UC Irvine

This UCI player from Germany has forced me to learn about the German Tennis Federation rankings which is written in German.

- A German to English translation website was invaluable.

Rangliste = rankings
Damen = women
Datum = date

That's all I pretty much needed to know to find the current and past German rankings!

- Some interesting notes I found. Mucki is from the club TC Schoenberg, the same club as Hawaii's former #1 Ellen Linsenbolz.

- Mucki's Under 21 ranking was about the same as Nebraska's #5 singles Janine Weinreich. Weinreich defeated Long Beach St.'s Sarah Cantlay last season.

- Mucki's highest Under 21 ranking was better than the highest ranking of both Pacific's #3 singles Julia Hansen and #2 singles Christina Goehl. That's encouraging. Now it's more clear why UCI is taking a chance on her.

- Germany Under 18 girls ranking for 10/2007

13. Marlen Mesgarzadeh - #2 William & Mary
14. Julia Wais - #2 San Diego St.
22. Mucki - UC Irvine freshman
23. Julia Hansen - #3 Pacific
27. Frederike Putthoff - Nebraska freshman
38. Maike Zeppernick - Nebraska freshman
42. Laura Claus - #2 San Diego
43. Janine Weinreich - #5 Nebraska
53. Carla Lindlar - #6 Baylor
81. Maria Pistalu - #6 CS Northridge

Form you sound confused so let me set you straight!

UCI swept Long Beach St. 4-0 in singles and would have taken 4 singles from Pacific regardless of how the doubles went.

Against UCSB Byron/Smith defeated their best doubles team of Lozano/Dockendorf which had played 16 matches at #1 doubles. So even if Byron/Smith played #1 they would have defeated the lesser UCSB team at #1. UCI still wins the doubles point.

1. The conference officials approved UCI's line-up ahead of time so it wasn't ruled a stack.

2. In college tennis if you think there's cheating you file a protest. The ITA will serve as judge and jury and decide if cheating occurred or not. Their ruling is final and ends any further debate on the matter. In UCI's case a protest was filed. The ruling was in UCI's favor and no penalties assessed. End of story and debate.

3. I AM PROUD, very proud that's why it's on my signature. Form you can be bitter for the rest of your life because no one can ever take away that 2010 Big West Tourney title from UCI. Unlike when Reggie Bush is stripped of his Heisman.

Our little game player likes to goof around with German spellings (often with or without 'e' in the player or club name

Fransiska Goettshing (Gottshing on German list)... currently # 61 in Germany... age 20

Welcome to America Mucki.... and stay out of the UCI library as Gouci once stalked one of your teammates there

Form you make a great point. In Germany they play a lot on clay and indoor courts. So how Mucki will do on hard courts is uncertain.

Sorry to disappoint you but my cut-off date has always been May. Tennis season is over by June. Even Chelsey Gullickson won the NCAA singles title in May. I consider Mucki a 21 year old sophomore but I don't keep track of those.

When I saw Mucki's doubles record I predicted to myself Stephanie Hammel and Mucki may become UCI's #1 doubles team. Byron/ Smith may be #2 and Holladay, Kwan or Schweyer may be the #3. I think Byron/Smith playing the Riviera instead of Hammel/Byron, who reached the finals of the regionals last season, may support my prediction.

Form I imagined you doing a search for Gottsching on the ITF or WTA rankings site and coming up empty handed.

Form you're not the sharpest tool in the shed. Remember when you couldn't find Margarita Spicin.

So I decided to help you out with my hint by spelling it how it's found in the ITF & WTA rankings page under Goettsching.

For Your Info: In German the "o with 2 dots above it" translates to "oe" in English.

So Christina Gohl = Goehl.
Gottsching = Goettsching
TC Schonberg = TC Schoenberg

Even with my help you still don't have the name right.

It's Franziska with a "z" not s.
And Goettsching with a "c" before the h.

Form now you're just hating on me with hurtful lies.

Let me share with you some wisdom.

When I squeeze an orange, orange juice comes out. Why? Because that's what's inside.

When I squeeze you Form, pettiness & bitterness & hatred comes out. Why? Because that's what's inside.

Even though I'm doing the squeezing, I have no control of what comes out. So don't blame me for the pettiness & bitterness & hatred that comes out of you. What comes out is what's inside. Only you can change what's inside of yourself.

Re: Big West - news 2010-11

You just noticed about Bartlett today?

Bartlett went missing before Bisharat did.

A new player was at the UCI courts.

The UCI roster will be adding 1 more later.

Form thoughts of WHAT IF LBS only had a scholarship to give must have crossed your mind. Maybe you even dreamed about potentially hosting a regional this season with a big summer pick-up bumping Rocky down to #6.

UC Irvine

One of the world's most famous athletes trains at UC Irvine in the off season. I'm sure even Mucki from overseas in Germany has heard of him.

UCI student-athletes have Q&A with NBA star.


Just a perk of playing for UCI.

UC Santa Barbara

UCSB may have their best team ever next season.

They return Sofia Novak, Jill Damion?, Natalia Lozano, Annabel Gledden and Jordan Dockendorf.

Plus they just picked up 5 stars to be April Scatliffe and Paola Cos.

Long Beach St.

Form congrats on Long Beach St.'s new player commitment and Deborah Armstrong's replacement.

Kouyoumjian is currently ranked #303 on TRN and dropping. I wonder if that's the lowest ranked project player Long Beach St. has ever taken in.
