    UCLA will be so deep next year with a returning former #1 singles plus Marcos Giron a.k.a superkid. I agree that they'll most likely take the Pac-10 if Johnson goes pro and have a really good shot at the NCAA title too. I really don't think Daniel Kosakowski should go pro. Albeit he played the top spot as a freshman, he was far from being a dominating figure and has a lot to learn and prove in college tennis. He is still hanging around on the outskirts of the higher college echelon and having another year to improve his ranking will do him good. Phenomenal college guys like Steve Johnson and Bradley Klahn reached the #1 national ranking and won the NCAA individual title respectively yet still decided to return. I hope Daniel will look at his pro chances realistically and make the right choice, otherwise he'll be just another journeyman slugging it out in the futures/challenger circuits.

    Virginia will take a big hit by losing Shabaz and Singh. These two guys have been rock solid for them the past few years. I can't see them filling up this void enough to retain the top seed next year. Aside from Domijan, I think the rest of their guys will have trouble playing up a spot or two.

    Kosakowski's freshman year has been similiar to Britton's was. Therefore he should NOT go pro

    For the last time, Kudla is a professional. He turned pro in January 2010.

    A couple words about the guys playing up.

    Drew Courtney made the quarterfinals of the All-American this year, taking out Rola (OSU's #1) and Gomez (GT's #1) in the process. At the USTA Training Camp for college players in November, he beat Austin Krajicek (Texas A&M's #1) and Eric Quigley (Kentucky's #1) before losing to Shabaz in the final. If he had not re-injured his foot in the second round of the tournament, there is no doubt in my mind UVA would be celebrating a national title right now.

    Jarmere Jenkins was one of the two 2 or 3 recruits in the country two years ago. He lost only 5 matches all season going into the single tournament. Went undefeated at the #4 spot in the team event. Beat Klahn last summer in the Futures event that he eventually lost in the Final. Beat Kudla also last summer. Won a Future doubles title (ironically, over a duo from USC). He and Courtney beat Johnson/Nguyen in a doubles match in another event.

    The Virginia fans have all kinds of faith in these guys.

    I don't think Nick Meister can play #1 next year ahead of Kosakowski. Beyond that statement, I think UCLA's lineup is very hard to predict with Puget, Thompson, Giron, and Meister competing for #2. That means one of them is at #5, which is pretty darn good. Maxime Taba Truong will certainly compete with Mkrtchian at the bottom of the lineup.

    Yannick Hanfmann, the German recruit for USC, will be likely to be a better singles player than Sundling and Grant. If Johnson returns, their lineup looks good enough to contend again if Hanfmann is as good as the press release indicated. Eric Johnson, incoming blue chip recruit, will contend with Grant and Sundling for a singles spot at #6, I would think.

    As for Georgia's lineup, don't forget that Manny Diaz is probably touring the campuses of Texas and Texas A&M (along with small colleges with one top player) as we speak, looking for transfers. :)

    Duke could be in the mix. Losing Carleton but gainin Tahir and Swiss recruit Hemmeler. Also Saba and Mengel were only Freshman and will likely improve. Hammond will also make improvements.

    One wild card every year is that graduation causes a juggling of doubles lineups. Cannot predict the new team chemistry or lack thereof.

    They'll be somewhere 10-16 in the rankings next year I would guess. Even if Carleton is the only guy graduating who was playing at the end of the season, he's a big big loss in both singles and doubles.

    Not sure if either Mengel or Saba will have a ton of success against quality teams if they have to shift up to 2 and 3, respectively, so I'm hopeful that one of those two new recruits (or someone we haven't even secured yet - a la Cunha's late signing) can step into the top 3 and keep that big shift from happening. Don't know if that will be the case, however.

    As long as we hang onto Cunha til graduation (which I believe we will), Ramsey's real shot to put together an impact team is going to be two years from now - if he can add a couple more great recruits during that time. Next year I'd be happy with a #12 ranking and a berth in the final 16.

    A third straight win over USC would be nice, too.

    Based on the beatdown he just took from Johnson, he should realize that he is not pro-ready.

    Georgia is the favorite next year. Pasha is the best freshman coming next year. He is a good deal better than Frank or Giron, I know this.

    Pieters was unbeatable at 5 and 6 this and because he is so young will only get even better, Could be a top 50 player next year. Spencer will make a top 10 move. Doumbia will get better as well.

