Williams led 3-0 after doubles play behind wins from Alex Schidlovsky and Trey Meyer, Felix Sun and Matt Micheli, and Brian Astrachan and Brian Chow. Each won by a score of 8-3. 

Williams continued their momentum into singles play and were able to win all six matches. Matt Micheli lost his first set at number three, but he was able to recover in the next two, 6-1, 6-0. Howie Weiss needed two tiebreakers to win his match. Brian Chow won his first set and led 4-2 in the second when his opponent retired due to injury.
