Illini had a up and down season but it ended well with a Big Ten championship and NCAA Sweet Sixteen. Seems that there are lots of good recruits coming in for next year so it should be very interesting!

The Illini lose their top two players but have a great class coming in next year. It was ranked No. 6 in the country before they added 5-star Julian Childers so it may be even higher. Should be an interesting season.

Thanks for the updates, and go Illini! I used to love going to home matches at the U of I, and would love to see us get back to where we were during Craig Tiley's days.

The Illini guys have been pretty busy. A few of past (Ruben, Nevolo, DeHeart), present (Hoh, Abdelnour, Kopinski, Gosea) and future (Hiltzik, Page, Jesse, Bazarnik) have been involved in USTA events and Futures. Ruben Gonzales won the Indian Harbour Beach doubles event a couple weeks ago. Gosea won a USTA event in St Louis. Hiltzik won a wildcard into the Innisbrook event.
At Wimbledon, Kevin Anderson unfortunately lost in the 1st round of both the singles and mixed, but Rajeev Ram is still in the doubles tournament. He'll play a third round match on Monday.
