    This was too good not to share. From his ITA Hall of Fame acceptance speech:

    Jay Berger:
    "One of the funniest things {while I was at Clemson was when I played} in the US Open and made it to the Round of 16 and I played Yannick Noah. I lost in four sets on center court of the US Open and was interviewed by Brent Musburger, who was a very famous commentator at the time. I got home the next day and coach [Chuck Kriese] did make me play a challenge match to make the team. Two days later, in order to earn a warmup, I had to run the mile in 5:15."

    Clemson adds Alexandre Favrot to the 2016 recruiting class. He was as high as #54 in the ITF junior rankings. A lefty. He has a UTR of 14.08.

    He should undoubtedly play at #1 next year

    Do you mean 2015 recruiting class? Players who commit in 2015 and can start playing in the fall of 2015 are considered the 2015 class. I ask because it seems hard to believe that he is committing a year in advance, as he turned 20 in February. If he knows he wants to switch to the college route, I would think he knows right now.

    Yes that's what I meant. I assume he will play in the fall of 2015.

    Team looking a lot more lefty oriented now , with Favrot, Pinazo and Navas coming in.
