I love the story, and thanks, 94duke, for the timely post.
I do, however, have two dumb questions about college team tennis matches:
1. How do they keep score? I see Duke was 3-0 in doubles and 3-0 in singles (w/ three matches "unifinished"). How does that become 4-0?
2. Why don't they finish the matches? Surely it would be satisfying to the players to play until the end. OK, if it's all over and the sets are 1-1, then play some kind of tiebreaker. It would make the individual players' records more meaningful.
I am familiar with men's college from the old days; I saw Stan Smith and Bob Lutz play in the NCAAs in San Antonio several decades ago. The team matches in that era always played to a completion.
