5.0+ Cities... The Heavyweights
I will write about QT when the DTA gets the flights out. I was hoping they would get on the stick but I should have known they wouldn't. With that said, I will start with 5.0+.
In 5.0+, it is 3 vs 2 and the winner play 1. In the first match, it is Lakes/Jannasch vs Village/Perkison. Lakes won the first matchup 3-2. Loren Collins easily won his singles match and Bergh/Gonzales beat Jooste/Arrent in a third set TB. Also, Welwood/Vejman beat McCoy/Carona in three too. I see Collins continuing his dominance and I think Perkison gets a doubles line.
That makes it Perkison vs undefeated TBar/Bartzen. Usually, Bartzen is really solid to win this line but I think Collins is better. He is significantly better too. While TBar won 2-1 Collins didn't play. am going to go with my early season prediction and Perkison win 2-1 as Collins and a doubles line win.
It is a shame as all three teams are tremendous. Many years, any one of these three teams would advance to sectionals and do well. It is unfortunate that all three are out of Dallas. I could be all wrong and any could win but that is my best guess. It should be some pretty good tennis.
I thought about discussing 3.0 as I don't think they have a city championship at all. I opted to look and the only name I know, High Point/Bender. I guess he will win. I did notice his team lost 1 flight play match and then noticed there was a DQ. It wasn't a Bender player but a JCC player. Seeing that is why I am going to discuss the DQs.
The guy that got DQ'd is someone I have absolutely no idea who he is from JCC. I guess he got DQ'd on strikes. Yet, his total 2015 record is 7-3. He had some big wins but he lost in pretty bad fashion too. He also had several 3 set wins. It doesn't look like the makings of a DQ. I really don't understand the computer...
