"I think there were many decision-makers today," interim coach Bruce Berque said. "I was really proud of the way the boys went up in the doubles, especially in the third doubles, it was an up-and-down seesaw match, but in the end they really got up and aggressive tennis played. " Then of course we ended with Leo Telles. It's like the third or fourth time he did this for us this year. It was pretty impressive how he attacked and played big in a big moment. Do not be happier for him, the seniors and the whole team. "
