    Singles are going now on the indoor courts at Illinois. LiveStats are provided by the Illini.

    Illinois and Florida are the two teams that have had a lot of players quit and transfer since last spring. Ironically, one player (Johnny Hamui) went from Florida to Illinois.

    Texas just beat Arkansas in Fayeteville 6-1. The swept the doubles and took 5 out of 6 singles matches. Also it looks like they have added Jean Andersen, a South African with a world ranking of #683 to the roster, although there has not been any official announcement that I know of.

    Robert Frost has an equal!!

    "Illinois stink or what?" The fluid phrasing, the subtle use of poetry! I await further posts with bated breath.

    OOPS. Didn't go to Standford.

    I think you meant bated breath. Standford fans who eat night crawlers have baited breath.

    I wonder if we can get a betting pool going as to whether Alex Clayton beats Dennis Nevolo 6-0, 6-0. I bet he does not. Perhaps Fedace can put up some money in escrow to cover his boast.

    Thats just how it is, 3 doubles and whoever wins 2 gets the point.

    hey I just found out that I am going to this meet. This will be my first college tennis meet I'll see. So my question is, is there anytime that I could get alex clayton's, or other players autograph? Like I have signed things from pro events. But not sure how they do it in college.
