TULSA, Okla. - The first round of the All-American Championships main draw pitted UC Santa Barbara's senior ace Nicolas Moreno de Alboran versus Alabama's No. 3 ranked Mazen Osama.
Unfortunately for the UCSB senior, despite a wonderful effort, he would come up short losing in straight sets 6-3, 6-3. With the loss, Moreno de Alboran is eliminated from the main draw but still can make some noise in the tournament in the consolation.
In his first round consolation match, Moreno de Alboran will face off against Cal's Yuta Kikuchi who lost to UCLA's Keegan Smith, 6-4, 7-5. It should be noted that if Moreno de Alboran can run the table and at least make the consolation final, then he will have earned a berth to the ITA National Fall Championships.
Moreno de Alboran's first-round consolation match will be on Friday, October 5th beginning at 10:30 a.m. The match can also be watched and live-streamed at this link.
