No Real Story Last Night in 4.0

Let's face it, only an upset last night would have been newsworthy. The HTA has done a good job of back-loading the schedule and the early matches are either mismatches or feature two (expected) also-rans.

The Hurricanes breezed to a win over a completely overmatched Cinco Ranch team. The Unicorns won 3-2, and displayed a complete lack of depth. Despite a couple of really nice pieces, they may not be ready for prime time. Due to a lack of court availability, the Good Guys will not finish beating up on Sienna until tonight. Finally, despite Pedro Saiz giving Mark Etienne a scare, the West Side Warriors handled Lakeside 3-2. Westside won three third set breakers.

  2. I don't think that was the Unicorns best lineup...

  3. im 90% sure it is...they 've made it this far because their division to playoffs sucked!

    ReplyDelete
  4. ive seen the unicorns. they were either hiding players or just flat out missing them

    ReplyDelete
  5. Hurricanes should sweep the unicorns 5-0 any day. We have a lot of players at the 4.5 level who were bumped down to 4.0.

    But if we only had tuan tran on our team...

    ReplyDelete
  6. Doesn't matter if Hurricanes can beat Unicorns because neither can beat the Mob Squad.

    We actually have tuan tran on our team...

    1. Didnt tuan play last year in 4.0 and they lost against the hurricanes. He s a nonfactor.

    2. Mob Squad beat the Hurricanes in the final of the City Playoffs, and Mob Squad are the defending City Champions.

    3. Chancellors is the defending champion.

      Delete
    4. Mob Squad = Chancellors

  7. Tuan "The Train" Tran will spot the hurricanes by playing all 5 lines by himself - at the same time. That way, the hurricanes might have a shot at winning one set against The Train.

  8. Very funny, but this guy is the real Pete Rios and can play under pressure/ a doubles specialist. Don't let that innocent look fool you idiots.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Watching rios play at San Antonio. What a joke he was a 4.0 last year. Maybe he was on fire when I watched him but still WTF.

    ReplyDelete
  10. If he played for Texas Southern, how can he play 4.0?

    ReplyDelete
  11. If your talking about pete computer did not think he was better than 4.0 until pete decided to play like a mad man and computer said, oh shit he is 5.0

  12. MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSE

  13. How are the Dallas and Ft Worth teams looking this year at the 4.0 level. Is Houston the team to beat this year again??

    ReplyDelete
  14. Houston has several good teams but no great teams. Austin looks really good and might be the team to beat.

  15. Lineup predictions and results for Thursday night matches?

    ReplyDelete
  16. rain is forecasted for the rest of the week. blast has indoors courts, so that match will mostlikely happen.

    flight1
    canes vs dbag- canes win 3-2
    bs vs lakeside- lakeside win 3-2

    flight2
    copperfield vs hrc- copperfield wins 3-2
    sugar creek vs blast - sugar creek wins 3-2

    1. There is no way Sugar Creek plays @ JCC. No way, Douds is way to smart to let that happen.

      Delete
    2. What happens if it does rain? I'm guessing they just move the match to Friday, but forecast doesn't look good all week.

      Delete
    3. I think they'll just play the matches the following weekend. There is no real rush. Sectionals isn't until early August.

  17. Why they call him the train?

  18. Looks like the Good Guys finally got the score management memo with Andrew Nguyen. Nice 3 set win cheaters.

    ReplyDelete
  19. woo. I love you tuan tran

    ReplyDelete
  20. don't play with his heart little boy. he's a gangster and will eat you alive. i think he is associated with VB or KB gang.I think i saw him once on gangland, but couldnt really identify him. he was like 120 lbs.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Good Guys look impressive. Can they be the sleeper team this year?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Their team is littered with solid players, a few who stick out, but their roster is very deep with experienced players who seem to know how to win.

  22. if they keep their stud andrew nguyen eligible they could be dangerous.

    Houston will definitely get wild card in 4.0. Very likely Houston will get one too in 4.5.

  33. if i am the sienna captain, i would protest andrew nguyen for throwing a set on purpose.

    that should be an automatic DQ for him.

    what a bunch of cheaters!

    1. +1 but they re not going to do anything... the captain with the red vette is scared of us.

      Delete
  34. I agree, the Sienna captain basically allowed Andrew Nguyen to tank against him. Poor judgement by the Sienna captain, good move by the Good Guys captain.

    I highly doubt Lance Loken or Michael Spoor let Andrew Nguyen tank to their guys because they both know that whoever has a close score with Andrew will end up with a year-end 4.5 rating.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Your comment had merit until you mentioned Loken. He has proven to be as dumb as the Sienna captain.

      I bet dollars to donuts the Sienna captain thought he was really playing good tennis when he took that set from Andrew Nguyen. Lot of morons out there.

  37. 5 wild cards in 4.0. Any chance Houston could get 2 wild cards in 4.0?

    ReplyDelete
  38. No chance Houston gets 2 wild cards.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Let's just all start tanking sets or get rid of all the cheating or whining league captains.
    As a benchmark player who is going to get bumped up anyway, you're wasting your time tanking a set against me. I'll take a playoff win and be happy about it.

  40. 4.5 gets two spots into State, both finalists on Sunday afternoon go to Dallas. Same as last year.

    3. Do you think Blacksheeps is going to Dallas or they will find a way to lose and stay in Houston as usual?

  41. Unconfirmed but reported that Austin got a WC in 4.5.

    Lets hope Htown gets that second one and you guys are correct.

  42. Definitely mobsquad. We expect to sweep the gaycorns 4-1 and only expect sheshir to win line 1 singles.

    1. whatever y'all say.

      worse case we win 3-2 and a win is a win.
      we're pretty sure we can take sexshir and the other singles sleeper (nigel norohna). piece of cake gaycorns

    2. wow... fob squad goes from a sweep to 4-1 to now 3-2.

      someone is losing confidence quickly!

      Delete
  44. lol, that was not smart, fobsquad.

    blacksheep found a way to lose to dbags 2 years ago, when they were up 2-0, and failed to secure the win to go to sectionals. they have a much better team this year, but so do 5 other teams. they wont make sectionals. they will end up 5th or 6th in city

  45. Whatever team Tuan is on its over. No 4.0 can touch him, your gonna get hammered and at the end he will be singing (can't touch this)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ristau and Lacy dont have what it takes to make it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Blacksheep has too many outs this year. If they can't make it to sectionals this year,Ristau should kick himself and retire as captain.
