Men's tennis comeback bid falls short at Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. – A valiant rally fell short Tuesday afternoon as Memphis men's tennis dropped a 4-3 league decision at Tulsa.

Despite dropping the doubles point, Memphis answered with victories in three of the first five singles decisions. Going the distance in the match-deciding contest, Memphis' rally fell just shy as the home side claimed the three-set thriller.

Tulsa turned in doubles wins on courts 1 and 2 to claim the early advantage. Playing out the opening point, duo Jan Pallares and Patrick Sydow outlasted Tulsa's court 2 tandem in a 5-5 tiebreak.
