Brutal for Frank. Good luck to all the freshmen.

Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

Isn't Mitchell Frank the real number 1? I would say brutal for Libietis. Sad to see no Canadians make the draw.

Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

Frank has only lost 1 match this season. He played 3 for Virginia which is why he did not have the big ranked wins to get his ranking higher. He is definitely a top 8 player in the NCAA so it is really a terrible draw for Libietis. Big clash in styles between these two, it will be interesting.

Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

Kobelt needs to watch out for Saba. Saba plays well vs players like Kobelt, usually can grind them down and get them moving around the court. The winner of that match likely gets Novikov, so a loaded section.

It will be interesting to see how Jenkins does vs Wagland just a few days after Wagland beat Jenkins in the team semifinal.

Giron played great in the team event, knocking off Kobelt and Domijan. Let's see what he can do vs the #5 seed Bogaerts.

Pasha vs King will be good.

Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

I'll be there on the final day next Monday. I just so happen to be driving my brother down to Champaign Sunday night and discovered that's where the NCAAs are! $10 for men's and women's doubles and singles--what a deal.

"A tacit rhetorical assumption here is that you have very probably never heard of Michael Joyce of Brentwood, L.A... Nor of Vince Spadea nor Jonathan Stark...--all ranked in the world’s top one hundred at one point in 1995. Nor of Jeff Tarango, sixty-eight in the world, unless you remember his unfortunate psychotic breakdown in full public view during last year’s Wimbledon.

You are invited to try to imagine what it would be like to be among the hundred best in the world at something. At anything. I have tried to imagine; it’s hard."

Re: 2013 Individial Championship Tournament

I forgot all about Libietis' sprained ankle. I hope that he is okay to compete and that it doesn't bother him too much.
