He lost in the second round to Texas Tech's Bojan Szumanski, 6-2, 6-4, however rebounded to win the back draw with a 6-2, 7-6(3) decision over Callum Beale of Texas.

Kohlloeffel and Pampoulov were the top-seeded doubles team in the tournament, however pulled out of the draw to concentrate on singles play.
