Mid Level 4.0 and Mid Life Crisis Nationals 40+ Nationals



We are in our last weekend of Men's Nationals  Our very own 40+ 4.0 Dallas team represents us.  Fretz/Clark looks eerily similar to Le/High Point 18s sans Tony's young ringers.  Regardless, you have Tony, De La Paz, Newman/Voss, Arcaria and  Clark.  That looks like some pretty stout doubles.

In singles, Clark used Scott Faris (who?) and Jacques Mbede (Who?) in the sectionals finals.  Both easily handled Janek and Vu who are a couple of Freeman's front tine players.  There is Zackary for quality depth.  I can't imagine many people have this much 40s singles depth.

I am liking their chances but they are in a tough flight.  They have the always tough Caribbean and they get to start with them.  They follow that up with Eastern which is not a typical power section but they will have something.  On Saturday, they get Florida and I have to think Florida is better at 55+ but they usually have excellent players.  They finish with Midwest which is usually tough.  They don't have an easy go of it.

In the end, since I am a Dallas guy and I am picking Texas to win everything, I am picking them.  Their excellent doubles lines and great singles depth tell me they have a great chance.  Good Luck Boys!

  1. I imagine that Tony will somehow find his form that left him before and after 4.0 nationals.

  3. Dallas should win. Mbede and Faris are great singles players and Clark can rest one of them and put Zacry in against a weaker team. Tony will find his form but to all those complaining he is still a 4.0. Solid group of players but there are really no solid 4.5 or way out of level players on that roster. There are a lot of tankers but no one u can look at who is a guaranteed win

  4. hey, leave Tony alone. he is the best captain in Dallas history. He just doesnt play well at times. High 4.0 some and low 4.0 others. Obviously DTA doesnt think he is out of level

  8. Ryan McClanahan was DQ'd to 5.0 earlier this year and now he is on Tony Le's Tri-Level roster as a 3.5. How does this happen?
