Just a quick note that I have started handling a new site, ConorPollock.net. It is a blog where Conor will be updating us on his progress as he attempts to make it on the professional tour. It is a work in progress and I look forward to working with Conor on this endevour.
He and TAMU teammateAustin Krajicek have not wasted any time. The Aggie pair has earned the finals of their first event this summer, the Loomis $15k. They will face Alejandro Gonzalez and Eduardo Struvay of Columbia Sunday at 11:00 a.m.
Krajicek and Pollock defeated Todd Paul and Tim Smyczek, 6-1 6-4 in the semifinals. Krajicek reached the second round of the singles main draw before falling to the second seed.
The draws in Loomis and next week’s Sacramento are extremely tough. Pollock has a WC into Sacramento, while Krajicek got by old friend Jarmere Jenkins 7-6 7-6 in his first round of qualies. Baylor Bears, Denes Lukacs and Jordan Rux, also won their first round matches today.
