Looks like Stanford has it Easy for the 1st 2 rounds. then we will probably play USC at college station. Stanford has beaten them before so should be a win there. but then, most likely next up will be Virginia. hopefully, virginia will choke there.

anybody with knowledge of SEC tennis? particularly Kentucky? Wake Forest is probably looking at a second round matchup with the cats in Lexington if they can get past northwestern

Kentucky is good. not great, but good. the guys that play on the team have been together a long time as quite of few of them went to Bolliteri together.

Finished #2 and didn't get a home match? Something very fishy about that.

If, by some catastrophy, Stanford doesn't make it, it could be Ohio State vs Virginia in the Finals. This should be a interesting match up. With Chase added to the lineup, Ohio state may have a decent chance here.

Im ****ed that Northwestern got in over Indiana who beat them in regular season and went further in the big 10 tourney. The NCAA has to be the worst organization in sports, what a joke all round from bad selection in the basketball tourney through the whole bowl fiasco.

Cry me a river. There are too many teams in the tournament anyway. No team in the 33-48 range will win more than one match.

Northwestern has big time influence in BIG 10 conference and in turn NCAA. so it didn't surprise me that they got in. also they have improved a great deal over last year, and their #1 player had some impressive wins.

I do agree with the lack of upsets but the selection seems to be pretty much based on a very bad ranking system.

There are regional geographic rules in place that prevented them for hosting first 2 rounds. Also, they may not have filled out the proper paperwork. The Championships handbook can be found on the NCAA website if you wanted to look at the geographic rules.

I would say the first tier includes not only Virginia, Ohio State, and Ole Miss, but also UCLA and Baylor. The winner should almost certainly come from this group.

The second tier includes Texas, Texas A&M, Georgia, Tennessee, USC, Stanford, and Florida. It is possible, but not very likely, that the winner could be a team from this second tier that gets hot, but it has been a while since such a thing happened.

Fedace

OK, NCAA singles selection has been posted. From Stanford, Alex Clayton and Bradley Klahn has been selected to compete in the singles event. Could this be Clayton vs Klahn in the finals this year ?

Because I think they have no margin for error when they play another top team. In the indoors, they had a little bit of lineup stacking, with Varela down at #6. They knew that Malo and Bernstein were not going to win against top teams, so getting one point from 4/5/6 was as much as they could hope for. Then they had a mini-stack in doubles, swapping their 2nd and 3rd best teams so they could get wins at 1 and 3 and sacrifice #2 doubles. They are pulling that same doubles stack again, swapping 2/3 teams just since last weekend's SEC tourney (!) in the lineup they submitted for the NCAAs. But Varela is up at #4 singles now where he belongs, making his job a lot tougher.

Georgia has to win 1/2/3 singles and 1/3 doubles to beat a top team 4-3. That could happen, but it leaves no margin for error at those positions. They are very strong at those positions, but not unbeatable. There are some great #1 players and #1 doubles teams in the NCAA field, for example.

Georgia is a 4 seed largely based on making the finals at the indoors where they worked their lineup stacks to perfection and squeaked by in the easier half of the draw. They are now in the tougher half of the draw for the outdoors.

Georgia deserves a lot of credit for what they have done in the past, and they will have more depth next year as some more recruits arrive. This just isn't their year.

I have no idea how TAMU courts play but UVA needs fast courts and little to no wind conditions to win

If the courts are playing slow, then they have no chance

While they may play slow for an INDOOR court, indoor courts play much faster than outdoor. And yes, TAMU's courts play pretty slow.

You don't go 29-0 without being able to win on all surfaces.

OleNole
05-01-2009, 11:20 AM
Speaking of the surface, if it doesn't benefit UVa, who does it benefit? Certainly not Ohio State, who plays almost all of their matches indoors. I don't know about who else.
Maybe it gives A&M a shot to make a run? I tend to think that team has more talent on it than it has shown. Even without home court, they should have a shot to win 1-4 against every team in the country.

chrisplchs
05-01-2009, 11:21 AM

I don't mean that they will lose to FSU if the conditions don't suit them but rather, it'll be a harder match than they wanted.

UVA is most vulnerable on slower surfaces as their 1 reminds me of Goran, 2 hits very flat ball, 4 is S&V player, 5 is Karlovic

What I'm saying is that if the surface is as slow as yall say it is, then they have no chance of winning it all. Absolutely none

Oh i see. but i think Stanford will perform really well on that slow hard courts. Guys like Hirshman and Muller has the tendency to get overpowered by big hitters and do little better if the courts are slow. Klahn and Clayton can play on anything.

