UGA Sports Communications

We clap for you, Dawgs.

Your second-ranked Georgia Bulldogs men's tennis team defeated the twelfth-ranked Texas A&M Aggies in dramatic fashion in the SEC Tournament semi-finals in Oxford. The Dawgs advance to play Tennessee tomorrow for the tournament championship. The Vols defeated Florida 4-2 earlier today to earn their spot.

Georgia took the doubles point with decisive 8-3 wins by Nathan Pasha and Garrett Brasseaux at the No. 2 position and Hernus Pieters and Ben Wagland at No. 1. Austin Smith extended the lead to 2-0 by defeating his opponent at No. 5 singles 6-1, 6-4. The Aggies came back for a 2-2 tie with wins over Pieters at No. 4 (6-3, 6-1) and KU Singh in a tough match at No. 1 (2-6, 6-1, 7-5). A&M then took a 3-2 lead when Pasha fell at No. 3 (7-5, 6-4). GBrass got UGA back in it for a 3-3 tie at No. 6 (6-3, 4-6, 6-4), so it was up to Wagland at No. 2. After falling behind in the third set, Ben fought back to force a tiebreaker and secured the Dawgs' spot in the tournament final with a 6-3, 2-6, 7-6 (8-6).

UGA 4, TAMU 3.
