“Playing at an altitude of 6,500 feet above sea level Trey remained focused and determine not to give in to his opponent even after losing the first set 6-3 with every game a deuce game.”

The second set was fierce, with each player going toe to toe holding serve. With the set going to a tie-break,

Mallory dug down deep and managed to win it 14-12, saving five match points with some unbelievable ground strokes.

With the match now tied up one set a piece Trey saw that his opponent was mentally spent and won the deciding set 6-4 to win the match.