Uh...no. First of all, UT is not "my team" I went to UCSB, they are my team. UVA did stack against Texas, but it's not a big deal, UT played Damico at #5 against Baylor, and Baylor does that type of thing all the time. I just don't think anyone should go around pointing fingers accusing teams (in your case Georgia) of stacking when a lot of teams do it. By the way, I agree that UVA did not play well against Texas, and they should win it all if they play up to their potential. Also, you should calm down a little, personal attacks are really not necessary.

Lineups are out. Stanford's Alex Clayton, who has won the US Open Jrs. doubles isn't playing doubles at the NCAA's. Anyone know why?

Also, there's some nice stacking going on (Varela at 6 for UT), but some fairly notable teams chose not to stack, Kentucky being one. I know people have different feelings about this. I'd stack in a second if I thought it gave me a better chance to win a national championship.

Doubles isn't Clayton's specialty. I'm pretty sure even Dr. Fedace would admit that Bruch/Kelly is a better choice for #3 doubles. Klahn/Thacher are the obvious #1, and Muller/Wire are a pretty solid #2 for them..

One of the requirements of hosting a site of the 1st and 2nd rounds is that there must be sufficient indoor courts in the area in case of rain. So, they will be moved indoors.

No, they didn't. If you are going to make allegations, back them up with data.

I'll do the legwork. Virginia went Inglot, Shabaz, Singh, Barrick, Rooda, Courtney at single and Barrick/Singh, Inlot/Shabaz, Courtney/Singer at doubles. Here's where someone might think there was some stacking:
Going into that match, Inglot was ranked 18, Shabaz 16 and Singh 12, and Inglot and Shabaz both lost while Singh won.

But by the same logic, Sajous should have played 3rd that match instead of 5th. Also, even if UVa did stack, that was not the reason they won. Texas won 5 of the 6 first sets and only managed a 3-3 split in singles, then Kutrovsky and Zavala lost after bring up a break at 2nd doubles.

http://www.virginiasports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=88817&SPID=10610&DB_OEM_ID=17800&ATCLID=3693699

For the record, while I believe UVa did not stack for this match relative to how they usually lineup I do think Courtney at 6 is better than Rooda at 5.

reesespiecestennis
05-04-2009, 12:30 PM
Boland said either one of those three are goodenough to be 1. It's interchangeable. I have been to 3 UVA matches and I do believe that courtney may be a bit better than rooda but either way rooda put a win on the board.

It was funny at the BC match they sat out inglot and shabaz and still won 7-0. I think in that match they stacked because they had nguyen at 4 and courtney + singer at 5-6

reesespiecestennis
05-04-2009, 12:35 PM
And the difference in the rankings was incredibley slight between 1 2 and 3. Same goes for doubles. Singh+ barrick are beast as well as shabaz and inglot.

Agree with Wood. Clayton stays back way too much in doubles and gets in trouble. Alex also insists on hitting passing shots in the alley and the opponents catches on to this pretty quick. Kelly as slow as he is, does close in to the net pretty well. and his huge serve really helps him get some easy 1st volleys.

ClarkC
05-05-2009, 09:13 AM
Also, there's some nice stacking going on (Varela at 6 for UT) ...

Miguel Reyes Varela usually plays #4 but he has been hurt recently. If you check Texas' recent results, you will see him missing some matches with injury. It is not unusual to play down when you are recovering from injury.

Also, playing your #4 down at #6 means that two players (your #5 and #6) are disadvantaged by playing up, while only one is advantaged by playing down. That is the opposite of stacking. The only way that lineup change provides some tricky advantage is if the coach thinks they will lose all three bottom matches and is happy to just get one win. That is highly unlikely for any of the top 16 teams. No top 16 team wants to blow two matches to win one.

People really do need to learn what stacking means before they toss around allegations. Picture a stack of plates. Pull one out and put it on the top of the stack. That is the idea captured in the word stacking for tennis lineups. Pull your #4 or #5 out of the stack and put him on top, pushing 3-4 other players down. You tell the other coach, "Yeah, that guy used to be #5, but he has done really well in challenge matches lately at our practices." One guy gets sacrificed and has no chance of winning, but several others improve their chances. That's stacking. There are more subtle forms, but what Texas is doing only makes sense if there is an injury -- and there is.

