College Station, Tex.--A close three-set loss ended the Auburn men's tennis season and the collegiate career of one of the school's all-time best players, Gabor Zoltan Pelva.
Pelva and teammate Alex Schweizer came up just shy of advancing into the semi-finals at the NCAA Men's Tennis Championships on Saturday night.
They won the first set 6-1, but lost the next two sets 6-4 and 6-4 to Jonathan Chu and Ashwin Kumar of Harvard at the George P. Mitchell Tennis Center on the campus of Texas A&M.
As a junior, Pelva made the semi-finals in singles. This season, he reached the round of 32 in singles before falling to Ken Anderson of Illinois.
Auburn's doubles team reached the quarter-finals with an upset victory over the No. 3 seeded team from Baylor. The Tigers took a straight sets victory over Benedikt Dorsch and Matija Zgaga 6-1, 6-2.
