Auburn 4, Clemson 1
sometimes you have to throw up your hands and say too good.
We won doubles, I was jacked up at that point. Strong effort to take doubles. Unfortunately the momentum did not carry over.
1: 23 Andrea Mies led 75 Yannick Maden 6-3 5-3
Luckinly this did not finish because it the win was already clinched for Auburn.Tjis does not go down as a loss in Maden's book. I knew this match was trouble just from the 1st few points. Maden's deep angled shots that usuallu open the court against most players were not effective here. Mies just swatted then for hard flat shots. Mies is very strong, hit the cover off the ball but only when he picked his spots. He also had great hands at the net, Maden's passing shots were picked up by Mies. Great player. It's amazing because he played 5 last year for Auburn, he has gotten very good and will likely get better. Future pro.
2: Alexander Stamchev def Gerardo Meza 6-2 6-0
Stamchev matches Meza's power and made far less errors. He played defense when needed and turned the tables to attack quickly. Very good player
4: Lukas Ollert def Ayrton Wibowo 6-3 6-4
Ollert is lightning fast, moved around the court like a rabbit. Wibowo was sticking some nice volleys but Ollert got to a lot of them.
5: Lucas Lopasso def Zac Rigsby 6-2 6-1
Rigsby had a poor weekend and met a better player in Lopasso
6: Michael Wardell def Cedric Willems 0-6 6-2 6-2
Willems started on fire. But Wardell bided his time and let Willems level drop and took advantage of it. Willems got overruled on match point. This match ended just before #1 had a chance to finish.
