    Well, two matches. UNC would have to win their semifinal match.

    So, one Duke win and one UNC win.

    Beating OU is going to be very difficult. They're seeded second on merit. Got to get that doubles point.

    That gives me some confidence. We lost in a breaker in one doubles match, 7-5 in the other, and crushed them 6-2 in the third one. In singles, we lost three close matches, destroyed them in #1 singles and were up in the unfinished match. Never know how indicative a past meeting is for a future meeting, but clearly that match could have gone either way and now we have some familiarity (so do they admittedly).

    And Texas win!

    The matches were all moved indoors because of rain.

    And apparently May is just like in March, next game starts in 30 minutes. Ha. (And will be late from advertised time, by about an hour)

    Split the first 2 dubs and 5 all at #2 to decide the doubles point. Come on Duke.

    Down to Eliza Omirou and she is trailing in the 3rd set 5-0. All tied at 3-3 with Oklahoma,unfortunately momentum is swinging to Emma Staker of Oklahoma. Will take an incredible comeback to get the win. Texas Oklahoma final is quite likely. Valiant effort by Duke,but just not enough to get the W.

    Losing the doubles point in that last 7-5 set was costly in the end unfortunately. That was the difference. Still, great season!

    Playing indoors due to weather certainly changes things (for both teams obviously, no idea who is better suited for it based on personel).

    This really shows how important that doubles point is. It is decided so quickly (only one set for each matchup) that it can seem almost arbitrary. But that point seems to determine the outcome in many matches, especially at this level when both teams are talented. In the end, this match came down to just a few points.

    Singles and doubles draws are out. Singles starts tomorrow. Chloe Beck plays a gal from Cal at 7:00pm. She and Georgia Drummy were slated to be 9-16 seeds. But I canít find Georgia in the draw anywhere. Maybe she is there and I just canít find her.

    Navarro from UVA is the #1 seed and doesnít have a 9-16 seed in her part of the draw. Makes me think Georgia dropped out or something. But she is listed in the doubles draw. Hmmmm

    Calling Jim Sumner. Any idea what is going on?

    I also thought I saw Georgiaís name in the draw yesterday when I checked the list, but it isnít there now for singles. Odd.

    As Jim S pointed out above, Chloe lost in straight sets in the second round. Georgia not only disappeared from the singles draw, but now she and Karolina Berankova are no where to be found in the doubles draw, which started today. Injury, I am guessing. Great season for the women's team, was a fun ride the last month.
