Major Statement for NCAA Tennis

Novak Djokovic's second round 7-6(1), 3-6, 6-4 loss to South African Qualifier Kevin Anderson in Miami is not only a monumental upset, but also a major statement for NCAA College tennis.

While many top tennis players are opting to skip college to hit the tour, Anderson proves that at least spending a few years on the NCAA circuit can help build much needed strength and match toughness. The former Illinois star didn't win the national collegiate singles title last season - dropping a 7-6, 5-7, 6-3 decision to Virginia's Somdev Devvarman.

So what does that say about NCAA tennis? A player who doesn't win an NCAA turns around and takes down the hottest player in men's tennis less than a year later?

It proves that these former college players can hang with anyone. Just ask Bobby Reynolds (Vanderbilt), Amer Delic (Illinois) and the Georgia Bulldog Jon Isner - all of whom are safely in the top 115 on tour - and rising.
