I think Libetis just sprained his ankle, that's probably the match, not like Tennessee had a chance at winning this anyway. Amazing get on a serve let cord by Jarmere Jenkins, it has to be said.

What a contrast in styles between the Tennessee and UVA players. The Vols sure like to serve and volley and close in on the net a lot, Williams somehow missed the memo when he went there. What is on Ryan Shane's back?

Libietis should retire. No point in this now.

Frank failed to serve for the match against Fickey so the tie continues, poor Libietis. UVA up 3-0.

I guess he retired after all. Congrats to UVA for advancing to the Semis, expected though.

Libietis was still playing when I switched to Frank's match and both him and Styslinger were serving for the match at the same time.

Hope Libietis is ok to go for the individual championships. Really should have won in straights but he let Jenkins hang around then of course got injured. Talented player. Excited to see how he improves and it will be interesting to see when he goes pro.

And that's it, Kobelt d. Sarmiento 7-6 7-6

Very tight match. Some solid Isner-like stuff from Kobelt.

Re: 2013 NCAA Tournament: Round of 16 live video Thursday

With 4-time defending champ out, a new winner will be crowned....who will step up and take it.

Semis: UGA vs UVA, UCLA vs OSU

I'm hoping for a UVA-OSU final.

Great stuff yesterday. Unfortunately I was traveling so I wasn't able to watch.

Big match from Novikov to step up and beat Cunha 6-4 6-4. Cunha's first dual match loss of the season.

Even though he won, I kinda understand why he struggled so much in the futures. The longer the points, the higher the percentage of him committing silly unforced errors (especially off rally shots on the forehand side). Some of the misses were not even close to the baseline

Re: 2013 NCAA Tournament: Final Four set. A new champion will be crowned.

Novikov vs Rola will be a firecracker. Rola crushed Gomez 6-1 6-0 and Novikov overcame Cunha. That will be a crucial match in what will be a very close match between UCLA and Ohio State. UCLA is the favorite at 3,5 and 6 while Ohio State the favorite in doubles and court 2. The match will be won and lost at 1 and 4. McCarthy is showing a lot of steel lately and will probably out fight Mkrtchian at 4. That will leave #1 as the decider.

recap on my prediction:

Ohio State wins doubles
Kobelt beats Giron at 2
McCarthy beats Mkrtchian at 3

Puget beats Smith at 3
Thompson beats Diaz at 5
Sell beats Christ at 6

#1 the decider.
