Men wrap Day 2 at SEC Coaches' Indoors
Jan. 14, 2012
The Commodores wrapped up day two of the SEC Coaches’ Indoor Championships with strong efforts in difficult matches, showing promise as the team warms up for their spring duals matches.
Charlie Jones and Gonzalez "AJ" Austin played well in the main draw singles round, dropping three-set matches to two Kentucky teammates. Tom Jomby beat Austin 6-7(4), 6-3, 7-6(6), while Anthony Rossi defeated Jones 4-6, 6-2, 6-1.
“We lost a bunch of close, tough matches today, but they’re improving by the day and I’m encouraged by that,” said assistant coach Jamie Hunt. “Charlie and AJ both lost to really great players in the main draw (singles), but both did a lot of stuff really well that we’ve been working on.”
Dorn won his first singles match of the day, coming back after losing his first set to win 4-6, 6-0, 10-8. Suresh Eswaran also forced a third set for the win after dropping the second set of his first match. Both lost their second singles matches in the consolation round.
The Commodores open up their duals season at home against Middle Tennessee State on Wednesday afternoon this week.
