Order of finish: Doubles (1,2,3); Singles (1,2,4,3,6,5) Head coach Andres Pedroso explained: "First of all, I give a lot of credit to UNC Wilmington and Richmond. They both fought us really hard and were two really good tests to start the season.

I thought our guys competed well across the board. Really proud of our first years Måns Dahlberg and Doug Yaffa for a quality first day, especially Doug pulling out that tight third-set tiebreaker. So really happy for him.

It was a good start for Måns in singles and doubles. We’ve got a lot of work to do. It’s the beginning of the season. So we’re humble right now. Tuesday and Wednesday’s practices are huge so we’ll be ready for Liberty on Thursday."
