    Miami win both in a double-header today to pad their record for the season. They defeated Valparaiso in the morning and Quinnipiac later in the day. Both with 6-1 records.
    They go full throttle into the ACC and it will be brutal. Of the next 11 duals, I see them maybe beating Boston College. Any other win will be a huge upset. They are 6-6 now. That will take them to 7-16. Add on another first round loss in the ACC tournament and that should leave them with a 7-17 record for the year.

    Go. Canes.

    Miami had no chance whatsoever today, getting a full beatdown by No. 12 UNC. Lost two doubles and trailed in the third. No. 2 Langmo might win a second set but the Heels already have won 5 singles and the first 10 sets, including two bagels and three breadsticks. They were still playing the remaining two singles matches for whatever reason. Next scheduled beatdown is No. 6 Duke on Sunday.

    Last year didn't Miami have a really random upset win over UNC? Or was it someone else? It came out of nowhere.

    Ah yeah I was thinking of the Wake win.

    Kirijax you may call me crazy but I think the Canes might beat Clemson next week.

    Had the wrong scores on 5 and 6 for a long time. It showed that Drake was rolling when it was actually in fact Johnson who was.

    Looks like the wheels have come completely off of the men's tennis team. They went up to No. 23 Louisville today.

    Here were the scores.

    Doubles 1: 3-6 (stopped when doubles point was decided)
    Doubles 2: 1-8
    Doubles 3: 2-8

    Singles 1: 1-6, 3-6
    Singles 2: 1-6, 2-6
    Singles 3: 0-6, 5-7
    Singles 4: 2-6, 0-6
    Singles 5: 3-6, 4-6
    Singles 6: 3-6, 3-6

    Horrible. Words cannot describe how bad this team is now. There need to be some changes after this season. If there are not, the school will prove that they care nothing about results.

    Miami needs a new coach pronto!!

    How about Vallverdu?? Surely his experience with Murray has brought him connections.

    Taking a run at Vallverdu at this time would be a wasted effort. He's coaching Berdych now. Hmmm, let's see. Coach Miami and rebuild a once very good program or continue working with a top 10 player less than 1 year into the relationship and possibly coach him to a Grand Slam title?

    The sensible approach would be to consult Vallverdu and ask him to help them with the search.

    The Canes did better than I thought they would against Wake Forest.

    Tsukamoto won a set.

    Miami Canes lose their 4th consecutive 0-7 blowout loss. They've won one set in each dual.

    They have lost 56 of the last 60 sets they have played.

    Words cannot describe this.

    The University of Miami hired a new president. He is meeting with the Canes coaches next week. This could be interesting.

    "North Carolina's 9th best win is over East Carolina or Miami both of which are ranked below 115 and should be below 125."

    HOW???!!! BELOW 125??! Maybe they should join the A-Sun and play teams in Florida at their level.

    The A-Sun may be a bit too tough with the Ospreys ruling the conference.

    they will get Dane Dunlap out of Canada, he is maybe like a 4*-recruit with tendencies to beeing a 5* (but he is not the 5star-level, slight down of this)

    will lose Gonzalez and Tsukamoto. Team is very young, their #1 Lomacki and #2Langmo will get better, need a little more depth and then maybe can compete for some wins next season in ACC.

    The Canes men go down to their 5th straight 0-7 loss. They have not won a single dual point since they beat Boston College on March 29. They have dropped 70 of 76 sets since then. The level of ineptitude is indescribable.

    They actually took two sets today. Tefel came this close to actually winning his match. This is considered a small victory for the '15 Canes.

    It's just painful to watch the 15 'Canes at this point. Season can't end soon enough for them.

    LOL You mean like how they actually managed to win two out of six first sets?

    True. That's good for them.

    well vs Virginia that's not bad for any ACC team really. Lomacki had a lead on Frank in the 1st set too. It would be stunning if Gonzalez held on here vs Altamirano.

    Yeah, I'll be stunned if they can avoid another 0-7 today.

    After dropping 38 straight matches in all, the Canes finally win a point today.

    Shane must have mailed it in today. Canes' Langmo beats the No. 4 Shane 6-2 in the 3rd for the Canes' meaningless 2nd point of the day.

    And now they change the score back to 5-3 so it isn't over.

    LOL College tennis sucks donkey balls.

    The men's season comes to a merciful ending today. They once again fail to win even a single set in falling to Duke to end their season with a 7-17 record. This was the Canes' 6th losing season since 1977 and worst season ever. They had a couple of 8-13 seasons in '96 and '12 but this season managed to top that. They finish the season unranked for the first time since '96. Also, they have missed the NCAA tournament now for the past four seasons. This could continue for a while unless something drastic happens.

    Had some hope for the women's team, but they coughed up a huge hairball today against the No. 10 seed Florida State in the ACC quarterfinals. Just pathetic. Their ranking could take a hit and there is the possibility they won't even host a NCAA regional now.

    If this season was a fish, I'd throw it back.

    Happy Birthday to former Hurricane and ATP pro Michael Russell! He turns 37 today. He's announced his retirement at the end of the year so good luck to him the rest of the way!

    Well, the Miami women hung on to the #15 spot. They will host a regional and face #2 UNC in the round of 16 if they advance to Waco.

    Kind of surprised but I guess they will at least make the Sweet Sixteen. I don't see they beating UNC though.

    Nothing. The official Canes site just put up his profile on April 22. Here are some things the profile said.

    That's about it. Nothing was said about missing the NCAA tournament for the last four years, for falling completely out of the rankings or being swept 0-7 five matches in a row this year.

    Canes women almost let Ole Miss upset them but they squeaked by with a 4-3 win. 10th Straight Sweet Sixteen. I don't give them much chance to advance any further though. They seem to have regressed as the season goes on.
