Re: General Messages

I just noticed the number of posts for our college tennis board has passed the 10,000 mark.
I can remember when that number was less than 2,500.

I remember when I first proposed the idea for this section, and it's amazing to see how it has grown. I love having a place to talk about college tennis with informed, excited fans.

Re: General Messages

Wow at 3:00 P.M. (Pacific time) today there were 50 people viewing this college board. I wonder what caused the spike in traffic?

The last time I recall around that many people viewing this board was during the tragic death of Elena Cadet.

Re: General Messages

usually user names involves tennis, school, or is self-related (for example names, like Anne Yelsey )

but there is one exception;

Amalgamate

What the.. how the hell did that become a username?

There is an Amalgamated bank in the town where I live

Re: General Messages

watching Christian / Sanchez on the receiving end is hilarious

Maria twirling the racket when receiving, and KK following Julia Cohen's lead in that she doesn't seem to care much pretty loose and looking kinda delinquent must be maddening and at the same time intimidating to the opponents she 'poses' just like that and in the blink of an eye intercepts the ball at the net making fantastic winners
moreover their lobs are just outta this world

Re: General Messages

UCLA doubles teams seemed to have no problem at first, Dolehide/Remynse winning the NCTC, beating Barte/Burdette.

Then Poorta/Isip of SMC crushes them 8-1

It derailed everything for UCLA.

One of the most shocking upsets this season.

Zemenova and Fodor at Weil

I wondered where Fodor 'vanished' after a brief 'stint' at Cal

Can you identify this mystery player?

Who's your best guess?

Re: General Messages

Watch out for Hardenbergh of UVA

She's hot right now, on a 9 match winning streak.

Notable victims are;

Bartenstein 63, 06, 61
Segarelli 0,2
Featherston 4,5
Fahoum 3,1
Bhambri 1,4

Wow, quite impressive wins

She beat Nze & Nakic before that, split a set with Niu (Unfinished)..

Re: General Messages

Lindsey has a great game, won a $10K right before she came to UVA. She's a big hitter, and she can go up against almost anyone when she's on
