Men’s tennis remains undefeated with win over SMU

No. 9 Texas men’s tennis continued its undefeated season with a 4—2 victory against SMU on the road Saturday.

The Longhorns dropped two of three matches in doubles play — with the lone win coming from the senior duo of Lloyd Glasspool and Søren Hess-Olesen — but managed to remain undefeated on the back of four singles victories. 

Texas won the first set in five of its six singles matches to continue its strong singles play. Three Longhorns improved to 5–0 in singles play this season — junior Nick Naumann and seniors Adrien Berkowicz and Hess-Olesen won their matches in straight sets. The Longhorns faced an atypically large audience against the Mustangs, who had a raucous crowd thanks to a packed house at the new SMU Tennis Complex.     

The 5–0 Longhorns will have two home matches — against No. 62 Washington and No. 75 Rice — next weekend before they head to Chicago for the ITA National Indoor Championship on Feb. 13.
