FRESNO, Calif. (March 20) - The New Mexico State men's tennis team fell 6-1 at No. 18 Fresno State Wednesday.

The Aggies (4-9, 1-1 WAC) dropped their sixth straight match Wednesday but will look to halt the slide against Hawai'i Thursday in Fresno.

No. 18 Fresno State (12-1, 3-0) won its 11th consecutive match starting with a sweep of the doubles point.

The Bulldogs proved to be too much for the Aggies on the courts winning five of six singles contests to remain undefeated in the WAC.

Aggie sophomore Felipe Frattini ended the day on a positive note with a three-set win at No. 5 singles. After dropping the first set 6-2, he bounced back to win the second in a tiebreaker 7-6. Frattini won the deciding superbreaker 10-6 to earn the Aggies lone point of the day.

NM State is scheduled to continue its road swing against Hawai'i on Thursday at noon.
