Just saw this and thought people here would be interested.

Men's Team Draw:

Women's Team Draw:
http://www.itatennis.com/Assets/ita_assets/pdf/NCAA+Championships/2010+NCAA+Championships/2010_W_Team_Bracket.pdf

Most interesting (potential) matchup I saw in the men's draw -- if it plays out according to seeds -- is the quarterfinal between 4) Ohio State and 5) USC. I like SC in that one - but I'm a west coast/PAC-10 guy ;-)

If USC makes it out of that section, Stanford will be waiting for them. REVENGE for the loss from last year.....

On more serious note, I think Stanford will meet Virginia in the quarter finals. It was a blessing in disguise that Stanford was seeded #8 and not #7. IF seeded #7 then they had to have player Tennessee in the quarters which is not a good match-up for stanford. and we get to host the 1st and 2nd round at home which is another Plus.

NO you did !!!,,, more triplicate,,,don't you love them. anyway, UCLA has no chance,,,,i am 100 % sure about this.

I'll go out on a limb with my prediction:

Men's final will be USC vs winner of Tennessee vs Texas

IMO too tight to call beyond that.

I suppose you could say that is spineless of me. If you already knew who was going to win then what's the point of playing?

This is going to be exciting, and I have to support my team Stanford to get to the semis. Quarters should be no problem, but then Virginia is the big favorite. If Stanford can pull this, they will become the favorite to win it!

Any interesting 1st round match-ups this weekend?

I'll be interested in the Arizona (30) vs Minnesota (35) match-up in Austin. Both teams have identical records and Minn won a pre-season match against UA . Winner of that one most likely faces a daunting match-up vs Texas (3) in Austin in 2nd round.

Washington (25) faces Rice (33) in Waco (?Baylor), and winner likely faces Baylor (7).

Looks like most of the other PAC-10 teams have a fairly easy 1st round.

I think at least 3 if not 4 of the 6 PAC-10 teams will make the round of 16. Other thoughts?

False. The video and scoreboard are not working. This the only regional where I can not view the live stats. I can take an educated guess as to who will win the first round match between Stanford and Quinnipiac, but I would still like to see some scoring updates.

I can't believe Illinois lost at home to Wisconsin. Wasn't expecting that at all, but kudos to the Badgers, who have improved tremendously in just a couple of years.

I didn't like how that section of the draw was like a mini-Big 10 championships with Michigan, Ohio St. (who plays Wisconsin next), Michigan, and Illinois all present. It would be nice for these teams to see someone else. But, I guess that could be said for the teams from other conferences as well.

You just don't normally think of Wisconsin as an elite tennis program. When I was in HS it was Michigan and Minnesota, then every now and then someone else. Anyone who was not familiar with the Ohio State program in the 80's has no idea the job Tucker has done there. They had Roger Smith and a few guys here and there but not much else. Same goes for the Illinois program.

lol! Some things never change. There used to be the term "godding it up a bit" (reference is Gordon Forbes "A Handful of Summers").
This was a referral to the top players on the tennis circuit pretending to be a bit special....it was a way of giving some guys a reality check.

I guess Stanford breeds this mentality??
College tennis is NOT the real world.
There are some good, sometimes exceptional players coming through but they keep it real...they know how tough the futures/challenger circuit is.
They have a long way to go before they can start "godding it up a bit" :)
Have fun. Try not to take it seriously.

Alex Clayton was dropped to #3 on the lineup card Whitlinger submitted to the NCAA's. That is such crap.

should be a good match. Virginia can't play very well outdoors....

Bet the house on Virginia. "The Doctor" says they don't play well outdoors.

I think he would have taken the christians over the lions.

UVa dominates doubles, wins all 6 first sets in singles, defeats Duke 4-0. Not bad for a team that cannot play very well outdoors.

I look forward to more of these predictions.

Was lucky for SC that Farah closed out #1 when he did. Momentum was starting to shift as OSU was close to winning 2nd set of remaining matches, and taking #5. Not to say that it would be easy to win all those matches - though if Buchanan took 2nd set @ 1 and OSU won 5 it would be a big momentum shift into a dramatic finish.

Doubles is THE KEY when top teams play each other. Last year, if USC didn't win the doubles at 3, they would have had no chance against that Ohio State lineup.

UCLA is as talented as advertised and seems to bring it in big matches. Them winning doubles is huge. I am already wrong on one prediction but I don't think I'll be wrong again today.

one of the top coaches in college tennis that I am good friends with told me that it is all about individual matchups at NCAAs. That is why I have seen some teams drop their 3 or 4 player off the lineup to get a better matchup.

Seguso is a great matchup for UCLA at 5 against Barrick. Barrick likes to come in, serve and volley and Seguso has one of the best returns in college tennis. Matt Brooklyn at 3 is tough for anybody even if you have never seen him play. He was All Pac 10 and played 1 at ASU before they dropped their program and played 1 last year for UCLA. Inbar played 1 at Maryland before he transferred and was respectable 5-5 record against other 1's in ACC dual play.

UCLA should win, unless they pull a Srugo again

Virginia should win, because they are the better team, although they played sub-par in doubles. It won't happen the same way in singles.

They will be worn out by the time they are done, however. That is worrisome, because Ohio State laid down and USC is resting.

I've asked former UVA players and they are still amazed they haven't won it yet. The best chance they had was 2008 where the line up was Somdev, Huey, Dom, Sanam, Shabaz, Teddy Angelinos. Sub in a great doubles player in Barrick for Teddy and that team is nasty.

On paper, that team is unbeatable but after talking to some people in college tennis, the difference was Flores coming back to UGA after taking the fall off to try the circuit.

