My Recap of Men's and Women's Team Finals; Taylor Townsend Conference Call Transcript

Before the start of today's round of 16 in singles, I wanted to post a link to my recap of the NCAA Division I men's and women's team event, which is now up at the Tennis Recruiting Network. Under difficult circumstances, the men's final between USC and Virginia was a tense and memorable match from start to finish, while Florida's win over UCLA was an impressive, if less exciting, display of tennis.

In the midst of the second day of the individual tournament, I took time out to phone in to the USTA's conference call with Taylor Townsend and Patrick McEnroe.  Townsend revealed that she recently did a fitness block with Pat Etcheberry in Orlando, likes clay better than you might expect given her game style, and will train in Spain prior to the French Open Junior Championships. The complete transcript, which includes several questions to McEnroe about player development in general, can be found at ASAP Sports Transcripts.
