SEC Tennis
I see a thread on here for the ACC, Big 10, Pac 12, Northeast, etc so I figured we need to get a thread going for the best conference in the land - The Southeastern Conference.

Here is the schedule for Sunday March 4th with Live Stats links included along with my prediction:

Florida hosts Georgia at 12 noon est Live Stats - UGA 4-3
Arkansas hosts Kentucky at 12:30 pm est Live Stats - UK 7-0
South Carolina hosts Tennessee at 1 pm est Live Stats - UT 5-2
Mississippi State hosts Auburn at 2 pm est Live Stats - Miss State 5-2
LSU hosts Vanderbilt at 2 pm est - Live Stats - LSU 4-3
Ole Miss hosts Alabama at 2 pm est Live Stats - Ole Miss 6-1

Georgia up a break on all 3 doubles courts earlier on. 3-1 3-0 2-1. The new pairings seem to be doing well so far. Still early though

Kentucky sweeps the doubles against Arkansas. It is noteworthy that Alejandro Gomez is not playing doubles or singles; must be injured. Only affects positions 5 and 6 and #3 doubles.

hard to believe pieters-taboada is the best of those three dubs teams for UGA, but if they can get away with it and have that kind of confidence in their teams at 2-3, fair enough i guess

TopDawg 03-04-2012 11:07 AM

Georgia takes the doubles point with wins at 2 and 3 winning both courts 8-4. Pieters/Doumbia lose 8-6 to Federhofer/Sliliam at 1. Manny has tried a slew of different doubles pairings this year, I thought the Pieters/Doumbia combo was pretty good with Tabodoa/Pasha second. He'll probably keep mixing it up.

TopDawg 03-04-2012 11:30 AM

Sliliam in the singles lineup for UF. The Pasha/Alford matchup at 6 should be interesting. Pasha has been blowing people out in going 9-0 in the dual season. He's only dropped 1 set in that span. Alford is also undefeated in duals going 5-0 though he wasn't in the lineup against Georiga at the NTIs.

TopDawg 03-04-2012 11:51 AM

Pieters seems to have found some confidence - leading 5-0 in the 1st set. Singh up a break on Sliliam at 3 and Carleton up a break on Doumbia at 2. Everything else on serve.

TopDawg 03-04-2012 12:27 PM

South Carolina and Tennessee in a good one. UT won dubs pt to go up 1-0and the teams split 1st sets. Miss State took the doubles point from Auburn, Ole Miss took the doubles point from Alabama, LSU took the doubles point from Vandy winning 9-8 at 1. Kentucky up 4-0 on Arkansas.

TopDawg 03-04-2012 12:28 PM

Florida with 4 1st sets taking 1 & 3 in tiebreaks. Singh was up 5-3 in the 1st set and let it slip away. Georgia up a set and a break at 4 & 5 but will need a 3rd set from someone else. Florida has come out strong in singles.

mikej 03-04-2012 12:30 PM

looks like having to play against the full UF lineup has made things quite a bit tougher for UGA

4 first sets dropped in singles, so gonna take at least one 3-setter to do it

duke was off the court long before the current 2.5 hour mark without dropping a set, hmmm

mikej 03-04-2012 12:34 PM

however, my money is still on UGA considering they'll be up 3-0 soon and have some fit guys

would be nice for 2-3 of them to go three sets so the pressure isn't squarely on one guy's shoulders

TopDawg 03-04-2012 12:45 PM

Kentucky beats Arkansas 6-1 with only Rossi losing at #3 in a 3rd set supertiebreak.

TopDawg 03-04-2012 12:53 PM

Now 3-0 UGA with Tabodoa and Pieters winning in straights. Carleton close to finishing off Doumbia and Alford is up a set and a break on Pasha. Spencer blowing out Van Overbeek so that one is heading to a 3rd set and could be the decider.

TopDawg 03-04-2012 01:06 PM

Getting interesting now with Florida cutting the Georgia lead to 3-2 with Sliliam and Carleton winning. Van Overbeek up 2-0 in the 3rd on Spencer but Pasha has come back from 4-1 down in the 2nd to tie it at 4.

mikej 03-04-2012 01:20 PM

gonna be a tough pill for alford to swallow if he fails to bring it home for his team with that kind of lead in the second set

TopDawg 03-04-2012 01:24 PM

Alford closes the door on Pasha 6-4 7-5. Florida now in the drivers seat with van Overbeek up 4-1 in the 3rd.

Satsuma Florida 03-04-2012 01:31 PM

VOB up 5-2 now.

The Wreck 03-04-2012 01:33 PM

Bummed about the way this match is shaping up. I was just at the UGA v Florida womens match and UGA wound up losing that one 4-3 as well.

TopDawg 03-04-2012 01:36 PM

Now 5-4 Van Overbeek. I believe it's back on serve but not 100% sure.

mikej 03-04-2012 01:36 PM

pretty sure it's on serve again, VOB broken serving at 5-3
