    Really blew that doubles point. Madens had several break chances in a long game at 5-4 and had 15-40 on UNCs serve at 6-5. Didn't convert then lost 3 straight games.

    Need Harrington and Meza now.

    Hess-Olesen cramping like crazy. Has hit the deck twice in writhing pain. Can barely walk and just crushing every forehand with mixed results.

    Rigsby up 6-7 6-4 2-1
    Meza fighting to stay in it down 6-7 4-5

    What's the score? None of the scoreboard seems to work.

    Yannick Finshes the match 4-1. He beat EHO 6-3 7-6(4).

    Rigsby and Meza in 3rd sets. They will play it out.

    Video of the 2nd set breaker between Maden and Hess-Olesen. This clinched the match for Clemson. EHo had already fallen 3 times at times at this point because of cramps. He moved better in the breaker but in the games just before the breaker he was limping around and just thumping every ball as hard as he could.

    There is some controversy at one point about a line call. UNC coach gets on the official and had to get a coaching warning.

    Hello Clemson tennis. I have been reading this thread a while and find it to be a great read. I wonder what are your thoughts on South Carolina's players and our team this year? I am happy with the way we are playing, they are doing better than I expected this season.

    Also I went to the Clemson game this year. I was impressed with Austin Ansari the most because he is just a freshman. I did not think Hunter Harrington was very good but that could have bene just that day as I see he has been doing better.

    I'm surprised Clemson dropped 6 spots in the rankings. I guess there was a significant punishment for losing to #9. The rankings of our best win teams went up (Auburn,Alabama) Florida State dropped a tad. South Carolina went up so that is no longer a bad loss. I was expecting more of a drop to 21-22, but oh well

    Of course, it takes a week for all of the ranking improvements of Clemson opponents to boost Clemson's ranking. They will move up a week from now by just grabbing a win over Virginia Tech and watching the computer do its delayed magic.

    Virginia tomorrow. Our recent history against Virginia is not that bad considering the difference in the two programs recently.

    2006: Clement Reix had a win over Somdev Devvarman.

    2007: 5-2

    2008: Gera Borachinskiy defeated Dom Inglot.

    2009: In Virginia. 3 singles matches went to super-tiebreakers and Clemson won one of them with Kevin Fleck beating Houston Barrick 11-9 in the tiebreak at #4. Rok Bizjak lost a tough one to Shabaz 10-7 in the tiebreak and Galloway fell to Eelkman 10-7 in the tiebreak.

    2010: This was the biggest rout in recent years. Clemson pulled off an upset at #1 doubles and the doubles point went down to a tiebreak at 3. We had a chance. Until Rok Bizjak double faulted 3 times in the tiebreak and Clemson lost the tiebreak 7-1. Singles were all easy Virginia. Only drama was DiFazio taking Shabaz to a 2nd set tiebreak where there was a little bad blood and Shabaz called Clemson's assistant coach "retarded"

    2011: At Virginia. All singles routinely to Virginia except for #3 where Kevin Galloway pulled off a legendary win over Sanam Singh, saving a set point along the way. Win of his career.

    2012: Last year in Clemson. Rigsby killed Oudshoorn 6-0 6-4 at 6 and Harrington had a super-tiebreaker lead over Courtne before losing it. Frank bicycled Meza and the other singles were routine.

    so in the last few years only 1 7-0 match. Not too bad.

    Hahaha, so let me get this straight, Clemson has lost to Virginia by the following scores:

    6-1
    5-2
    6-1
    6-1
    7-0
    6-1
    6-1

    So in 7 years Clemson has won 7 points, I don't know, that doesn't sound very close to me

    2006 was also 5-2.
    Like I said taking into account the positions of the programs. Virginia dominant national team and Clemson going through a rough patch from 08-12.

    A few things about the UVA match.

    There was a moment late on, Harrington had just taken the 2nd set, Yannick had just saved 2 mps and tied it at 5-5, Rigsby was still in the 2nd with Styslinger and Dom Maden was withing touching distance of Shane, where it was good to be a Clemson tennis fan. The team showed fight. It showed how much the team has progressed since last year.

    Yannick Maden had a set point vs Jenkins but could not convert. Jenkins hit a massive court cracking forehand down the line at 6-6 in the breaker than set up match point which he converted.

    Harrington played great all match. Domijan didn't even have any break points all match. It was definetly less than 3. He did play a poor tiebreak though. Domijan finally got the break in the 3rd after Harrington fought back from 0-40.

