Let The Games Begin! Nationals Season Start This Weekend!


Tennis in the desert.  Not a bad place to win or lose.


Dallas has two representatives at Nationals this weekend.  The High Point/Le team at 4.0 will be at Rancho Mirage and the High Point/Bender team at 3.0 will be at Tucson.   The 5.0 men are also playing this weekend at Indian Wells with San Antonio/Godwin representing Texas.
In the 4.0 draw, Texas is in Flight 5 with Florida, Middle States and Midwest.  This could be a tough flight.  They will do well to just make it to Sunday.   If they make it to the semis, they will play the winner of Flight 7 consisting of Southern California, Missouri Valley, Eastern and Intermountain.  It’s going to be tough sledding all around for these guys.  Texas plays Florida in its first match bright and early on Friday morning.  That should tell us a lot about how the weekend will go.
In the 3.0 draw, Texas is in Flight 7 with Caribbean, Southern and Florida.  Wow, that has to be the flight of death.  All four of those teams are likely in the top six and I wouldn’t be surprised if Texas, Southern and Caribbean were in the top four.  That is just brutal.   Looks to me like the USTA gave Northern California (flight 5) a free pass to the semis.  Even more interesting, New England, Middle States, Southwest and Northern are all in one flight together.  What a gift.  Of course I know nothing about 3.0 so that could all be dead wrong.
At 5.0, there are only three flights with Texas playing Southern California, Missouri Valley, Southwest and Florida.  That’s going to be rough. 

Good luck to everyone but especially our Dallas representatives.

  1. With Tony having lost one of his better singles guys after cities, I wonder about his depth. He's got good doubles fire power but he runs the risk of the singles guys getting worn down if he makes it to Sunday.

    1. Tony Le has his fingers lined up and ready to go. We will see Aguilar and Tran in singles and Ajay as a back up. With Kemp and Nguyen and Arcaria,Delepaz and Tony they should be fine. I'm sure they are playing for a title Sunday

    4. Please no politics. I assume the person wishing ill will on Tony and Crew is joking. In any event, lets not wish ill will in the manner on anyone. I suspect if that actually happened it would sicken you.

  6. Ladies aren't tankers, only Tony's team?? You'll never get it!!

  7. Oh, the ladies definitely have their tankers...the good part is they are very easy to identify since they are likely playing mixed on one of Alan's teams...

  8. Dallas takes the first one 3-2. Looks like after getting three lines, maybe Victor Tran shut it down. Still very close.

    1. Bennett has been seen practicing his limp already. They can be proud when they win that trophy and cheat their way against the special needs participants. All the cheaters on that team are worthless and have usually had something drastic impact them during their lives that they need this to boost their self esteem.

  13. Dallas 8.0 mixed is getting blasted. Who's making these lineups? Are they trying?

    1. Dallas 8.0 was missing all their main horses-had only one 4.5 player and the rest were overmatched.

  14. High Point takes the flight! Semis (and finals?) tomorrow.

  15. I hope all the work Tony did to put his team together pays off. It would be a shame to come up a little short. Surprised by the line-up today, almost a fatal error.

  16. I hope it all comes down to Tony's match in the finals.

  18. 5-zip in the finals, all in straight sets.
