Kobelt and partner, Kevin Metka, No. 4 seeded, take on Webb and his partner, Andrew Harris, in the first round of doubles, tonight at 5:30 p.m.

Thanks, again, Nellie, for keeping us up to speed on the happenings with the tennis Bucks!

No problem.

Peter Kobelt lost his singles match to Dane Webb of OK.

But, Kobelt and Kevin Metka beat the team of Cox and Milhov (SoCar) in straight sets to move into the second round in doubles.  The Bucks' team was originally scheduled to play the OK team of Webb and Andrew Harris, so apparently that team withdrew from doubles after Webb beat Kobelt.

Kobelt and Metka have a legitimate shot at winning the doubles title.  Let's go Bucks!

Just FYI, Kobelt and Metka won their 2nd round match and are through to the quarterfinals.  Next opponents: Lloyd Glasspool and Soren Hess-Oleson of Texas.  Kobelt and Metka are the highest seeds (4) left in their half of the bracket, after the No. 1 seeded team from USC lost in the first round.  The Nos. 2 and 3 seeds from Vandy and Tennessee appear to be on a collision course in the opposite half.

Go Buckeye Netters!
