Congratulations 40+ 4.0 Champs... Dallas Brings Home another National Championship!
Keith Clark's 4.0 40+ team won a National Title at Indian Wells. Needless to say, Texas 4.0 did well this year. The two teams had some of the same faces but it was actually the lesser known names that came through. Scott Faris (whoever this is), dominated and will earn a much deserved promotion. Jacques Mbede (where does Clark recruit this guy?) will get the same. Both looked to have dominated in the finals.
In Doubles, Tony Le and Mike Pearson won a 3 setter. Mike Zacakary and Stephen Graham looked to win. They dropped a third set tiebreaker on the other line. It appears that they were closer to sweeping than losing. Congratulations and thanks for bring another title to Dallas!
After sectionals, I thought this was the strongest Texas was top to bottom at all levels. Texas won at 3.5 and 4.0 18s. They won 4.0 at 40s. They placed 4th at 4.5. All of this success means one thing; Texas will get punished in they ear end ratings by the computer. There will be a lot of people bumped that otherwise would not. It s time to just wait for the new ratings to emerge.
The fall season is wrapping up, Tri-Level is next and Mixed Nationals Season is now upon us. There is more to discuss than usual.
Once again, congratulations to Fretz/Clark for a National Championship. As we all know, Houston has got the better f us over the years. It is really nice to tip the scale back our way.
