            Dellien, a native of Trinidad, Bolivia, went a combined 3-0 last weekend to help the Shockers beat #48 SMU and upset #28 Pepperdine at home to extend their win streak to five. Dellien started the weekend with a doubles victory with partner Marius Frosa over SMU's Caleb Chakravarthi/Jan-Simon Vrbsky, 6-3.

              Shocks were not able to get it done against Tulane on Friday falling to the Green Wave 5-2. The highliht of the match was Senior Murkel Dellien's comeback victory and dominant tiebreak performance over No. 29 Hamish Stewart, 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-1.) This extends his winning streak to 10 matches.

              On to Florida.

                Today's match vs USF has been cancelled due to weather. I guess no indoor tennis facilities in Tampa to serve as a backup in case of bad weather. A long way to travel for a rainout.

                  Shockers Fall to Ninth Ranked Knights 5-2


                  Highlights for the Shocks was No. 72 Murkel Dellien and Marius Frosa a beating No. 29 Trey Hilderbrand/Bogdan Pavel, 6-3 at the No.1 doubles slot but UCF won #2 and #3 doubles to secure the doubles point.

                  At the No. 1 singles Murkel Dellien played one of the best players in the nation, No. 4 Gabriel Decamps. Decamps has seven ranked victories this season and was riding a 13-match win streak at one point. Decamps got the best of Dellien in the first set, but the rest of the match favored the senior from Bolivia. Dellien was able to force a third set and won comfortably in the end, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2. This was Dellien's highest ranked win of his career and one of the best singles wins in school history. He improved his record to 12-2 and is currently on a 11-match win streak with a 4-0 record versus ranked foes. Very nice win indeed.

                  In the No. 2 singles Marius Frosa won the first Shocker point of the afternoon by winning a close 10-point tiebreak over Alan Rubio, 6-2, 3-6, 10-8.

                  However, UCF prevailed in the other 4 singles matches.

                  Not a bad effort by the Shocks.

                    Senior Murkel Dellien had a stellar weekend of singles action, downing two of the AAC's best players in No. 24 Tulane's No. 29 Hamish Stewart and No. 9 UCF's No. 4 Gabriel Decamps to be named the American Athletic Conference Men's Co-Player of the Week.

                    Dellien, a native of Trinidad, Bolivia, had to fight back from a first set loss to Stewart and win a third-set tiebreak to earn a victory, 3-6, 6-4, 7-6(1). Decamps also won his first set against Dellien, but the Dellien exerted his will the rest of the way and comfortably won the last two sets, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2. These wins increased his win streak to 11 and the victory over No. 4 Decamps will go down as one of the best in school history. Dellien also picked up a ranked win in doubles with partner Marius Frosa. The 72nd ranked duo downed UCF's No. 29 Trey Hilderbrand/Bogdan Pavel, 6-3.

                        I watched Dellien's match with Decamps off and on. He looked over-matched in the first set but settled down and battled in the 2nd. I had no idea Decamps was ranked that high but with the way he looked in that first set I'm not surprised. Great win!
