My guess is Starr and Manasse would join Susanyi, Shutting, Fabikova, and Chi in the singles lineuup, just based on how highly ranked they were coming out of HS. Has anyone here seen them play and can provide more information?

I think doubles will be wide open. Perhaps it was bc of Zsofi's injury, but the Bears never had a really set lineup here. Schutting and Chi did OK but didn't scare anybody at #1. Cal has a history of good doubles teams, so I look forward to the Bears improving in tthis area.

Re: Pac 12

Who feels that it's taking way too long to start the season? I don't get it...tennis is an all year sport and not many matches scheduled between June thru January.

How does college really prepare them to be pros playing "part-time"?

Agreed. I've always wondered about that.

I think the season is already overly long for a scholar-athlete, as they say most Division I athletes will go pro in something other than their sport.

But for the the top players who plan carefully, they can get in two or three professional tournaments during the Fall, plus two or three good ITA events. Its a decent schedule.

Re: Pac 12

KK/Sabs did NOT receive a USO doubles WC. Unreal! Wonder what the story is - I really hope they forgot to apply or something, because otherwise it's pretty embarrassing for the USTA to snub the most accomplished college team of all time.

Doubles wildcards:

1. Mallory Burdette/Taylor Townsend
2. Jill Craybas/Coco Vandeweghe
3. Lauren Davis/Grace Min
4. Martina Hingis/Daniela Hantuchova
5. Allie Kiick/Sachia Vickery (San Diego Winners)
6. Melanie Oudin/Alison Riske
7. Shelby Rogers/Maria Sanchez

Re: Pac 12

Hoping the Santamaria/Christian situation gets the coverage it deserves in the coming days. Amanda McDowell is one of my all-time favorites but this is an even bigger snub IMHO.

I helped AM on the pro tour and was cheering for her in college and when she was rehabbing her near career ending injury. This is a travesty and completely wrong. They gave Long/Andersun a wc in 2007 and not them? I have zero ties to the situation and this really bugs me. Politics. And pluskota/cako need a team to withdraw to get in the draw. Way to be pro college usta.

Re: Pac 12

Well, zootennis story does at least confirm that KK/Sabs failed to apply for the WC. Still I place most of the blame on the USTA - it is pretty embarrassing that they were not even familiar enough to realize that the most accomplished collegiate team of all time had not applied. Goes to show that even with the new USTA collegiate team, the USTA's recognition and support of college tennis is disjointed at best.

Unfortunate news out of New York today, with the word that Sabrina Santamaria and Kaitlyn Christian, the USC pair who won all three collegiate majors this year, including the NCAA title, did not receive a wild card into the women's doubles at the US Open. Santamaria and Christian, not knowing they needed to apply to the USTA for a wild card, didn't, and the oversight wasn't noted by anyone at USTA Player Development when the time came for deciding US Open wild cards.

Thanks for the link...I had to vent on twitter...so disappointed that USTA fell asleep on this. Should have been an automatic W/C for winning NCAA. I doubt other countries would overlook this kind of thing.
3 majors and no W/C. I understand if this was Wimbledon, Australian, or French Open...but not US Open
