Where is spencer papa!? Since his strong Latin American swing showing on ITF circuit, he has been kind of slowing down, it seems. Great win for Farren, way to come back from the injury

Spencer is hopeless outside of clay, it seems. Great win for the boys.

One correction--despite what his ITF profile says, Donaldson is not left-handed.

SapELee, what do you think the boys chances are at beating Australia?
I think Kozlov has the ability to beat whoever Australia plays at #2. But I really don't see Rubin beating Kokkinakis at this time. So in my opinion our best chance is a win at 2 and doubles, which we might be too physically exhausted to win after so many 3 set doubles matches this week.

Not very good. Like you said, the best scenario is a win @ 2 and doubles. But Stefan has been playing a lot, he's kinda be exhausted. I'm afraid all the three-set doubles matches will catch up to them.

USA boys team in trouble. Kozlov loses 6-1 3-6 5-7
He was up 5-2 in the third and served for it twice before his Australian opponent came all the way back. That's definitely going to be a tough one fore him to swallow.

Pity that! Kozlov is a pretty good closer , in general.

Yup. Tough one, Stefan. Happens to the best of them. After that no chance for Noah.

Noah lost 3 & 2. His opponent was just too tough (and probably a lot bigger than him)
But they played pretty well all week, getting 3 wins a piece in singles of round robin. A good experience in general.

On a side note, Francis Tiafoe almost beat Quinzi for a second time in team events this year. Maybe there's something in his game that gives Quinzi a hard time that most people just don't have.

Edit: I meant France's Tatlot... can't believe I got them confused.

Do you mean Tatlot?

Good try . Despite the loss, I'm very pleased with the effort especially with Stefan's. Overall, I'm pleased with the 98' boys this year and will not be surprised if next year's team consists of all players from this class.

I bet Wiersholm would feel pretty left out and betrayed.
