    Will Brian Boland agree to the ESPN Matchday format on March 23 in Durham? Obviously Duke agreed to it, or the match would not be listed. But Boland has been an outspoken opponent of the scoring changes. Ty Tucker refused to kowtow to ESPN in their road match at Notre Dame. This will be interesting to see.

    This may not confirm it, but the Duke tennis website says the match will be on ESPN3. If the coaches continue to fight ESPN3 and do not allow any of the better matches to be on it, ESPN3 will not be back.

    The singles are played first with regular 2 out of 3 set scoring. The match stops upon clinching, which seems to have become the norm anyway this spring. If it is tied at 3-3 (unlikely), then there are 3 simultaneous 10 point TB's with the winner being the first to win two, which would be very exciting to watch if it happens.

    I really do not know why Ty Tucker got all worked up, but I guess he likes doubles first. He does like the clinch rule apparently, as he has used it several times this spring.

    The match will be on Sunday afternoon at 2 PM vying against PGA golf, the NBA, and the round of 32 in the NCAA playoffs. I expect that maybe 5 people will choose to watch the tennis over that other stuff, outside of a few tennis nut jobs on this board.

    Big match tomorrow with Wake Forest at North Carolina.

    Doubles is a toss up.

    UNC is favored at 1 and 2 as they will be in most matches. Although Bogaerts could have an inspired day and win but Schnurr still gets the edge.

    Kan vs Clark will be very tight but Kan will probably edge in out.

    Hess-Olesen didn't play vs NC State. That will be key vs Wake. He needs to be able to play to match Ho at 4.

    5 and 6 have been struggling for Wake recently

    Overall I expect UNC to win this match like 5-2. Wins by Kan and Ho for Wake.

    Wow according to UNC scores, Wake is effectively conceding 5 and 6 by putting Bloom and Kunz in. Laaribi and Dumont have been struggling but they are still far superior to Bloom and Kunz.

    UNC wins 4-0 without Hess-Olesen. Some more program building to do at Wake for Bresky, who is a very good coach. It will take a while to challenge the top of the ACC.

    Not many expensive private schools with no particular tennis fame or reputation can get to the big time (meaning top 10) with only 4.5 schollies and a roughly 60K all in cost. I have no idea what has happened at Stanford, but only USC and maybe Duke seem to be able to fight the tide and be a contender. USC is still good, but not nearly as good as they were when they won it 4 years in a row.

    Bloom got destroyed. He had an abysmal record at #5 and 6 in 2012 for Wake. Him and Tsai would get shellacked every match, Wake really only had 4 players in 2012. I have no idea why Bresky decided to revert back to 2012 today with Bloom at 5. Choosing Bloom over Delcore,Dumont,Laaribi and Billa is beyond baffling.

    Kunz did get a win at 6 but that was also vs UNc #8 or 9 Skattum.

    is the acc the best league overall right now??


    1. Virginia, clear no.1, does not matter to me, that UNC has overtaken them in ITA Rankings, they play at UNC and at Duke, if they win both, they will move up very high in the rankings again, maybe evden Top4

    2. Duke - we could ask, if they are too high compared to UNC, but they sit good on 2, they ve beaten UNC and last week took Oklahoma to the wire (plus sweeping SDSU), north carolina sits pretty close, i know. If UNC can beat UVA i have to rethink...

    3. North Carolina - had a fantastic week beating Texas, NC State, Wake Forest, they did not dissappoint so i move them up over Notre Dame as predicted last week. Really like their 3 freshman, best freshman combo in ITA (okay UCLAs is also very amazing)! Amazing that Schnur is playing College first, he could ve gone pro easily.

    4. Notre Dame , had no match this week, so they fall behind UNC...

    5. Clemson- . took out FSU, but still had some problems, i switch them with WF this week, but only cause WF loses too much matches, their resumes is nearly the same

    6. Wake Forest - had no chance vs UNC, but took Texas to the end. (they now lost 2 times vs the Longhorns by the score 3-4...)

    7. NC State - lost very close to a very good UNC team (and their own livescore had them as winner until the morning...)

    8. Florida State -lost at Clemson after hard fight, still same problem, who is better? FSU or NC State? They play each other this weekend !

    9. Virginia Tech - beat Washington and only lost very close to a good Boise team. i do not want to drop them behind Miami, especially after the close loss at Boise.

    10. Miami Getting better each week, 4-game-winning streak , but this weekend will get a tough test vs Wake Forest and NC State. (beat both and u are getting into NCAAs consideration...)

    11. Georgia Tech - not played, but things looking badly after 5-game-losing streak (how bad is South Carolina, after they earlier lost to the Yellow Jackets?)

