Purdue let this one slip away.

Here is a clip from the Purdue write up: The Razorbacks clinched the win with an exciting and controversial match at No. 5. Dujovne took the first set, 6-3, over Victor Hoang. In the second, the two were tied at six and went to a tiebreaker. Dujovne controlled the tiebreak and had a match point at 6-4 when the controversy came. Dujovne called a ball out that was challenged by Hoang. The line judge overruled Dujovne, something that had happened several times earlier in the match for both players. The overrule therefore was charged as a game penalty to Dujovne, so despite the fact that he was up 6-4, he lost the tiebreak and the set. Hoang then edged the Purdue junior in the third set, 7-5, to clinch the win for the Razorbacks.

The final match on the court was one of the closest matches that will ever be played. Krocsko hung on to the first set with a 7-6 (13). In the second set, Fess did a role reversal. He took the set from Krocsko, 7-6 (6). In the third set, after more than three and a half hours in the singles match, Krocsko hung on to win, 7-6 (11), to make the final score 4-3.
