ACC tennis
That's right.

Today's results:

Clemson 5, NC State 2
Good win. All straight set matches. Clemson took 2-4 and 6. Our two seniors were the only losers, once again.

Georgia Tech 6, Wake Forest 1
The Tripper meltdown continues. Wake Forest has such terrible team chemistry. So much talent wasted. Wolff had a strong win, but GT was able to win every other court.

Virginia 7, Florida State 0
Straight forward win for UVa

Miami 6, Virginia Tech 1
Lame performance from the Hokies. Miami is getting better and better, they have been a surprise this year.

Tar Heel Tennis 03-27-2011 05:49 PM

North Carolina 7 Boston College 0
UNC won all three doubles matches. All singles matches were straight set victories.

Yeah the BC/Maryland weekend is a wash for most teams in the league. Maryland was supposed to be improved but has been quite dissapointing

Clemson_tennis 03-29-2011 08:34 PM

Wake beat NC State 5-2. Very close match that NC State should have won. Pulgar and Hogson killed Carleton(he's gonna fall out the rankings, amazing) and Wolff. Wake won 3-6 all in 3sets. The Pack choked away the doubles point.

Georgia Tech at Clemson tomorrow. I will be there in the awful indoor courts as a monsoon is predicted.

If Clemson is to have any shot at beating GT, Galloway must be dropped from the line-up. He is in a major slump. That would but Moran at 5 and Rigsby at 6. Both of them have been on fire as of late and have decent shots at 5 and 6. However Georgia Tech will be too strong at 1-3 and doubles for it to matter anyway most likely.

GT def Clemson 6-1

very tough loss. The score says 6-1 but it was much closer. 4 of our 5 losses were 3 set battles.

1: 16 Gomez def DiFazio 6-4 2-6 6-4:This was the heartbreaker. This would have easily been DiFazio's best win of his career and really helped his ranking. Gomez came out the blocks firing. He was taking the ball early and commanding every point with a long wind-up forehand. Typical Spaniard style, raced to a 3-0 lead. DiFazio fought back and forced Gomez to start taking the ball later and being less confident. DiFazio played very well in the 2nd set. He dictated the angles. Gomez lost his ability to get on top the ball and dictate. DiFazio also took advantage of Gomez's poor movement to his backhand side. DiFazio had a 4-3 lead in the 3rd set and had points for a 5-3 lead but then the wheels fell off. For whatever reason DiFazio fell apart. Winning no points from 4-4 till the end. Gomez was able to prevail after a controversial call at 30-0.(DiFazio made a big deal out of it, but it didn't matter the wheels were already gone).

Gomez is a future pro. He can probably crack the top 200 in the ATP. I think he would be very strong on clay. He has more sense and ability on the forehand wing than most everyone else I have seen in college. If he can add a little bit of power he can be a good challenger clay court player in the future.

2: Y.Maden def 67 Spir 6-4 6-1
Impressive victory for Yannick. He was very close to another ranked win when he barely fell to Wolff after blowing a 5-2 lead. He will be in the rankings soon. Spir got off to a qucik start and led 3-0 in the 1st set. Yannick then outscored Spir 6-1 6-1 Spir could not hit the court with a volley all match. Into the net or wide everytime. It was scary to watch.

GT would win 4-6 in tight 3 set affairs.

Duke @ UVA Friday afternoon

yes, Duke is most likely going to get killed, but some great tennis to be seen, i'm jealous of anyone going to this match

1 dubs and 1,2 singles are going to be awesome (well, I feel better about Duke keeping those close if it's Cunha-Domijan and Carleton-Shabaz, the reverse might be rough for Carleton)

ClarkC 03-30-2011 07:02 PM

Virginia and Duke each have two singles players in the top 8, and 1 doubles team in the top 6 in the ITA rankings. The competition at the top of the lineups will be extremely high quality.

Automator 03-30-2011 07:45 PM

Yea, depth is where UVA outclasses Duke on paper, although the two times these two team splayed each other last year were outright brawls.

Clemson_tennis 03-30-2011 07:51 PM

also Duke plays well on fast courts so the advantage that UVA has on the fast courts will not be as large.

Clemson_tennis 04-01-2011 08:27 AM

Predictions for today:

Virginia 6, Duke 1
North Carolina 6, Virginia Tech 1
Clemson 6, Maryland 1
Georgia Tech 7, Boston College 0
Miami 4, Wake Forest 3
Florida State 5, NC State 2

mikej 04-01-2011 11:58 AM

damn, shabaz-courtney are tough...just about any other team i feel pretty good if the dubs pt is coming down to 6-6 at #1 dubs...but i felt that break coming...

time to fight to avoid the shutout...

Good prediction on Virginia-Duke, but Maryland 5-2 over Clemson was a shocker.

EDIT: I also see that UNC only beat Virginia Tech 4-3.

Clemson_tennis 04-01-2011 07:38 PM

I am very dissapointed in the loss to Maryland. it is a large step back after some steps forward. We played quite well against GT and Miami. This was a poor showing. Especially from Dom Maden and Moran.

But Y.Maden and DiFazio have been hot. They may be in the rankings soon.

Clemson_tennis 04-03-2011 08:03 AM

Today picks:

Clemson 6, Boston College 1
Georgia Tech 6, Maryland 1
Virginia 5, UNC 2: Slight letdown after Duke match and UNc will nip 2 mathces in 10 point tiebreakers
Duke 6, Virginia Tech 1
Floida State 4, Wake Forest 3: Tripper Carleton can't buy a win at the moment. Mizradeh should beat Wolff.
Miami 6, NC State 1

ACC SID's getting real lazy these days. Wake Forest,Virginia Tech,Maryland and Boston College have all axed their live scoring function.

HoosTennis 04-03-2011 01:37 PM

Virginia's live stats for it's matches has and is working fine

What do you mean Virginia has axed their live scoring function? Virginia's live stats is working fine.

sorry I meant Virginia Tech

mikej 04-03-2011 01:52 PM

duke either 6-1 or 7-0, they have it up now

assume 6-1, they have #4 singles credited to VT, but score shows saba in 3, probably just mixed up 3rd set winner

Clemson_tennis 04-03-2011 04:17 PM

Today's results:

my picks were pretty close.

Virginia def Duke 5-2: UVA is almost a solid lock in doubles and #2 singles. Shabaz lost his 2nd in a row to Hernandez(UVA fans comment on Hernandez's play of you were there). Jenkins is in a mini-slump. But Virginia dominated in the rest, so 5-2 but wasn't that close.

Duke 6, Virginia Tech 1: Actually kind of a struggle. Virginia Tech battles at 5 and 6 and won on court 4. Virginia Tech is showing a little bit of fight now late in the year.

Wake 4 FSU 3: Tripper Carleton ends his massive slump in style, thumping Bowles 6-1 6-0. Blake Davis was crushed at 3 by Atkinson 1 and 1. Strong performance by Wake. Their individual talent has never been the issue, its the team chemistry and mental toughness of the team that is questionable.

Georgia Tech def Maryland 5-2: Horny flat out sucks.

Miami 5, NC State 2:Expected result but unexpected where the points came from. Miami is usally a deep team but was beaten at 5 and 6. NC State, more top heavy was beaten at 1-4. Matches 2-4 were all 6-4 6-4 to Miami.

Clemson and Boston College: No clue because BC's website has zilch on it. Somebody must be playing a match to rival Isner/Mahut.