    You just know Diaz will have the boys fighting in the fall and ready for the spring season. 2012 in Athens, belongs to the Dawgs!!

    Pieters was 9-7 at the #5 position coming into the NCAA tournament. 9-7 and "unbeatable" don't agree very well with each other.

    we can split hairs all day but here are the facts:

    when it mattered(NCAAs) he was 4-0, romping past that Marchesse charicature.

    He is 17

    His game is the type that can get better exponentially

    He will be top 50 next year.

    Also Nathan Pasha. He will be the best baclk player in college tennis next year. he is far better than Jenkins or Bangoura who rely only on athleticism. Pasha has athletiism and technical ability, pure ball striker.

    and don't dare give me the the left handed fluff ballers King and Gonzales Austin.

    Does a 3,2 loss to the incoming duke freshman make him the best freshman? how about a 3,2 loss to a freshman at florida who didn't even start? what about a 1,1 loss to fratangelo? those results don't seem to be ones of the best incoming freshman- pasha will be good no doubt about that but he has been struggling recently.

    lol, you think I want aplayer who peaked in 10th grade? Pasha has lots of room to improve, like Pieters. Not some guy who is declining already when they hit college.

    Maybe you mean to speak of his strength in doubles? For that, I agree. In singles for dual matches, he had bad losses to UK twice, Ole Miss., Miss. St., and Florida. That's far from dominating.

    What do you guys think of Texas next year? I have been very upset at the direction of the program lately. So far big recruits like Holiner and Chen have been busts. And the international guys not so good either. Recruiting talent evaluation seems to have slipped mightily. We got our program to national title contendors and now we are not

    I don't think Holiner and Chen have been busts. They do need to stay healthy, they are still young, and Chen was only the #18 blue chip a couple of years ago. Holiner is only old enough to be a freshman this year, but he enrolled early in January a year ago so he is a very young sophomore.

    International recruits tend to sound better than they are in press releases. Mladenov and Sitaram are good players but they are not the kind of guys who play in the top 3 in the lineup. Jean Andersen is an excellent international recruit who will be a top 3 guy for his final three years, including the season that just concluded. The problem is that Corrie and Damico are graduating, and no international recruit has been another Kutrovsky.

    Guess we will have to see how the Danish recruit works out. If he is not a top 3 guy right off the bat, then there will have to be a big leap forward by some of the younger guys for Texas to contend nationally. In the Big 12, all of the top schools are suffering major graduation losses, not just Texas, so they will contend within their conference regardless.

    I will hold the opinion that he is a sock puppet until proven otherwise.

    not sure if Austin Krijcek has pro career ahead of him. He has grown big time. Much taller than he used to be. with bigger serve too. maybe he can be as good as his uncle.

    The problem is you are assuming that each player will stay in their slotted spot and jjst move up in exact order. Not how it really works. I for one think that ore will make a move and jump to 2 next year

    GT has only been "consistently" good as a team over the last 4 to 5 seasons. They've had standout players from year to year but only recently has the team been deep enough to compete with the top teams day-in and day-out. They're losing (have lost) five seniors this Spring so there's room for new talent. 2011-12 will be a rebuilding year for GT.

    As far as the graduation rate, almost all players graduate but not many of them head off to the pros. And if they do, they don't really make any significant waves.

    the only reason i do that is because i dont know enough about the teams to know how much each player should jump. i dont follow all of them, and this is the most realistic way to do it. but based on what you said, i put junior ore below the two rising seniors for experience sake.

    yes they can if they qualify .. Austin Krajicek won it a couple years ago after he did his freshman year at Texas A&M.. as long as you are under 18 and 11months .. then you're OK..

    I am sure they will get more talents from Germany. Who are some new talents coming out of German tennis federation ?

    Not sure what Florida has coming in next year, but they aren't on the radar of tr.net. They need to bring something big in to replace LaCroix at the top. I can't see them improving enough overall to simply bump up players and be successful.

    I think UGA has a good chance at a really solid season next year. After underperforming in the 2010 season, they really over-performed this year with a team that had to get to know each other really quickly. I don't know enough about the players of other teams to say who is/isn't better, but to make it as far as they did this year was sort of unexpected. I think if they train hard they have a good look at a similar run next year.

    I think the Hungarian recruit will play #1 for Baylor as a freshman, and the German will play #2, but it will still be a rebuilding year unless they have more surprise recruits on the way before January. Peers, Ramirez, and Rux, their top 3, all graduate.
