2007 NCAA TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS
the University of Georgia - Athens, Georgia
May 17-28, 2007
Wednesday, May 23, 2007-Day Seven
Ohio State's number one, New Yorker Bryan Koniecko, had a rocky start against Vanderbilt's Ryan Preston. It was a one break difference in the first to Ryan, only to be the same in the second for Bryan. I was back for the end of the third and watched the Buckeye's 6-3 victory. A few courts away another New Yorker was having a similar fate. I've been watching Shadisha Robinson since she was little and she always likes to take her time. It was no different today as she won the first set against Tennessee's Blakely Griffith, only to lose the second and come back in the third. I caught some of the close points in this match.
The final New Yorker on the court today was seventh-seeded Stephen Bass (right). Though he advanced with a quick 6-2,6-4 win over Southern Cal's Kaes Van't Hof, his ankle injury is still visibly painful. We'll have to see if the Notre Dame senior can keep it up thorugh the next rounds.
Doubles begin on Thursday so I'm looking for even more excitement at the NCAA Division I Championships.
