The Vols beat Virginia Tech today at their home courts of Barksdale Stadium. This match was never in question as the Vols rolled easily to the 4-0 win. The doubles point* was won by Smith/Concik and Fago/Jones and the remaining three points were earned by Rhyne Williams, Boris Concik, and Ed Jones.
Next up: Palo Alto.
*This gives me an opportunity to correct a previous explanation I provided on the question of how these matches are decided. So, rather than each doubles match of the 1-3 doubles slots counting a single point each, the teams play all three doubles matches at the same time and the first team to get 2 wins of those 3 matches gets the doubles point. Just one point. Singles is then played for all of slots 1-6, and the points are tallied as they finish. When one team gets 4 wins, they quit playing. It is thus a race to four, rather literally.
