Rain Disrupts Play at Napa Valley



Sept. 25, 2011

Rain and flight schedules forced the cancelation of half the Vols' tennis matches in the final round of the Land Rover Napa Valley Tennis Classic in St. Helena, Calif.

Tennessee junior Edward Jones was the lone Vol to complete his match on the tournament's final day at the Meadowood Resort. He led 6-3, 4-1 when his opponent JC Aragone retired.

For the second day in a row, redshirt freshman Hunter Reese could not play his match because of injury, this time against UCLA's Warren Hardie. The missed matches do not count as losses against Reese's record because according to ITA rules, a point must be played before a match can be scored a win or loss.

Sophomore Jarryd Chaplin and freshman Brandon Fickey did not play their scheduled matches.

The Vols return to competition Saturday with a pair of tournaments: the Georgia Tech Fall Invitational in Atlanta and the prequalifying rounds of the ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla.

Tennessee fielded champions in both those tournaments in 2009, with John-Patrick Smith hoisting the singles and doubles trophies of the prestigious All-American and Rhyne Williams winning his first career title in Atlanta as a freshman.
