Texas A&M Quotes
Head Coach Steve Denton
On the day’s matches…
“I believed Georgia outplayed us in a few spots at this time in doubles. We simply should hold bettering there, as I do know it is going to be vital for our success this season. I believed we pivoted very properly into singles profitable a number of first units. Very comfortable how we gained a few of these first-set tiebreakers which have been momentum changers. There have been many issues on day one to be comfortable about, however as a coach there’s loads of room for enchancment as properly. Have a reasonably fast turnaround to be prepared for one more bodily battle towards South Carolina tomorrow morning.”
