Maverick Maniac's Musings

2012-13 Omaha Men’s Tennis – Match #3 Preview – Arkansas

Filed under: Men's Tennis,Omaha Mavericks,Previews — Jon Green @ 3:06 pm

Omaha gets their 2013 tennis schedule underway on Sunday against Arkansas. Omaha will be taking on the Razorbacks at home at the Hanscom Brandeis Tennis Center at 11 am. Omaha is in 5th season of existence and 2nd at the Division one level. Last year Omaha went 6-13 with the only Division 1 win over Western Illinois.

The Mavericks have a nice schedule this year with Arkansas, Western Illinois, North Dakota, Oral Roberts, Creighton, Kansas City, South Dakota State, and Bradley all playing at Omaha. The Mavericks will be challenged as the schedule is full of Division 1 opposition (the only non-D1 opponent is Nebraska Wesleyan on February 2nd).

A college tennis match like this consists of six singles matches (three sets) and three doubles matches (one set).

It’s a little unclear who the Mavericks will use in each singles spot since we haven’t seen any matches this year. There were two events in the fall that might help us though.  In the SIUE Fall Invitational Omaha used the following lineup…

Singles:
#1 – Conner Tieszen
#2 – Eric McKnight
#3 – Carols Ramos Salazar
#4 – John Ellis/Matt Frost/Dobby O’Donnel
#5 – Connor Larson
#6 – Matt Frost
#7 – Dobby O’Donnel
#8 – Peter Greteman

Doubles:
#1 – Frost/Ramos Salzar
#2 – McKnight/Ellis
#3 – Tieszen/Dobby O’Donnel
#4 – Larson/Greteman

Then in the Omaha Intercollegiate Invitational Omaha used the following…

Singles:
Flight A – Conner Tieszen
Flight B – John Ellis/Eric McKnight
Flight C – Matt Frost/Connor Larson
Flight D – Dobby O’Donnel
Flight E – Nate Greteman/Erik Anderson/Pete Greteman

Doubles:
Flight A – Matt Frost/Conner Tieszen
Flight B – John Ellis/Eric McKnight and Peter Greteman/Dobby O’Donnel
Flight C – Erik Anderson/Nathan Greteman

So here’s a guess at the matchups we’ll see tomorrow.
Singles:
#1 – Conner Tieszen
#2 – Eric McKnight
#3 – Carols Ramos Salazar
#4 – John Ellis
#5 – Connor Larson
#6 – Matt Frost

Doubles:
#1 – Frost/Ramos Salazar
#2 – Ellis/McKnight
#3 – Tieszen/Dobby O’Donnel

Arkansas will be facing South Dakota State right afterwards, a double header for the Razorbacks. They play a lot more matches than Omaha and are ranked 56th as a team.  Not really sure what to expect lineup wise so early in the season and I’m not going to bother speculating at all.
