    I think there was a fair bit of doubt all the way through and certainly about who was going to win the deciding rubber - or were you watching a different match? I'm assuming you did actually watch.

    I am well aware how the coaches divide up the courts, but I was making an observation on how Center was avoiding Harrison Adams.

    I found it amusing.

    Aggies should have played Szabo instead of Minavi. Szabo has beaten Nauman before and probably would have taken down Holiner.

    My mistake, I was mixing you up with your namesake thinking it was just another inane comment rather than a cleverly constructed piece of sarcasm (how was my effort?)

    Of course he was avoiding him. Nobody likes being too physically close to a turncoat.

    Maybe Adams read all your posts about how bad Center and the team was and decided it was better to go someplace else...........

    Well guys, it looks like Penick-Allison is doomed, the new Med School and associated parking lots will be built on-site. That means they are going to have to find a new place to play home matches, I wonder if there is any UT land where they can build a new stadium ? Hope we don't have to haul out to Steiner Ranch to watch UT play from now on...

    Meanwhile, Rice is building a new $8 million tennis complex.

    Remember when the Horns used to play on the semifinal round day?

    How consistently did they do that? How many times in any ten year period?

    You're kicking a puppy at this point, no need to rub our faces in it.

    I think I'm the only one upset that Penick Alison is going to be torn down for the new med school, no way will tennis fans haul out to Steiner Ranch to watch UT play...

    yeah I would prefer the courts to stay where they are.



    I'm just saying Clark that its nice to have a team to support in these later rounds and the big moments. Sadly as Longhorn fans we no longer have such a thing. Congrats on your title. Savor it while you can, these things don't last a long time.

    We won't always win, and we won't always make the semifinals. When that day comes, we won't come here and trash our coach, our team, and individual players by name. After all: We are VIRGINIA! VIRGINIA!

    Soren got into the round of 16. Albeit through a soft draw.

    Great job in doubles by Holiner and Camillone.

    I'm stunned they made the final. Very shocking run. I wonder where that was all season.

    Camillione gone now.

    Soren had a good run.

    Chris is helping out with the UT summer camp and he's actually my sons counselor this week, which is pretty cool.

    Just speculation, but he didn't play in College Station for the NCAA Regional....I had heard Center thought he Andrew had an attitude and was difficult player/teammate...which frankly I was shocked by. I bet there was some friction between Andrew and Center.

    does this surprise anyone? I almost expected it. It's ok though Korinek was borderline D1.

    Don't think this is gonna be a great up coming season for them...I'm gonna jump on the "Center has to go" bandwagon.

    They should be improved. Gaining Goldhoff and Berkowitz and not losing much. I am an hour away from Austin now so I will try to go up and see the team play some of the big matches like vs Oklahoma or something during the season.

    Word on the street is they are going to build a new facility over by the baseball stadium, not too far away, but I'm going to miss Penick.

    Just to get in early before the negative comments start up again, my prediction is for a very strong year. Looking forward to saying "told you so"

    Not tennis specific but it is athletic related. Tennis will be involved as well as the other sports.


    And yes Rattler I will probably beat most of the matches. I will probably swing over to see a UTSA match every once in a while. To truly satisfy my tennis fix I will have to head up to Austin for a match a couple times.

    UIW is joining the southland this year. They will compete instantly. CC is still the top dogs and Nicholls State isn't bad, UIW isn't too far behind immediately.

    Don't forget ACU as well they will jump to the top in a hurry. Southland Men and Women will be fun to watch. To bad UIW and ACU are not eligible for Conference Title for a few years

    we'll see, but Center's last couple of squads have had Zero chemistry, none of the players get along or lie each other....in fact it is just the opposite.

    He'll probably run into issues between himself and George, which would be like having issues with Andrew....oh,wait.

    Ok, what would I know? You obviously have better inside knowledge than I do, but I'm confident in saying that not only do they like each other but that the squad will be strong.

    Any good news ? George Goldhoff did well in doubles at the Zoo, that's something I guess.

    Maybe you know more than I do, but I went to a number of home matches this last spring, and when I saw the players together they seemed to get along quite well. Don't know if everyone liked everyone, but the statement that none of the players get along or like each other does not appear to be true based on my observations of their interaction together.

    Well, I have great inside knowledge, and I know for a fact that the chemistry on the team is great and the players most certainly get along with each other. They are gonna have a strong squad this year and I think they will do really well

    without revealing too much: Asger is related.
    He can tell you in what way if he chooses to do so.
    I think I may have actually met him in Denmark some years ago when I played at his tennis club.
    He will have a very good idea about how the chemistry is at Texas.
    I know of another player on the team who also thinks they will have a good season.

    That's pretty clear from his handle he's likely related. I should not have asked him the question I did about his relation to the team. As a matter of fact, he would be better off not answering and being anonymous. The Internet can bring out such hate from the keyboard tough guys. Glad he's here though and hope the best for LH tennis this year.

    On paper one could argue this team could compete with the best Texas teams of the past 15 years.
    Anyone care to speculate on a line-up?
    S H-O
    Berk
    Goldh
    Homs
    Sit
    Naum

    Or what...

    Well no disrespect towards this year's squad, but I'm not sure how they'd match up against the 2008/2009 team with
    Kutrovsky, Corrie, Damico, Zavala, etc. I guess we'll see how they do this year.

    Wouldn't disagree. And i'm not sure that was the best UT team in last 15. Gubser, Helgeson, (the australian guy? drawing a blank..), Venus at #6, etc. that lost to Pepperdine was a solid team top to bottom.
