STAN lineup order for 2012-3!!??

I'm already bored, I'm not too interested in events I can't attend

So fast forward, on to the next season

As I've said ad nauseam the most interesting topic next season should be STAN's singles lineup order.

What do you think?

Re: STAN lineup order for 2012-3!!??

of course you can, but I don't think it's as interesting as STAN's, doesn't warrant a separate thread? On the other hand STAN's lineup should be a NATIONAL topic, no?

Yes and no. I don't see much effect on the W-L rate the top of lineup no matter how the top 3 are shuffled.

Stanford has given some preference to playing upper classman at the top when of equal level

That's exactly the reason why I said STAN lineup order should be interesting.

Since, they're winning everything anyway

Next season might be quite boring

Re: STAN lineup order for 2012-3!!??

If Kristie Ahn ever gets healthy she will be challenging for the top spot. IMO she is more talented than Gibbs.

Which means that Hardebeck could conceivably be at 4.

2016 Titles:
Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong

Krista at #4

What a 'tragedy'

For her and also for her hapless opponents

Re: STAN lineup order for 2012-3!!??

Well this also assumes Kristie Ahn makes a full recovery... we saw that a long time of recovery did not help her ankle heal, so we can't assume she'll even be healthy to play next season. I am hoping she is healthy for NCAA's and that the boot was just for protection, but we'll see.

How good is Hardebeck's classmate? The one from San Diego?

Re: STAN lineup order for 2012-3!!??

Kostas? She won't be a starter, can't really say..haven't really seen her play for a while, but recent results are not encouraging.
She was pretty good though.

Anyway, about the ONLY way I see other teams beat STAN is to recruit TOP foreign talents That's the 'price' when one team monopolizes top talents

With Kristie Ahn being injured, I am sure they can use someone like Grace Min as an alternate, if she doesn't turn pro

Re: STAN lineup order for 2012-3!!??

Here's an article about Min back in January. She has good grades... I hope she decides to come to Stanford!

Optimism, but Mixed Results, at the Vanguard

Re: STAN lineup order for 2012-3!!??

I thought it was discussed here already, Min is going to Duke if not turning pro.

Don't get your hopes too high

Min going to Duke (if she doesn't go pro) is not 100% but based on talking to the Duke coach I think it's very very very likely
