    JT Brooksby is at the Futures tournament in Columbus, Ohio, at An Ohio State University. In first-round qualifying he dispatched Brett Forman 2 and 4. Forman played #1 singles for Michigan State last year. JT's next opponent is Samuel Philp, a Canadian who played college tennis at Mercer.

    Reese is up two breaks and leads 4-0 in his 3rd set. (6-7, 6-3 in earlier sets.) Chappell and Arias are no longer listed as the doubles opponent for Shropshire and Zhu. An alternate team has taken their spot. Another bit of tennis news: (Tweet from Parsa Nemati) 17-year-old Scot Jacob Fearnley (@fearnley2001) has verbally committed to @TCUMensTennis, and will join the Horned Frogs in the fall of 2019. Has an ITF juniors ranking of #46 and a UTR of 13.76. Has won 4 ITF Juniors singles titles and 6 ITF Juniors doubles titles. https://t.co/XeT28r2WiC

    Jenson (JT, according to Wiki) Brooksby is paired with Henry Craig (University of Denver alum) in the doubles tournament in Norman. They face Dubinski/Scaglia (of Oklahoma State) no earlier than 3:00 pm today. Nick Chappell and LSU alum Boris Arias are seeded second in the doubles tournament. I don't see them listed anywhere in today's order of play info. I assume they'll play tomorrow.

    Saw on twitter a bit ago that Alastair Gray is playing in the qualies at the Futures tournament in Waco. He beat Myles Martin 2 and 1 and faces (17-year-old?) Leighton Allen on Sunday. Alex Rybakov bested Colombian Alejandro Gonzalez 6-2, 7-6 in a first-round qualifying match in the ATP Challenger event in Las Vegas. Spaniard Roberto Ortega-Almedo Sunday. Trevor Johnson was also in Vegas, but lost in the first round to former Pepperdine player Alexander Sarkissian.

    I think Alastair Gray and Reese Stalder are lucky losers and are into the main doubles draw vs. the 3 seeds from South Alabama.

    Nick Chappell reached the quarterfinals in singles today at the Toronto Futures tournament by upsetting aggie Jordi Arconada, 6-2, 6-0. He and Charlie Emhardt (Valpo) also reached the semis in doubles. Thursday's singles opponent is Felix Corwin (Minnesota). Tomorrow's doubles opponent: Felix Corwin and Niki Takuto.

    While we've distracted by the US Open, Nick Chappell made it through the qualies to the main draw at the Futures tournament in Niagara, Canada. His first-round opponent, Alexios Halebian, retired at 4-4 in their first set today, so Nick moves on to face Canadian David Volfson, who plays for Cornell, in the round of 16 tomorrow.

    Two items from Twitter: Alex Rybakov lost his quarterfinal match today at the Oracle ITA National Summer Championships hosted by... TCU! Max Kurzban was also in the main singles draw but lost his round-of-16 match. Alex and Max teamed up for doubles play and may be playing their semifinal match right now. TCU 2019 recruit Jenson Brooksby won the USTA Boys' 18s National Championship in Kalamazoo and earned a wildcard entry into the US Open main draw.

    Nick Chappell and Trevor Johnson are on opposite sides of the net in the main doubles draw at the Edwardsville (Illinois) Futures. Nick and partner Julian Bradley (Ireland) are the 2-seed and took the first set 6-1. Trevor and Alex Knight (University of Michigan) are already down a break, 1-2, in the second set. Nick and Trevor are both competing in the main singles tounament as well, but today's singles matches were canceled. And, for the record, I'm no tennis expert. I got hooked on TCU tennis when I went to see them at the NCAA tournament in Athens, GA, in 2000, and now I have time in the summer to Google stuff.
