    Kovacevic, Brown, Montsi and Zeke all played in the main draw at the ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa. Kovacevic was defeated in the round of 16 today. Still, I'm pretty impressed with all four of them. I think those 4 are locked into the starting lineup, along with Budic. Would like...

    Thank you for the info! Any details on what happened with Keenan? I would have loved to be in Cinci cheering against Wolf and McNally! Coaching staff still feels like Ohio State is the favorite in the Big Ten even with all the departures?

    Today it is Kova's turn to take on Mayo. Also, an intriguing match just ended between Sipho and Gui (two guys I hope make big contributions next season). Gui wound up winning 7-6 (4), 1-6, 10-8.

    Missed out on Alex Lee, but Hunter Heck (blue chip in next year's class) has verbally committed. https://www.tennisrecruiting.net/player.asp?id=749776

    I was talking about next season. JJ Wolf has announced that he is turning pro. From what I heard, Kobelt will not be back either. Illini men will have everyone back (except for Mayo). So next season is definitely a big chance to win the conference.

    Next year will be a big year for the men considering that Ohio State is losing 4 starters (JJ Wolf, Martin Joyce, Alex Kobelt and Hunter Tubert). Ohio State will reload quickly, but this is definitely our chance to jump ahead of them.

    Even more surprising is that Mayo transferred to Loyola Marymount University (8-15 record last year). I don't know if there is more to the story, but it seems like he wanted to move closer to home. He will likely play #1 or #2 singles and #1 doubles for them next season. In my opinion, Aidan...

    Can coach Small make subs on a daily basis or is Baumgarten out for the entire regional?

    2 things - 1) Was anyone at the match vs. Ohio State? I followed along on my phone as best I could, but I would like to hear about it from those that attended in person. 2) Caleb is transferring to SMU. Anyone know the details behind that situation? Seems like he was just playing #1 doubles...

    Can someone explain to me why tOSU has been locked in as a 9 seed for what seems to be forever? Is it simply because they have a 16-9 overall record? I'm looking at their schedule, and I only see a few quality wins (@CIN, vs MINN, vs Bucknell by 2 points, @NEB, @IND). Why schedule a tough...

    The men's team was able to pull off a very nice road win at Notre Dame! Anyone know what has been happening with Alex Brown? He had a very nice fall season, but he seems to be struggling at #1 singles recently. Not sure if his game is off or if he is dealing with injuries? Also, is anyone...
