This is one of the most dominant show of tennis power in this region in years. Stanford is well represented in this tournament. Cmon Denis Lin.......

STANFORD, Calif.- Next up for Stanford is this weekend's Wilson/Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Northwest Championships, with competition scheduled for Oct. 23-27 in Berkeley.

California will serve as the host school for the event, which showcases top players from the following ITA Northwest region schools: Stanford, Eastern Washington, Fresno State, Gonzaga, Oregon, Pacific, Portland, Sacramento State, Saint Mary's, San Francisco, Santa Clara, UC Davis and Washington.

In singles play, Stanford will be represented by five different players. Junior Alex Clayton and sophomore Bradley Klahn are the tournament's top two seeds, respectively. Junior Greg Hirshman (No. 5), senior Richard Wire (No. 5) and Matt Kandath (No. 17) are also seeded in the draw. Of those players, only Kandath will have to play a first-round match. He is opposed by San Francisco's Alex Kotlyar.

Junior Ted Kelly plays Fresno State's Hugo Verdi, freshman Sam Ecker faces Fresno State's Rikus DeVilliers, freshman Denis Lin matches up with Eastern Washington's Nico Reigo DeDios and freshman Walker Kehrer battles Saint Mary's Steven Dawson.

Four doubles teams are in action. Klahn and Thacher are paired together as the No. 1 overall seed while Clayton and Wire are seeded No. 5. Both squads have a first-round bye.

The freshman pairing of Lin and Kehrer faces San Francisco's Einar Hart and Ola Bakke while Hirshman and Ecker take on Portland's Daniel Coehlo and Nick Wales.

OK play is underway. Denis Lin playing at Hellman stadium courts at 12:30pm. His match is the only 1st round match at Hellman with webcams. Cal decided to put all the other Stanford boys on the OTHER courts.......... Underhanded if you ask me..............

WOW incredible domination. Matt Kandath knocks off the #3 seed from Washington,,, 7-6 6-1. With Talents like this, how can we lose in coming season. I see Undefeated season coming next year....

The top teams should dominate their regionals unless there happens to be two top 16 teams in one regional. For example, in the Atlantic regional, Virginia put 6 players into the quarterfinals and now have 4 in the semifinals. In doubles, 3 Virginia teams are in the semifinals. But the new regional alignment has a Carolinas region that pulled away most of our competition from the old Mid-Atlantic region.

Stanford is in a regional with no Southern California teams. What would you expect under those conditions?

I think this tournament is to showcase some of the new talents at Stanford. such as Matt kandath, and Dennis Lin. They had some impressive wins in this tournament. #3 seed that matt knocked off on saturday is a very talented player from Washington. :)

Klahn will take it out.

I got a question, too.

I see schools like Portland, Sacramento, places like that with players in the draw. What level are these guys at? Im really keen on college I just wonder what sort of level they are at.

i was watching a sacramento guy and he looked around 4.5-5.0. I'm sure that's disputable though. it might be lower

Fedace,
Which team member are you?:confused:

Careful, TT. Your post might be interpreted as trolling and/or making fun of a certain "physician". I have had posts removed for less.
Oh, ehhh, soorrry about that. But, in my defense, I was just adding up the evidence and thought, well, this surely is Bradley Klahn with a hangover.

So, let's see, he obviously has intimate knowledge about the team (i.e. he indicates that he has lunched with the team in the past) and he uses 'we' when talking about how the team is doing, he talks about the coach like an insider (talks about conversations he has had with Coach Whit), and, on and on. Well, you see, that's why I thought ... I mean, I just added two and two together and yep ---- he might be on the team!

YOU are RIGHT. We have a new champion. Bradley Klahn. Look for him at ITA national team indoor championships next month at Yale. I have a feeling he will bring home the championship to Stanford where it belongs. We are behind you all the way, Bradley.
I hear that Yale has a Livecam as well, lets hope that is true.

How big is klahn, I've seen him play a little bit on TV and he's got a pretty big game.

Bradley Klahn -- 6'0", 150lbs, Poway, CA (Poway HS)

He is not that big. his game is more based on speed and taking advantage of lefty spins and creating angles.:)

He's good, but I just cannot see him winning the National Singles Championship next year...

True that, but his game works very well at the junior and college level. It woul;d be interesting to see if he makes it on the tour.

I REALLY hate saying this. but i don't think his chances are all that great in the pros. I would love to see him prove me wrong, however...

Hey, Moe!

The fall ITA tournament series is a good thing, and it is well worth watching. It is a good opportunity to knock heads in the fall.

However, I do believe that for many of the players, it is not quite a "100-percent" kind of thing. Maybe close, but not quite.

Rug-cutting time comes in the winter/spring, when the conferences start up.

Trust me, I've seen it time and time again.
