Washington 4, Tulsa 3. UW plays Louisville on 3/3 and Tulsa v Louisville on 3/4
Just got back from the UW v Tulsa match. Great win for UW.
Doubles went to Tulsa, who won #1 & #2. UW won easily at #3 and Tulsa the same at #2 [hit many balls hard down the middle]. UW made a mini comeback on court 1 but ultimately lost 8-6.
In singles, Tulsa initially went up 3-1 and managed to even two of the remaining three matches; however they ultimately lost the remaining singles.
#1 UW wins 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-1. De Klerk was pushing McMorrow around with his forehand, but ultimately ran out of energy in his legs and started missing.
#2 UW wins 7-6 (7), 6-4. Egger had to rest for a moment on the court after a point. I overheard some people saying that he has a heart issue and sometimes his heartbeat gets too fast so he just has to rest for a moment? Egger got down a break but recovered and brought the match to a tiebreak, which he won 9-7 after being down 4-0. Early in the second set Marsland called for the trainer for some leg issue but he seemed to be moving okay. Egger broke him late in the second set to win 7-6, 6-4.
#3 Tulsa wins 6-4, 6-2. Bots was missing too many shots.
#4 Tulsa wins 6-4, 6-1. It was my first time watching Farkas play and it seemed like he wanted to be aggressive but was missing at first, so he toned down the power, only to ultimately try playing something he wasn't comfortable with and losing pretty handily.
#5 UW wins 6-2, 6-3. More of Manthou being a scrambler.
#6 UW wins 7-5, 3-6, 6-2. There were nerves from Kamisar. He let a break advantage in the second set go away and his serve just went missing for a while. Between sets he must have regrouped and he got to a 5-0 lead. Espejo got some enthusiasm back when Kamisar tightened up majorly when serving for the match. Ultimately Espejo just didn't have the legs to scramble to the shots while Kamisar was less worn down.
Hopefully I will make tomorrow's match between UW and Louisville as well as Louisville v Tulsa on Sunday.
