Baro Clinches 4-3 Victory over Winthrop

BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Senior Josep Baro (Barcelona, Spain) at No. 5 won a two-set singles match, 7-6 (4), 7-5, that approached three hours to secure a 4-3 win for Campbell against Winthrop on Saturday at the Nisbet Tennis Center.

A three-set triumph, 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-4, at No. 6 by freshman Rik Van Gerwen (Valkenswaard, Netherlands) brought Campbell (7-5, 2-0 Big South) even with the Eagles at three.

Winthrop (4-10, 0-2 Big South) rallied after being down 2-1 to take a 3-2 lead with three-set wins at No. 2 and No. 3 by Ivan Aramburu, 5-7, 6-1, 6-2, and Yuta Hirokawa, 6-2, 3-6, 7-5, respectively.

ITA-ranked No. 80 senior Fernando Guillen (San Louis Potosi, Mexico) registered the first singles point for the Camels with a 6-4, 7-5 victory.

Campbell opened the afternoon by taking the doubles point when Guillen and partner sophomore Adrien Rossignon (Arlon, Belgium) came up with an 8-6 win at No. 1.  Senior David Clavera (Barcelona, Spain) and Baro knocked off the Eagles' No. 2 pairing, 8-2, to put the Camels out in front, but Micheal Chen and Juan Boda secured an 8-6 win at No. 3 to even up the doubles competition at one-all.

The Camels return to the courts on Monday with a trip to Gardner-Webb. First serve of the match is slated for 2:30 p.m.
