Look for Morrissey to beat Styslinger tomorrow afternoon.
looking at the main draw, another SoCal name pop up .. Ace Matias ,how did he get into the main draw? is he ranked that high ?
transfer to UNLV might have helped!?
how ? .. he didn't have to qualify ... he's ranked below a lot of players who had to qualify ...
Alvarez (OU) vs. Clay Thompson (UCLA) will be the match-up of 2 college big hitters. I'm hoping Alvarez could stay consistent and take advantage of the more powerful yet less consistent Thompson.
He may have a high enough Regional Ranking, assume they automatically take players from each Region ranked Top 3-4 Regional
Alvarez has the most beautiful forehand in college tennis.
Clay can't move. he moves like Andre the giant
Michael Grant with the upset of Ryan Lipman 7-5 3-4 def.
Topdawg, can you go down there ask the coaches to turn on the Webcam or ask them to fix this debacle ?
Didn't make the trip down there so sorry I can't be of any help.
Can you talk to all you Dawg friends to petition ITA to move this event next year to Georgia tennis stadium who has a pretty nice cam( though no sound) ? or move it to Texas A&M or Stanford(best webcam anywhere). These all good choices for this great event. Not Tulsa who promised ITA a good webcam coverage but did not come thru with it.
Lipman still isn't healthy it looks like. Had shaky results in Athens too.
I was thinking Dennis over the #1 ,M.Grant over #3 and Jonny over #2
I think he needs to past 1st round first...
he is playing nobody in the 1st round. That match is a Gimme.
how on earth is Lipman the #3 seed? This tournament has been hurt by the amount of pull outs.
you are making me laugh again ... that Mr. Smith is very good...
Morrissey Cruising toward victory, up 3-0 in 1st set against Mr. Smith. Double bagel ? Go get em, Neo.
Austin has pushed it to a 3rd set. Momentum seems to have swung...
Austin now up 4-1 in the 3rd on Morrissey
Goldhoff is going to win this whole event.
Austin Smith is an ok player. I heard that he has a pretty cookie-cutter game.
what does cookie cutter game ? is that like Pusher game like andy murray ?
Three Sooners in the 2nd round of ITA, Webb is playing Andrews (ND), Alcorta will play Quiroz and Alvarez is set to start against Sarmiento very soon. It would be very interesting to see how the OU-USC duo turns out.
Tennis7777777: Beers for me! Really surprised Austin wiped out Efferding and that Grant beat Lipman. Wonder if he is injured since he retired? Hemmeler not himself this fall. Lin is good, but not 1 and 2 good. Wonder what's up there as well? Didn't think Contini would win as easily as he did and although I picked their opponents only surprised that Powell or Bogaerts won fairly easily. Too late to pick the next round.
Homer pick. Will it be Center's fault when he loses?
Big serve, big forehand? That would be cookie-cutter to me.
2 out of 3, well done. Wang over Kobelt 6-3 in the 3rd
The Sooners all play better as individuals than they do as a team.
How about that Ronnie Schneider - the pride of Bloomington, Indiana has taken out both Cal's #1 (McLachlan) and Georgia's #1 (Wagland).
Goldhoff split sets with #1 Libietis.
Darn good showing for the Freshman.
Nobody can stop him. Except maybe Michael Center
better than well done.. remember this is the first round... too bad Dennis let me down a bit, but he took the 1st seed to a tight 3... and can't say enough for my 2 SoCal boyz... taking out the 2 and 3 seeds ,and these guys weren't even starters last year..
Down goes Libietis. It could be a Goldhoff/Schneider matchup on Saturday if they both win tomorrow.
This year in college tennis might have some seismic changes in terms of top players. It looks like the top guys from last year have all taken a step back and the new guys are better than last year's new guys.
This is one of the reasons I like college tennis. Anything can happen.
wow .. Giron is out... he's been winning pro tournaments .. he was one of my top choice to win this thing ...
I predicted this. Johnny Wang is next Jan Michael Gambill or Marion Bartoli.
Jonny Wang, USC (Q) d. Peter Kobelt (2), Ohio State 4-6 7-6 (4) 6-3
well done. I know you get flack here but I actually find your posts informative and refreshing.
Thank you and as for what happened to Morrissey, he wasn't 100 % today. This is still very early in the season and he isn't yet playing at his top form. but as the season starts in 2014, he will be a threat to win the NCAA title. He is that talented.
Way to go Ray. Now a favorite to win this tournament.
Ray Sarmiento (7), USC d. Axel Alvarez, Oklahoma (Q) 7-5 6-0
and Morrissey playing well and up in the 1st set against Redlicki.
So why isn't he in top form? What did he do during the summer? Go to school?
LOL My mind just exploded reading that and trying to decipher it.
Schneider seems to be the real deal. I saw him beat a ranked player at the UVa Ranked+1 tournament even though he played the second and third sets with a leg cramp. Dropped the second set, trailed 2-4 in the third and was cramping, and won it anyway.
This Mr. Smith maybe better than I thought. He won his 2nd round match and is moving on.

Who is this Winston Lin from Columbia. He beat Grant from USC and is playing Frank in next round.
awe man you jinxed him .. he lost..
jinxing, is a term stupid superstitious people use to hide the fear of ignorance and fear of losing.
Winston was a very strong junior, top 20 his senior year. Very talented ball-striker and also a really nice kid. Definitely the cream of the crop in terms of the Ivy's this year. Glad to see him having so much success.
It's going to be fun watching him (albeit from a distance) and see just how far he goes, I can't imagine if he stays healthy for 4 years he doesnt have a top 10 or top 5 ranking.
I guess he lost due to lack of skill and ability then.
