well the weekend actually ended up being not so bad for Clemson.
def Sotomarino(UNF) 6-2 6-1
lost to Bjerrehus(VT) 6-1 4-6 7-5.
doubles w/ D.Maden.
def Kallberg/Lindmark (Ole Miss) 8-3
def Brasseaux/Diaz (UGA) 9-8(2)
def Austin/Lipman (Vandy) WO
def Pasha/Wagland (UGA) 8-4
lost to Alford/Diep 8-5
At first I was distraught over the loss to Bjerrehus but the Freshman Dane showed this week that he can play by beating Van Overbeek in straights. So the 3 set close one isn't so bad.
He and brother Dom played well in doubles. I like this team.
lost to Pieters (UGA) 7-6(4) 6-4
def Bao (FGC) 7-6(3) 6-3
vs Antun (VT) ?
doubles w/ Wibowo
lost to Chaundry/Stropp (Miss State) 8-5
Not a terrible loss to Pieters considering Pieters had a great week until the finals. Rebounded with a consolation win.
Has never been a great doubles player so not a surprise.
lost to Lutjen (Ole Miss) 7-6 6-3
lost to Offerdahl (Vandy) 6-2 6-1
Pretty good showing vs Lutjen who would go on to win the event. It was Lutjen's closest match of the tournament outside of the war with Pasha, rolled in all other matches. But Maden followed that up with a lopsided loss to Offerdahl. I don't know what happened there, bad match up or Dom was tired or what.
Did great in doubles with brother Yannick.
lost to Angus (Miss State) 6-4 3-6 7-6(5)
def Abdukhalikov (Tenn Tech)
def Mills (PC) 5-7 6-3 10-7
Really tough loss vs Angus. Would have liked to have seen him face of with BVO. But rebounded well with a whipping of the Kazakh from Tenn Tech, a guy who can play good tennis. And a nice close win over Mills who beat Hirooka of UK. Good to see him get a close win.
lost to Nunez (UGA) 6-4 6-3
def Johnson 6-4 6-4
def Strecker (Lipscomb) 3-6 6-3 10-6
First collegiate action for the talented freshman from Greensboro. Slightly disappointing loss to Nunez to start it off, but responded well and beat Johnson in a routine manner. Johnson gave Alford a tough match. Then a close win over Strecker who took Backstrom to 7-5 in the 3rd.
Ayrton Wibowo (d2 bracket)
def Andersson (Ga.College) 6-1 7-6
def Sharma (GT) 6-4 6-0
def Davisson (UNF) 6-2 7-6(6)
lost to Gomez (VT) 6-7(4) 6-2 6-1
not sure why Wibowo was in the D2 bracket, while Harrington and D maden played in d1, considering Wibowo had a ranked win last year, over Hess-Olesen of UNC. Had some routine wins over lesser players and a disappointing fade in sets 2 and 3 to Hokie Freshman Gomez.
