FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — After the first day of play at the RazorRacket Classic, the Hogs finished with three wins. Razorbacks Taj Harrison and Mike Nott began with a doubles win against Billy Bishop and Javier Perez of Tyler Junior College, 9-7. Harrison went undefeated today in play, as he also gained a singles win against Adam Taylor 6-2, 6-2.
"We started this weekend off in good fashion,” said head coach Robert Cox. “I was pleased with how Taj (Harrison) performed in Flight 1. He showed maturity and aggressiveness in his match, which is what I wanted to see."
Razorback Hall Fess was also victorious in singles play in his first game as a hog with a win against Colby Meeks of Tyler 6-2, 6-4.
"It was good to see Hall Fess make his Razorback debut,” said Cox. “Having his father here to watch him, who was also a teammate of mine here at Arkansas, was really cool to see."
Play will continue tomorrow with two more sessions, beginning at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
"We have two more days of this and six more matches to go, so hopefully we’ll continue to grow."
