#13 Redlands at #9 UC Santa Cruz Match Preview

Projected Lineups
1. Gendelman/Liberty-Point vs. Reading/Spearman
2. Kamel/Vartabedian vs Wong/Trippel
3. Mark-Griffin/Ortiz vs. Ouye/Fashouer

1. Max Liberty-Point vs. Michael Reading
2. Jared Kamel vs. Cameron Spearman
3. Ilya Gendelman vs. Aron Ouye
4. Max Ortiz vs. Matt Liebman
5. Colin Mark-Griffin vs. Chris Trippel
6. Marc Vartabedian vs. Keven Wong

I think the poll results so far are pretty accurate showing that Redlands most likely won't win more than 3 matches. This will be their first true test of the season. Redlands always plays good doubles but I don't know where they are going to win here. #3 doubles is the best chance for Redlands and they will need this to stay in the match. I think Redlands has a good chance at 3 and 4 singles, but after that I definitely like Santa Cruz in all the other matches. I think Santa Cruz should get back on track after a disappointing Indoors with a 6-3 or 7-2 win against Redlands at home.
