Gray earned his first singles victory of the year as the No. 1 singles man, as his matches had remained unfinished when TCU clinched.

Nationally-ranked No. 65 Kruger had a 6-2, 6-4 win to give the Frogs a 3-0 start to the day, setting up a near sweep.

Stalder finished with his first loss of the year but was avenged by Fomba, who clinched the day for TCU, 7-5, 6-1.

Both coaches agreed to finish out the remaining matches, and they resulted in a loss for Jong and a nail-biting win for Roldan.

“It was good to see our guys being tested, pushed, and keep getting us better and better prepared for the matches coming up,” head coach David Roditi said.