No, we have a whole season of evidence regarding Georgia' doubles teams. Their lineup has been tuned strictly for tournaments. After the indoors, they reverted to the lineup that is not stacked, because most of their matches are not as tough as the final 16 at the national tourneys. It helps to win as many as possible in the regular season to get your seed high. Then, with the SEC tourney over, they switch back to their national indoors doubles lineup when they submit a roster for the outdoor tourney. This is not a one-match phenomenon here. A one match change can be due to injury, illness, slump, etc. Georgia has a season-long record of manipulating the doubles lineup for tournaments only.

On the other hand, Singh was in a brief slump when we played Texas. He flew to India to compete on their Davis Cup team, got a minor injury, then got sent back to the USA when the team flew to Taiwan for the Davis Cup tie. He got back to Virginia and looked terrible in doubles and singles in our dual matches that week. Check out the results of our match (http://www.virginiasports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=88817&SPID=10610&DB_OEM_ID=17800&ATCLID=3690116) against Old Dominion, our last decent opponent before our Texas trip. The coach tried to reward him for his stellar record so far that year by playing him at #1 against an opponent he would normally beat, and it turned out badly. He played terribly at #1 doubles, costing us the match, and then lost #1 singles. I was there and saw it. It was very unusual for a player of his ability. So the lineup changed for the Texas trip (although the Baylor match got rained out, so we only played Texas) because of his form. And he was not really in great form against Texas, either.

All of this was pointed out to you earlier in the thread about the Texas-Virginia match.

Miguel Reyes Varela usually plays #4 but he has been hurt recently. If you check Texas' recent results, you will see him missing some matches with injury. It is not unusual to play down when you are recovering from injury.

Right, and I did just that the other day. The idea that Varela at 4 constitues stacking comes from the Texas College Tennis blog where I found the rosters for the NCAA's and some analysis. What I was trying to provide an example of is that many schools have altered their rosters, not all necesarily seem like they will benefit the team. I saw a lot of this with doubles pairings getting broken up and flip-flopped. As I've already said, stacking is a non-issue for me because I know if I was in that situation I'd do whatever it takes to win a National Championship. I just think coaches get a little too into change for change's sake when submitting their rosters.

I am posting below the rules regarding line-ups in dual matches if this will help the discussion on "stacking." There are reasons and allowances for line-up changes from match to match.

K. Team Line-ups
1. Exchange of line-ups and scorebooks. One hour before the start of the
match, the coaches shall simultaneously exchange their complete
singles and doubles line-ups. The ITA Scorebooks shall show all team
results throughout the year up to that day. If a coach does not have his
scorebook, the referee shall send a letter to the ITA Ethics and
Infractions Committee.
2. Only physically able players shall be listed in the line-up. Coaches shall
list players in the line-up only if they are able to play.
3. Players must play in order of ability. The line-up shall always be based
INTERCOLLEGIATE TENNIS ASSOCIATION (ITA) REGULATIONS 257
on order of ability. “Matching up” is prohibited. In singles, players must
compete in order of ability with the best player on the team playing at
the No. 1 position, the second best at No. 2, and so on through all
positions. In case of injury or sickness, all players must move up. This
rule shall also apply to doubles play with the strongest doubles team at
No. 1, etc.
a. A player who has established a winning record at a team position
in six team matches and whose results show that he clearly is
stronger than the players below him may not be moved down. The
line-up must stay in order of ability.
b. If a top-six player (or team) clearly is stronger than the player
immediately above him, then the player must be moved up a
position.
c. Players of equal ability and equal record may alternate between
two adjacent positions so long as the alternating is not done for
the purpose of “matching up.”
d. A player shall not be moved down in the line-up because of:
i. An injury that has lasted and forced the player out of the lineup for less
than three weeks;
ii. Disciplinary measures; or
iii. Challenge matches after six team matches have been played
after January 1st of a school year.
4. Line-up changes in back-to-back dual matches. In back-to-back dual
meet matches (two consecutive dual meet matches played regardless of
time between matches), the team line-up (as played) may be changed. A
player may move up or down one position in this situation. The line-up
must still stay in order of ability.

