Egger and Mathou had advanced through the Pacific Draw to the semis where they took on Aaron Cissold and Daniel Sardu of Oregon. The match went back and forth with neither team giving an inch and a tiebreak seemed inevitable. Egger and Mathou earned a match point, but could not convert and eventually fell, 9-8, 7-6 (5).
It was a tough loss for the duo, but as new doubles partners they will grow as the season progresses.
The other Husky to compete on Sunday was Dragos Puscalau in the semis of the Northwest consolation round. Puscalau won the first set 6-2, but then lost the second set 6-0 and the super-breaker 10-4 to Matt Oddonetto of Idaho.
Next up for Washington will be the Nordstrom Open, another home event. The tournament takes place November 16-19 back at the Nordstrom Tennis Center.
