Mens Tennis 2020 season. Run it back?

Recommended Posts

The defending national champion Texas Longhorns 🏆 are pre-season ranked #2 in the nation, but we had a lot to replace this year as only 2 of our 6 starters from last years singles lineup returned (Sigsgaard and Ito). Chih Chi Huang is also back but he only played line 6 singles some of the time last season. We recruited an incredible freshman class featuring some of the best prospects in the US, but it may take some time for them to become reliable team tennis players.

 

We kick off the season playing @ #1 ranked Florida on Wednesday January 15th. Will be a good measuring stick to see where we are.

I know Yuya feels shafted being ranked #2 in the country despite winning Oracle and ITA All American. So he's hungry this season.

Wow, big win. So only our top two (who happen to be two of the top players in the nation) are back from last years squad? 

For singles, yes.

Well Huang is also back- he was in the singles lineup consistently for the first 2/3 of the season and was always in the doubles lineup

I think if you want to say consistent season singles players, it’s just Ito and Sisgaard. Of course he has experience with a 26-9 record last year but he wasn’t really part of the core singles lineup that won the title.

Hell of a way to start the season. In our first match since winning the national championship against Wake Forest, we go on the road to upset the #1 ranked team in the nation. With how young we are outside Ito and Sigsgaard, we'll go through some bumps in the road, but the first official match in the Burke era couldn't have gotten off to a better start.
