T is for Tennis: The Weekend Wrap-Up

Last time, you recall, both the Georgia men's and women's teams secured berths in the ITA National Team Indoor Championships to be held later this month. Both teams returned to the courts this weekend with wins. The men defeated East Tennessee State University 6-1 yesterday, and the women blanked FIU (again) earlier today.

Now that the Madonna concert is over, we can do a quick check on the proceedings. And if you want, you can return to the Super Bowl Sunday festivities here at Dawg Sports, already in progress.

The fourth-ranked men, now 4-0 on the season, swept the doubles matches against ETSU and won the first five singles matches to be completed. With the score at 6-0, the team victory already was decided in UGA's favor. Only the six spot remained unfinished, where Georgia's Campbell Johnson and ETSU's Jorge Veron fought a valiant battle, ultimately won by Veron 3-6, 6-3, 1-0 (11-9).

Our men's team has been switching things up this season: we have guys like Johnson stepping in for doubles play but stepping off the courts while someone else steps in for singles. That's some quality depth right there. I wonder if there's a shutdown cornerback among them. Next for the men is another home date: they take on William and Mary at 4:00 p.m. On Friday, 10 February.

The women faced off against FIU earlier today and, just like in the ITA Kick-Off Weekend, shut out the Panthers 7-0, improving to a spotless 6-0 for the season. After takingthe doubles point with a sweep of all three matches, the Dawgs took all six singles, winning in straight sets in every match but one. The women next travel to Charlottesville, Virginia, for the ITA National Team Indoors and are set to play No. 14 Texas at noon on Friday, 10 February.
