    So it's on to the 3rd set between Norrie and Millman in Rome! 0-1 as Millman holds. 1-2. 2-all. Cam gets the break at love and takes a 3-2 lead! 4-2! All Cam needs now is to serve it out. 4-3. 5-3. 5-4. Now all Cam needs is to hold one more time to advance. Cam evens the all-time series with Millman with a 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 win to advance to the 2nd round of the main draw at Rome!

    The times for Thursday's matches have been announced - TCU v. The Evil Empire is scheduled to be the 2nd match of the day and is listed to start at 1:00 p.m. (CDT), following the Cavs v. the Deacs in an all-ACC quarter. Some annoying guy by the name of Chris Del Conte is already tweeting about it - man, that guy is really starting to get on my nerves. Who does he think he is??!! The Epitome of Evil is 26-3 on the season; 5-0 in the Big12 (not counting their L to Baylor in the tourney finals), 16-1 at home, 6-0 away (including at Ft. Worth) but only 4-2 on neutral courts. They really haven't ventured away from Austin all that much. They have W's over just about everyone, including Mississippi, SMU, Washington, Miami, UTSA, A&M-CC, North Carolina, Tulsa, Arkansas, Illinois, USC, Incarnate Word, Georgia, N.C. State, Rice, Ohio State, Columbia, Tech, Baylor, TCU, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma (again), Tennessee Tech, USF and Cal. Their only losses were to Ohio State (indoors at Chicago which they avenged in Austin albeit the Buckeyes were Wolf-less), USC (at home but they had beaten the Trojans in Chicago) and Baylor (at Lawrence in the Big 12 tourney but they had beaten the Bears in the regular season). They've only lost 1 point (to USF) in the entire NCAA tourney, cruising through Tennessee Tech like they were tissue paper, USF and Cal. They are extremely good and hot. We know them well - their stars are #7 Christian Sigsgaard (who shared the Big 12 Player of the Year honor with Rybo)(Denmark), #12 Yuya Ito (Japan), #80 Leonardo Telles (Brazil), #55 Harrison Scott (Canada), Colin Markes (Austin) and Rodrigo Banzer (Bolivia). Their doubles line-up is #5 Scott/Sigsgaard, Markes/Telles and Chih Chi Huang (Canada)/Ito. Their interim coach is Bruce Berque - scroll back to read how he got the job. When he was head coach at Michigan, he recruited the Camster but ruthlessly did not inform Cam about how frickin cold Michigan gets in the winter. They are the Big 12 regular season champs and won the Big 12 tourney last year. They're ranked and seeded #2 but have been #1 during the season. To beat them will take a Herculean effort and would be magical and soporific. With this morning's W, Cam Norrie has qualified for the main draw in Roma.

    And we're back! Rybo has evened his set at 3-all; Gray 2-4; Stalder 2-3; Kruger 3-all; Fomba 3-2; Jong 2-3. Well, now they're showing Rybo down 1-4; Gray 2-4; Stalder 2-3; Kruger 3-all; Fomba 3-2; and Jong 2-3. And Roditi is saying we'll start at 5:00 p.m. Thanks MSU scorer for giving me false hope! Now they've truly re-started. Rybo 1-5; Gray 3-4; Stalder 3-4; Kruger 3-all; Fomba 3-all; Jong 2-4. We've dug a huge hole in singles and need to change the mo. Rybo falls 1-6; Gray 3-4; Stalder 3-4; Kruger 3-4; Fomba 4-3; Jong 2-5. Not looking good - the rain delay seems to have energized them and not us. Rybo broken in game 1 of his 2nd; Gray 5-4!; Stalder falls 3-6; Kruger 4-all; Fomba 4-3; Jong falls 2-6. We've lost 3 first sets in singles. C'mon guys! Ohio State and Virginia have advanced.

Rybakov 1-2 in his 2nd; Gray 6-5; Stalder 0-2 in his 2nd; Kruger 5-all; Fomba 5-all; Jong 1-all in his 2nd. In theory, we're still in this, but...

    Really great article by John Henry about ex-TCU DE Chad McCarty and his run for FW school board Place 2. After he graduated TCU with his master's degree in education administration, he worked his way up to become principal at his former HS, Eastern Hills. After four years working there, he quit to begin a business with two other school administrators serving the kids he saw were falling through the cracks. They are providing work-for-pay for at-risk students while they learn a trade and earn a diploma through the group's automotive repair business. These kids have responsibilities as wage earners in their homes and many were skipping school to work in legitimate jobs, or finding other ways to make money illegally. AutoDuco, an automotive maintenance and repair shop in Mansfield, is designed to have four high school age apprentices assigned to each technician. While they’re learning a trade and income, they’re also working on their high school diploma through an internet-based home-school program. The school district did offer a similar program, but not for the kids most vulnerable. That is, those not eligible for the programs because of attendance or behavioral issues. “We try to hire young people that are having a tough time getting a foothold in society,” McCarty said. “We were tired, myself and my business partners … we got tired of kicking out the same kids. All of them had the same answers as to why they were doing things: ‘We need to find a way to make some money.’” If you live on the east side of FW and can vote in the Place 2 school board election, perhaps you should consider our Frog candidate. CGP would vote for him: “I would definitely back him,” said Patterson, who doesn’t live within Place 2’s east-side boundaries. “I like honest people. He’s an honest person who works hard. He believes in kids. For me, those three things are all of the qualities that would be great for someone running for school board.” https://www.pressboxdfw.com/tcu-ex-mccarty-now-trying-to-force-school-board-turnover/

    Well, Coric has started the match, but Norrie apparently isn't there, because Cam is down 0-3 early, down 2 breaks. 0-4 (at love). This is about as bad as it could be. Were Facundo and Cam out partying last night? 1-4. Cam gets on the board at love, but Coric might be cheesing. 1-5. 2-5. Cam appears to have awakened but it's far too late for this set. Norrie falls 2-6 in only 27 minutes. 1-love in the 2nd. Cam's first lead. 1-all. 1-2. Cam gets broken (sigh). 1-3. 1-4. Yet another break... 1-5. This is awful, abysmal and abominable. 2-5. Cam falls 2-6, 2-6. Thankfully, that's over...
