Well that's true But I think UCLA is on the way to building a dynasty
But before that they should take care of that dbls, their result is similar to USC last year in this tournament, losing (but give credit to Miami for winning the dbls point)

By the way Gabi and Zoe should take a day off and go fishing or something, to meditate on what happened on the court yesterday

Val(her last Team Indoors) and Ellie(should be a great first experience) should fill the spot to leaven the playing field against Cal, who also has 2 players absent

Re: 2013 National Team Indoors

Mary is on fire 6-1 1st set against Ema.

Veronica Corning is having a decent season so far.

The scoreboard had the wrong players up. Fabikova did not play which meant that Chui (the No. 7 player) was at No. 5 and Estlander (the No. 9 player) was at No. 6.

Without Goransson in doubles and in the singles line-up, Cal is not as solid. She really solidifies the third doubles team. Right now No. 3 is a liability without her...they will almost always lose the No. 3 spot without her. Neither Chui or Estlander or Duranteau have the game to compete at No. 6 against the top teams. They will most always lose.

In addition I'm surprised that they have put Chi at No. 3. Fabikova needs to play No. 3.

Re: 2013 National Team Indoors

Baylor forfeited #3 doubles but is fielding a full singles lineup against the Nebraska?? Don't think I have ever seen that before. Not that they really had much of a chance to win the doubles point with the way Nebraska has been playing, but still...

Re: 2013 National Team Indoors

Why did they match up USC-Cal in consolation? Disappointing to have conference matchups in the consolation draw when it isn't necessary. Seems like they could have easily been matched up with NW & Miami instead.

Totally agree unless there is a conspiracy to keep Pac-12 schools from being highly ranked there is no need to do this (beating up on each other doesn't help your ranking as much as playing other teams that will have a high ranking).

She was kicked off the team and she is now back at home in California. Rumor has it that she will be attending Santa Clara, not sure if she will play tennis there though.

Sam allegedly had an eating disorder and got caught lying to the head coach about several issues. I know she also struggled with the rigorous school load at Michigan.
