    Buckeye fans will miss Blaz Rola, his talent, work ethic and leadership.
    Grateful for his three incredible years with the team and personal accomplishments.
    But we are most thankful to see he made a great decision and is on track to transfer his college development toward success at the next level.

    Blaz Rola upset #55 Delbonis in the first round of the Aussie Open.
    His 2nd round match was made a bit easier when #13 seed John Isner retired vs. Klizan in the 3rd set.

    Rola has Klizan next who beat an injured Isner and before that has been in dreadful form. Then in the 3rd round he potentially has the winner of Robert/Przysiezny. Not the most daunting possible 3rd round match. Could Rola make the 4th round in his grand slam debut?? That would be incredible. I'm pulling for him.

    Devvarman vs Nedovyesov in the New Delhi final. Should be a good battle between former college #1's


    also Sanam Singh and Myneni(Alabama) took the doubles title.

    Blaz Rola won a Challenger in China this week beating Sugita in the final 6-7 6-3 6-4. He will be 128 in the rankings Monday. He is actually in the top 50 right now for points in the calendar year of 2014.

    Rola made a good decision to stay over in that part of the world and to make a run at some points. He picked up 90 with that win which is the equivalent to making the semis at a 250. I'm guessing he'll be playing qualies at Indian Wells this week because he isn't playing in Kyoto.

    Should be interesting. They never met in the IW pre-qualies. From what I've heard, they are good friends and have traveled together before so they'll know each other's game.

    M. Giron (UCLA) vs J. Jung (Michigan) for singles

    D. Novikov & C. Smith (OSU) vs S. Bangoura (Florida) & E. King (Michigan) for doubles

    Predictions on tourney champions?

    Blaz Rola is in the finals at Panama City after beating the #1 seed Albert Ramos in the semis. He'll have a new career again after the match. If he wins he'll be around 110.
