that is really amazing....no final4 for all programms except UVA?
Ohio state have been a few times
This is a thread about ACC tennis. Not sure what relevance Ohio State has to the discussion.
Was there in Athens for the first three LONG days of the tournament. The bottom of the Ohio State singles lineup is really going to have to step up against Virginia. Overall, I think they (Ohio State) are going to need the doubles point and at least two points from the 4, 5 and 6 match-ups to win. Virginia will probably sacrifice Ritschard at no. 1 against Torpegaard like they did against Texas (Sigsgaard). So no. 1 singles is a lock for Ohio State imo.
This one reason of many why Boland leaving UVA will see that program implode.

Great catch, I got my threads mixed up. Apologies to everyone forced to read it.
Should this just be the NCAA tournament thread now?
Well..we've still got the singles/doubles championships but I understand your point.
Not sure where to put this. First trip to the Wake tennis facility today for the WS 250 and I was very impressed. Much better than Georgia IMHO. Look forward to returning
It's a great facility, glad you enjoyed it. The set up is a bit different though during the college season, as the center court and courts 2-3 don't have stands around them (they're currently temporary for the WS Open). The bank of college courts (practice courts for WS Open) are the main courts during college season. The NCAA championships this year will be great.
Wake announced this week that 3 more players will join the team in January (Cungu from Montenegro, Dempster transferring from NC State, and Nava transferring from TCU). Wake's team has become extremely deep as they are gearing up for a run at the NCAA title, which Wake will host. http://www.wakeforestsports.com/sports/m-tennis/spec-rel/121317aaa.html
Meanwhile UNC have still to share their schedule.
Wake just released their schedule this week http://www.wakeforestsports.com/sports/m-tennis/sched/wake-m-tennis-sched.html
Awesome Carolina host Wake at 3pm on a Wednesday, that should add to the crowd. Jeez.
They have to be the favorite to win it all. If they are healthy, its theirs
Florida State could be pretty good this year. The top 3 of Dougaz, Iradukunda and Poullain is pretty strong.
The bad news from Virginia is that Henrik Wiersholm had surgery and will miss the whole season. He did not play in the fall. Hopefully he can come back next year as a 5th year senior.
Does this scare you ?? Fear the Tree.

Fear the tree? What a sap.
Virginia edges Richmond 4-3
man, in previous years UVA probably could have played their 5-10 guys and kept UofR off the scoreboard
and Duke wins in the ASU program re-start
good to see ASU back out there - I remember well when I was in college and ASU suffered the unfortunate couple day stretch of losing in NCAAs and finding out that was not just their last match of the season
Well Virginia didnt have their top 2 playing and then they didnt put Gianni Ross at 1. Some of the early Jan matches are puzzling. I went to the GT MLK event with Illinois, UGA, and Columbia.#4 UGA's returning lineup actually lost more of their singles to #23 Columbia, but they had Emil playing #1 instead of Wayne. If the matchups had been in the order of last year, UGA would have won the majority of matches, but it was an exhibition that didnt count with 10 lines playing. I guess coaches can experiment in these early matches. In some of the Jan matches, where Power teams are playing MMs, the power teams may put players in that will not see the lineup the rest of the year. UVA had a player playing who is a low 11 UTR. In a match against ranked or Power opponents, UVA has 7 guys over UTR 13 to play. I am sure the bench players enjoyed getting to play, but UVA probably didnt think it would be that close.
Virginia also has a very young team-only 1 senior. Technically there are 11 on the roster, including 7 freshmen (3 blue chip-will contribute, but 2 three star and one no star? plus one international) and 1 RS freshmen. There are 7 guys on the roster that are of the level to play ACC tennis-UVA better hope no more than one is sick or injured at time. Compare that to Wake with an incredible bench-10 players with UTR 13+, their 9th best player plays Future Qualis and has an ITA rating. However UVA is not the only ACC team with a shallow bench-add GT and your alumnus college Clemson to the list. I am curious to see who will play #6 for GT.

Wiersholm is out for the year and Soderlund is also injured and out for an unknown period of time though.
If both are out, Columbia could upset VA next weekend. Without the top 2, Columbia is even with UVA at 1-4 and a lot better at 5-6. Columbia did well vs UGA last weekend; GA has 5 players with ITA rankings, and 4 lost to Columbia in Atlanta.
However, Columbia barely beat Old Dominion today. Lost dubs but won 4-3. ODU is as good as a lot of power teams. Teams may be rusty after winter break...
I just don't think UVA is going to be very good this year. As noted, Wiersholm is out and they have very little depth.
Notre Dame has beaten Kentucky after losing to Kentucky 2-5 last year. Score is currently 4-2 with line 3 in a 3rd set. ND won dubs. Looks like this year NC State and Notre Dame could move from the bottom 1/3 of ACC to the middle, and GT and VA could move from the top 1/3 to the middle or possibly lower. I cant see Wake or UNC losing to any team besides each other in ACC.
