Georgia Bulldogs Bounced From SEC Men's Tennis Tournament in Embarrassing Shutout

The second-seeded Georgia men’s tennis team, fresh from sharing the regular-season conference championship with Tennessee, suffered an embarrassing setback at the SEC Tournament, falling 4-0 to third-seeded Kentucky.

The Wildcats grabbed the doubles point by claiming a pair of upsets in their last two tandem matches after Drake Bernstein and Wil Spencer dispensed with Alejandro Gomez and Anthony Rossi 8-5. Rossi rebounded to defeat Hernus Pieters 6-3, 6-0 shortly before Alberto Gonzalez bested Bernstein 6-3, 6-4. Eric Quigley thereafter outlasted Javier Garrapiz 6-4, 7-6(5) to clinch the match for the Blue and White.

While there is no shame in falling to the league’s third-best team, Kentucky should have been the more fatigued squad after yesterday’s matches, and the Bulldogs should not wind up on the short end of a 4-0 score to anyone. This was a disappointing end to the Athenians’ conference tourney run.
