The Georgia's men's tennis climbed one more step to win another NCAA Championship by defeating Georgia Tech 4-0 in the 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament. The Bulldogs have now defeated their in-state rival 20 straight times. Georgia will now face Notre Dame in the Round of 16 in Palo Alto, California on Saturday. The Dawgs are 5-2 all-time vs the Fighting Irish. In today's match, senior Strahinja Bobusic won his 8th match clincher and after the match Stracky had a chance to talk to me.

Dave McMahon -- The final score was 4-0 today, but the match was a lot closer than the score indicates, right?

Strahinja Bobusic -- Yes, it was a very close match. The match could have went either way. They were very determined, but we pulled out on top.

DM -- A lot of the matches were very close, do you ever scoreboard watch to see how your teammates are doing?

SB -- I do a few times. It is hard to do when I play singles since I play on Court 6, but I do catch myself doing it. Most of the time I am just paying attention to my own match.

DM -- 8 times you have won the match clincher, and a lot of times it comes in big matches, it must make you feel great?

SB -- It is a great feeling. You hear the crowd cheering all around you and you get so excited. I am really glad when I get a chance to clinch the match.

DM -- Heading into the Round of 16, what do you feel is the team's strengths?

SB -- I think we are more fit than other teams. We work on conditioning a lot and it pays off.

DM -- This was your last match at home, how much will you miss playing here?

SB -- Playing here was great. We had such great support in all of our matches. The crowd is always loud and supportive.

DM -- You were born in Yugoslavia and played juniors in Australia, have you ever heard of the Georgia vs Georgia Tech rivalry?

SB -- No, not until I was a freshman here. Here there are so many rivalries... it is great when the fans get involved in a rivalry.

DM -- Thank you for your time and good luck in the rest of the NCAA's.