    Meza played well early, hitting some nice angles and keeping Frank working. He went up 3-2 in the first. But eventually frank grinded him down. Meza had to hit too many good shots just to win one point.

    Ryan Shane really hits the cover off the ball on the forehand. I didn't watch a lot of this match but Dom dug in the 2nd set and Shane started to spray errors.

    Rigsby had a chance to win the 1st set tiebreak name Styslinger just came up a point short. Didn't go away in the 2nd and made Mac work.

    Uriguen played well and was teeing off on the mid court balls vs Ansari. Uriguen was up 6-0 2-0 and missed a forehand into the net and threw his racket.

    Tigers dominate doubles, 8-6 8-2 8-2.

    Lovrinic for VT doubled faulted at least 8 times.
    Wibowo was all over the court in doubles, very good performance.

    Tech scoreboard is wrong. Dom Maden is at 4, Rigsby at 5 and Ansari at 6.

    I feel like I've been teleported to Buenos Aires watching the Dom Maden/Olivera match. Heavy topspin grinding.

    Clemson 4, Virginia Tech 3


    Doubles:

    Clemson played very well in doubles. #3 was a blowout from the beginning with Lovrinic of VT throwing in double faults like crazy. It was a mismatch of doubles teams. #2 started close with Koontz hitting some good passing shots but eventually Ayrton Wibowo took over. He was all over the court and volleying great. He hit several volleys from the service line off of shots that should have been putaways for VT. Rigsby and Wibowo rolled through them and won it 8-2 taking the last 6 games. At #1 there were several breaks in the first few games. The Madens won the last 3 games to clinch the win over team ranked higher than them. This win likely solidifies their spot in the national doubles tournament in Urbana.


    Singles:

    1. 73 Amerigo Contini def 24 Yannick Maden 6-2 7-5
    Contini has a flashy effective forehand. He can hit several angles and gets good pace on it a good mix of spin and power. Maden can struggle against players with a solid powerful groundstroke as he did last year vs Luka Somen. Maden also did not handle the wind very well. Contini led 6-2 5-1 40-0 and it looked like Maden was done. But Maden fought off the match points and started to get his teeth into the rallies and eventually made it 5-5 in the 2nd. Contini broke at 5-5 and served it out to avoid anymore drama. Good fightback from Maden.

    2. Hunter Harrington def 94 Andreas Bjerrehus 6-3 6-7(1) 6-2
    Harrington went down 3-1 in the 1st set but rattled off 5 straight games after that. Harrington served for the match at 5-4 in the 2nd but got broken and then played a poor tiebreak to give the 2nd set to Bjerrehus. Bjerrehus struggled all match with wind as he double faulted many times including one that bounced before the net. His weapon is taking his backhand early and redirecting it down the line. After giving the 2nd set away Harrington forgot about it and played well in the 3rd set when things were starting to get tight and VT fans were starting to get into the match. This was the clincher. Harrington should be in the rankings now after this match.

    3.Hunter Koontz def Gerardo Meza 4-6 7-5 7-5
    Meza should have won this match. Meza is more solid at the baseline and led 6-4 3-0. They played a long long game at 3-0 with Koontz won and that ended up being the turning point in the match, if Meza wins that game and goes up 4-0 then no way Koontz comes back. Koontz has the ugliest forehand this side of Chip Cox in the college game but it can be effective as it has odd spin and doesn't give the opponent a good look. Harrington clinched the Clemson win after these two had played 3 points in the 1st set so they had to play out the full set rather than a tiebreak. Meza took a 5-2 lead in the 3rd set. Koontz's dad who was in the crowd said a few comments at this point that made Koontz smile and relax and he started to play well suddenly at 2-5. He came back with the team match already lost and nothing to gain individually as far as rankings, but he dug in and won the match winning the last 5 games to end it on a high note for Virginia Tech.

    4. Dom Maden def Lucas Oliveira 6-3 6-2
    Senior day for Oliveira and his dad came all the way from Brazil to watch. The first few games of this match were real grinding battles. Each point being at least 10 strokes, several of them from way behind the baseline and heavy topspin from both players. A clay court type of match. It was very even at 3-3. But eventually Dom Maden bullied Oliveira around. Maden has more weaponry and has the ability to flatten out his forehand and attack unlike Oliviera. This was a long match time wise for a 6-3 6-2 match.

