    The Canes ladies had a pretty successful Duke Invitational! Laurente finished 4-0 in singles to win her group, Wagner went 3-1 to finish in third place, Albuquerque won three in a row after losing her first, and Riobueno ended up with a 1-3 record. Albuquerque finished as runner-ups in their doubles group and Laurente/Wagner had a 1-2 record.

    The Canes men's tennis team is getting their fall season started this week. First off is the Bedford Cup at the Florida State University from Sept. 26, Thursday through Sunday. Nine schools are participating in this event; Miami, Bethune-Cookman, Central Florida, Florida A&M, Florida Atlantic, Florida Gulf Coast, Florida State, North Florida and Stetson. From Miami, Henrique Tsukamoto, Jack Murphy, and freshman Bernard Tefel will play in the singles draw, and Tsukamoto/Murphy are entered in the doubles draw. Tsukamoto is seeded ninth in the singles draw.

    At the Bedford Cup, Tsukamoto, Murphy and Tefel all won their opening matches but they also all lost in the second round to end their singles play. Tsukamoto/Murphy also lost in the first round of doubles to make it an early return home. Tefel did well to win his first singles match as a player so that was nice to see. Consolation matches tomorrow.

    The beauty of the college scoring system strikes again. The bracket had Soto as the winner yesterday, but apprently he lost. And Gonzalez and Soto both did not play their consolation matches. Gonzalez/Aly and Soto/Albanese also lost their doubles first round matches so that's it for the Canes in the ITA All-American.

    Unless the scoring is wrong in some way again. Very possible.

    I'm not sure about that but it does seem to happen way too often for everybody. The USTA or NCAA must be in charge. LOL

    Zero Canes make it to the ITA All-American main draw. Singles or doubles. Men or Women. On to the next!

    just a curious question Jax. I know you are proud of Russell but is he really associated with Miami these days.

    Once a Cane, always a Cane. Not sure what the point to your question is.

    Hurricanes lack of good results continue. Tefel goes down 6-3, 6-0 and Murphy goes down 6-1, 6-0. Sure am seeing a lot of bagels served to Canes lately. Tefel gets his second win in consolation but Murphy goes down again. The other six Canes and three doubles teams start play tomorrow in the main draw. No more bagels at least please.

    Good win for Flores. Maybe he re-discovered his passion for tennis.

    I was a bit worried that he might not even come back after the way the last season ended. We need him this year so good to see him get a win.

    Four Canes made it to the round of 16, but all four lost in the next round. Would have been nice to see Gonzalez at least keep his #7 seed but no go. Still not a bad week.

    The team season for the 2013-14 season has been released. The men's team start things off on January 11th against Liberty at home. During the season, they will face ten teams that were ranked higher last year, including #1 and national champion Virginia and #7 Duke. With three seniors leading the way, hopefully things will be improved over last year, but they may be on the outside looking in for the third consecutive season when the NCAA tournament teams are announced at the end of April. That has never happened in the history of the Canes men's tennis team. Hopefully the team can prove me wrong and they will be able to score some upsets and sneak into the tournament for the 46th time.

    All seven singles players and all three doubles teams make it out of the first round. Wagner has also won her round of 32 match to advance! Go Lady Canes!

    Four Lady Canes made it to the round of 16 and Wagner made it to the quarterfinals where she lost to top seed Kowase of Georgia. Not a bad showing by the Canes.

    The men's team will be participating in a tournament at Florida Gulf Coast University this weekend. They will be competing against players from FGCU, Barry, FAU, UCF, Arkansas and Boston College. The format will be a compass draw so every play will get to play several matches win or lose. This is basically a tournament to get in match play as the players get ready for the team season coming up in January. The tournament runs from Friday, October 25, to Sunday, October 27. Good luck to the guys!

    Canes had a pretty good showing in the Florida Gulf Coast Invite this pat weekend. Tsukamoto and Albanese met in the Green Singles bracket final and Albanese won in three sets. Albanese and Murphy also made it to the doubles final beofre losing a close one. Tefel also finished third in his group. Flores had a pretty rough week. I'm concerned about him. Not sure if he just didn't come in from the summer with much preparation, or if the will just isn't there. If the Canes are to have any chance at all to get to the NCAA tournament, we're going to need him but it doesn't look too promising right now.

    It should not go unnoticed that this Friday, 11/22 is Gardnar Mulloy's 100th birthday.

    He is still in pretty good shape which is amazing and lives in the Miami area.

    I believe he founded the tennis program at UM and he was a top player in his day.

    Happy Birthday, Mr. Mulloy. :)

    It should be noted that Miami Hurricanes All-American Daniel Vallverdu has been a coach on Andy Murray's team. They first met over 10 years ago at the Sanchez-Canal Tennis Academy in Barcelona. Vallverdu has been the hitting coach for Murray since 2010. He was also the coach for Britain's men's tennis team at the London Olympics.

    The Miami Hurricanes signed three recruits over the weekend! First was Blue-Chip recruit Christian Langmo. He is currently ranked No. 29 in this year's senior class. Next was Alexander Fahnehjelm from Sweden. The only thing I've been able to dig up on his was that he was ranked No. 6 in Sweden. Third was Piotr Lomacki from Sweden and a current rank of #1292 on the ITF rankings.

    I have not paid close attention to this thread so excuse me if it has been mentioned.

    Do Murray and other pros practice with the Miami team? I seem to remember reading Los Angeles pros would at UCLA and USC.
