Championship Sunday brought us several good matches with some decided in third set tiebreaks while others weren't as close as we thought they'd be. The two matches pitting the highest ranked teams took place in Cary (NC) as No. 4 Wake Forest met No. 5 Virginia while No. 2 Texas and No. 8 Baylor rumbled in Lawrence (KS). 

Wake and Virginia split regular season meetings with each winning at home so Sunday's rubber match was expected to be close. The doubles portion of the dual was definitely close however many of the singles matches had lopsided finals. Wake wrapped up No. 2 doubles with a 6-3 win and they served for the match at No. 3 up 6-5 however Virginia would break back and Gianni Ross and William Woodall would go on to win the tiebreak 7-3. The decider at No. 1 doubles also went to a tiebreak with UVA's Brandon Nakashima and Henrik Wiersholm jumping out to a 4-1 lead en route to winning it 7-5. 

Wake fought back in singles and claimed four opening sets of which they'd ultimately close them all out in straight sets.

Virginia's Aswin Lizen put the Hoos up 2-0 with a 6-4, 6-0 win at No. 6 but Wake followed suit with fairly quick wins by Melios Efstathiou (6-3, 6-1) at No. 5, Rrezart Cungu (6-2, 6-2) at No. 4, and Borna Gojo (6-4, 6-2) at No. 1. 

Wake had a 3-2 lead but Virginia's Brandon Nakashima was closing in on a win at No. 2 leading Wake's Petros Chrysochos 7-6, 5-1 while Henrik Wiersholm was nearing a split at No. 3 after taking a 5-1 lead in the second set tiebreak against Bar Botzer. However both Chrysochos and Botzer would fight back with Chrysochos winning five straight games to take a 6-5 lead while Botzer took seven of the next eight points to close out Wiersholm 7-5, 7-6(6) to clinch the championship. 

"Congratulations to Wake Forest on winning the ACC championship," said head coach Andres Pedroso. "Our guys left everything on the court today, as always. Wake Forest was just a little better today, and deserve this. Now it is back to work for us to get ready for the NCAA's.

The Big 12 Championship was played in Lawrence which meant that big time men's tennis returned for the first time since Kansas dropped the program 2001. Texas won the regular season meeting over Baylor in Austin 4-3 but they'd find themselves playing from behind on Sunday after Baylor won the doubles point and claimed four opening sets in singles. 

Harrison Scott tied the match at 1-1 with a 6-4, 6-2 win at No. 4 but Baylor retook the lead with a 6-4, 7-6(3) win by Sven Lah at No. 5. Matias Soto made it 3-1 Bears after handing Yuya Ito just his third dual-match loss of the year, second this week, with a 7-5, 7-6(4) win. 

Texas had leads at both No. 1 and No. 6 but it wouldn't matter because Adrian Boitan would shut the door and close out Leo Telles 7-5, 6-4 at No. 3.

Baylor head coach Brian Boland on the win…
"Congratulations to Texas. They have had a great season. They will certainly be ready for the NCAA's just like we will. The Big 12 is one of, if not the strongest conference in the country. Everybody can play. We knew that today we were going to come out and have a battle. I am just proud of our guys. They definitely deserve this championship. These players have embraced everything we have asked of them, and I could not be more proud of them; in particular the three seniors who have done so much for our program. This is their first Big 12 Championship title and I am just happy for them. Certainly, it is nice to see our freshman come through for us in the end. That guy (Adrian Boitan) is a warrior and it was well deserving that he finished the match."

Freshman Adrian Boitan on clinching the match…
"This has been the best year of my life coming here at Baylor, playing in college. We are the most prepared team in the country and it showed today. I went into the last shot with no regrets and it was amazing clinching the win for us."

"It's disappointing not to be able to win the last match of the season after such a fantastic season for the guys," interim head coach Bruce Berque said. "I'm proud of the way they competed on every court, and we were tough to put away today. The doubles point was pivotal as it often is when two top-10 teams match up. We just didn't execute as well as Baylor did in key moments, but I'm definitely proud of the way the team has played all year long and hopefully this will make them even hungrier for that NCAA tournament."

Mississippi State repeated as SEC Champions with a 4-1 win over surprise finalist Tennessee. The Bulldogs cruised through doubles with 6-2 wins at No. 2 and No. 3 and then they added four first sets in singles. 

Tennessee got on the board with a 6-3, 6-2 win by Andrew Rogers at No. 6 but MSU added a 6-4, 6-3 win from Trevor Foshey at No. 5 and a 6-3, 7-5 win by Strahinja Rakic at No. 3. 

MSU senior Nuno Borges would get the clincher at No. 1 after coming back from a set down to defeat Timo Stodder 2-6, 6-2, 6-3. 

 

"I'm just really proud of the guys and how they came together," head coach Matt Roberts said. "We've said all year long, it's about the root and not the fruit, and we stayed focused on that. We live in the moment, we try to get better every week and trust the process. Going into this week, we were really committed to the root. That's our culture, and it paid off today."

"We're proud of the guys," assistant coach James McKie said. "Mississippi State played really well and earned the title today. We're right there, we're doing big things as a team and individuals are getting better each week."

One year ago South Florida finished a tough season with a 10-16 record but on Sunday afternoon they were headed back to the NCAA Tournament after winning the American Conference Championship for the fifth time in the last six years after defeating top seed UCF 4-3. Just one week earlier UCF rolled over USF 4-0 but on Sunday despite dropping the doubles point the Bulls fought back in singles and claimed four opening sets. 

UCF went ahead 2-0 after a 6-0, 6-4 win from Juan Pablo Grassi Mazzuchi at No. 5 but USF added straight set wins from Alberto Barroso-Campos, Pierre Luquet, and Jakub Wojcik at 1, 3 and 4 to go in front 3-2. 

UCF's Mikhail Sokolovskiy tied it up with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-4 win at No. 6 but USF freshman Chase Ferguson would take the decider at No. 2 singles 6-1, 4-6, 6-1. 

USF head coach, Ashley Fisher, on the team winning their fifth Conference title…
"This is one of the toughest teams I've ever seen. We lost the doubles point having 3 match points on two courts against a team that beat us 4-0 a week ago but ended up taking four singles on their home courts. This is a very special group of guys and what's exiting is they just keep growing and getting tougher"

American Athletic Conference Men's Tennis Championship Final
USF wins its fifth American Athletic Conference title

 

Middle Tennessee is headed back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012 after winning its first Conference USA Championship with a 4-3 win at home in Murfreesboro over top seed Florida Atlantic. The Blue Raiders won the doubles point for the third consecutive time with wins at No. 2 and No. 3 but FAU clawed back in singles with four opening sets.

The Owls went ahead 3-1 after straight set wins by Jason Legall, Kirac Bekisoglu, and Ignacio Garcia at 1, 2, and 5 but Middle Tennessee tied it up with a 7-5, 1-6, 6-1 win by Max Rauch at No. 4 and a 7-6, 7-6 win by Tom Moonen at No. 3. 

Blue Raider freshman Pavel Motl served for the championship at No. 6 up 5-4 in the third but he'd get broke by FAU's Alvaro Fernandez Horta to make it 5-5. However Motl would break back and then serve it out to win 6-7, 6-3, 7-5. 

FAU head coach Ricardo Gonzalez:
"Today was definitely heartbreaking and will be a tough one to swallow. We have a special group of kids who work their tails off day in and day out. They really wanted to bring the big trophy back to Boca Raton. We will use this as fuel for next season and get back up stronger.

"Shoutout to our senior captains (Gabriel Sidney and Mehdi Laalej) for leading the way this season and leaving a legacy in this program."
