Re: Acc

I'll be there tomorrow.

Gotta get up at 8:30 to get there (why they start at 10am I don't know) but I'll try and be there for the first ball of doubles.

Re: Acc

FSU wins the doubles points with wins at 2 and 3.

Rachel Kahan is sick. If Duke can keep her at 5 next season with their outstanding recruiting class, they could win NCAA's.

Re: Acc

Kahan levels with an 0 and 1 victory.

Plotkin, Clayton, and Fahoum won their first sets, FSU up at 2 and 3.

Re: Acc

Clayton up a break at 6. Winning at 6 would be huge for us. Sargeant is a beast, so if Mary takes her down, that increases our odds significantly.

Re: Acc

Clayton up 4-0 in the second set. Fahoum up 3-0 in the second set. Plotkin dropped serve and is down 1-3 in second after winning the first. Liz...this has been a pattern all season. She wins the first set and goes down an early break in the second. Reka is down 1-2 in the second after losing the first. How is she struggling so much? I just don't believe Reka will lose if it comes right down to it. Hoping for wins from Nadine, Mary and Reka..GO DEVILS!

Re: Acc

Clayton wins 3 and 1, pulling Duke ahead.

Plotkin's opponent is starting to pull away in the second set...all these matches are tight.

Re: Acc

Fahoum goes from 3-0 to 3-5. Fail. Plotkin goes from 1-4 to 3-4 at least. Reka goes from 1-2 to 3-1...how does that work? Scoreboard fail. Anyway, Reka will win. We need Fahoum or Liz to win. Hoping Liz pulls through in straight sets...

Re: Acc

So scoreboard is really failing. Ellah won the second set 6-1. We are now in three three set matches (1,2,4), with Reka heading that way. Duke needs to win 2 of the 4. FSU needs to win 3 of the 4. Reka isn't going to lose. So Ellah, Nadine or Liz needs to come through for us...unfortunately, I'm not feeling super confident.

Re: Acc

Duke leads 3-2. Reka is still on court as is Nadine but she's serving to stay in the match. I'd be pretty surprised if reka lost. Hoping for a 4-3 victory. Really disappointing that Liz lost after leading 3-3 in the second set.

Re: Acc

FSU has gotten really hot. I would think with today's win, they also moved themselves into holding a regional tournament.

Re: Acc

North Carolina Tar Heels v. Miami Hurricanes

UNC takes dubs point

UNC scoreboard
miami scoreboard

Miami's seems more current

Miami keeping it competitive, each team wins 3 first sets.

Yeah it's just bizarre. It's pretty rare in any sport for a team to go from just above .500 on the season to 9 wins in a row, including three wins over top 4 teams...Nadine should have won that tiebreak, and I have absolutely no idea how Reka lost a match at 3 singles...

Re: Acc

Guys I'm so depressed. Losing 9-7 in a third set tiebreaker in a 4-3 decision...Reka losing...FSU is just a really bad match up for us I think. Oh well. I'm hoping next year brings better things.
