Thanks for the update. That's too bad! I would've loved to watch those matches. Hopefully they put out a release with results.

And the touted(by me hey I touted Krista and she contributed to STAN's NCAA win) freshman Jen Brady comes in. She can play both #1 sgls and dbls..Krista was a STRONG addition in singles (but who knew she would be NCAA Team #3 dbls team ). Jen will be a STRONG add in BOTH, sgls AND dbls.

UCLA is now chock full of very strong hitters, in terms of firepower NOONE can beat them. And ALL are EXCELLENT dbls players as well.
AND they HAVE been to the final plenty of times, even won it.

Both UCLA teams can win NCAA. Men and Women. When was the last time this happened?
I actually think UVA can challenge them

Xi, Nauta, Elbaba, Epstein, Collins...this is QUITE a lineup

Re: Pac 12

This thread needs more discussion about CAL!!!

Actually it doesn't. Just hoping that Fabikova can shape up and Susyani heals. I have high hopes for Mannasse, too.


Faves: Sharapova, Hantuchova, Safarova, Goerges
GO BEARS!

Re: Pac 12

I think Maegan can win a dbls slam.

Hoping that when you are on campus, you can spark some more discussion here. Maybe even apply some math to the player averages.

Cal needs one more top player to keep pace with Stanford, UCLA, and USC--preferably someone who is also good at doubles! Do the Bears have another international player up their sleeve?

I'd think Zhou and Ahn as a doubles team. Tsay and Hardebeck might compliment each other well too.

Re: Pac 12

Despite the catastrophic endings, USC's last 2 seasons should be termed as a success.

Despite disadvantage in recruiting(Hibi didn't name USC as prospective college. It's really hard for USC to get those #1 players), beating those star-studded STAN & UCLA convincingly during the dual season testifies to USC's strength.

USC recruited recently; Yates-Katz-Westby-Smith. I wonder how many of you recognize their names Not the creme de la cremes, for sure, but USC WILL continuously challenge the elite teams.

Overcoming that extra hurdle, advancing to the Team final, is their next project. It won't be easy, of course..even defending the PAC 12 title will be an herculean task..

Yates-Katz-Westby-Smith? Do they play hockey?

Winning the Pac-12 title these days in the toughest division in the nation is no easy feat, then doing it two years in a row against star-studded teams...it seems no justice for USC to be ranked #5 and having to play a team in the R16 capable of winning it all.

I don't think a 3-peat of the Pac-12 is out of the question with the Cards rebuilding this year