    12. Boston College - nothing to write anymore....it is not worth the research...also i like their players to play every match also they know they ll lose it....

    There's weird stuff happening at Duke, IMO. Last weekend Redlicki sits out both Dubs but plays singles? What's that about? Doesn't sound like an injury, sounds disciplinary. They forfeit the #2 dubs against SDSU and then Hammond doesn't play against Oklahoma? Sounds like an injury. Instead of Pura they play Levine who seldom plays dubs? Sounds like Pura might be injured or also might be disciplined. Things just don't seem right for them. I also think they don't match up well against UVA.

    I'd be more confident of UNC's chances against UVA if they had a #5 or #6 who could score points consistently. Plus their narrow win over NC State puts a dent in any enthusiasm I originally had for them to upset UVA. Not saying they don't have a shot, but UVA matches them at the top of the order. If Frank is healthy, he takes out Schnur. I'd give the slight edge to Domijan and Shane at #2 and #3 and it seems Hess-Olesen still hasn't recovered his form from his injury.

    If Hess-Olesen was 100% UNC could potentially contend for a national title. Assuming 2013 form, which isn't guaranteed considering the tinderbox that he is.

    the Top4 of unc can really challenge UVA, but the #5 and #6 will not have a chance, uva is the same on all 6 positions, and unc is not.

    Hess-Olesen should be a very strong #3 if healthy and in form, i.e. favored to win most matches at #3 even when UNC plays the best opponents on their schedule. That would make Brett Clark a very strong #4, push Jack Murray down to #5 and Steiro to #6. Then there is the fact that Nelson Vick has never regained his form after a fall injury. Really, he should be a strong #5 with Murray pushed down to #6 (assuming Hess-Olesen were healthy). That would be a very tough lineup.

    The only senior contributor is Vick, so next year's team (with three freshmen having matured) will be quite good if everyone is healthy and if Schnur comes back. I guess there are always a lot of "ifs" in these discussions.

    NC State at FSU will be a good one. FSU MUST win this match especially at home. Last year when these 2 met 5 of the 6 matches went to 3 sets. These are two of the most vocal teams around so it will be a very fiery match. I expect Powell and Mudge to breakdown Cotrone and Davis at 1 and 2 and NC State is also a mild favorite at #4.

    I think Schnur has a real shot at #1 against Frank, but Domijian should dominate Schneider at #2 with his serve and ground stroke power. Clark would have to play really well to get a win against R. Shane, and Jack Murray won't get a set against Styslinger. #5 and 6 should go both Virginia way. I'm thinking 5-2 Virginia today.

    Goldin rallies from 2-5 down in the 2nd to deny NC State a point on the board and extend it. FSU looking good now

    I thought UNC would at least get a point. Especially at home. I thought Schnur would have a better chance of a win at two, but, I guess, Domijan is getting back into form after a lengthy absence. No way Duke upsets UVA in a streamed match, especially after being tested by virginia tech. If you're Duke, do you put Saba at#2 to go against Domijan, whom he beat last year? Or keep Tahir there, as he has been playing pretty well there? I'd go with Saba. I always thought it counted for alot to have beaten a player before.

    Georgia Tech beat BC 6-1 and Tech only had 5 players and forfeited #3 dubs and #6 singles.

    Big win for FSU today. Desperately needed that one. Now they have reeling Wake coming in Sunday. Winnable match for the Noles.

    Smart decision to flip CGM and Davis

    Interesting that Bresky is continuing to tweak with 5 and 6, and today has Kunz playing 5 in this just his 3rd match of the year, and Dumont back to 6.

    Kunz has been doing ok. But I wonder why he isn't giving Billa or Delcore a shot. They have both had nice wins at #6 before

    Kunz has played well. I watched some of his match against Skattum of UNC. When he had Billa at 6 earlier I was shocked that he was that high on Bresky's list. I'm definitely surprised about Delcore, and maybe even Mays, who I haven't seen in the lineup any. Coming into the year I thought Delcore would for sure be top 6. Billa and Mays weren't even on site at UNC.

    I still don't think Kunz is truly ACC level though. At least if Wake wants to get back on track.

    Goldin with a big two games on #6. Was down 4-3 and now is up 5-4. This is huge because Kan looks like he is in the clear on court 3.

    Anyone know what the story is with Mac Styslinger? He seems to be out of the lineup as often as he is in it this season.

    FSU closes out a big weekend by the Florida schools. Both Miami and FSU sweep NC State and Wake, big boosts to their rankings coming.

    Did they ever say anything about Redlicki? I didn't see him with the team at the end so I assume he was sick.

    Something is definitely wrong with Wake. While 13 may have been high, they are better than they've looked lately. I hope to go to Clemson-Wake next Sunday. That should be a competitive match.
