    I've never got any sound to work on there. When I pull it up I can only see the 1st set score on courts 1-3. They have them where the doubles score should be instead of the middle column.

    You'd think they would figure it out by now. I was watching the scores yesterday, wondering what the heck was going on. Typical incompetent college tennis scoring.

    Not hard to figure out, St John's #1 must be injured he retired in singles first match and only played doubles 2nd match. They only have 6 players on roster

    What's up with that ? Can't they recruit some players off of the intramural team ?

    Wow what an upset in the making. Gator faithful might need a padded room and no sharp objects

    Auburn gets doubles vs Mississippi State. Big point as this promises to be a close match.

    VOB rallies to win 6-4 in the 3rd and Alford wins 6-4 in the 3rd as well. Gators escape with a 4-2 win.

    Chaudry vs Ollert at 3 is going to be a real marathon runners match. Two super fit and fast players.

    This seems to happen a lot and they never do recruit on campus, I guess all the effort to get people cleared isnt worth it.

    Mississippi State pulls it out 4-3 as Romain Bogaerts guts out a 7-5 7-6 (6) win at #1 singles. Auburn's Mies served for the 2nd set up 5-4 and served for it in the tiebreak up 6-5.

    It's impressive how well Mississippi State has reloaded after losing most of their team from last year.

    This shows how pertinent doubles is for UF this spring. Lack of a dominant top player could be the heel of the Gators in many matches.

    With Stanford missing from the tournament, it won't be that much fun. Is there anyway they can get a wildcard into the event ?

    There are 16 spots available in the final 16. That's why they use terms like "round of 16" and "final 16 teams." Fifteen regionals are held to decide spots, and the University of Washington qualifies automatically as the host team. That makes 16 teams for 16 spots. How do you propose getting Stanford in at this point?

    I do kinda miss the days of laughing as Clayton lost head-scratching after head-scratching match.

    But this current Stanford team doesn't have much that's interesting about it.

    Question. What's the highest rank a #2 can end the year at. Jomby is off to an incredible start against some tough teams.

    My early prediction is that he is going to surprise a lot of people by years end

    That was a very impressive weekend for him winning both matches 6-0 6-1. Probably would be tougher to get much higher than he is now which is #15 since he won't face many opponents at #2 singles that have a better ranking. Only #2s in the SEC that are in the top 20 are Jonas Lutjen #5, Nathan Pasha #19, and Gonzales Austin #20. His win over Sebastian Fanselow back in September is what got his ranking as high as it is so a win over Lutjen would definitely help.

    Mitchell Frank finished last year ranked #2 and he played at #3 singles for Virginia all year though he did tear it up in the fall beating 5 or 6 top 10 players and started the year ranked #1.

    Bagahahahah. They host the qualifier and lose. No, they miss out. Sorry, go get better. You aren't top 16 worthy so far this spring.

    Yes, if they can talk Washington into letting Standford host the tournament and then they get the WC. Good luck. Let us know how that goes.

    Thank God Stanford was able to beat Texas Tech, I was concerned for the match. Looking at the schedule it seems to be a pretty soft non conference, maybe Coach Whit knew this was going to be a down season.

    UCLA is your 16th team for the National Indoors as they beat BYU 6-1. Bruins won the doubles point in a tiebreak at #3 then won 5 of 6 singles matches in straight sets. The one loss came by Dennis Novikov.

    Probably got lucky at the Open. Whereas Bradley Klahn is a real deal.

    So there were two "upsets" on the men's side with Tennessee beating Illinois and Texas A&M beating Stanford and on the women's side Vanderbilt beat out Ole Miss. The rest of the hosts won.

    Here are the 16 headed to Seattle and the bigger matchups they have in the next 2 weeks. There will probably be some movement in the rankings before the brackets come out though not a ton.

    #1 Virginia - off
    #2 USC - Texas, Cal, Stanford
    #3 UCLA - San Diego, Stanford, Cal
    #4 Ohio State - Georgia, Texas A&M
    #5 Duke - Illinois, Tennessee, Michigan, Notre Dame
    #6 Georgia - Ohio State
    #7 Pepperdine - Texas
    #8 Oklahoma - Indiana, Kentucky, Tulsa
    #9 Kentucky - Oklahoma, Illinois, Notre Dame
    #11 Mississippi State - Ole Miss
    #12 Florida - Florida State
    #13 Ole Miss - Mississippi State
    #14 Cal - USC, UCLA
    #19 Tennessee - Illinois, Duke
    #22 Washington - Santa Clara, Boise State
    #26 Texas A&M - TCU, Ohio State

    These are the potential pairings in Seattle. I know the ITA usually doesn't like to pair up conference members in the Round of 16 but I don't think they can avoid an SEC matchup this year since there are 7 SEC schools in the final 16.

    1. Virginia vs. 16. Washington
    8. Oklahoma vs. 9. Kentucky
    4. Ohio State vs. 13. Cal
    5. Duke vs. 12. Florida

    6. Pepperdine vs. 11. Mississippi State
    3. UCLA vs. 14. Tennessee
    7. Georgia vs. 10. Ole Miss
    2. USC vs. 15. Texas A&M

    Washington has indoor webcams and they have a couple of home matches before so I am sure you will be able to tell the quality from there.
