KK will be remembered as one of the best dbls players in NCAA history.
That said, she simply is not winning decisive singles matches. Look at where Anett and KK are now, who were virtually ranked the same in their freshman year, rank-wise.
The 'spotlight' was on Lao at NCAA semifinal and Gabi and Zoe in Indoors, but in fact KK lost matches too, in 2, not even 3 sets, and at NCAA, lost in dbls, even.
Now even lost #6. I'm not sure KK should play singles anymore. Like Ramos' senior season, maybe concentrating on dbls will be wise..Yates who is stronger should replace her, imo.
