Quest for #109: Men's Tennis Elite Eight Open Thread

UCLA Athletics / NCAA

It seems that we're back up and running, and fortunately, so is our #1-seeded men's tennis team, which will be in action against Duke in the NCAA quarterfinal round in Illinois this afternoon at 2 p.m., as they seek to bring home UCLA's 109th NCAA national title to Westwood.

The #1-seeded men's tennis team continues to survive and advance in dominating fashion, marching into today's Elite Eight matchup with #9-seeded Duke following a 4-0 demolition of #16-seeded Vanderbilt in the Sweet Sixteen round. Against Vandy, the Bruins got started with a solid pair of wins to take the doubles point (8-4, 8-0), followed by three straight singles wins by Adrien Puget (6-2, 6-1), Clay Thompson (6-1, 6-2), and Karue Sell (6-4, 6-3) to take four straight points and continue their perfect run in NCAA action. As it currently stands, UCLA has yet to drop a point in NCAA action, and they'll look to continue their assault on the national title this afternoon against Duke, with the match getting underway at 2 p.m. PST.

If you want to check out the action, both live statistics and live video will be available through the University of Illinois here.
