    It's 2014 and like clockwork you have a prediction for Standford mens tennis. Surprised you didn't pick the Cardinals men to win it all as you have for about the last 10 years. Maybe you did and I missed it. Looks like you are finally losing confidence and recognizing the decline of your program.

    Kentucky beat Duke 4-3.

    Duke got their share of the premature tiebreakers (three out of seven, including the doubles point clincher). Hard to believe that Beck Pennington is up at #2 and almost beat Saba. Duke better get Redlicki healthy.

    not sure how to gauge these early matches with the crappy format, no-ad is more lucky than anything. Would be curious to see Duke/KY play normal.

    Looks like Memphis pulled out a squeaker over Ole Miss, 4-3. Odd line up match ups. Almost looked liked the coaches purposely did not match guys up against player who had previously played each other before. Don't think in this event the match counts as a dual win.

    The VCU LiveStats had the 5-2 score correct, but when you added up the matches, it looked like 4-3 UNC because they reversed the tiebreaker scores on #2 doubles and #3 doubles. Thanks for posting the correct scores.

    UNC rested Esben Hess-Olesen. He needs to get healthy for UNC to reach its potential. 6-1 or 7-0 with him playing.

    Indiana surprisingly in the hunt in the doubles with it looking like UK wins at 1, IU at 2 and #3 deciding. i was expecting a 7-0 defeat so there is some promise even though its eaarly doors yet.

    I tried to find out who the newcomers are for Kentucky, but their roster is an interactive slide slow, one player per page (very annoying), and it is from last spring. Shows Anthony Rossi as the senior captain, etc. Somebody at UK needs to get on the ball.

    Do they still play out once someone reaches 4? I am confused about the new rules.

    I just wish they would fix court 1's camera. It's the best players but compared to the other 5 courts it is the most blurry camera.

    Looks like Pepperdine will struggle with depth yet again except this season not nearly as strong at the top. You can see the Ferreira influence already on the team, which will take some adjusting but will be good in the long run, since he is one of the better coaches in America.

    Florida has its singles lineup listed and it's interesting - Newman, Watson, Piro, Orkin, Diep, Alford.

    Diep and Alford rolling at 5 & 6 as expected. Gators will need to pull out at least 1 in a 3rd set though to get the win with Watson and Piro dropping 1st sets and Orkin dropping the 2nd.

    looks like Florida is doing a lot of sacrificing to make 5 and 6 very strong.

    So it looks like Mkrtchian won't even be able to get into the lineup. How can this team not win the title this year?

    can't say I'm too happy with my Gators although I do think this new format will cause some upsets. We need Hidalgo and he better be good.....was hoping we would be top 10 this year
