Lomacki Falls in Opening Round of Main Draw
TULSA, Okla. – For the third consecutive year, University of Miami Piotr Lomacki has played in the main draw of the Saint Francis Health System ITA Men’s All-American Championships.
As a freshman, Lomacki won three straight singles matches to qualify for the main draw. As both a sophomore and junior, he was selected for the main draw.
On Thursday, the junior from Warsaw, Poland, faced Oregon’s Thomas Laurent in the first round. Lomacki came up short, 7-5, 6-0, in the first-round match of the 64-player main draw singles event.
Last season, Lomacki faced Stanford’s Tom Fawcett, who was seeded in the 9-16 group, falling, 6-4, 6-4, in the first-round match.
This marks the 12th straight year that the University of Tulsa will serve as the official tournament host, and most of the action during the two-week event will take place on the courts of the Michael D. Case Tennis Center.