Stanford should sweep past everyone in their path like a Hurricane. There isn't anyone that can stand up to them. They are playing the best tennis of any team in the tournament right now.
Upset pick would be UCLA. I like their mental makeup. Their mental toughness in the tournament like this can take them a long way.
I also like Furman tennis to upset Alabama in the 1st round. they promised they would do some damage this year...:)

I predict Virginia, but as I posted earlier, there is a top tier of Virginia, UCLA, Ohio State, Baylor, and Ole Miss who can all win it. Texas and Texas A&M have the tournament in their backyard, are used to the heat and wind and other conditions, will have great fan support, and can certainly pull off upsets. But I think the final winner will be from the top tier I listed.

The lineup must remain the same from 1-5 for the whole championship tournament. The team may switch the #6 spot with their 6-8 players from match to match. In case of an injury, all players move up to fill the spot vacated by the injury.

I saw Texas v. Washington this past weekend. Kutrovsky and Corrie are in good form while Damico struggled a little bit before closing it out. Varela is in pretty good shape as well (although his opponent was a bit overmatched). I do think that Texas needs to step up the doubles a little more though in the next couple of rounds.

It looks like the seeding was pretty accurate with 13 of the 16 seeded teams making it to the round of 16. Only seeds 10, 11, and 14 failed to make it that far.

The SEC still looks strong with 3 teams in the final 16 and all of them higher seeds than their next opponents. Even though Ole Miss is the overall #2 I sure would not want to have to play a hot-as-fire A&M team next.

Who would be the biggest surprise so far, Boise St., Wake, or Miami?

My vote is for Miami given their record coming into the tournament, and of the three I would also have to give them the biggest chance of beating their next opponent (UCLA).

justacityboy

Miami is an interesting team to watch. I've seen them play twice and they have looked putrid in doubles both times. They are however, very talented singles players and I'd give them a fighting chance to upset anybody. They took UVa to a 4-3 decision at home during the regular season so they've obviously got the talent to play with anyone.

Texas A&M is one of those dangerous teams with three outstanding players and then a drop-off after that. Georgia and Tennessee are somewhat the same pattern.

If the top three from Texas A&M are hot on their home court, Ole Miss is in for an unusually difficult round of 16 matchup.

Woodrow already posted about this kind of matchup-seeking, and you replied that the USTA should enforce the same for team matches, it is such a wonderful thing to have such strict rules against stacking.

Now, you ask if Stanford can pull this trick to seek a matchup it likes. Incredible.

I seen it happen before. Maybe it was because there were some injury issues to the player in the cases i have seen. but i have seen higher ranked player playing lower spot. Not sure what the circumstances were there.

During the season, you can change your lineup. During the NCAA's, the line up is locked in from #1-5 for the whole tournament like I said before. #6 may change, and the lineup can only change due to injury, but you can't interchange 1-5.

Thank you for the clarification.:) One other question, during the 2nd round at Stanford, on #1 court, there was some really questionable Over-rules. Umpire was overruling lines that was far away from the chair on what looked like very close call. These balls didn't look like it was any more than 1/2 inch out if at that. and this happened several times. and of course, Alex wasn't happy and he was arguing. also earlier the Ump ruled in favor of Alex on a shot that in the far corner that was really close as well.

Is there a rule or guideline that Ump must follow in over-ruling a call in NCAA ? It must be much tougher job for the umps since there is no linesman...:???:

No overrules in the video there at all. The rule is that it has to be a clear mistake. And yes there can be clear mistakes on the far sideline. I overruled on match point on the far sideline during the Cal vs. Pepperdine match on Friday.

The lady in that video is a very experienced official. She would not overrule far sideline unless she really saw a clear mistake. Just for a little background, she has umpired singles finals at the US Open in the chair.

Any chance you can tell the player to shut-up? Surely the player in that video, Beidas, was constantly infringing on the rules as they relate to hindering an opponent. The video will have a lag but, even so, it did appear quite obvious that the bulk of his 'noise' was coming well after he'd hit the ball and much closer to the moment when Clayton was hitting his shot.

If Clayton had complained, would you have warned Beidas ?

Texas A&M is one of those dangerous teams with three outstanding players and then a drop-off after that. Georgia and Tennessee are somewhat the same pattern.

If the top three from Texas A&M are hot on their home court, Ole Miss is in for an unusually difficult round of 16 matchup.

Hoover has really ended up becoming a huge asset at #6 too, they would probably be a top 5 team if the #2 and #3 doubles would win a match every now and then.

