JIC you missed this Jeff White article about Carl Soderlund.

I was looking for some news about the 2021 UVA tennis team and reread the linked article about Carl. He lived on the lawn last year and is living on the Range while pursuing a MS in Commerce and playing #1 on the tennis team. He will lead us to some high level tennis success in 2021. I am trying not to be overly optimistic about this year's team, but with the quality of the returning talent and the #3 ranked recruiting class, this team should be among our best ever and IMO winning another Natty is a realistic possibility. I have long believed that to be able to win a Natty you have to have a dominant (meaning top 3/4 national level player) at #1 and Carl certainly seems to be that. You also need strong #2 who is in the top 20 nationally. Of course really good players at 3 thru 6 also help. I am really not sure who will play #2 for us. It could be Ryan Goetz (my pick) , Gianni Ross , or maybe one of our 3 foreign recruits. The one from Switzerland seems to have the highest worldwide junior record.
