Going from #3 to #5. Probably has something to do with Coach Forood saying "I'm not exactly sure where she will open the season. Stacey might be a little behind in her prep, but she is working hard and her tennis is starting to look good again."
"We've seen a lot of improvement from Ellen lately, not to mention a really good tournament recently at the Freeman Memorial Invitational. We're trying to get Ellen to do a few more things, and not be one-dimensional as a player. It's all about working her points more and looking for opportunities without rushing things
I don't get this
Doesn't this imply that Ellen is a ball-basher or something?
Does this mean that Ellen plays sgls like dbls?
No. 5 Stanford 6, UC Davis 1
1) Ahn/Gibbs (STAN) d. Heneghan/Sanders (UCD) 8-6
2) Tan/Tsay (STAN) d. Edles/Pham (UCD) 8-1
3) Dillon/Hardebeck (STAN) vs. Curry/Kobayakawa (UCD) abandoned
Order of Finish: 2, 1, 3
1) Nicole Gibbs (STAN) d. Megan Heneghan (UCD) 6-3, 6-3
Nice fight for Megan, she's a quality player so could harass Gibbsy. Nice drives as usual,
could rally with Gibbsy, even had some winners, defense was pretty good too such as slices,
but at times her finishes weren't too good.
2) No. 2 Krista Hardebeck (STAN) d. Lauren Curry (UCD) 6-1, 6-0
Congrats to Krista, won her 1st dual home match I think? Finished earlier than Gibbsy too
3) Kristie Ahn (STAN) d. Layla Sanders (UCD) 6-1, 6-2
4) No. 55 Ellen Tsay (STAN) d. Ellie Edles (UCD) 6-0, 6-2
5) Stacey Tan (STAN) d. Tiffany Pham (UCD) 6-0, 6-0
6) Melissa Kobayakawa (UCD) d. Natalie Dillon (STAN) 4-6, 7-6 (2), 1-0 (8)
Order of Finish: 5, 3, 4, 2, 1, 6
