Matt Roberts and Rohan Gajjar would team up to make the Hogs number three doubles team that faced off against Zach Daily and Jens Pilgram-Larsen. The Hogs would fall behind quickly, 3-0, but would hold serve, get a break and hold against to tie the match up at 3 all. Vandy seemed to put a stop to the Hogs rally, as they would go on to win in a final of 8-5.
Vanderbilt coach Ken Flach thought after the doubles point that Vanderbilt had the Hogs on the ropes, but credited Arkansas and his team is looking toward their next match.
“I think Robert Cox has to be pleased with his guys, they fought hard,” Flach said. “After we won the doubles point, I thought that we had them. I really didn’t think that there was any way we could lose. I thought we would win at the top and with Matt Roberts, a freshman, at six, I didn’t see any way we would lose at six.
