    No idea, he hasn't looked too sharp in recent outings. Probably something niggling.

    Coach Paul said he was a little banged up so they gave him the night off.

    Did it end up 4-3? Any idea if Blumberg has an injury?

    UNC won 4-3 after TCU took 3 setters at 2-4. Why does it seem like TCU always has depth issues? They are always weak at 6 and sometimes at 5 too. They got rocked at 5 and 6 vs UNC.

    Looks like TCU has an injury at #3, with Gray out since ITA First Round

    Can UNC or TCU challenge Stanford in next week's ITA indoors or NCAA tournament in May ?

    Will Fawcett stay until then? NCAA on hard courts could interfere with his Wimbledon prep.

    currently Fawcett is just concentrating on winning the NCAA team and individual champion ships and getting the Wild card into US open main draw. and he can win the US open as a wildcard.

    Texas takes the dubs against UNC, could be an upset chance here.

    Pathetic effort from Virginia Tech in singles vs Duke after winning doubles today. Two double bagel losses on courts 4 and 5 and a 6-1 6-1 loss on court 6.

    UNC barely beats Duke 4-3. Blumberg loses at 1, and it took Sigouin 3 sets to win at 2. Close doubles too.

    UVA is so up and down. Pushed a good Illinois team yet gets piledriven by freaking Louisville.

    Wake played at VT yesterday, and 4 of Wake's top 5 players didn't play (Gojo, Petros, Botzer, and Seraphim). Wake was still able to pull of an impressive 7-0 victory.

    And where were the top 4 players? Oh they were playing professional tournaments during the college season and not playing in their college match. Hmm. That's allowed?

    Two were playing professional tournaments (Gojo and Petros) and two played doubles but not singles (Botzer and Seraphim), so I assume they may have minor injuries. Yes, professional tournaments are allowed. Many college players participate in them.

    During college season. Wake Forest hasn't played a college match since the indoors. I'm not sure why those professional players are bothering to be on a college team. Odd.

    Really? Because Petros played Arthur Rinderknech from A&M and Patrick Kypson was also in the draw. Also, I'm pretty sure Wake didn't make the rules allowing college players to play pro tournaments.

    I understand that these players are allowed to play pro events, but it still seems like a strange choice, especially during conference matches. Go and cheer on your teammates.

    The player(s) getting to play in the line up due to the teammate playing an in season pro tournament are thankful they are not there. Otherwise the lower ladder team members would be riding the pine. Most programs coaches that have player(s) who play pro in season have made those agreements with players months in advance and also made plans for their team while their top players are out. These circumstance benefit the player in the pro tournament with strong competition, and benefit the team as a whole as lower ladder team members get valuable match experience. It's a win win.

    It's great for the lower level players on the team but would be even better if the top guys were there cheering them on, at least during conference matches. The better guys should play the pro events earlier in the season but come back for the conference matches, whether or not they are in the lineup, and support their teammates. Just my opinion.

    I respect your opinion. But in my opinion the players and coaches taking advantage of the pro ITF events in season don't agree, or they would not do it. Low level players on teams like Wake Forest, A&M, OSU etc. are likely UTR 12 types or so who have extensive playing backgrounds. They don't need the approval or cheer leading of the top players on their teams to perform. They need real match play for further development, match play they may not get if the top players were there and available to play. I stand by my pervious comment, its a win win for everyone.

    It's also a dynamic situation. The only reason Gojo and Petros missed the VT match on Friday was because they were still alive in their respective pro tournaments. That certainly wasn't a guarantee, especially since Petros was playing a Challenger. Both Petros and Gojo made it back in town today for a Wake 4-1 win over #11 USC.

    Wake Forest's bench is so talented that their 8th and 9th players are ranked 13.2, 13.3 UTR-their bench guys would play 3 for Clemson or GA Tech! Wake's 9 had a top 100 ITA ranking in the fall.

    Some posters question the commitment of players. However, I wanted to mention Rinderknech of Texas A&M who lost to Petros on 3/15 in 3 sets early in the day at the Irving Challenger and returned the same day to Texas A&M to play 1 vs Notre Dame and beat Lebedev. That's being a great team player!

    My UTR example was a guess on the ratings, but your confirming their actual ratings solidifies my point. Thanks

    Worth mentioning that Coach Bresky's wife also had a baby during the month off.... might have been some intentional scheduling so he could log some diaper changing hours!
    Wake isn't the first team to do this - recall UVA did something very similar last year. Gojo in his second year with the program, Petros in his third - both are great team members who have won their share of huge matches for Wake.

    And it was a pretty close match. Wake also played without two singles players - Botzer and Seraphim. I think Wake is probably the best team, but they are beatable.

    Would appear WFU has played well all year with no slips like other top teams. TCU also appears to be healthy and hitting their stride

    Pretty common now for college players to play pro events during the season, Kypson playing today in Miami missing a match, Redlicki Zhou Ayeni Fawcett all playing in Cali this week

    After beating Miami, Clemson 7-2, 2-1 ACC loses to UNC Asheville 4-8, 1-2 Big South. Now Clemson was missing Favrot, and UNC-A has one ITA ranked player-their 1s Patten- so losing 2 points is not a surprise but 4 points! Clemson Power UTR is 79 vs UNC Asheville's 72 (which means their players average 12 UTR-actually less than that as Patten is almost a 14-UNCA only has one other player ranked a low 12-rest are sub 12s). For comparison, the top 9 ACC teams #6 is UTR 12.9+ with the top 3's #6 13.5+

    Wake with a strong match against Duke, winning 6-1. The top 4 singles players for Wake were very impressive. Gojo beat Alvarez 6-1, 6-0! Botzer lost badly - hopefully he can recover his early season form.
