SAN ANTONIO — UTSA won the opening doubles point, but Nevada rallied in singles play to snap the Roadrunners three-game winning streak, 4-3, on Friday afternoon at the UTSA Tennis Center.

UTSA (3-2) claimed two of the three doubles contests and held a pair of one-set advantages in singles play before the Wolf Pack (5-3) mounted their comeback.

Martin Ayala and Diogo Casa improved to 5-0 in doubles play after winning at the top spot, 8-4.

Meanwhile, Casa and Tyler Brown each netted singles victories.

Casa held off Moez Echargui in three sets at the No. 2 position, while Brown posted a straight-sets win at the third slot.

Nevada picked up triumphs at Nos. 1, 4, 5 and 6 singles to clinch the come-from-behind victory.

The Roadrunners will wrap up their home stand at 2 p.m. on Sunday when they host former Southland Conference foe Lamar (1-4).
