    Robinson out for the season

    And the hits just keep coming.

    Turpin arrested

    This is awful news but I'll withhold final judgment until we learn what happened. I assume he'll be suspended though.

    Pepys' diaries were interesting because it was exciting times and the U.K. was on top of the world. You can't help it if the Frogs are playing so poorly that it's not so exciting this year although we're 3-4 and 43rd and our situation isn't quite as bad as Anne Frank's was.

    Week 8 DUSHEE (2018)

    Well, I read it every week. 43rd. Hmmm. Anne Frank's diary wasn't that sad because she didn't know what was going to ultimately happen to her. J

    Sad news in Waco as Sander and Reese lose to the evil Longhorns Sigsgaard and Scott 6-4, 0-6, 5-10 in the semis of the ITA Texas Regionals. But a chance for redemption will now occur as Bertus Kruger takes on Sigsgaard in singles - hopefully, Sigsgaard is tired out from the grueling doubles match.

    Baie Geluk Bertus!! Bokke Bokke Bokke! Kruger's in the semis in singles and Stalder/Jong in doubles! Go Frogs!

    Other than Cam losing, it's good news for the Frogs so far on this busy Sunday. Bertus Kruger beat Longhorn Chih Chi Huang 6-3, 7-5 at the ITA Texas Regionals in Waco and has advanced to the quarters where he will face another Longhorn - Harrison Scott. Ali Gray beat Longhorn recruit Leighton Allen 6-3, 7-6 (7-5) in the qualies at the first Waco Futures tourney and has advanced to the 3rd round where he will play Jonathan Chang (ATP #1393). If he wins that, he'll be into the main draw. And Alex Rybakov has just started against Ortega-Olmedo at the Vegas Challenger and it's 2-3 in the first set. 2-4. Ouch. As soon as I start following the match, Rybo goes down a break. 3-4. Alex is ranked #525 - Ortega-Olmedo is #315. 4-all! Even on serve! Rybo has earned $11,315 this season; clearly his best year ever. Is it enough to go pro full-time? Probably not. 5-4! Alex has 63 current ATP points. 5-all. The Spaniard holds. 6-5! One more game and Alexandrovich will take the set. 6-all. Into the breaker for the first set. Aw mman. 6-7. Alex loses the first set. 2-all in the 2nd. 2-3. Rybo goes down a break. 3-3. Alex breaks back and it's even. 4-5. (sigh) Rybo falls 6-7, 4-6 and goes out early in a Challenger yet again. De ja vu. (I think he should be playing and winning Futures).

    Cam Norrie lost in three sets to Herbert in Vienna this morning, so he's out of the qualies in Europe this week. But in Waco, Reese Stalder and Sander Jong beat the Sheehy Brothers from Abilene Christian and have advanced to the semis in the ITA Texas Regionals doubles competition. I think they will play Christian Sigsgaard and Harrison Scott from Texas today (although the site isn't clear and it might be the Rice team). Later today will be Kruger v. Huang, Gray v. Allen and Rybakov v. Ortega-Olmedo.

    Week 8

    I think at least to 4th - behind Bama, Clemson and Notre Dame. But they should fall much further - there are 6 unbeatens; 3 in the AAC. And losing to 4-3 Purdue isn't all that impressive. Wow - Purdue scores again!

    So that's where they were! Ali's opponent - Leighton Allen - is a HS junior in Austin and is a Longhorn commit. Rybo's opponent - Ortega-Olmedo - is 7th seeded in the Vegas Challenger qualies and has an ATP rank of #316. And that's not all for the Frogs on this busy weekend. Cam Norrie is in the qualies at the Vienna Open and today he beat Canadian Peter Polansky 2 and 1 in the first round. Early tomorrow, he will face 27-year old Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert, who is a Davis Cupper and has an ATP rank of #51. So, Kruger, Gray, Rybo and Norrie will all be in action tomorrow at various levels of tennis at multiple worldwide venues.

    Out of the Frogs' 3 chances to have a player make it to the quarters at the ITA Texas Regionals in Waco, only Bertus Kruger succeeded today by beating Baylor's Will Little 6-1, 3-6, 7-5. Roldan lost to Baylor's Johannes Schretter 1 and 2 and Reese Stalder won the first set against Tech's Valiev but fell apart in the next two and lost 6-4, 0-6, 2-6. Kruger will next play Texas' Chih chi Huang (and it's not pronounced the way Les Nessman would do it on WKRP). In actual singles competition, this makes the Frogs' record 6-2, which isn't bad, especially considering that Rybo and Ali aren't there. And Kruger still has a chance to advance.

    He didn't play, but I have no idea why. Today was a busy day, though, for the other Frogs that did play. After beating Delgado , Bertus Kruger followed that with a 2nd round 0 and 2 W over Blaise Fagan of SMU, And Eduardo Roldan followed his W over SMU's Buhelos with a 5-7, 6-4, 6-0 W over Nicholas Mayr of Lamar. And Reese Stalder, after his first round bye, got a W over UTA's Mauricio del Rio with a score of 4-6, 6-0, 6-2. So all three have advanced to the 3rd round (the Round of 32) and are still alive in the main draw of the singles. This is really good news because these aren't the Frogs' top players and it shows that we're developing some depth. In doubles, Kruger/Roldan are set to play Loyd/Kohrs of UTRGV and Stalder/Jong are scheduled to play the Sheehy brothers (Josh and Jonathan) from ACU. In singles (presumably tomorrow), Kruger is now scheduled to play Will Little from Baylor, Roldan will face Johannes Schretter, also from Baylor, and Stalder will play Iljiz Valiev, from Tech. This is definitely a step up in competition for all three against Big12 rivals who we will likely face later this year. Kruger and Roldan will clearly be underdogs; Stalder's match is probably relatively even.

    The ITA Texas Regionals are underway in Waco and the first results are in. Sander Jong lost to Joao Ceolin of UTSA by default and Bertus Kruger beat Joaquin DelGado of ACU 1 and 0. Reese Stalder, who is seeded 11th, got a bye into Round 2 and Eduardo Roldan is scheduled to play Andrew Buhelos of SMU later. In doubles, Stalder and Jong got a bye in the first round and will play Jake Davidson and Samuel de Felipe Garcia of UTRGV in the Round of 64. And Kruger and Roldan are scheduled to play Zane Kohrs and Michael Loyd of UTRGV in the first round later today. Neither Alex Rybakov nor Alastair Gray (nor Max Kurzban or Luc Fomba) are in either draw so I'm guessing they aren't there and are either resting or intend to try pro tourneys instead.
