thx but I'm not THAT good I'm as much surprised as everyone with Morgan's result. The ITF results I just glossed from the internet after Gatorfan's post Although I did see Morgan play at UNLV invite and she WAS impressive enough; KK just squeaked out a win against her.

But beating Ahn so easily? Who knew You have to give credit to UF for noticing her potential and training her well I guess.

I know it was speculated, but per UF website Danielle Collins is officially transferring:

made the decision to transfer at the end of the 2012-13 season (Virginia)

Seems like Roland has some work to do to field a full team in 2014...

Not too surprising. She didn't get much playing time and her boyfriend (Mac Styslinger) attends UVA. Doubt it was a tough decision for Danielle! She'll have much more of an impact at UVA.

I wonder if Peggy Porter will graduate early?

I wonder who's losing their scholarship at Virginia. If I'm doing my count correctly they'll be at 9 with Danielle.

I'm curious to see how being with her bf will affect her game (if at all). She seemed to really struggle this year in the transition to the college game which is a bit of a surprise considering how heralded she was in juniors.

Virginia had eight scholarship players and two walk-ons last year. Three of the eight scholarship players were seniors, and only one recruiting commitment has been received, so Danielle Collins would make seven scholarships. That leaves one still open.

Danielle Collins had a very good fall, and then went 5-0 in the SEC, including wins against top opponents like Texas A&M. The question I had when looking over her stats was: Why didn't she get more chances at dual matches? The answer seems to be that they simply had that many players who were winning all their matches anyway. SEC records by dual match position:

1. Lauren Embree 10-0
2. Sophie Oyen 8-1
3. Alex Cercone 9-1
4. Brianna Morgan 7-1, Olivia Janowicz 1-0
5. Olivia Janowicz 8-0, Danielle Collins 2-0, Caroline Hitimana 1-0
6. Caroline Hitimana 5-0, Danielle Collins 3-0, Olivia Janowicz 0-2

(BTW, in the 4-3 loss to Texas A&M, Oyen and Cercone lost their only SEC matches, and a not-100% Janowicz lost at #6 while Collins won in straights at #5).

So, it looks like it is tough to make much argument for any player to move up from where they played, because everyone was close to unbeatable (when healthy) in a tough conference. Danielle Collins could be 5-0 in the SEC and be unneeded when everyone else is healthy. But, with Lauren Embree and Caroline Hitimana graduating, I am not sure that playing time was the reason to leave.

Welcome Clark of the Warehouse & Sabre board. I'm sure you'll provide the ACC thread with more traffic.

FYI the infamous FedAce was annoying people on this board some years ago but thank goodness he left or maybe got banned.

Re: 2012-13 verbals, high interest & transfers

No surprise about Danielle. Saw that coming for a long time.

And ClarkC, Danielle is the ultimate diva; the truth antithesis of a team player (e.g. when the Stanford/Florida match came down to Cercone and Janowicz, Danielle was sitting in the stands talking about getting her nails done and eating pizza with Britney Sanders from Notre Dame rather than going on court with the rest of her teammates.) I imagine her seeing little playing time had more to do with her terrible attitude on and off the court rather than skill.

Victoria Azarenka Venus Williams
Sloane Stephens Christina McHale

Re: 2012-13 verbals, high interest & transfers

I was watching a Chirico match from Vero Beach this year and stumbled across this NCAA tennis recruiting tape:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLZ-q_OcD-w

Best recruiting video I have seen hands down!!! Great video angle that can see the whole court and both players. Nice background music...other future recruits should take note of all these details!

I was thinking wow, never saw twins play before. One's left handed and the other is right handed. They're both from Barcelona.

They were 16 years old, when they made this video.

Googled to see where they went and found out that they went to Marquette.

http://www.gomarquette.com/sports/w-...ennis-mtt.html

http://marquettewire.org/2012/10/11/...tennis-in-u-s/

I read the "prior to" from their bio, which seems suspect since there is no mention of rankings.

All I can say is smart head on these girl's shoulders, as they got their business degrees paid for.
