winning as a team, just everything together. Just getting that win — doubles and singles — was a big thing for us, getting us in the right direction, getting back on track.”Two out of three on the doubles was enough to get the 1-0 advantage and the momentum rolling for the Badgers, but junior Marek Michalicka still felt frustration with the dropping his doubles match.After being down one game to four, Michalicka and partner senior Luke Rassow-Kantor fought back to a 7-4 match, only to drop the match point, losing 8-4.Michalicka just felt things went wrong.“We don’t play well all the time and today was just our bad day,” Michalicka said. “We were up 40-love in the first game and we didn’t make it and it affected us a little bit I guess. Everything just went wrong. I felt like we were just so frustrated and just couldn’t find a way to get back on track.”Overall the Badgers seem to solidify a set of teams that have found a rhythm and are successful — earning the squad the 1-0 advantage early on.Van Emburgh noted the importance of the advantage and how it can affect the rest of the match.“I mean doubles is important, you want to get that doubles. If you want to feel like you can get that doubles point and then you split six of the singles then you win,” he said. “Obviously it doesn’t always work out perfectly where sometimes you’re under the gun a little bit, you know if you lose a doubles point, and maybe the guys come out and they play harder.“If I had my druthers I’d be out there wanting the doubles point. I think that’s one thing we’ve really geared towards and focused on — to get that doubles point, to take that momentum into the singles and get to four, start the race.”