    5. Joao Monteiro def Zac Rigsby 6-1 6-4
    Monteiro has a big forehand that he can hit to the corners. I didn't watch a lot of this match but I know that Rigsby led 4-3 in the 2nd set and for a while looked like he was going to push it to 3 but Monteiro put him away in the end.

    6. Austin Ansari def Tripimir Kujundzic 6-4 6-2
    Ansari rebounded from the Uriguen beating by routinely winning. He led 5-1 in the first set and had his 2nd set swoon early allowing Kujundzic to make it 5-4 but Ansari closed it out and was all business in the 2nd set and not letting his opponent get into the match at all.

    Georgia Tech tomorrow. Only interesting thing is Maden vs Spir. Maden beat Spir 6-4 6-1 in 2011 when Spir was hitting every volley into the net.

    I thought Harrington was going to get into the rankings this week. 3 ranked wins (Botha,Cochrane,Bjerrehus). Maybe now that botha will shoot up for beating Scholtz.

    Fairly routine today. Maden has a good matchup vs Spir. Spir was hitting every one of his forehands as a slice and hitting some exquisite volleys at times. But Maden kept him off guard with some great dipping passing shots which is the strength of Maden's game. It was a good tactical battle which Maden was able to control pretty well.

    Yannick and Dom Maden got a good win over the #8 doubles team in the nation 8-5.

    Rigsby was down 4-5 but ended up winning 7-5 6-1 because Segura injured his brain and could not longer think tactically nor even hit more than a few shots in a row in.

    Vs Wake Forest today. Senior day for Yannick Maden, Gerardo Meza (both had 3 years eligibility like Van Engelen), Ayrton Wibowo the transfer who previously played at Oregon and Auburn-Montgomery and Zac Rigsby the SC native and only 4 year player. That's a large important chunk of the team.

    I expect this one to be razor thin close. Looks like its gonna be very windy today that may be a factor for some players.

    Doubles I think should go to Clemson, Maden brothers back on a roll after two wins over top 15 tandems.

    1: Yannick Maden vs David Hopkins - never count out the 18 year senior from Wake but this is a horror matchup for him. Maden will keep Hopkins uncomfortable and moving all match as Hopkins isn't the worlds greatest mover.

    2: Hunter Harrington vs Danny Kreyman - Interesting matchup, I think Kreyman will struggle against the consistent pace of Harrington, Kreyman does better vs less powerful players.

    3: Gerardo Meza vs Amogh Prabhakar - Favors Wake but Meza will baseline grind with Prabhakar. Prabhakar more of a streamline flat hitter than Meza, it will be a tough one.

    4: Dom Maden vs Adam Lee - Round 3. If you remember my posts from last year describing the bad blood then you know this will be good. I feel like after a year they will come out and play nice and won't have any trouble. This will be a major baseline grinding match. Many long rallies ahead.

    5: Zac Rigsby vs Jonathan Ho - Haven't sent Ho play yet. Give the edge to Rigsby on senior day.

    6: Austin Ansari vs Sam Bloom - Bloom has mixed results. I would expect Ansari to win

    yesterday was a very tough match. 5 of the 6 singles went to 3 sets. Wake rallied from a set down to win on 3 courts. Probably the most surprising loss was Ansari to Delcore as Delcore was playing in only his 2nd dual match of the season. Jonathan Ho was clutch in the end vs Rigsby, he served big and went for his shots. Dom Maden led Kreyman in the 3rd set 2-0 but wasn't able to close out the set. Kreyman is a calm player rarely if ever showing emotion and he steadily came back and won the decisive tiebreak 7-3.

    Hopkins played very well vs Yannick Maden. He is more quick than I remember as he was chasing down drop shots and covering the court without much trouble. The 3rd set was played after the match had already been decided and Maden wore out Hopkins in the end.

    There were 3 significant delays in the Harrington/Prabhakar match all because of Tony Bresky arguing.There was some disagreement about the score in the first set which for some reason the ref didn't have under control. Bresky directly challenged Harrington about the score disagreement. In the 2nd set, Harrington was starting his 2nd serve motion and a ball from another court rolled onto the court so a let was called. Harrington got another first serve despite being about to hit a 2nd serve because of the let, the correct call for a let. Bresky argued that Harrington only tossed the ball to simulate a service motion in order to get another first serve. Bresky delayed the match several minutes for this very small issue. This cause Clemson fans to get on him and Sam Bloom getting into it with some Clemson fans. In the 3rd set Harrington hit a drop volley that bounced very close to the net, Prabhakar got there and hit a winner but hit the net and the ref called point for Harrington. Both Bresky and Prabhakar freaked out. Prabhakar even started to climb the ref chair and grabbed the handles and shook the chair. Another long delay. After Harrington won, Bresky at first refused to shake Harrington's hand but thought twice abut it and did, after admittedly a bit of a bait from Harrington but still Bresky has to be professional which he wasn't all match.

