Alabama Tennis Wins At Auburn
Alabama began the day with a strong performance in doubles where the Tide's No. 2 and No. 3 teams beat their Auburn counterparts to take the first point of the match. Junior Daniil Proskura and O'Shaughnessey picked up a late break to beat out Tiger senior Lucas Lopasso and junior Dennis Lengsfeld, 8-6. Sophomores Stuart Kenyon and Philippe Tsangarides secured the doubles point moments later, beating out freshman Joseph Van Dooren and Ollert, 8-4, on court three.
The Tigers evened the score at 1-1 when senior Andreas Mies, held on to beat Tide senior Jarryd Botha, 6-4, 6-3, on court one in singles. From there, Alabama won two straight singles contests as Kenyon cruised past Van Dooren on court six, 6-4, 6-3, while Proskura downed junior Daniel Cochrane, 6-3, 6-3, on court two. Auburn would then win the matches on courts four and five, setting up for the clincher to come on court three.
O'Shaughnessey edged out Ollert to take the first set, 7-6(3), but Ollert would bounce back to even the match and one set all with a 6-4 win in the second. O'Shaughnessey, however, came out blazing in the final set, with a dominant 6-1 decision to take the match.
