Re: Former College players in Pro

The Newport Beach breakers are coached by UCI men's coach Trevor Kronemann.

Well it's called the WTT Pro League so I wonder if the NCAA considers Melichar a pro?

Re: Former College players in Pro

There was a woman who wore a UCI shirt, I dunno if she was asst coach of the Breakers or something,

I think it's Vana Yamamoto, Assistant Coach of UCI women's team(uploaded some photos at my blog)

And aren't amateurs allowed at WTT? Google search says;

'A professional and amateur co-ed tennis league created by Billie Jean King'

Oh well, whatever

Re: Former College players in Pro

Domijan is the only amateur that plays full-time. Melichar is a "wildcard" player, but she is definitely an amateur. She is looking at schools.

Singles: Won ITF Contrexeville '10, ITF Yakima '12, ITF Medellin '14, ITF Monterrey '14, ITF Asuncion '14, ITF CH-YEC '14, WTA Dubai '16

Re: Former College players in Pro

The rule last year was that amateurs could only play on an all amateur team. Back then, once you were an amateur and playing on a pro team you were automatically (whether you wanted it or not) considered a pro.
