ETSU Head Coach Yaser Zaatini
"It gets old, always making it this far and not getting through. Tennessee is a solid team, and you have to play well to beat them, and have all the breaks go your way, and we were not able to win any of the tiebreakers."

Morgan Wilson
"I was just concentrating on focusing on my match and ignoring everything else that was going on around me and take care of my match."

UT Head Coach Chris Mahony
"The guys played well today. ETSU always hits a lot of balls in, and makes us work hard. Tomorrow I look for the guys to come out sharper with more intensity in the doubles matches."
