I second Amal's forecast. 'Family' decision pending? Hope they battle to the end

Embree is the only defensive player left

You're right about the Stanford vs Stanford factor. I've been following Card tennis off and on for almost ten years and although Gibbs is an awesome player, I have to admit that Hilary is probably my ATF Card player.

Love Barte's all around court game and aggressive play. How she can hit the ball a ton, yet possesses amazing touch. Can compete at No. 1 considering she is only 5'4", probably one of the smallest players out there.

Stanford has produced a lot of great players over the years, but for me, it is Barte's actions that don't show up on the stat sheet that makes her my AFT. She seems to be a vocal leader, more vocal than any other player I've seen at their No. 1 spot. Her fiery attitude to pump up not just her, but her teammates too. How she skips out to the baseline after the court change overs. And most of all, it looks like she is having fun out there on the court, unlike a lot of other players.

It would be icing on the cake for her to take the Individual Crown on her home court for her last match.

Re: National Individual Championship, Singles and Doubles Tournaments

too bad she couldn't win Pac 10 she already is a legend in doubles and won Riviera singles last year, accomplished much so far.
(my favorite Stan player will be Amber Liu that FOX! )

Re: National Individual Championship, Singles and Doubles Tournaments

this is very bad.

I don't care if it all plays at the lower courts but it should't be separated.

Gibbs vs Barte played at court 3, while the other 2 matches are held at the lower courts, at the opposite end
Do I have to pray that the STAN match ends soon?

Re: National Individual Championship, Singles and Doubles Tournaments

I agree, Barte is playing PAINFULLY slow!

Re: National Individual Championship, Singles and Doubles Tournaments

Chelsey's going to have to pull another rabbit out of the hat to win this one, down 6-3 3-0 to Jana. Chelsey is playing terribly, missing far too much, looks like a seriously off day for her.

Embree up a set and a break on Andersson
