I'm sure in this match Jeff Dadamo (TAMU) who was leading, would have loved the opportunity to beat Blaz Rola (Ohio State) the No. 4 player in the country but he never had a chance because the match was abandoned!

No. 55 Jeff Dadamo(TAMU) led No.4 Blaz Rola (Ohio State) 7-6, 3-6, 2-1unfinished

They were Did Not Finish (DNF), not defaults, I believe. That's why it is 4-0.

Granted, it is a team game but it's also an individual game and if you're going to keep individual rankings, it is not fair to players to abandoned the matches before they are finished not to mention the time and money spent traveling to play the match. Just my opinion!

No I'm saying finish it out like most do it after the match has been decided.
