    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...

    S H-O
    Berk
    Glass
    Gold
    Homs
    Sit / Naum

    dubs:

    Holiner/Gold
    Berk/Homs

    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.

    I went by the facility yesterday. Something about it made me feel sad I thik it is because of the lack of real success recently and how some people know think Texas should be TCU or something.

    You should feel sad knowing that the facility is going to be torn down to make way for the med school, that sucks !

    I will be in town for the football game this Saturday(aka Mack's swan song). I will be meeting with someone close to the men's tennis program. We will discuss it, no holds barred. I will let you guys know what comes out in that meeting here Sunday.

    I found out that the team is bonding better this year then last. Goldhoff and Berkowitz are a big lift to the team


    although I was floored to see Berkowicz lose to easy to the UGA player.

    all we can do as Longhorn fans is hope that Center doesn't screw this team up. I like the way it's looking right now.

    I can't believe how well Glasspool is playing. He just took Efferding to the chopping block.

    Great as in great at making his players under-achieve. I fear what he will do with this team.

    Glasspool is playing good. I'm proud of him. The team has a lot of talent. The deficiency is sadly on the bench.

    UVA, UCLA and USC are hogging all the talent. That's where your and every othe college tennis teams bench is. You should know that. That's the way it is. Better do it with your best 6. Bench won't win you anything.

    By bench I meant Center and the coaching staff. I'm not sure why we hired a former UNC nobody to be the volunteer assistant. Oh well.

    I'll support this team if they do well.

    Good effort from Jair Assuncao of UIW against Goldhoff to take a set.

    Baylor appears loaded, with their #3 (#4?) player taking the Texas regional today. Texas looks good, and frankly I'm surprised Glasspool fell to Vinsant. Glasspool has looked very good in the early going. Winning the doubles title with Soren is a nice consolation.

    Maybe. Their #1 guy lost to a freshman in Birmingham this weekend. Says something depending on how you look at it.

    Have to give the clay advantage to the Euro trained Baylor upperclassman versus the American freshman. Impressive result for the freshie nonetheless.

    I looked at it, I don't see any Baylor players there. What's so hard about posting names here? Why does everyone talk like there's some kinda code.

    Pradella lost to Jarryd Woog Memphis freshman 7-6 in the 3rd. That's for everyone who was confused by andfor's useless post.


    And this thread isn't about Baylor.

    Listen here king Louis. I come to this forum for college tennis first before anywhere else. It annoys me to no end when you and others on here use code language instead of players names. I have a major issue with it.

    Alex is a great guy, extremely passionate about tennis, and was a great team guy at UNC. Yeah, he wasn't a college standout and didn't play in their line-up. But, he still plays at a good level and loves college tennis. I also forgot that you being a great coach requires you to have previously been an amazing player. SMDH

    No, you are "wrong" because you can't detect obvious sarcasm.

    Saw where Berkowicz won the Longhorn A draw. Beat Tyler JC's Mate Cutera in the finals (6-7[4], 6-3, 6-1) .

    Cutera beat Goldhoff 7-6, 7-6 in the semis.
