    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.

    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...

    how on earth is Lipman the #3 seed? This tournament has been hurt by the amount of pull outs.

    Austin Smith is an ok player. I heard that he has a pretty cookie-cutter game.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
