Yeah Duke will be worse this year but I think you're underestimating them. They still have 3 top 50 ranked guys in the ITA rankings and that's not including Tahir who was certainly playing at that level this summer. Plus, semenzato just beat Bogaerts in the opening tournament of the year and Levine will be a solid bottom of the lineup player. I'd still expect them to be top 15 even without Mengel