Normally, Stanford grads should realize that, but since you never passed anything higher than kindergarten, you haven't realized that yet. And have you got anything against Mexico? I have a few contacts from my school that happen to live in San Diego. Would you like one of them (or more than one?) to pay you a little visit and show you what it's like to be from Mexico?

Basing someones Academic and Collegiate achievments by the level of their posts on a tennis talking website is completely irrelevant. I don't understand you NickC. You constantly rip on Fedace for his posts, when he is clearly taking the pi$s out of you half the time. You constantly correct him for spelling errors, I mean come on, what does 1 spelling error make? And honestly, do you think that for every single second of every single day, people have to spell correctly, and formulate sentences to the best of their ability?

I rip into him because he made a very insulting post to me about a sick (as in life-threating sickness) a family member of mine (after I had explained the situation to him), and when I posted a message simply requesting an apology and nothing more, he whined to the mods and I got a referral and my post was deleted. His still stands. If he made a simple apology by manning up and admitting his mistake, I would have zero reason to rip into him. Unfortunately, that's not the case.

OK, I apologise, I didn't know that. But surely, he meant it (as bad taste as it was) as fun, and it was taken overboard. Surely everyone on here has done that before, and knows the embarassment and humiliation when that happens? Surely we should be able to forgive and forget and get back onto the topic!

Cheers for the response, mate. I figured it was fun as well, but Fedace made a "Your Mother" joke after I had already explained to him what the situation was. I had just simply told him the real deal, and asked for an apology. I got a referral. He whined and eventually walked away untouched.


But anyway, I think A&M will go far this Tourney, as home court advantage is clearly working for them so far and they've got a hell of a team. I spoke to a buddy of mine who attends A&M (he was a good friend of mine during the first semester of my Mexico adventure) and he says the team is downright nasty. Wouldn't be surprised if they made a nice run out of it.

Don't believe that story about his sick relative. I have NO IDEA what he is talking about. This is the first time i have EVER seen it or read about it. If he is saying i had anything to do with it, it is a LIE to cover up why he is stalking me around the forum.... and i already have got in touch with local POLICE about this matter when i was in Ojai, just so that if he becomes a real life stalker, i will have Police record. :twisted:

It's interesting that Fedace considers anyone who challenges his opinions and wild predictions to be a stalker. Granted, NickC can go a little overboard with the criticism.

I generally try and inject a little humor into the situation and tend to make fun of the mis-spellings, grammatical errors, etc. For this, I am branded a stalker by the good doctor. As many of you know, I have given my real name, location and occupation many times, just so people won't be uncomfortable. However, this does not seem to be enough, I am still branded a stalker who's behavior warrants a call to the Ojai police.

Then they had a mini-stack in doubles, swapping their 2nd and 3rd best teams so they could get wins at 1 and 3 and sacrifice #2 doubles. They are pulling that same doubles stack again, swapping 2/3 teams just since last weekend's SEC tourney (!) in the lineup they submitted for the NCAAs.

i see that Fedace, they've stopped showing all the matches on the grandstand courts.... they're probably trying to reset them to get the lineups right for stanford - usc doubles....

Some kind of Heated Argument going on with Nate and the Umpire..??????? This is with Shnugg serving for the Dual match and now break point...

Yeah. I don't know what that argument was about. At first I thought that Spicijaric didn't get to the ball way back in the corner before the second bounce, but that's not something that the referee could come to the court to discuss, so I don't know.

I think he was trying to claim a let when all the Illinois guys stood up in the stands when the guy was about to put away the overhead...

UGA wins 4-3.

this is killing me, they've blacked out every court with action on it. The only thing I can watch is the Georgia guys stretching after their match.....

It was the same link you had. It was working until I hit refresh, now it's not working anymore. I should have just left it alone. I was thinking if I refreshed, the scores would update. WRONG.. :-(

How did you get to the live feeds for those courts ?? I briefly saw that USC up 1-0 which means they won the doubles. then it quickly blanked out.

All of the singles matches webcams should be working now. Live stats are working except that the names haven't been changed. Pretty sure Stanford is the bottom team listed in each match. So Stanford up a break on 4 and down a break on 2.

Someone on-site emailed that Stanford won the doubles point. Not sure what the truth is at this point.

what about the feeds for UVa and FSU? They have 3 courts up... the 3 not being used for doubles :evil:
