DALLAS, Texas – Junior Oskar Johansson lost his first match of the Rolex Indoor Championships Thursday afternoon in Dallas, Texas.
“I was really proud of how Oskar continued to battle throughout the match,” assistant coach Justin McGrath said. “The entire match came down to the wire and Oskar just came up short.”
Johansson played Ryan Sachire of Notre Dame to a three-set match. With two tiebreak points, the match was close to the very end.
Ranked eighth nationally, Johansson was the runner up in the Rolex Regionals held last October.
The Rolex Indoor Championships hosts the top-32 individual and top-16 doubles players from around the nation.
Head coach Robert Cox and a group of Razorbacks are on the road in Bloomington, Ind. for the Indiana Winter Invitational.
Friday the Hogs will play Indiana in this dual, round robin tournament. Saturday the Hogs will face Southeastern Conference opponent Kentucky in a non-conference match up. The Hogs will finish the weekend, Sunday, playing NC State in singles and doubles competition.
