The Oregon men's tennis team will play a non-conference match against No. 23 ranked Washington on Friday at 5 p.m. and battle Nevada at 11 a.m. on Sunday with both matches taking place inside the Student Tennis Center behind McArthur Court.\

Oregon will look to continue it's success in 2010 and build on a stellar 9-2 record. The Ducks have seen incredible strong play at doubles this season, as all three doubles teams (Cornelissen-Verdasco, Bjerke-Mortera, Izquierdo-Clissold) are ranked in the top-50 of the ITA Tennis poll for the first time in school history.

In singles the Ducks have been led by senior Alexander Cornelissen and freshman Aaron Clissold, who both sport 9-2 singles records.

The Huskies currently have their highest ranking of the season at No. 23. Washington is 4-0 against unranked opponents this season, 2-1 in road matches and 1-0 in neutral site matches. Doubles play will be a battle as they have gone 9-1 in the doubles point and are 9-0 when taking the early lead.

Nevada, which will also play the Huskies in a neutral site match on Saturday, has a 2-3 record in dual matches this season, including a win over Idaho which the Ducks also defeated.
