    Right now at Washington huskie tennis team website, you can watch Marcos Verdasco play against Alex Slovic at #1 spot and it is very good tennis, Verdaso looks like a very good player himself. What do you think of his game.?:grin:

    www.gohuskies.com then go to men's tennis and click on live tv. if you are not registered you will have to sign up, it is free and takes 2 minutes. and you can see all huskies tennis live and on tape for free from then on. It is pretty good tennis and visibility is pretty good too. I can see that this Marcos is not as good as his brother obviously but he has talent that is in developement.

    Marcos Verdasco just broke to take the lead in the 2nd set. His Forehand is not as good as his brother's, it looks like. But i can see his talent, he is making some spectacular shots at times. He use same racket as Fernando and even same VAMOS chants too.

    No he is righty, he is wearing Green, and he seems to be impatient at times and that is why he is kind of even with this guy named slovic of huskies. Slovic is ranked about #70-80 0r so and would have been ranked higher if he played more in the fall. so Marcos is playing a pretty good college guy.

    And Marcos seem to double fault at the most inopportune moments, he has to cut that out.

    It looks like Marcos is going down today, he has work to do if he is going to follow in footsteps of his brother Fernando.

    I am going to make a thread about this but several division 1 college team have this feature, that you can watch their matches online Live, like Stanford and USC as well. it is pretty nice, to see some of the tactics they use in doubles and singles. I learned a few things.:-D

    That would be great Fedace, I am a big fan of Indiana college tennis but we dont have any kind of feed and to see teams from pac 10 , acc and sec would be very cool.

    I also saw Stanford play today as well against Arizona state and it was pretty good tennis and nice feed, it is outdoor tennis and USC played today as well and i missed that one. And Stanford is playing again tomorrow afternoon if it doesn't rain in Palo alto. you can sign up for that too, it is Free. Matt Bruch, the Chicago boy is playing #1 double and #1 singles for Stanford. Matt Bruch almost beat Donald young at the Orange bowl 2 years ago.

    No i did not watch him play cause i just watch #1 and #2 usually and he played #6 against Zeller from Stanford and got blown out so must not have been playing very well. Zeller has not been exactly burning up the court this season. Anyway, i am watching a better match tonight Washington vs Sandiego state. #1 singel for the aztecs is a very good player, some good tennis.;)

    This guy that plays #1 for Sandiego state, Markus Dickhardt has one of the best one handed backhands i have ever seen. It is so natural, kind of like Tommy Haas backhand.
