Its very possible but lets not get ahead of ourselves. GA looks young to me at the bottom....the Swedish freshman is gonna be a beast though. I was at the Tech v Ga match and it was amazingly close...Tech won 4-3 and won the final match despite being down match points...anything could have happened. But Tech won at #1, #2 and #5 in straights sets...the other 3 matches went 3 sets.
I think they are in a weird place, future wise. Hernus (who's actually from South Africa) will most definitely be a beast, come a year or so from now. But their current 2,3, and 6 players are all transfers in their Junior years, so they've pretty much reached their peak (at least close to it), and below that, I just see a whole lot of really solid, but unspectacular players. So I dunno.
Spencer is solid and Doumbia is a beast (undefeated, and easily so this spring in duals). Javy is always solid. So if they can win the doubles, I like their chances against MOST teams. I really do think on a good day they could beat a top 5 team, but I agree I havent seen the consistency to say they belong there right yet.
