Cowboy Tennis Falls To Texas Tech, 5-2




April 11, 2014

STILLWATER, Okla. -

The No. 24 Oklahoma State men’s tennis team suffered a 5-2 setback from No. 37 Texas Tech on Friday in the team’s first appearance on the Greenwood Tennis Center’s outdoor courts.

The Cowboys (20-4, 1-2 Big 12) earned their third doubles point in as many conference matches, but were unable to fight off Tech’s singles attack, which earned victories at Nos. 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6.

After premiering at No. 21 in ITA’s National Doubles rankings on Tuesday, Arjun Kadhe and Jakob Sude continued their undefeated run with an 8-6 victory over Dojas/Soares. The win clinched the match’s doubles point for the Cowboys after Chris Haworth and Brady Bohrnstedt overcame a three-game deficit to defeat Zambon/Cailleau, 8-5.

The Red Raiders opened singles play by handing Lucas Gerch his first individual loss of the year. The freshman’s 16-match winning streak to open the season was snapped by Maxime Hinnisdaels, who earned a 7-6(5), 6-3 victory. Arjun Kadhe’s 6-4, 6-2 triumph over Francisco Zambon helped the Cowboys retake the lead, but it was the last victory Oklahoma State would earn on the night.

Sebastian Sachs and Bohrnstedt fell in straight sets at Nos. 2 and 5, giving Texas Tech a 3-2 advantage, but Sude’s thrilling 12-10 second-set tiebreaker win gave the Cowboys hope. However, No. 105 Felipe Soares would eventually take down Sude in the third set and complete a 6-3, 6-7(10), 6-3 victory.

Next up, the Pokes will welcome sixth-ranked Baylor to the Greenwood Tennis Center on Sunday for a 1 p.m. matchup. The match will be played outdoors unless Sunday’s weather forces the team inside. For more updates and information, follow @CowboyTennis on Twitter.
