    There are a lot in futures every week. This week KU Singh is in the 2nd round of the Pune,India future. Former college players Saketh Myneni and Jeevan Neducheziyan are in the tournament as well. KU's rank is up in the 600's now which is very good for a college player and usually indicative of a top player in the NCAA.

    The UVA commits also competed in a future. the one in Florida.

    Also the Champaign challenger saw some Illini compete.

    Ok there are tons and tons in action this summer. A lot in Europe, home for the summer.

    In France. Jomby def world number 379. and Diep def Andersen 6-1 6-0. Two impressive wins for SEC players.

    Lots of college players have been doing quite well in future events.

    anyone know anything about the Podzus brothers from Latvia? Are they looking at college, probably since they have been playing in the USA a lot. Both very solid looking players.

    Pasha was serving up 4-2 in the 3rd and lost 4 of the last 5 games. King handled Spencer 6-4 6-3, and Taboada got whipped 6-2 6-1. A lot of wildcards in the qualies - just as many people with no ranking as with any ranking. Jack Sock's brother, Eric, got a wildcard in qualies and he lost more matches than he won at #6 singles for Nebraska.

    Yeah I know. That has to be the weakest qualie field ive ever seen for an ATP event. The Binghampton challenger qualies took to be just as good.

    Ryan Lipman and Gonzales Austin of Vanderbilt are playing today in the final round of qualies at the Joplin MO Future. I assume Lipman will play 1 next year with Austin at 2.

    UVA recruit Mac Styslinger is into the final round of qualies along with several other collegians - Jackson Withrow & Jordan Szabo (Texas A&M), David Holiner (Texas), Zach White (Mississippi State), & Clifford Marsland (Tulsa)

    There's a lot of buzz about that match - enjoy!
    (gotta admit though, I'm an SJ fan, just like to see college guys do well I suppose) Should be great tennis.

    Recent grads Chase Buchanan (Ohio State) and Drew Courtney (Virginia) won the Rochester Futures doubles title. That was the first pro event for Courtney, and Buchanan has been on a tear since about April.

    A couple of interesting results as well. As both of the lower naked guys on the team win. Szabo edges Withrow in a 3rd set breaker. While Austin def Lipman 7-6(2) 6-0. I wonder how that will effect things for those teams.

    Isade Juneau from Indiana got a WC into qualifying at the Granby challenger and has won 3 rounds to qualify. He plays the Mexican Daniel Garza in round one and even if he loses will jump close to 300 places higher.

    M. Frank beats Bjorn Fratangelo in straights today. Would have liked to have seen Bjorn play a year or two of college as well.

    Lexington Challenger

    Tennessee's Hunter Reese was the lucky winner of the day when his opponent, Takao Suzuki, retired while leading 6-4 4-1.
    Ohio State's Hunter Callahan beat Tennessee's Jarryd Chaplin 3-6 7-5 7-5. Virginia's Jarmere Jenkins whipped Shuichi Sekiguchi 6-0 6-3.
    Future Duke Blue Devil Michael Redlicki beat former LSU #1 Michael Venus 7-6 6-3.
    Kentucky's Ryuji Hirooka got double bageled by Thomas Fabbiano #295. Hirooka didn't even crack the singles lineup for Kentucky last year so this result isn't too surprising.
