To open doubles action, the freshman teamed up with Andres Martin, collecting a 6-2 win at No. 2 over UNCW’s Jonathan Baron and Bekhzod Rasamatov. Arora then pocketed his second doubles win of the day later in the afternoon, with Richard Biagiotti at No.3, as the pair dominated Mercer’s Samuel Barrow and Samuel MacLeod, 6-1. 

In singles action, Arora defeated UNCW’s Trey Mallory in straight-sets at No.5, 7-6, 6-3. In the second match of the day, Arora proved to be the clinching win against Mercer, defeating Marceau Fouillhoux with identical 6-2 sets.
