    I hope Meister and Thompson both win, just so So Cal's complaining amounts to nothing.

    Correction: Gomez over Giron at #4, which changes everything. USC in command at this point.

    Giron and Mkrtchian, both freshmen, will have to win in 3 sets in order for UCLA to pull off the upset. I don't think Meister will upset Johnson, despite the heroic effort in the first set.

    I expect a close USC win, but these two UCLA-USC matches confirm in my mind that there are five top contenders for the title in Athens. It will be quite a tournament.

    not sure how close this win is going to be...

    but i assume this makes a uva-ucla quarterfinal almost a certainty, and that one should be fun

    Giron and Novikov go down, not gonna be close as ClarkC said

    I was wondering if that loss last week would end up being good for them.

    The bruins fall in Ojai 4-1 Meister loses a tough battle to Steve Johnson, Puget was in a tough third set with Hanfmann 5-5 in the third

    Johnson must have zipped through those last few games

    What protest?

    USC protested UCLA's lineup in their home match last week. If USC won the protest, Meister's win over Sarmiento last week would have not counted, giving USC the win. The protest didn't stand, but UCLA was required to play Meister ahead of Thompson for this tournament.

    Was the score 4-1 or 4-2?

    Puget held serve at 5-5 per UCLA twitter feed. I would trust that above the conference that suppressed score info all tourney.

    I'm surprised that USC's 2, 5 and 6 are struggling so much during this time. Hanfmann was steady and clutch during indoors and Quiroz never seemed to dominate the 6 position against any top PAC 12 schools. Sarmiento's loss to Thompson is also weird. Don't think he's ever lost to him. USC needs to step up at these positions

    I wonder why Oregon does not have the same commitment to excellence in tennis as they do to every other sport.

    I've wondered that too. They have a really nice indoor/outdoor complex.

    If I was a high level recruit, I would be all over that school. Have you seen their cheerleaders?!?!?!

    The more pertinent question is have the cheerleaders ever seen a tennis match? My guess is "No."
