    I'm looking forward to the draw.

    pretty sure it's never until the day before those actually start - probably a good idea, so they don't distract from the team portion - so a few days still

    anyone know if Patrick Kawka of BYU will be allowed to play in the individual event since he was not allowed to play on the team in the NCAA tournament?

    Alcorta got in when Singh hi-tailed it out of Athens. Campbell Johnson of Cal can send a thank you card to Kawka.

    Wagland/Jenkins (3) rematch
    Frank/Libietis (1)
    Kobelt (7)/Saba then possibly Novikov R2
    Bogaerts (5)/Giron
    King (9-16)/Pasha
    Lipman/Styslinger

    How crazy would it be to see Jenkins vs Domijan in the final?

    I'm sure UVA fans wouldn't mind, although they're probably a bit more concerned with what takes place today.

    Yeah bad draw for both, but can't expect frank to win after a war with UCLA

    Cunha with a good draw so he should have yet another good singles tourney if the beaches of Brazil aren't calling his name - two other top guys on his half of the draw (rola and domi) will have had long weeks and go through each other

    Kobelt will see Duke across the net in singles and dubs, and if Saba plays the way he was playing Giron before that match got cut off, watch out Kobe

    Anyone knows if the winner gets an automatic berth for the USO ?
    What I understand is : they usually gives a wild card to the main draw if the player who wins is an American ....so if this is the case why are foreign students/athletes still fighting it out ?

    The foreign players would still like the honor of being an all-American by making the round of 16. Also the title is always nice. But the lack of the cool us open bonus is a bit of a downer.

    They need to come up with another carrot for the foreigners to chase after. I know it's American college sports and all but still...

    Yeah let's just say Blaz Rola wins it. He has done work in European challengers already. It would be cool to see him try his hand in the US Open but he would not get to. He would deserve it more than Devin Britton did when he won.

    it always varies and I completely understand each outcome. Some players who make it deep in the team portion are spent physically, mentally and emotionally and sort of phone it in during the individual tournament.

    Some are good for a round or two, but can't keep up the momentum.

    Others seem to be able to make the transition and keep their intensity and have a good showing individually.

    Yeah some may take advantage of being recently match tested and others who's teams have been done a while could be rusty.

    Kobelt needs to watch out for Saba. Saba plays well vs players like Kobelt, usually can grind them down and get them moving around the court. The winner of that match likely gets Novikov, so a loaded section.

    It will be interesting to see how Jenkins does vs Wagland just a few days after Wagland beat Jenkins in the team semifinal.

    Giron played great in the team event, knocking off Kobelt and Domijan. Let's see what he can do vs the #5 seed Bogaerts.

    Pasha vs King will be good.

    Does everyone get to play in a 30 mph wind again? The drama has been great in the semis and final, but the technical quality of the tennis has really suffered.

    Gomez down a break in the 3rd to Botha
    Evan King rolled over Pasha 2 & 2 - not too surprised with that result

    Stephane Piro gets double-bageled by Kyle McMorrow. That is pretty poor

    where can you see results that have already happened? They disappear from the live scoreboard instantly.

    and Gomez goes down. Disappointing end to the week for him including his beat down loss to Rola. He's probably ready to get to some South American futures.

    Good win for Lutjen to open, will be curious to see Schultz play, he seemed very uninspired a few weeks back, hopefully he has healed up some and is ready to play.
    Also will the women please hurry up, many guys finished and no women finished yet!!

    yeah so much for my upset pick. Terrible waste of money and time for UF to get him up there for the tournament. Still has doubles though.

    Not sure of the exact court layout, but I'd have to expect that courts 7&8 are adjacent. Pretty ironic and slightly cruel for Puget that Frank is currently on 7 while Puget plays on 8.

    Wow. Libietis is in trouble against Frank as well. Much more interesting than last year for sure. Wome's #1 Embree is out as well.

    Marcos Giron just reeled in another huge upset over the #5 seed. That's three top ten players that he's taken out in three days, amazing.

    Yeah and guy had multiple game points on his own serve to get it to 5-0, but at the end of the day just another classic Cunha win where he gets better as match goes along, didn't even need the third set

    I thought Saba was actually going to beat Kobelt. But seems that Kobelt brought his A game.

    True, based on rankings, but "upset" is pretty relative at NCAA individual tournament. Think about it, these are, generally, the best 64 players of thousands of players. I'm thinking the gaps between players who make the tournament isn't that huge, and the numbers next to their names mean little, except in those years where there's a truly dominant player(s). And, this year, there's absolutely no one among the top seeds who you would be surprised if they didn't win the tournament or even make a deep run.

    Moreover, as discussed in other threads, there's the whole deal with players who made it deep in the team tournament and if they can (or even want to) keep the momentum going in the individual tournament. Some can, some can't. After all those years of UVA heartbreak, after an incredibly dramatic championship yesterday, and probably after a little bit of partying last night (even if it just meant staying up late), and all of the physical/mental exhaustion, I can see a player like Domijan phoning it in during the individual tourney. Not explicitly tanking a match, but not really fully engaged either.

    With Domijan, it may have been the conditions. He struggled the previous two days with the wind's effect on his serve. Conditioning may have also been a factor in his third match in three days, especially against Mihov, whose team didn't even make the second round.

    From what I've heard, the UVA guys that were participating in the singles and doubles were not out partying. Frank told a reporter that he was done celebrating an hour after the match because he had a match the next day.

    The rest of the team, however...

    I think Jenkins could make a good living on the tour playing doubles. The guy can take over a doubles match. He has to be the fastest guy in college tennis.

    Jenkins is quick, check out the get by him at the 35 second mark of thisclip against Novikov. Hits a shot running back towards the fence and ends up winning the point

    Shame we can't watch the matches right now.


    In doubles in the ACC tournament against the Maden brothers, Jenkins had a ridiculous point. He was at the service line and both Madens were aiming volleys at him and jenkins returned about 3 in a row, then he returned 3 overheads in a row from the service line somehow and eventually hit the deck and even returned 1 shot from his back until eventually Dom Maden put it away. But it prompted a standing ovation from all fans.
