ANN ARBOUR, Mich. –The No. 5 University of Michigan men’s tennis team defeated No. 12 Texas 4-2 in a super regional match of the NCAA Tournament Saturday, May 14 at the Varsity Tennis Center. The contest saw a wild finish that started on the outside, was paused for a lightning delay, then moved inside. It’s the first time Michigan has advanced to the Elite Eight since 1988.

Wolverines held a 3-2 advantage with the No. 1 and No. 3 singles still in play before the match was halted due to lightning in the area. Ondrej Styler led 4-3 in the third set against Eliot Spizzirri, while Andrew Fenty led 4-1 in his third set with Pierre-Yves Bailly.

Play resumed an hour later indoors. Fenty came back refreshed and gripped, not giving up a single point and winning five straight for a 6-4 victory in the third set.

Styler and Spizzirri were tied 3-3 in the third set tiebreaker when the match was not completed.

Michigan won the doubles point for the 24th time this season with Styler and Jacob Bickersteth come in big at No. 3, claiming victory in a 7-6(5) tiebreaker. The pair looked like they were on the run after going up 4-1. Chih Chu Huang and Eshan Talluri won four of the next five games to even things up at 5-5. Styler/Bickersteth took a 6-5 lead before the Longhorns forced the tiebreaker, which played out much the same as the game with Michigan taking a 4-1 lead. Texas won the next two games to make it 4-3, but Styler/Bickersteth responded with straight wins to take a 6-3 lead. The Longhorns then went 6-5 before Michigan finished with the final two games.

Patrick Maloney and Nick Beaty made quick work of the No. 4 ranked duo of Cleeve Harper and Richard Ciamarra, winning 6-1. They’re the highest-ranked pair Maloney/Beaty have beaten this season as they’re clean against 3-0 ranked foes.

No. 8 Siem Woldeab and Spizzirri took No. 1 in doubles from No. 24 Nino Ehrenschneider and Fenty, 6-4. The Wolverine duo held a 4-1 lead before Texas clinched five straight games for the win.

The long double point had an effect on No. 70 Bickersteth at No. 4, as No. 92 Richard Ciammara won in straight sets 6-1, 6-4 to snap Bickersteth’s seven-game winning streak .

Moments later, Michigan regained the lead as No. 88 Maloney won 6-3 sets over No. 26 Michah Braswell. Maloney is yet to lose to a ranked opponent this season, with wins over #11, #41, #86 and now #26 ranked foes. Maloney improves to 6-1 in singles #2 and 13-2 in double-dealing.

Harper was able to avenge Beaty in sixth place in the singles, winning 6-4, 6-2.

The crowd moved to the north side of the hall with close matches at numbers 1, 3 and 5.

At No. 5, Ehrenschneider picked up his 12th straight victory to push Michigan ahead to 3-2, winning both sets against Woldeab in a tiebreaker. The first match was home and away, with neither winning more than one over the other. Ehrenschneider took a 3-0 lead in the tiebreaker, but Woldeab won four of the next five points to tie things up at 4-4. Ehrenschneider finished with three of the final four points for the 7-5 decision. In the second set, Ehrenschneider trailed 2-0 before picking up four straight points to take a 4-2 lead. Woldeab claimed a 6-5 advantage before Ehrenschneider won the final game to force another tiebreaker. Again, Ehrenschneider trailed 2-0 and then won the next three for a 3-2 advantage. After dropping two points, he collected three in a row for the 7-6 (4) victory.

Michigan will face familiar foe Ohio State in the semifinals of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday, May 19 at 7 p.m. CDT in Champaign, Illinois.
