UGA Men’s Tennis: Athens Moments – USC Missions Accomplished

How do you top three straight national championships? Win one more, of course.

The USC men’s tennis team entered the 2012 NCAA Championships in Athens having won three straight titles. The Trojans were the best team from top to bottom and had the nation’s best player in senior Steve Johnson, who was the NCAA singles champion in 2011 and headed toward the greatest collegiate career of all time.

No pressure, right? Anything more would have to just be the icing on top, right?

“I normally don’t feel pressure in those situations, but that was the one where I felt a lot of pressure,” USC coach Peter Smith said earlier this month. “I felt like Steve gave up a lot to come back, and if we didn’t win, it would be considered a failure — that’s a strong word, but maybe a failure.”

ATHENS, Ga. — A weather delay at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex delayed the NCAA Quarterfinal match between No. 12 Georgia and 5th-ranked UCLA for five hours, but the Bulldogs eventually prevailed, 4-2, to advance to the semifinals.

After dropping the doubles point, Georgia went into the delay down 1-0, but took a 2-1 lead less than fifteen minutes after play resumed. Wayne Montgomery was within two points of winning when play stopped and wasted no time sealing the victory, and Walker Duncan won a second-set tiebreaker shortly after to win his match. Jan Zielinski provided the clincher for the Bulldogs (22-7), who now advance to the NCAA Semifinals for the second-straight year, a feat they last accomplished by doing it six consecutive years from 2006 to 2011.

“Mighty proud of this bunch,” said Georgia head coach Manuel Diaz. “They fought their hearts out and beat a very good team. We didn’t play our very best at number two and three doubles and that got us in trouble, but they came out and really asserted themselves. Our number one team played well today, we just have to pick it up a little bit in doubles. The way we are competing in singles, we’re playing really hard, and that gives us a chance. I am very proud of the way these guys believed in themselves and went out there and executed their game plans.”
