Live Scoring
The first matches on court began what could be referred to in others sports as bracket busting as the No. 3 and 4 seeds on the men’s side were all eliminated within the first two hours of competition. No. 3 Julian Lenz of Baylor suffered defeat on court number one, going down 6-1, 6-3 to Andrew Adams of South Carolina before No. 4 Mitchell Frank dropped his first round match 6-2, 7-5 to Mackenzie McDonald of UCLA.

The biggest shock of the day would follow the early samples as top-seeded Clay Thompson of UCLA saw his tournament ended earlier than anyone expected as he suffered a 6-4, 6-3 consecutive set loss to Roberto Gid of South Florida. Thompson struggled to assert of the expected dominance as Gid took control of the matchup early. His outstanding play carried into singles where he was able to maintain his advantage on serve while stealing breakpoints to ensure it would be he, and not the top seed, moving forward.    

From a local perspective, Georgia finished the day with a winning percentage as three of five players from the hosts advanced to the second round of the championships. Nathan Pasha continued that momentum with a 6-3, 6-4 victory at court No. 1 against Rafael Aita.
