Tennis is one of my favorite sports, and it's always exciting to watch the college version.
I think the Men's team this year can make a deep run in this Tournament and make some noise.
They have the skills and leadership necessary. Only one non-conference loss on the year, which was a close one to #2 (at the time) Virginia.
Ilyushin on center is up 4-0.
Chaudry on Court 2 is up 2-1.
Coupland is up 2-1 on Court 3.
Cant is leading 3-2 on Court 4.
White on Court 5 is up 5-0 looking to close the set.
Wilkinson just went up 4-2 on Court 6.
All of those are in the first set.
Bulldogs up a set: Wilkinson (Court 6, 6-3) Cant (Court 4, 6-2) Ilyushin (center, 6-1), White (Court 5, 6-0)
Chaudry and Copeland still battling on Courts 2 and 3 respectively (4-2 on the second, 3-3 on the third).
Zach White is the first winner of today's singles in straight sets (6-0, 6-0) on court 5.
Center: Ilyushin up 6-1, 3-0
2nd: Chaudry up 6-2, 0-1
3rd: Coupland up 6-3, 0-0
4th: Cant up 6-2, 5-0 looking to close it out.
6th: Wilkinson up 6-3, 3-2
Cant wins on court 4 (6-2, 6-0)
2nd: Chaudry up 6-2, 2-1
3rd: Coupland up 6-3, 1-0
6th: Wilkinson up 6-3, 5-2
Only one more point needed for State to win.
State wins 4-0 as Wilkinson wins shortly after Cant.
MSU in action tomorrow at 2 PM at the AJ Pitts Tennis Centre against top 20 opponent Baylor.
Great work Zach and much appreciated.
