    I'm a little disappointed Sarmiento didn't give a better fight.

    i'm a little happy that boland doesn't know his players as well as i do

    otherwise, if domi had taken care of nguyen, we might have had to deal with uva finally having an ncaa title - the horror!

    I know Steve Johnson is way better than most everyone in college but the mystique factor is playing a role in all these lopsided scores. People have been like "wow I'm facing Steve Johnson" and lose in their heads before they hit the court. For instance I watched a good part of SJ vs Cunha in the quarters on Sunday. You could tell Cunha did not think he was going to win, even though he has beaten Johnson in the past and has the type of game to bother Johnson if he fully committed to it.

    MikeJ how happy would you be if Duke swooped in and stole a title next year with the new players Redlicki,Semenzato and Levine before UVA can? ( I think this is a legit possibility)

    It's like they are playing Federer 5 years ago. Everyone gets tense to be the guy to step up and do it.

    Levine has a very slim chance of starting in singles

    Tough to beat someone that reliable from the baseline.

    Look at Neal Skupski doing his thing. I thought Doumbia would win that match after a shot of confidence after beating McMorrow. Doumbia gave SJ a tough match earlier in the season would have liked a rematch

    yup, i think both duke men and women make final four next year with legit title chances, but you never know what happens in the off-season / who gets injured / etc, so we'll see

    of course that would be pretty fantastic

    i'm also looking forward to nostra/feddie and dawgie dawg pretending that stanford and UGA are relevant next year as they try to rebuild (then again, you never know how much talent Manny steals from around the country, so i suppose they might be on the radar again if he does a good job of that)

    doumbia can't even win important matches at #3, i'm pretty confident he wasn't going to end StevieJ's streak

    It's going to be a rebuilding year in Athens for sure, unless Pasha and Hernus improve immensely by then. We'll be solid, but not quite in that top 4 or 5. As far as "stealing" talent goes, I don't know the reasons behind KU transferring, but Nacho transfer was to be closer to home and Wil took a year off for personal reasons before coming, so I don't see either of those as being all that egregious. Can't speak for past instances though.

    He seemed to play better when he played #2. He played Johnson tough at Indoors and lost 4 and 4 I believe. Could have been competitive at least.

    oh, i mean i consider it stealing, but don't misunderstand me as having a problem with it - if you can make that pitch for your program and be successful, go for it - to the winner go the spoils - i have no concern of him stealing a player away from Duke and Ramsey Smith, so steal away

    and yeah, i think Doumbia is the type of guy that plays up to his competition - he perhaps would have been better served by playing at the top of the lineup like UVA did with Jenkins

    Good point. One of the top college players a few years back said that just about every time he stepped on the court, he knew he had the first set won based on the intimidation factor that his opponents had.

    I totally get what you're saying. And don't have a problem with it either. But I don't think player's are content, see Manny strolling along touting UGA, and up and leave their program. They have to want to leave, at least a little bit.

    Frank has no chance vs Spencer. He will be scared from the moment the umpire says "play". The dawg pound will be mean mean to Frankie Jr. This guy lost to that goofus from Ohio State remember. He is very over-rated. Spencer will dispose of him.

    I don't think Frank is scared of anyone including Klahn or Johnson. Frank knows on any given day he can beat the best in college tennis. so that kind of confidence can carry you a long way.

    I don't know if Skupski is going to continue. He was laying on the ground for a couple of minutes.

    I bring up live stats and it shows Skupski serving at 3-6, 5-5, 0-30. Crucial moment. After a while, it suddenly says 3-6, 5-6. So, Steve Johnson obviously broke and will serve for the match. But the serving asterisk still points to Skupski. I go away from the computer for a minute, come back, and it says 3-6, 5-5, 0-0, Skupski to serve.

    Let's just say that the LiveStats are interesting at this tournament.

    Nevolo's singles career comes to an end with the 6-4, 6-3 defeat to Rola. Many thanks to Nevolo for lots of memories and victories. He'll play rola again today in the doubles draw. Good luck Dennis!
