TCU head coach David Roditi added another title today when he was named captain of the Mexico Davis Cup team. Roditi who just finished his sixth year at the helm of his alma mater played in several Davis Cup ties for Mexico from 1997 to 2000. Roditi's first tie will take place on July 15-17 when Mexico travels to Peru.

Clemson made a coaching change on Tuesday with eight year assistant John Boetsch taking over for Chuck McCuen who had been head coach for the last eight years. McCuen, who went 110-96 in those eight seasons with two NCAA appearances, will remain on as the Director of Tennis Operations.

The US Open National Playoffs are well underway with four sectionals already completed. Many of the names below should be familiar to those that follow college tennis and I'm sure that plenty of the upcoming winners will be as well. You can look at all upcoming events at this link.

    Davis Cup is perfect for Roditi! Does anyone know if he is the first person to hold college head coach and Davis Cup captain positions at the same time?

    except Mexico sucks. Seriously why does Mexico never even produce top 300 pros?

    Sadly we will likely again see tweet after tweet with just his picture and the team results mentioned somewhere in the background.

    I know he'd been there a while - maybe he'll stay in that role for a year or two before retiring - is kind of strange though.

    If looking at it just based off UTR TCU would be favored in all four singles matches because it'd be TCU's top two versus Mexico's top two.

    TCU - Cameron Norrie (14.99) & Alex Rybakov (14.59)
    MEX - Lucas Gomez (14.27) & Hans Hach (13.91)

    I was using college format. Besides if it were Davis cup format, TCU could only play their Americans!!
