    US colleges with clay courts?

    Columbia used to have the world's worst clay courts in the 90's. They had four clay courts in two separate bubbles. It was dirty, dark and dingy inside those bubbles and impossible to beat them there in the 90's.

    Have there been any ATP or WTA players who went to Ivy schools ?

    I am not a big fan of The Ivy League but this is an ignorant comment. The Ivy League has become one of the best tennis conferences in the country. This year 6 of the 8 teams in the conference were ranked in the final ITA Rankings...Columbia (15), Dartmouth (31), Harvard (33), Cornell (48)...

    Idiots playing College tennis?

    Are you kidding with this thread? There are plenty of instances where a coach has to beg the school to admit a kid with a low GPA or a low TOEFL score (for foreign recruits) but I strongly doubt you are going to find anybody willing to provide an example in a public forum. Also, even though it...

    The ACI has been cancelled. Very disappointing.

    Under Armour Schools and Shoes

    UA, not surprisingly, has different deals with each of its schools. That said, UA's practice is to allows sports in which UA does not make footwear (i.e. tennis and volleyball) to wear sneakers made by any manufacturer other than Nike or Adidas. Most go with Asics because Asics offers a pretty...

    Coaches Hot Seat

    To suggest that Boland is anywhere close to the hot seat does not make any sense at all. He took a program thay was mediocre before he got there and has turned it in to a powerhouse rivaling the best programs in history. On top of that, the support he receives from the tennis community in...

    This could be the most ridiculous post ever.

    Texas debacle continues

    I strongly doubt that she will go back to Yale. I won't say never but it would be shocking if that were the case.

    Coaches Hot Seat

    Boland's seat is nowhere near hot. No AD in this country is firing a tennis coach two years after winning a national championship and a year after winning an 8th consecutive ACC Championship. The only thing that could cost Boland his job at any point in the near future would be if he was found...
