Randy Phillips-

WHERE DOES a top ranked junior tennis player want to go
to college? California, where UCLA, USC, and Stanford
reign supreme? Maybe, but this year Michigan has managed to
grab off three prize players, and the Wolvwrines are preparing to
take on California, Texas, Florida, or even the worlld.
Step by step tennis coach Brian Eisner has moved his racket-
men from mere conquerers of the Big Ten each season to na-
tional prominence.
In his fourth year Eisner's youthful squad is ranked fifth
nationally in the pre-season polls behind UCLA, Stanford,
USC, and SMU. Last year Michigan bloke into the national
pictbre with a tie for 18th in the NCAA tournament, though
that was a somewhat disappointing finish for Eisner who had
hoped to break the top ten.
But bolstered by three highly ranked juniors players and
the return of all but one starter off last year's team, the usually
optimistic Eisner now has fuel for fond thoughts of a national
"Our goals on the national level are to win all our dual
match competition and win the NCAA championship," boasted
Eisngr calls his team "perhaps the best in Michigan's his-
tory."? hat's quite a statement considering the Wolverine's
national champion squad of the mid-60's with NCAA champion
Barry McKay. But looking at what Eisner's got to work with
it's hard to blame him even if he does go a little overboard with
The top plum picked this year is Puerto Rican Freddie de
Jesus. At 5-9 de Jesus is quick like a cat and has all the shots.
Freddie won the 14-under and 16-under divisions as a junior and
ranked third last year in the 18-under group.
Eisner thinks de Jesus' biggest asset is his "great know-
ledge of the game."
He's very perceptive about picking up things about his
opponent's game, and, he has the ability to then adjust his
game," added Michigan's mentor.
Freddie ranks with the late great ,Roberto Clemente in
Puerto Rico as being the only player other than Clemente to be
named tops in his sport for three consecutive years.
To complement the quick versatile de Jesus is overpower-
ing Victor Amaya. The 6-S southpaw from Holland, Michigan is
awesome with his service and forehand and adds a good overall
game to complement his two super shots.
Amaya finished sixth in the 18-under division and teamed
with Stanford's Pat Dupre to cop the doubles title. He blossomed
late due to co-ordination problems with his height, but has all
the potential, according to Eisner, to become a world class
Eisner claims that Amaya's serve is second to none in
the world-including all those powerful pros like Ashe, New-
comb, and Gonzales. Since his acceptance to Michigan Amaya
has certainly lived up to his advance billing.
He dumped all competition this fall to take the National
Indoor Championship at Dallas beating fifth ranked Billy Martin
in the finals 6-4, 6-3. The lefty easily outclassed former Wolver-
ine NCAA champ Barry McKay this past summer. Amaya lost
his serve only once in Dallas and didn't lose it at all in recently
winning a tournament in Lansing. Amaya's foe in the finals at
Lansing managed to return only five serves all day.
Even Eisner is awed by the big man's serve. Eisner (a for-
mer captain at Michigan State and ranked player in the midwest)
embarrassingly reports that Amaya has aced him six straight
times in one match and ten straight times on another occasion.
Eisner's teams have managed three- Big Ten Championships,
an 18th finish in the NCAA's, and a notebook full of individual
conference titles.
Eric Friedler is the third outstanding freshman for this sea-
son. Displaying many of de Jesus' qualities of-" quickness and
shot variety, Eric had an excellent summer of tourney play and
ranked 12th nationally. He reached the round of eight in -every
tournament he entered which makes a good case for a higher
ranking than 12th. Friedler also knocked off Stanford's top recruit
this summer.
* The trio of first year men are all in the top four accord-
ing to the latest tally of challenge matches. The fourth is
surprising sophomore Jerry Karzen. Karzen played sixth for
the Wolverines last season.
Also a sophomore, Jeff Miller (no. 2 last year) will battle
it out With junior Kevin Senich, senior Captain Tim Ott, and
seniors: Dick Ravreby and Mike Ware for the two remaining po-
A jump from 18th to first in the nation may seem a bit un-
realistic, but Michigan should at least be a contender for top
honors. On paper four teams have better talent than Michigan
with UCLA leading the pack. Eisner adds, "Stanford has the
most depth in the country. They have twelve players who were
ranked in' the top 20 at some time or other and nine who have
been ranked in the top ten in various years."
But Eisner explains how he thinks the Wolverines have a
shot at it all with the use of a term called 'ability levels.' This
level is the area between a team's best and worst possible per-
formances. As long as two teams' ability levels overlap either
team can win in head to head competition. Eisner is confident
his Wolverine's ability level overlaps even UCLA's this year.

How do you' then go out and beat UCLA? Yo do it with
hard work and a positive attitude to keep your team play-
ing at the top of its ability level ,says Eisner. He beamed,
"We're the hardest working team in the country. We've had
many team meetings, and I think everyone believes we can
Michigan's players woula not deny a claim that Eisner is
the hardest working and most competent coach in the land.
Eisner would not deny it either. Such confidence certainly can't
hurt, especially when you're the underdog.
Observing Eisner for his three years at Michigan I would
find it hard to imagine a harder working or more determined
coach. As for his competence, his record speaks for itself.
A match-up between deJesus and Amaya migh look similar
in styles of play to one of those classic confrontations between
Ken Rosewall and Rod Laver. Both Amaya and de Jesus are
true blue chippers.
The Wolverines and Eisner will have a chance to prove
themselves to the nation very shortly. The first National
Indoor Team Tournament will be held in Wisconsin's Neilson
Tennis Stadium February 1-4.
The top 16 teams will compete. Michigan has drawn a tough
Georgia squad in the first round, and if they get paF that hurdle
they will likely tackle UCLA.
Eisner is extremely excited about the tournament, because
he is anxious to see how well his players are progressing rela-
tive to other teams:
"It's had to evaluate just how well your kids are playing.
You tend to be optimistic because you know they are improving,

From Wire Service Reports
Seven rounds and 182 players'
later, the National Football League
completed its first day of the col-
legiate draft yesterday,' with the
emphasis on linemen and sur-
prises. The first major surprise
came right off the bat when Hous-'
ton selected relatively unknown
defensive tackle John Matuszak of
Tampa. Matuszak, 6-7, 275, was
overlooked for all-American con-
sideration but was number one on

New England drafted running
back Sam Cunningham of USC
with their second pick of the first
round, and then followed up with
a trade with the Bears that sent
runner Carl Garrett to Chicago
for another first round pick.
Detroit got into the draft con-
fusion by trading their first round
choice and tight end Craig Cotton
to Chicago for the Bears' first
round pick, only two places higher
and their third round draw. The
Lions then selected defensive
tackle Ernest Price from Texas

porous Lion defense.
