"It was a great way to finish the weekend," said assistant coach Rodrigo Briceno, who is filling in for head coach Greg Munoz as he returns from the ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla. "He played his best match of the tournament today against a really good player. Once he takes control, he doesn't let it go."
Svensson and senior Richard Blumenfeld teamed up for doubles action this weekend, but were unable to compete past Friday due to an injury from Blumenfeld.