UVA next year returns, Shabaz, Sanam, Jarmere (assuming he stays), Courtney (who I view as almost unbeatable at 3 or 4), Urigen. Another solid team that could win it all, depending on how they come back.

I don't see Jarmere Jenkins turning pro. I also don't think there will be any big surprises a la Devin Britton around the country this year. I cannot see anyone turning pro early. The only possibility is a top international recruit who comes in at an advanced age and does not want to play college tennis until age 24 before trying the pro circuit.

The only player who fits that bill is Henrique Cunha of Duke (and Brazil), who is a 21 year old freshman. But I think he will play a second year. Honestly, UVa might need to be challenged again by Duke next year, because the ACC has been too much of a lull in between the ITA National Team Indoors and the NCAA tournament every year. We try to schedule Baylor. Texas, Notre Dame, and Illinois every year, but the latter two have fallen off a bit lately, and all four of these matches are well before the NCAAs each spring. The Illinois and Notre Dame matches are always early and indoors.

We are not being tested often enough outdoors in the heat prior to the NCAAs each year. The Pac-10 and SEC teams test each other pretty often throughout the season. The ACC had a stretch a couple of years ago where Florida State, Miami, and UNC were all really good, but the last couple of years have seen a lot of good but not great ACC teams. Typically, the second best ACC team is about the #16 seed.

Sometimes we UVa fans think it is great that UNC or Duke or FSU is graduating some great player, but that might be shortsighted on our part.

chrisplchs
05-24-2010, 05:56 PM
Cunha is not 21. He just turned 20. He is very likely to go pro as many pros think he isn't really tested in college but he tried the circuit for an year already and only got to mid 600s.

As for Jenkins, people are not worrying about him going pro. There are other factors with him.

Duke is going to be better next year. Arnould just never improved and virtually stayed the same from the time he was Les Petit As winner. Saba and Mengel are good players who are likely to crack the lineup somewhere. Duke would have been great this year also except admissions got in the way of two freshmen who are also top 50 players from entering Duke.

FSU is likely to drop off with Aubone and Vahid graduating. They had a pretty nasty top 4 for a while but could not really do a whole lot with it. Miami has dropped a lot and doesn't show much signs of getting better. UNC is interesting as they lose Donato and Crone. They have good talent but mentally, some of their players are extremely weak.

The problem with ACC being consistently good as that there really is no history with ACC Men's tennis. There have been some good team but no NCAA champions, not even a finalist. Virginia has been the only team semifinalists and even that has been recent.

UT beats UGA 4-2 in the face of a hostile home crowd. They have to be a heavy favorite against USC tomorrow. They will have a home type crowd in Athens.

About the singles I have to disagree. If UT's Rhyne Williams wins the NCAA singlesor is runner-up it would not shock me if he went pro. He has won a Futures title or two while in high school. Also if Tennys Sandgren did not join the team mid-year he is another who if he has a successful summer could go pro as well.

UVA had just as good a shot as anybody in the final four to win it this year. USC was just better on this day. I didn't see today's match but I watched Sunday's singles vs UCLA in Athens. Sunday- Shabaz looked unbeatable, Singh was up and down, Jenkins could not finish off points at the net, and the #6 guy was in the zone in his third set and probably would have beat anyone on that day. Today Shabaz loses, Jenkins wins, and the #6 guy loses in straight sets.

His power and placement on the serves has improved so much over last year. and now he can rip a ground stroke winner from anywhere on the court. It wasn't like this last year. so that tells you how much he has improved.:)

Just a guess but I believe SoBad was asking if he was going pro this summer. Am I right SoBad? With the current track record of Standford players he should turn pro now before he gets worse. :)

I would agree with you. Not sure how much it will help but UT is sending a bus or two of peeps from Knoxville today down to Athens for the finals. It was cool how they were arranging the bus plans on their live blog in the middle of the match against UGA. Not that they were being cocky but they had to get an idea of a number of folks interested in going there to schedule chartering the buses with late notice.

Go VOLS!!!

Thanks for that Ė I actually think that ďmaybe top 100Ē is conservative on Klahn. Getting through qualies in futures and making a few main draw rounds, while a college student, is actually very good. If he decided to pursue professional tennis (and he should at least try), I would be very surprised if he did not hit top 100 ATP.

Yeah, I donít know much about Klahn, but his game looks so good, and he seems to have good results considering he is in college, and was just looking for input from someone like Fedace with thorough knowledge of Klahn and the intricacies of NCAA tennis. These guys are so difficult to predict Ė after watching the Isner Ė Devvarman NCAA final, I thought Devvarman would have a shot in the pros and Isner would not (especially seeing how GA linespersons called in every Isner serve that didnít land outside the doubles alley), but look at them now. Itís all about the weapons, I guess. Leftiness can be a weapon though, so Klahn could make some noise with that.

It must be some special logic they teach at StanDford,,,

Where I went to school:
+ Being ranked 83 vs 111 in D1
+ Winning a head-to-head match for the team championship,
+ Being named Most Outstanding Player for the team championships
are all attributes I'd consider superior.

Pros is about weapons but also about figuring out what they are and how to best use them.

Isner, up until a year ago, was still around 100, playing in challengers, etc. Until he realized that he should adopt a Sampras-like approach to his game (conserve energy by going for big shots on receiving game instead of rallying and put pressure when opponent throws a double or a couple of loose points), Isner was around the same ranking as Somdev. Also, Isner's ceiling was and still is much higher than Somdev. Somdev is definitely better than college but he was already playing close to his potential his senior year while Isner had a long ways to do before realizing his.

I see what you are saying, but also note that Isner got lots of love from USTA, while Devvarman got none, and in fact got stiffed on the US Open wildcard that an NCAA singles champion might expect. His career could have developed differently if he somehow got a US passport out of his UVA tenure.
