FRESNO, Calif. - The Idaho men's tennis team suffered a pair of losses Sunday as No. 29 Santa Clara topped Idaho 7-0 and Wisconsin picked up a 4-2 victory over Idaho.

The Broncos picked up the doubles point with victories in all three doubles matches, before sweeping through singles play. Idaho's Marius Cirstea fell 6-4, 6-1 to Kyle Dandan, the No. 106 singles player in the country. Abid Akbar lost 6-4, 7-6 at No. 2 singles and Cristobal Ramos-Salazar fell in a three-setter in the match.

Against Wisconsin, Ramos Salazar and Cesar Torres were able to pick up singles wins at the No. 2 and 5 positions, but the Badgers clinched the victory by winning at the other four spots. The doubles point was not played in that match.

The Vandals fall to 8-8 on the season with the losses. Idaho will open Western Athletic Conference play against Fresno State on Tuesday before leaving California.
