The University of Memphis men's tennis team gave Head Coach Phil Chamberlain his 100th career victory with a 4-0 win over Saint Louis in the opening round of the Conference USA Men's Tennis Championships on the University of Memphis courts, Thursday.

The Tigers opened with victories at No. 1 and 3 doubles, with the No. 3 team of sophomore Alex Jago and freshman Luke Campbell downing the Saint Louis team of Taylor Curran and Lance Vodicka, 8-1, before the team of Lee Taylor Walker and James Spence used an 8-4 win at No. 1 to claim the doubles point.

The Tigers then went up 2-0 when Marten Tamla downed Lance Vodicka, 6-3, 6-3, at No. 4 singles. Alex Bucewicz made it 3-0 Memphis with a 6-3, 6-2 win at No. 3 singles and Walker closed out the match with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Ikaika Jobe to give Memphis the victory and advance them to a noon contest against USF, Friday.

Chamberlain becomes the second head coach in Memphis history to hit the 100-career win mark. His coach when he was the No. 1 singles player for the Tigers, Tommy Buford, is the only other Tiger men's tennis coach to hit the century win mark. Chamberlain played for the Tigers from 1973-1976. He also served as an assistant coach under Buford before assuming the helm of the program six years ago.
