EUGENE, Ore. -- The 52nd-ranked University of Oregon men's tennis team improved its season opening win streak to 11 matches, defeating Portland State at the Student Tennis Center. The Ducks swept the Vikings, 7-0, for the third straight season-opening match.

After clinching the doubles point, Oregon cruised through singles without dropping more than three games in any set. The Ducks have outscored their opponents, 67-8, in the past 11 season-opening  matches.

Junior Joey Swaysland and sophomore Daan Maasland earned the first win of the season, claiming their No. 2 doubles match, 6-1. Junior Daniel Sardu and freshman Jayson Amos handled their No. 3 doubles opponents, winning 6-2 to secure the doubles point. The remaining match was left unfinished, with Oregon's Robin Cambier and Kevin Farin ahead, 5-3.

Amos continued to dominate in singles, claiming his No. 6 match without dropping a single game. Maasland, who posted a 23 singles wins last season, followed suit with a 6-0, 6-0, No. 3 singles victory.

Cambier clinched the victory for Oregon, defeating Portland State's Wil Cochrane, 6-1, 6-2, in No. 2 singles. Cambier improves his record this season to 10-2. He is now just seven wins off tying Sven Swinnen's program record for all-time singles wins (84). Junior Daniel Sardu cruised to a No. 5 singles victory, 6-1, 6-3, over Jonathan Pike.

Farin competed in the No. 1 spot in his first dual as a Duck, and pulled through with a 6-1, 6-2 win against Brent Wheeler. Junior Joey Swaysland secured an Oregon shutout with a win in No. 4 singles, topping his opponent, 6-2, 6-2.

Three players earned their first dual victories as a Duck; Farin, Swaysland and Amos. The last time Oregon lost a season-opener came in 2003 in a neutral site match against Illinois.

The Ducks return to action later today, hosting Eastern Washington at 5 p.m. (PT) at the Student Tennis Center.
