TAMPA, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - On day two of the USF Invitational, the UCF men's tennis team went undefeated in both singles and doubles play at the USF Varsity Courts. Facing members of Florida Gulf Coast's squad in the flighted tournament, the Knights won eight singles contests and four doubles matches.

Facing Brenton Bacon in flight 1, junior Johan Beigart (Vaxjo, Sweden) posted a 6-2, 7-5 victory for UCF. In flight 2, sophomore Claudio Romano (Valencia, Venezuela) defeated Andrew Kam (6-2, 6-4).

Play at the three-day event will conclude Sunday. Host USF and Georgia State are also competing at the tournament.

UCF's two freshmen - Eugene Dolgovykh (Palm Coast, Fla.) and Joe Delinks (Falmouth, Mass.) - won at flights 6 and 7, respectively.

In flight 1 doubles play, Beigart and Romano had little trouble with Bacon and Lee as the Knights recorded an 8-2 win.
