ABOUT COLLEGE TENNIS



GENERAL & SCORING: A team's best 6 singles players play in the teams' singles line-up. The top 3 doubles players/teams play in a team's doubles line-up. The objective of college tennis dual matches is to get to 4 points first, out of a possible 7. A point is awarded for every singles win a player in the team's top 6 records, and 1 point is awarded in the 3 doubles matches, to whomever wins 2 out of 3 or all doubles matches. Players are allowed to play both singles and doubles, because they are played at separate times.



RANKINGS: Not only are teams ranked, but individual players are ranked as well, by the ITA- Intercollegiate Tennis Association. The ITA ranks the top 75 teams, the top 125 singles players, and the top 90 doubles teams are ranked. Rankings are updated usually every week. Strength of schedule, RPI, and Win-loss record is calculated in all of it.



Tournaments: The first MAIN tournament of the year is the ITA National Indoors. The ITA National Indoors takes place in the beginning of the season, late January-early February. The ITA National Indoors takes a few of the best teams in the nation to play for a national championship title. Individual singles, doubles, and team play is included in this. The ITA National Indoors gives teams chances to beat the best of the best teams. The Virginia Cavaliers (#3 year-end ranking) won the ITA National Indoors this past year (2010).



Conference tournaments take place every year at the end of every team's conference regular season play. Conference tournaments are important because it is the final say for teams to try to get into the NCAA Tournament. If a team wins their conference tournament, they receive an automatic bid to play in the NCAA tournament. Conference tournaments include all teams in the conference, regardless of rank. Seeds are based on how teams performed in the conference throughout the regular season.



The NCAA Tournament is the most prestigious tournament a team can win. It takes place at the very end of the year in every division. The team tournament is played first, followed by individual singles (the best 64 singles players) and the doubles tournament (the best 64 doubles teams). NCAA tournament selections are given to X amount of conference tournament champions (30-35) and the remaining number of spots left are at-large bids, given to the best remaining teams that did not win their conference tournament.

We will have to really grind out posts in the offseason so we can have hope for a forum in the season.

So Jarmaine Jenkins played at Clemson a few years ago, so where does his brother Jarmere decide to plat college tennis? Virginia!:rolleyes:

Clemson's best recruit is Zach Rigsby from Simpsonville,SC. I have seen him play a few times, once against my former high school's team. The #1 for my hs (who is ranked in the 20's in SC). Played the absolute match of his life but still lost to Rigsby 7-6(0) 6-1.

Well I looked at your draw for a Scott from NC. I saw one and thought well that must be Ozone.

In SC there are very good players in the 14's such as Hunter Harrington from Spartanburg, Brent Lett from Elgin (made R of 16 in Macon tourney), Austin Heinz from Daniel Island who made the round of 16 in your tournament in Macon.

I don't know as much about the 14's as the 18's but SC has some solid players for a state with not as much population. (That's true in every sport really, look at football)

The 2 most promising players from SC are:

1. Christopher Cox from Myrtle Beach (won the state 18's title even though he is eligible for the 16's and advanced to the quarters in Little Rock 18's southern tourney).

2. Cal Hilsman from Spartanburg (commited to Clemson. Made the semifinals of the 18's southern tournament in Little Rock.)

So there's my SC recap Ozone. :)

Yeah, very true. SC is one of the best states in the southern section for junior tennis. I split sets with Heinz earlier this year in our only meeting. I wouldnt call him a pusher, but he has more of a defensive game(He also got a very easy draw in Macon, playing a seed far worse than mine). Brent Lett is a very good player, never played him.

And of course SC has the #1 14 and under kid in the nation. I think he may just have turned 15 however.

No, John Richmond from Pawley's Island. He was number 1 in the nation in 14s but hes 15 now.
