The Rice men's tennis team maintained its momentum from Friday, winning all 11 matches vs. The Citadel on Day Three of the UCF Quad Invitational in Orlando Florida on Saturday.
No team scores are kept during the competition and all matches are following the ITA's new scoring rules for the early portion of the college dual season. The sets are No Ad and receiver's choice on the deuce points. Tiebreakers are played at 5-5 in each set.
Five of the six singles matches were captured in straight sets, but freshman Henrik Munch had to battle to complete the sweep. After dropping a tiebreak in the opening set to Peter Bleach, Munch evened the match with a 6-2 win in the second set and the two players battled to the wire in the deciding third set before Munch won it in a tiebreak.
