The NC State women's tennis team was edged 7-0 by the No. 13 Miami Hurricanes on Sunday at the Curtis & Jacqueline Dail Outdoor Tennis Stadium.

Is that another of those words that means something different in America?

Another solid win for the Canes today. Sixth straight win, 10-2 now. They face Baylor on Saturday.

That is funny! However, it was Miami, so there may have been knives (edges) involved. JK Miami fans!

How about the Kentucky website:
No. 22 Kentucky Routs Mizzou (it actually says routes on the front page). It was a 4-2 match and Kentucky was down in the unfinished #5 match.

So, to me...a "rout" is 7-0 and being "edged" is 4-2 or 4-3.

However, the school's website usually try to shine the team in the best light!

A great win on Saturday for the Canes against No. 17 Baylor. The final score was 4-0, but if Bolivar had not taken her match, it could have gone down to three three-set matches. A very good win for the Canes.

The roller coaster ride of an expatriate college tennis fan. It ain't easy and can be pretty frustrating. the situation in college tennis right now is downright horrible and unacceptable. If they kept the scoreboard updates for football/basketball, there would be mass uprisings and American would cease to exist as we know it.

Re: Acc

Yes!!! it sounds all too familiar...the lengths we go through to find out the score or what is happening, especially when the team is playing on the road and I have to rely on twitter updates or worse no updates until long after the match is over!

It doesn't seem fair but its not like I feel I have a right to complain, knowing that tennis fans like me are a small minority and knowing tennis doesn't bring in the money that football and basketball does.

It would be strange, yet funny to imagine if one day, athletes decide to choose tennis over the big 3 sports. What it would be like if tennis rose to the same level in popularity, resulting to live television broadcasting of all games

IMHO, the answer is finding the right communication channel to the size of the event. College tennis will never be a regular on television, but online streaming will continue to improve, and will be better than television coverage has ever been.

I actually, like following a match on twitter.

But to improve twitter coverage it would be nice if the host school would be a suggested #hashtag for every match. So that instead of just following a teams' account, we could follow a #hashtag during an event and get 140's from several voices.

That's a great idea! I don't know how much of the older crowd are into tweeting updates, but definitely I'm sure the younger crowd would do this...

There are so many good ideas out there and I'm sure there are people/fans willing to make it work. A shame it is the way it is. Tennis deserves better.

Yes it does, but it's like fine wine, it takes a special palette to appreciate!

Sorry I can't keep up with all the rule changes. Are they now playing doubles last? Or is that just a Duke thing?

They do that for College Match Day, when it is featured/streamed on ESPN3. They're doing it in an effort to shorten matches for TV viewing. If the match is tied at 3-3 after singles, they play 10 point tiebreaks for doubles This happened for the first time in the Alabama/Florida match yesterday.

That is crazy. I guess it makes the singles matches much more crucial and puts greater pressure on them.

Re: Acc

Hopefully this will knock Duke out of the #1 spot. Some extremely impressive wins from Clemson. They won all of their singles matches in three sets.
