The University of Arkansas men’s tennis team at the SEC Tennis Tournament took 4-1 against Vanderbilt, falling in the opening round of the tournament. The Hogs took a quick lead in doubles but were unable to capitalize on a two-court win to secure the doubles point.

Adrien Burdet and Alan Sau Franco played together for the first time since the fall, earning a 6-1 win over Vanderbilt’s Nathan Cox and Michael Ross. The Commodores hit back-to-back hits on courts one and three to gain the early lead going into singles play.

Freshman Benedikt Emesz was first on the board in single play, earning the Razorbacks’ only point of the game. Emesz defeated Commodore Macsen Sisam 6-3, 6-0 on court six to put the Hogs on the board. Emesz won his last four games to improve to 7-7 overall this double-season.

The Commodores secured the game win with three straight singles hits on courses three, four and five. Arkansas’ Stefanos Savva led 5-2 in a third set tiebreaker over Nathan Cox before the match was won.
