    Obviously injured, because his overall record is 0-0. Has not played since May.

    Not much of a loss, he's never been that good.

    It looks like the ACC has 3 poor teams this year. Miami, BC and GT.

    Two great teams. Duke and Virginia.

    then 3-8 are basically at the same level. Nobody of the middle pack stands out as the worst or the best.

    Hearing that Duke's Beatrice Capra was suspended from school. That's gonna hurt them.

    Big loss for the Duke women.


    Meanwhile Juan Spir's free-fall continues. Loses another match in straight sets to an unranked opponent. 6-4 6-1 to SDSU's #1 player.

    Yikes so much for my NCAA title prediction. No inside info but knowing many people who have had contact with Duke's judicial process, well, semester and beyond suspensions dont't even enter the discussion unless it's something really big deal. We're not talking underage drinking or other fairly common undergrad things.

    Kahan has been out too - hopefully she gets back soon so this team can at least try to be top 5 or so.

    And hopefully Capra comes back next year ready to make better decisions.

    Capra was standing near a member of Duke's judiciary committee and was overheard saying, "You know, Tar Heels are not such bad people as everyone says." Punishment was swift and severe. She should be thankful it was only one semester.

    From the ACC, Virginia and duke advance to the ITA National Indoors championships. No surprises there. I thought North Carolina might have a chance but they lost to Tennessee.

    Virginia Regional
    #1 Virginia swept North Florida and dropped one match against Arkansas.

    USC Regional
    #60 Georgia Tech lost a 4-3 decision to Fresno State and then got swept by San Diego State.

    Ohio State Regional
    #64 Miami won a close 4-3 with LA-Lafayette to earn a beatdown at the hands of Ohio State.

    Pepperdine Regional
    #33 Florida State barely beat Drake 4-3 and then lost a close one to Pepperdine 5-2.

    Duke Regional
    #5 Duke swept both Middle Tennessee and Northwestern, while #43 Virginia Tech lost 4-3 decisions to both Northwestern and Middle Tennessee.

    Ole Miss Regional
    #41 NC State beat out Louisville 4-2 but got swept by Ole Miss.

    Illinois Regional
    #18 North Carolina won a close 4-3 over Tulsa but lost 4-1 to Tennessee

    3-1 Wake Forest. Tiebreak on court 3 for the 2nd set. If Kreyman can win it than Wake will shut the door on Louisville and win 4-1. If Simich takes the tiebreak then its game on as a 3rd set will decide it on courts 3 and 2 and UL leads on court 6. Big big tiebreak

    Kreyman won that tiebreak 12-10 apparently, gutty.

    Wake is a lot better. They only had 4 players last year as 5 and 6 were sure losses every time they hit the court. They added Jonathan Ho who looks very good early on. Sam Bloom isn't working out though. I would try Morgan Mays in the line-up soon. This team would be top 25 caliber if Renier Moolman had stayed on board. He would have been #4 behind the top 3 and pushed Ho to 5 and Lee to 6. Lee at 6 is scary.

    Louisville has dropped this year but I was impressed with WF today too. They're going to be a tough out. Duke coughed up a hairball today. They're better than that so probably a wake up call for them.

    well Rakitt's comeback has given GT a little hope. Melian must rally against Cox, that is a match that Melian should be winning.

    Andrew Adams was too busy getting his *** kicked by Daniel Nguyen at the Dallas Challenger. Nguyen won 6-1 6-1 while Adams threw in 10 double faults for good measure.

    UNC-Louisville doubles point might be decided by three tiebreakers.

    Good. It's never a bad thing when Andrew Adams loses.

    41 Louisville knocks off 19 North Carolina

    So Louisville loses to NC State and Wake but then beats UNC. What does this say about North Carolina?

    Louisville got blown out by Columbia last weekend too. A bad weekend so far; maybe Wake Forest will salvage it by beating Michigan tomorrow.

    Boston College is just so bad. They really need to try something different.

    NC State really blew it against South Carolina. Won doubles and took 4 first sets. But Norenius(who is proving to be a good freshman) and Thompson blew their set leads. Both were playing better players in Adams and Pinhiero but still disappointing for them that neither could hang on. By the way SC playing Cox over Adams is crazy, just crazy. Needs to be challenged.

    - Very tough los for Wake against Tennessee. Reminds me of Clemson's crushing 4-3 loss to the Vols last year. Tough for Ho to have all that pressure on him, his first real pressure spot in college. Hopkins is a good player but over his head at #1 against the better teams and that is slowing Wake just a bit. Although Hopkins did have a nice win over#21 Silverman after the UT match, I would try Prabhakar at #1.

    Looks like either Mihov really has improved or his opponents so far has not been good players because had he stayed at OU, he would not crack the top 4 this year, yet he has been winning at #1 for South Carolina... tough to understand.

    I used to think that BC didn't give scholarships but I heard a few people say that they indeed do give tennis scholarships.

    NC State got beat pretty handily by VCU.

    Clemson with two wins over teams ranked above them. That will move them up in the rankings.

    UVA solid as they have been lately. And the young man Harrison Richmond from my local league area has been getting some playing time. And I think he won an ITA atlantic singles. Also solid at dubs with Domijan (of course who wouldn't be...)

    Virginia Tech got a decent win over Michigan State. The Hokie top 2 really battled hard to win. That's a tough top 2 they have but VT is weak at the bottom.

    Miami is playing better than last year but until they play more matches, that's probably about right.

    Miami has shown more this year that I expected. So while I have them at 9 they will probably beat one team above them, maybe Virginia Tech because of the matchup. VT will easily take 1 and 2 because that's their strength but that's ok for Miami because their strength is depth anyway. Miami can take 4-6 from VT.

    The middle of the ACC is so densely packed. 3-8 is very close. All of the teams in there have strengths and weaknesses. There will be many 4-3 matches.

    Decent win for NC State over UNC-Wilmington. Disappointing for UNCW as they can't quite grab a win over a major conference team. They will get another shot in two weeks at Clemson.


    It will be interesting to see how FSU does in the rematch vs Pepperdine. It's in Florida this time(although not at FSU). Pepperdine is smarting from the indoor event where they didn't fare so well. FSU is well rested. I expect a better fight from the Noles today vs Pepperdine. That loss to Florida is looking worse by the day for FSU.

    Louisville continuing there ACC tour vs Virginia Tech today. I think Louisville will win this but it will be a tight one.

    Miami goes down to North Florida 5-2 today. Really close doubles point and then dropped 5 of 6 first sets. Was too big of a hole to climb out of. Record at 6-3, Texas Tech next.

    Virginia Tech falls to Louisville like I suspected they would.

    Bad loss for Miami to UNF. Is Flores hurt?

    I don't understand why FSU plays Anderson Reed so high in the line-up. Bucaro not even in top 6 anymore and what happened to CGM?

    Don't care too much for the girls tennis, but that is a BIG win for Memphis. Lee Taylor is a first-class guy and coach and deserves that one.

    UNC looking very very vulnerable on men's side.

    Flores played 2 dubs only against unf..haven't heard if hurt. Miami never fails to disappoint me anyhow.
