UCLA freshman Marcos Giron & All-American Nick Meister (who qualified in singles as well) fell to ATP Tour veterans Rajeev Ram & Michael Russell at the Farmer’s Classic on Wednesday night (July 25, 2012). The first set was quite contentious with Meister and Giron, both California natives, going up an early break, but immediately giving it back in the no-ad scoring format. The tie-breaker was one-sided and the experience of Ram & Russell showed through. In the second set, the young Bruins were clearly deflated as Ram and Russell raced to a 3-0 lead before closing out the match 6-2. Congrats to the Bruins for bringing some good tennis to the Farmer’s Classic and for recruiting American talent for the starting line-up of their team! See more on this at the UCLA Website.
