Ex-Cal teammates win 25K Memphis doubles title

   Former Cal teammates Andre Goransson and Florian Lakat edged Scott Griekspoor of the Netherlands and Yannick Mertens of Belgium 2-6, 6-2 [10-7] today to win the 2018 Spell Restaurant Men's $25,000 in Memphis, Tenn.
   Goransson, a 23-year-old Swede, and Lakat, a 22-year-old Frenchman, were seeded first. Griekspoor and Mertens were unseeded.
   Goransson won his second consecutive doubles title and Lakat his third. They claimed the $25,000 Calabasas (Calif.) title late last month, and Lakat took the $25,000 Gatineau (Canada) crown with ex-North Carolina All-American Ronnie Schneider of Bloomington, Ind., in early March.
   In the Memphis singles final, the top-seeded Griekspoor topped sixth-seeded Sebastian Fanselow, a former Pepperdine All-American from Germany, 6-7 (3), 6-4, 7-5.
