The incident happened on Friday, as the No. 6 Aggies made the trip to Columbus to take on No. 2 Ohio State.

Wolf defeated Kypson in three sets, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Kypson was disciplined for his actions and did not appear in Sunday’s match against No. 24 Texas Tech.

Texas A&M's statement to DeadSpin:

“Sportsmanship and respect are pillars of the sport of tennis and Texas A&M, and Patrick Kypson’s actions at the conclusion of his match at Ohio State were counter to that. He has been appropriately disciplined for his behavior. Patrick’s not only remorseful for what he did, but is acting on that to show that he learned a valuable lesson. We will support him in that effort. We have addressed his actions with him and with our friends at Ohio State.”
