Highlights;

                Eduardo Gadsden`13 played well against his opponent.  They had many long rallies, and some close games, but Eduardo was the stronger player and won 6-2, 6-3.  Wyatt Lichtenger`14 struggled with the mental aspect of his game.  He started the match slowly, gained some momentum late in the first set, playing the last game of the set to multiple deuce points.  Unfortunately,  any progress he made with regard to developing a winning strategy fell by the wayside in the second set and he lost 1-6, 2-6  Will Davis`13 never fully adjusted to his opponent’s style of play.  The Kents Hill player didn’t hit the ball particularly hard, but did put a lot of top spin on his shots.  This caused problems for Will and he went down quickly 0-6, 1-6.  Zach Leighninger`13 and Ben Mooney`16 played for the first time as partners in a match.  Many of their games went to deuce, but too many unforced errors on their part, and solid at-net play by their opponents, made the difference in this one.  They lost 2-6, 3-6.  Elliot Wang`14 and Nicky Li`13 struggled with communication and consistency, both of which contributed to them losing 1-6, 2-6.
