First day matches lasted until almost 10pm tonight all based on a poor decision not to start the matches earlier. Many of the teams weren't able to attend the Big Ten banquet because they were still playing tennis!
They actually started at 11:15ish, so just over an hour later. It was sprinkling and misting so they weren't sure if play was feasible outside (later, the weather was better, but it was too late). PSU and OSU then had a 5 hour battle, and they were using 3 courts for that and 3 courts for PU and MSU. After PU won rather quickly, they put the remaining 2 matches of PSU-OSU and it was just a battle, full of drama, including PSU's number 4 throwing her racquet at the OSU coach. PSU's number 2 was absolutely crazy and after the match couldn't feel her hands, I don't know if she shocked herself to that. Enough of a report, unless you have questions about any matches at Big Tens, but all matches were long and just went way into the night. It's how the weather went unfortunately.
