    Yes, and no scores appeared at all for eons, then a bunch appeared. All three UVa players were on court at the same time, and Jenkins and Domijan finished before they got the scoreboard to work at all. I hope that is a good sign that they won in straights.

    Rossi served for the match at 6-3 5-4 and then Kobelt reeled off 8 straight games. He is up 5-1 in 3rd now.

    Pieters could not close out Borsos and now Borsos is back on serve in the 3rd.

    All 3 from Virginia (Domijan, Styslinger, Jenkins) and Georgia (Singh, Pasha, Pieters) through to the 2nd round. USC has 2 through (Sarmiento, Gomez) with both Quiroz and Hanfmann up a set on their opponents. Ohio State's 2 players both win (Diaz, Kobelt).

    Seeds to bow out: Rossi (10), Tearney (12), vanOverbeek (15), Borsos (16).
    Evan King (3) & Andreas Mies (9) both down a set in their matches.

    More upsets - Roberto Quiroz takes out #3 Evan King 6-2 6-4, Juan Spir knocks off Andre Dome 7-6 6-3, and the #2 seed Jarmere Jenkins falls to his fellow Hoo Mac Styslinger in the 2nd round 6-1 6-4. Styslinger must be the real deal.

    Good golly, wondered why there was no story on UFs website. Gators go a combined 1-4 for the tournament. Alford got a qualifying 1st round win, thats it. Jeez. Not good.

    I wouldn't worry too much. It was a rough tournament but if I were a Gators fan, I'd be pretty excited about the new coach (and assistant coach :wink: ) and what they are going to do there in Florida.

    Men's consolation singles draw.

    These matches can make a big difference in the ITA rankings in the spring, because it is a head to head system and does not devalue consolation rounds.

    He is at 6-4, 4-6 right now. I would not count that as a win just yet. K.U. Singh has the momentum at the moment.

    K.U. Singh wins 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 over John Morrissey of Stanford. Still, it appears that Morrissey might contend for #1 at Stanford this year.

    Out of this group, is there one guy that you can say "yes, definitely this guy can make top 100 in the ATP tour" ?

    He's from Alabama. So, yes, he's a foreign player.

    That's a bold prediction to make, but I think Domijan has the most upside of any of them.

    I think Jomby has the game to make a career of tennis, not sure if he has the head.

    I think KU Singh has a pro type of game. He has the ability to make his own shots and is a great mover.

    Fianl 8 is set with USC putting in 2 (Sarmiento, Gomez), Virginia with 2 (Styslinger, Domijan), UGA 1 (Singh), Ohio State 1 (Kobelt), Tulsa 1 (DeKlerk), and Princeton 1 (Pecotic). USC almost had 3 but Quiroz let a 6-2 lead slip away in the 3rd set tiebreak.

    DeKlerk was up 15-40 or 0-40 on several of KU's service games in that 3rd set but couldn't get the break. Per twitter update match ends when DeKlerk is overruled at 5 all in the tiebreak which was his 4th overrule resulting in loss of a game. Singh gets the win 6-2 2-6 7-6 (5).

    I was there at the match and didn't really pull for any of the two, but during the tiebreak, there were about three points leading up to that 6-5, that KU was calling on-the-line balls out... He was very calm and collected though despite the pressure from TU fan (half the TU men soccer team was there cheering for De Klerk). Too bad a good match ended that way...

    Gomez was actually playing well today when I watched him, I thought Domijian will have to work much harder to get this match, but he was just his usual solid self who takes care of the serve and just cracked big forehand any time he has a look.

    Stlylinger did not look nearly as good today as he did the last few match, still, je's gonna be a great number 4 this year. Korbelt was the one that surprised me the most, hitting his serve with power and great placement as he wants (down the tee, out wide). It's kinda cool to see two guys both hitting one handed BH at this level of college tourney, doesn't happen much these days. Stylinger's BH is actually better, seems like he could absorb power and redirect very well with the one hander.

    Sarmiento was fighting for every single points against Pecotic who broke him early in the 2nd set and had several more break chances at 6-5. Pecotic is a very agressive player who keeps trying to bullying and intimidating his opponents whether it was Alcorta (OU), Quiroz or Sarmiento. He does have a big lefty serve and is somewhat of a powerful grinder, but does not have any special weapon.

    KU looks very sharp against Morrisey, more so than he did today. I have only heard about him prior to seeing him play Morrisey, so I was surprised how big he can go on his first serve, especially for his frame. During that match, his forehand was huge, hitting inside out crosscourt and down the line at will, with great pace. Today even though playing indoor with no condition, he was just spinning ball in from both side and was only ocasionally go big on the ground. Today, he looks very much like Spencer today. De klerk was very improved this year overall, but he did benefit from the easier draw, beating an injured Hoss-Sorensen.

    Aside from those guys, I got to watch Cunha played a pre-qual guy Chris Diaz, and Cunha did not look as good as I think he would. During the match, he was extremely tentative with his FH at times, just spinning ball in.

    Domijan vs Kobelt for the Championship.

    Both won close 3 setters today. Domijan with the 6-4 6-7 7-6 win. Domijan served for the match up 5-4 and 6-5 in the 2nd before losing that set in a tiebreak. Kobelt with the 7-5 1-6 6-4 win. Kobelt trailed 3-1 in the 3rd before breaking back and then broke KU for the win. On Kobelt's 4 all service game he came back from 15-40 down to hold then KU was serving 4-5 40-0 and Kobelt won 5 straight points for the win.

    Well at least I picked the champion. Alex Domijan with the 7-5 6-1 win over Peter Kobelt. Kobelt led 3-1 in the 1st set then Domijan must have turned it on.

    Auburn's doubles team of Dan Cochrane/Andreas Mies knocked off Virginia's team of Jarmere Jenkins/Mac Styslinger 7-6 6-2 to take the doubles crown.

    Lutjen won the consolation. Connor Smith made a run to the final. He was the beneficiary of Hanfmann pulling out of consolations due to injury.
