Regional Players of the Week

Northeast D3tennis- Timmy Berg (Bates) d3tennisguy- Timmy Berg (Bates) Not much going on in the Northeast region this week, but Timmy Berg’s play was fantastic. He went 3-3 on their West coast swing, including an impressive win over Claremont #1, Alex Lane. If Berg becomes one of the best players in the NESCAC, Bates has…

Indoors Wrap-up

National Indoors concluded today with a dominant victory by Emory over Cruz. By the time I woke up, the match was already over, and it really wasn’t as close as the 7-2 score kind of indicates. The Eagles cruised through doubles. Though all of the matches were relatively close, it doesn’t seem like they were…

#17 CMU def. #16 Depauw 7-2

The box score is in the sidebar… As you can see, this match really wasn’t all that close. Depauw’s Pool C hopes are now on life support, and I think their only way into the tournament is to upset Kenyon in their conference championship. Given the Lords’ play this weekend, that’s probably not about to…

National Indoors Predictions: Day Three

I’m ready to go to bed. Cruz stunned everyone by beating Wash U. I think we can officially set aside the doomsday predictions for Slug tennis for at least two more years. Coach Parmelly did a great job pulling his guys together after a disappointing upset. The only danger for them heading into the final…

Kalamazoo def. Wisconsin-Whitewater 8-1 I’m not trying to diminish Kalamazoo’s win, but this was a classic let down match. Whitewater probably wasn’t used to having something to defend, and that’s exactly what they had to do against Zoo. Maybe they got nervous, or maybe they got cocky, thinking they would be able to beat Kalamazoo…

National Indoors Day 2: Running/RetroDiary

  12:00 noon: Check the scores from Indoors and Trinity has already beaten Chicago. That was anticlimactic. After such a brilliant fight yesterday, the Maroons laid an egg today. Maybe they can only get excited to play Wash U. Looking at their results from the past three years, they have played exactly like a team…

National Indoors Predictions: Day Two

Somehow, the four top seeds got through a very interesting first day of Indoors. Here’s the stat that blows my mind: in all four matches, the team that won two out of three doubles matches ended up losing. That’s ridiculous. Regardless, we’re left with the match ups most of us expected, so let’s get into…

#15 Redlands def. #26 Bates 7-2 Redlands beat Bates by a 7-2 score today. The only two matches Bates won were in 10-pointers, so I think it’s safe to say that this victory was quite comprehensive for the Bulldogs, much more convincing that Cruz’. The box score once again displays Redlands’ solid doubles and depth.…

National Indoors Day 1: Running/RetroDiary

2:57 CT: Chicago stunned everyone by taking two out of three doubles. It looked like Wash U was going to bounce back and dominate the singles, but Jan Stefanski, perhaps the only Maroon with any leadership ability at all, bounced back from a 1-6 first set to win, turning the tide in Chicago’s favor. Stefanski…
