5.0 and 4.0 Updates


5.0 playoffs will be the second place and third place teams from flight play meeting each other for the right to play the flight winner.  At this point, both T Bar/Bartzen and Prestonwood/Perkison remain undefeated.  Greenhill/Vahdat is at 5-1 and Lakes/Jannasch is at 4-2.  T Bar still has to play Prestonwood but their other two matches are bottom feeders.  Prestonwood has the T Bar tilt but they also still have to play SpringPark and Lakes so they need to stay sharp or they could go from undefeated to completely missing the playoffs.  SpringPark has the Prestonwood match and two lower end teams remaining, while Lakes still has to play Prestonwood and one more loss could leave them on the outside looking in.  Interestingly, the Royal Oaks/Stitt team started the season with five straight defaulted matches then they actually played Greenhill and lost 0-3.  How they were allowed to keep playing after five defaulted matches I do not know.

4.0 playoffs have the four flight winners headed straight to city playoffs.  QT will be comprised of four second place finishers and the two best third place finishers unless the fall wild card is used.  With McKinney/Kanchi holding the wild card, it is unlikely it will be needed.  The six QT contenders will be split into two flights of round robin and both flight winners will advance to cities.

Flight A – always the cream of the crop, an unexpected loss by High Point/Somabut has left them in a virtual dead heat with McKinney/Kanhci and High Point holding only a one line lead at this point.  Both teams could likely sweep the rest of the season if they really wanted to and HP has the head to head tie breaker.  Third place has Royal Oaks/Templeton and Eldorado/Browning tied at 4-2.  Eldorado has the far easier finish but they do still play each other so either could make it.

Flight B – Huffines/Ratcliffe has remained undefeated thus far, being chased by two 5-1 teams in Brookhaven/Bartlett and Lakes/Reifsnyder.  Huffines has already beaten them both so they should close out the flight.  Brookhaven and Lakes finish the season playing each other so their fate is in their own hands.  As importantly, with only one loss apiece so far, both have a shot at the third place advancement slot.

Flight C – Huffines has another undefeated flight leader in the Jayaram team.  These guys have been close a number of years and never closed the deal so maybe this is their year to advance.  They have two tough matches left versus Hackberry/Myers and Canyon Creek/Patterson.  Two 5-1 teams vie for the playoffs as well in Greenhill/Ohl and Hackberry/Myers.  Greenhill currently leads in the tie breakers and has a little easier finishing schedule.

Flight D – by far the tightest flight at this point, we have four teams sitting with one loss; McKinney/Bazan, Garland/Sisk, JCC/Schachter and Oak Creek/Iyer.  Garland/Sisk still has a slight mathematical lead but there are some big matches left for everyone.  Garland still has to play JCC and 3-3 Gleneagles; McKinney still has JCC and Gleneagles; JCC has the toughest finish with Garland and McKinney both yet to play; and Oak Creek finishes with the three last place teams in the flight, all with only one win a piece.  That leaves Oak Creek with the best possible shot at taking the third place QT spot because they could finish as the only one loss third place team.

  1. Royal Oaks/Stitt actually played some of their earlier matches then started defaulting all lines. I believe league admin went back and changed all of their results to defaults so that it impacts all teams the same, just hasn't done that with the most recent match. Who knows how that impacts NTRP ratings for matches that were completed but now possibly erased from the system.

  2. Speaking of erasing 5.0's from the system it is awesome that Kelley can't play DTA tennis until 2017!!!! Way to go DTA!

  4. Have you seen Kelley's mixed 8.0 team...I don't think they really need him much.

  5. I'm pretty sure they need him. The 4.5 men are hacks, especially Sam Huynh.

  7. Murray,
    Are you sure that in 4.0 the top two teams from the QT advance to City? I think the captains were told that only one advances and that City would be a one flight round robin of 5 teams.

  8. I believe it depends on where the QT team ends up. If they are in QT then it two teams go.

  11. Can anyone explain the tiebreaker system? I.e. when it's between two teams does head to head matter, or is individual matches won the first tiebreaker?

    ReplyDelete
  12. I hope Kelly gets his ass kicked or gets hurt! The thought of him
    Going to another nationals makes me puke!!! Play your level jerk and you would never see nationals again!

  15. How in the hell does Kelley keep taking different teams and different cities and going to nationals every time you turn around?? It is now getting ridiculous how he continues to make it look easy going 5 and 0. He should be ashamed!

    ReplyDelete
  16. You now have to start talking about him as one of the best as far as dominant players. Simply amazing.

    1. How is zacry best captain? only reason. FW won is boneheaded move by Houston. They have an Asian team who hasn't lost a set in TWO years and they decide to avoid Kelley at one and somehow zacry GUESSED right and put Kelley at two as well and Kelley wins. So damn lucky. Why Houston didn't put their dominant team at one is STUPID!!! Houston lost on one idiot move that was ridiculous. They blew it! FW not win it they lucky as hell

    So it's easy huh? Ask Keith Clark how easy it is. Everybody moaned and whined he was tanking to 3.5 yet he got beat in finals. Ask both ft worth and Dallas 9.0 how easy it is. They both lost in their flight. Try it sometime and let me know how you do

  23. Kelly please stop posting about yourself. Such an idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think he should keep posting. At least it's better than talking about how tiebreakers are counted. Besides, the posts are more interesting. And btw, he is a pretty good idiot.
