AUBURN, Ala. – The Samford men's tennis team opened its spring season with a pair of 4-0 losses at Auburn Saturday afternoon.
 
In the first match, Samford won the No. 3 doubles match with Max Rebol and Aleksandar Petrovic defeating Tim Dollman and Anders Fry, 6-2. Auburn, however, won the doubles matches at No. 1 and No. 2 to earn the first point of the match. The Tigers then took the singles matched at No. 1, No. 2 and No. 5 to earn the 4-0 win.
