  1. Tomas Jirousek just defeated Belgian Tom Pisane 6-1, 7-6(2) in his second-round ITF tornament match in Zlatibor, Serbia. Nick and The Widow are playing now in Fayetteville. Nick took the first set 6-1.
  2. Nick is on the acceptance list for the Fayetteville ITF tourney, as is Reese Stalder. If they haven't withdrawn, they're in the main draw. Former Frog Eduardo Nava is in the qualies there.
  3. Stopped into a pub for lunch today and noticed Alex Young on the teevee as he got the start today vs. the Mets. He left the game after giving up a grand slam that made it 6-0 Mets. Five of those runs were unearned due to an error by Nick Ahmed, who went to high school in the town where I live now and where I'm (no longer) watching the game.
  4. ... we also follow the women's team (somewhat)... I just saw on the Twitter that TCU women's team member Ellie Douglas is into the quarterfinals at the Futures tourney in Redding, CA, after her opponent retired. Ms. Douglas made the main draw as a lucky loser and then promptly knocked off the tournament 7-seed, Quinn Gleason (Notre Dame, pro for a few years now).
  5. Marshall Newhouse signed with the Patriots, in part to fill in while Marcus Cannon is out with an injury.
  6. Another site is showing that Nick is in Champaign, IL for the Futures tournament. He's seeded 3rd in the main draw. Reese Stalder is in the Champaign qualifying tourney. He had a first-round bye and is scheduled to play this afternoon.
  7. Nick Chappell was upset by Christian Langmo (Miami Hurricane) today in the ITF tournament in Cancun. Commit Tomas Jirousek is apparently not yet on campus, as he's reached the semis in the ITF tournament in Bratislava, Slovakia. He's scheduled to play Russian Kirill Kivattsev in a few hours.
  8. Alastair Gray lost in the first round to Charlie Broom (GBR, Dartmouth) in Chiswick this morning, 4-6, 6-2, 3-6. More unhappy news from Novi Sad, as Czech Tomas Jirousek also lost in his first-round match. Tadeas Paroulek has just started his match.
  9. Brandon Finnegan has made two relief appearances for the AA Chattanooga Lookouts in the last week. Three innings, no runs, two hits, one walk, three strikeouts.
  10. Alastair Gray and Jacob Fearnley are at the ITF tournament in Roehampton. Both are in the qualifying tournament. Ali will face Michael Shaw later today, and Jacob is playing Barnaby Smith (texas a&m) now. Jacob won the first set 6-4, but is down a break at 4-5 in the second. Jacob won his match 6-4, 4-6, 10-6, in an upset of the qualifier 7-seed. He needs one more win to reach the main draw.
  11. Cam Norrie is playing Australian Jordan Thompson in the Atlanta Open right now. Cam took the first set 7-6 (3), but just dropped the second set 4-6. Thompson has an ATP ranking of 43, which is his career high, and he's the tournament 7-seed. Cam's ranking has slipped to 54. Thompson knocked Norrie out of the Miami Open back in March.
  12. Rybo and Bangoura got past Dempster and Lovett, 7-5, 4-6, 10-7, and face Brits Jack Findel-Hawkins (North Florida) and Mark Whitehouse (Imperial College London) tomorrow. Alex's singles opponent will be Preston Touliatos (Tennessee). Tadeas Paroulek lost to Melnic today and the drawsheet shows that the opponent of the doubles tandem of Paroulek and Jirousek advanced via walkover, so we've run out of Czechs in Piestany.
