TCU Tennis 2018-19

Recommended Posts

Playing some of the very best tennis of his pro career, Nick Chappell walloped ex-Longhorn Lloyd Glasspool (ATP #473) 6-2, 6-0 this morning to WIN the Toronto Futures tournament, earning a big check and some major ATP points in the process.  This is HUGE for Nick, who usually has doubles success but has struggled in singles.  His earnings for the entire year so far have only been $3,000 or so - now, he's probably funded multiple more months on the pro circuit.  He had fallen to #1076 in the rankings, but will now undoubtedly move up.

After Cam Norrie's epic collapse on Friday when he squandered a match point and went on to lose a 5-set stunner to Karimov and allow the Uzbeks to tie the Davis Cup tie with Team GB, Cam stormed back today to clinch the tie with a dominating 6-2, 6-2, 6-0 W over last minute replacement Sanjar Fayziev this morning in Glasgow.  The #1 Uzbek, Denis Istomin couldn't play and Norrie took advantage and moved his all-time Davis Cup record to 2-2 with the clincher.  The Brits thus will remain in what will be the 18 team World Group going into next year's revamped format.  They will be seeded for a tie in February and, if they advance, play in the new 2-week Davis Cup finals extravaganza in the fall.  For Cam, winning the clincher before a home crowd in Glasgow was especially sweet with his Dad there and with the measure of redemption after Friday's collapse.

Nick Chappell's Toronto W moved him up to #1002 in the ATP rankings.  It appears that he is taking this week off and is not at Laguna Niguel for the Futures tour in California.  But Reese Stalder is there and made it to the 2nd round of the qualies over the weekend where he lost to eventual qualifier Brazilian Alessandro Damiano Ventre 6-1, 1-6, 1-6.  Some of the team was apparently at the Midland Invitational, but other than the fact that a Utah State player won the singles title, I can't find any other information about it on the web.