    Adam Broski Lee wasn't too bad yesterday. Always looking for a fight though. He's begging his opponent to say something to him or a fan to heckle him.

    Sounds like sour grapes to me, clemson is know to have some serious home cooking when it comes to the officials. Probably a match you should have won considering it was senior day, you won the doubs and 5 first sets.
    BTW, any word on that protest on the Florida State match, did that ever get over turned. Oddly I see Wibowo went from #4 to just out of the lineup but he keeps playing doubles. You'd think if he was truly 4 he would get moved to 5 then 6 before getting pulled.

    Also no sour grapes I would have reported the situation the exact had we won. Hopkins and Kreyman are classy players.

    How is it nonsense? His record against nationally ranked teams is 1-7. Seems like a fair protest to me. If he truly was 4 and not 7 and holding a spot till Maden came back then why didn't he move to 5 or 6 instead of out of the lineup?

    You can't protest a coach not including a player in the lineup. Playing someone too high or too low, sure.

    Could Miami protest Boland not subjecting one of their players to a match against Mitchell Frank yesterday?

    Ouch - from the outside looking in on this I feel we have a debate winner - got a rebuttal Clemson? Sketchy stuff going on down there with your boys?

    Just being a thorn - I couldn't care less about what Clemson tries to do with their lineup

    I think you missed his point

    He was playing too high, as evidenced by the fact that they then dropped him out of lineup entirely

    Removing someone from lineup itself not the issue, but it signifies sketchiness in this case if the facts presented (1-7 against solid teams then being dropped way down and out of lineup) are correct - I don't know and didn't bother to check

    "What is your response to this protest, coach?"

    "He was injured."

    Protest denied.

    BTW Blake Davis is 3-7 at 4 vs ranked teams while Michale Rinaldi is 9-4 vs ranked teams. Anderson Reed 1-4 at #3. And Reed was actually moved up to that spot unlike Wibowo who stayed at 4. Coaches are under no obligation to move a player down because of results. Hopkins has been playing 1 for Wake Forest all season despite the losses, Junior Ore of Texas A&M has lost almost all his matches at 1 but stayed there for a long time while people below him won.

    Robbie Mudge 1-8 at #1 this season vs ranked teams yet he was moved UP to #1 this weekend from #2.

    exactly, what is so hard to follow about this situation, jesus

    "ummm, coach, then why is he still playing doubles even after being removed from the singles lineup because he's not a top 6 player when you used to stack him at 4???"

    protest successful.

    don't play dumb. you of all people know who we are talking about. seriously.

    this guy: http://www.clemsontigers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPID=103709&ATCLID=205529089&DB_OEM_ID=28500

    the one who used to suck at singles but play 4 regardless and get owned - http://www.clemsontigers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPID=103709&DB_OEM_ID=28500&ATCLID=206483076

    and who now only plays doubles because it was getting too obvious - http://www.clemsontigers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPID=103709&DB_OEM_ID=28500&ATCLID=207354262

    okay, i'm done posting on this thread, just spent way more time thinking about clemson tennis than that program deserves, but let's at least know who we're talking about if we're going to participate in this discussion

    in the grand scheme of college tennis, this is a big "who cares?"

    but he clearly shouldn't have been playing 4 for a while - and the coach clearly agrees with that now, limiting him to only a doubles starter

    When the season started it was 4. D Maden, 5. Wibowo. See anything crazy thus far? You shouldn't because Wibowo played 3 last season. Dom Maden got hurt just before the UGA match. Wibowo was moved up to 4 and Ansari to 6. As February rolled on Ansari played better than expected.
    Dom Maden was 50/50 about coming back. And when he did he was inserted into his normal place at 4 while it was determined that Ansari was winning enough that he deserved to stay in the line-up while Wibowo was losing so he was dropped out rather than Ansari. The official line-up was again Maden at 4 and Wibowo at 5. At FSU and Miami Maden was not ready for singles so he was dropped and everyone else moved up, meaning Wibowo to 4. In matches since then Dom has been ready and Wibowo has been dropped from the line-up rather than Ansari based off record.
