    Not a college player, but what ever did happen to DB? Did he get hurt?

    Don't talk to a doctor/nurse that way!

    At least he's getting some solid practice in assuming he's cleared to hit. I've seen footage of him playing and while his service motion gets on my nerves with how awkward it looks, I like the way he plays overall.

    Mackie madonald lost to Sangren again. in mexico challenger. he is starting to get owned by the journeyman. he needs to play better if he is to break into top 100

    Blaz Rola (OSU, 2010-13) won the Tallahassee challenger Saturday.
    Since climbing to #78 ATP ranking 2 years ago, Blaz had fallen to 300.
    Would love to see this win mark a turning point for Rola.

    I wonder who would win if Jason Jung played Mackie Macdonald?

    Jason would win at this point. JJ is much much better player since his college days at Michigan. He is a seasoned pro albeit journeyman. Mackie has more potential though. he can be consistent top 100 player if everything goes well and continues to improve

    Jarmere Jenkins of UVa retired recently due to injuries. I am pretty sure Clay Thompson of UCLA retired about a year ago. Mitchell Frank also had surgeries post-UVa and I believe he is now an assistant coach at George Mason.

    Any other retirements recently?

    Clay Thompson is still playing. I think he retired in September, but then got a sponsor Tenacity who he works for, and started playing again. He has played 3 Futures in CA in 2017 but lost early in the main draw. He lost in the first round to Mackie McDonald in Calabasas in late March. I listened to an interview of him-interesting guy-think his major was creative writing-definitely a thinker as well as a player.
