two 30-30 return games for duke, let's make one count, or both?
cal holds at 4, 4-4 mengel to serve
awesome tennis at 1, cunha earns break pt
big old break from the barriCunha
time for mengel to get a big hold
Feddie, what's up with the video being a point behind the scoreboard.
30-30 at 4, both guys look scared, not pretty
mengel fights off brk pt and holds, 5-4
and cunha returning up 5-3
two match / brk pts for cunha, he's playing like a champ right now, going for his shots
When McLachlan hits his one hand backhand it's a nice shot but he keeps slicing everything back. Cunha eating him up
mengel at deuce, biggest points of the day coming up
big down the line return earns him match / brk pt, here we go duke
dink chip return gets him in trouble - hit. the. ball.
earns a second match pt with some solid forehands
misses the second serve return - gah - but at least he went for it
proud of the bears
aggressive again and earns third match pt - third time the charm again???
wow, crazy pt with lots of dropshots and lobs, back to deuce, grrr
well that was interesting point in the mengel match.
cunha has made the win official at 1
and mengel facing a game pt for 5-5
Stanford/Boise State in a tight one too.
5-5 in the 3rd, deciding match, college tennis is a hell of a sport
let's do it mengel
Bayane, lets go Frenchy
cal will serve 5-6
to a tb, this is what it's all about
strange ace by mengel to start - wasn't a particularly ace-worthy serve - cal watched though haha
first mini break to mengel 2-0
he looks to have a bit more confidence in his groundies right now, let's go
3-1 as the frenchman misses an opening he created
then 3-2 on a mengel error
let's get this last one before the switch
cal chooses to fool with their scoreboard now, but looks like 3-3 after a close winner? by cal
mini break on a bad cal error - 4-3 mengel to serve
overhead from mid court by cal makes it 4-4 - big, big, point
and cal serving 5-4 now
what happened there?
6-4 grrr well then, bad string of points at a very bad time
OMG!! This might happen
nice win by cal, mengel will be thinking about those three match points for a bit
when you basically start up 3-0 with a better #1 player and way too much depth at #s 5 and 6, you should probably win the match
but all four other guys (well, three and dubs) decided to lose - unfortunate but i'll take that rematch on a neutral site in NCAAs for sure
nice win, i suppose i deserved that after talking smack on the other thread recently
Season changing win. Very strong effort from the guys, they wanted this match so bad. To tell you the truth after our loss to SDSU I wasn't feeling good about this one, good thing the team believed more than I did! Bayane is a hero!
Duke has all the talent in the world but again they show that they can be out-fought. (Illinois and UNC last year other examples). They need one of their players to really show some steel in tough situations, like Cunha did today.
sweet a guy that went to my high school plays for virginia tech hunter koontz
Gonna call exaggeration somewhat on this, if Wagland was gone for 4.5 minutes then he would have racked enough Time Violation Pt Penalties to end the match anyways, so not knowing bathroom facilities at Starkvegas, not sure the timeline holds up.
Men either have 90 sec on changeover or 2 min set break (or coach time) otherwise it is considered a medical and already a pt penalty, then time violations begin racking up with first being a warning.
Not sure a referee would let this fly, much less the MS State Coach.
Unless the coaches agree otherwise, of course.
Cardinal on a roll. Downs the bronchos 4-3. Can they go straight to NCAA team title undefeated from this point ?
Feddie, do you really not know the answer to your question?
I already have them penciled in for the team final.
of course but even 4.5 minutes is a little overkill unless there are no bathrooms at the facilities.
#1 Virginia at #38 Baylor – 4pm est/3pm cst – Livestats, LiveVideo, & BU Live Blog
Baylor will have to step up but looking at line-ups, can't see where they can win??
nice to see they have video but what does this message mean ?

Feddie, remarkably it means "Click here to download the latest version of the Flash plugin to view this content".
Virginia takes dubs over Baylor. Baylor up early breaks on 2 and 4 while UVA up break on 3.
Baylor with 1st sets at 1 and 4. Everywhere else on serve...very surprising start for Baylor in singles.
Well it's pretty evident now that Baylor is very talented. This is a top 10 team. Looks like the new pieces are starting to gel nicely.
Texas had Virginia on the ropes like this a couple years ago and completely collapsed. Lets see if Baylor can keep it up.
