4.5 Nationals This Weekend

The Men's and Women's teams head to Tuscon this weekend for 4.5 Nationals. I spoke briefly with Jason Freeman this weekend and he is optimistic about his team's chances to do well. They've got a moderatly tough but not impossible grouping, with Florida, Hawaii, and an Eastern team that appears to be pretty good.
By all accounts, Hersh Pise is playing some really good tennis, and he will be relied upon heavily.

The first match for the men will be at 9AM Tuscon time against Florida, with the match against Eastern taking place in the afternoon. I've played one of the guys on the Florida team, and seen another play. They'll be tough.

The women have a similar grouping, with Florida and Eastern also in their flight, in addition to a team from El Paso (El Paso is in the Southwest Section, not Texas). Betsie's team will also start out with Florida, playing at the same time as the men.

Good luck to all...bring home some hardware to Houston.


  1. Nice 4-1 win for the men. Hersh dominated, winning 6-1, 6-0.

  2. Texas men and women are 2-0 after day 1 at 4.5 nationals.

  3. 4.5 men went 3-0 and are on to Sunday. 4.5 women lost the crunch match and didn't make it through.
