My story on Sunday's Big Ten Men's Championship match is now available at the Tennis Recruiting Network. I haven't publicly thanked them recently for providing me with an outlet for my work, and one that allows me to offset the expenses of my travel to tournaments, but I do appreciate it. Please consider signing up for a Recruiting Advantage account if you don't already have one, to get the best the site has to offer.
It took longer than I would have liked, but the Easter Bowl slideshow and short YouTube videos are now complete. In addition to the Evan King video below, there are 11 others of Easter Bowl finalists at the TennisKalamazoo channel.
John Isner won the French Open wild card tournament today, beating Jesse Levine 7-6(2), 6-4, 6-4, according to this Sun-Sentinel story that went up only hours after the completion of the match. Sloane Stephens, who is quoted in this story after her win over Gail Brodsky, will play Nicole Gibbs on Friday. This will be something of a dilemma for the Junior Fed Cup qualifying that starts tommorrow--Gibbs was expected to play No. 1 singles on a team that includes Lauren Herring and Ester Goldfeld. I haven't seen the draw yet, but the rosters for all four events can be found at the bottom of this story at usta.com.
I'll update via Twitter (look left) when I get the results of the other two quarterfinal matches between Stacey Tan and Kristie Ahn and CoCo Vandeweghe and Lauren Embree.
