Well, I've seen those Fab 4 before such as in the National, and imo they improved.

Who would've thought that Morton would beat Tsay so easily? Morton was good, but not THAT good in her junior years

Kaitlyn Ray? I think she definitely improved from her junior years.

Robin? Is this the same Robin was was outclassed by Krista last year at the National?

McCall Jones was losing to Desirae Krawczyk(I LIKE Desirae as a player a lot, mind you Just for reference) before she went to UCLA. Since entering UCLA she had some nice matches against TOP NCAA players.

IMO UCLA coaches are pretty good.

Re: Pac 12

So CAL plays AT Stanford this weekend.

CAL should 'strike while the iron is hot' (When STAN is reeling from the shock )

I like to see a different matchup in sgl #1.

Let Mal play #1, since she seems to be playing well.

Jana and Gibbsy met twice already, at NCAA semi and also NW R semi last year.

Did Mal and Jana ever meet before? Could be real interesting, no?

It's good for Stanford since Gibbsy beat Zsofi recently? so

I think your comment is more appropriate on Stanford, not UCLA.

Now Stanford gets(or picks) the creme de la creme, no?

Re: Pac 12

In fact, Zoe fared worse and worse against Jana, too..

10/7/2011 Riviera/ITA Women's All-American Championships Round of 16 #8 Jana Juricova #10 California Loss 6-2, 5-7, 7-6(6)

11/4/2011 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiates Championships Round of 16 #8 Jana Juricova #10 California Loss 6-3, 6-3

4/14/2012 Dual Match Pos. #1 #8 Jana Juricova #10 California Loss 6-1, 6-0

No more 'scandals'

I think she'll need to acquire some more weapons during the off-season..

Can she at least serve better, for now..?

Re: Pac 12

from UCLA website;

"The only thing up in the air is figuring out which team will get the Pac-12's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Assuming UCLA beats USC, the Bruins will get the automatic bid if Stanford downs Cal on Saturday. The only way UCLA will not get the automatic bid with a win is if Cal wins. The Bears own the head-to-head over UCLA by virtue of a 4-3 win in Berkeley on April 13."

"Speaking of Ray, she won her 26th straight match against the Cardinal, improving to 29-2 overall and 21-0 in dual matches. She is tied for the team lead in singles wins with Anderson, who is 29-6 overall."

I guess the UCLA men's team beating USC makes it even.

I'm a UCLA fan. I have to give props to the USC girls for showing up today to play. Hopefully UCLA bounces back strong!

Re: Pac 12

6-1 UCLA's only win came at #5 with Van Nguyen beating De Simone.

Great win for USC. Scandalis scandalizing Anderson in straights

Glad to meet a UCLA fan here! UCLA is definitely the team of the year, blanking Duke and defeating STAN at Taube

Re: Pac 12

'maya girl'? I think she's a medical girl (what's the proper name, can't remember ) she massaged KK's back after her win

Oh and the Israel girl is now playing at Miami, Zimmerman
