Whit will pull his hair after Kandath's poor display at #2... I guess Kandath at #1 is out of the question for the rest of season unless something really unexpected happens.


Taken from Stanford tennis page:

Jan. 15, 2013

STANFORD, Calif.- No. 10 Stanford blanked Sacramento State 7-0 on Tuesday afternoon at Taube Family Tennis Stadium in the season opener for both teams.

Stanford (1-0) captured the doubles point to take a 1-0 lead before sweeping all six singles matches. Three Cardinal freshmen picked up victories in their first career dual match at the Nos. 3-5 positions of the lineup.

Leading 1-0, John Morrissey cruised to a 6-1, 6-3 victory on court one. Morrissey is Stanford's lone nationally-ranked singles player, checking in at No. 39.

After Robert Stineman secured a 6-3, 6-1 win at the No. 6 spot, Nolan Paige provided the clincher with a 6-3, 6-1 triumph at the No. 3 position.

Stanford is back in action this weekend, making an appearance in the Sherwood Cup at Thousand Oaks, Calif.
This Sherwood cup should give us a good picture about pac-12. USC and UCLA will be there as well as Baylor. we will see how the freshmen and sophomores from Stanford perform against experienced UCLA and USC players. If they are competitive and pull off some upsets, we will see a good competitive Stanford team this year.
