I have to wonder if UF was trying to stay discipline as they said or was there something said that lit their fire, especially after Embree's tweet:

Lauren Embree ‏@lembree888 1h
nothing worse than being disrespected
She prolly read fantic's posts

Really impressed by Oklahoma's #1 doubles team, though they were a bit annoying!
Was hoping for Sahagun to clinch the match! She had the chance and it would really help out her confidence, but Vlad came through first.

Now onto Georgia!
Richie is a very good dbls player, was fortunate to watch her play at UCLA last season or something.
GL against UGA! Go Sundevils!

No solidarity when it comes to your rival school. If it's out of the conference, I'll root for USC. If it's within, I have to root against.
I thought we were all against Stanford

I'm debating too, but will probably go anyway 'cause I'm curious about Ok. St., I don't think I've seen them before..?

I'm down the street from Lakewood but I have no interest in the juniors. I want to go see Kyle, Chanelle, and Cat play...and maybe to bid a farewell to Pam's last match at UCLA.

Then you MUST watch it, because some players might end up at UCLA
Consolation matches starts at 8am, plenty of time to watch some Quarterfinals too before heading
to UCLA

You can later watch KATZ/MANASSSE in action and fear USC and CAL next season

Besides, Mayci JONES is alive in both, and her sister is McCall

Xepoleas has interest in UCLA(among other teams, such as USC ), last time I checked at TRN. She is tall and has a big game; sophomore now (jumped one year methink). But other players might aspire too

I just want to explain my statement above.

For teams in the Big West Conference the tennis playoffs, meaning lose and the season is over, actually begins in their conference tournament. The exception is earning an NCAA at-large which is rare and very difficult to do.

For schools that are hosting, the NCAA 1st round is no big deal because they're usually playing against a team they should destroy. Playing tennis under the pressure of lose and the season is over doesn't usually start until the NCAA 2nd round for host teams. But for teams in the Big West and other 1 or 2 bid conferences winning in the NCAA 1st round feels more like winning the Super Bowl because they already had to go through 3 rounds of playoff pressure tennis in their conference tournament just to get to that point.

Keep your enemies close


It may have something to do about your 3 or 4 pages of blog with desariofan saying that Embree was inferior to Sabs and that Kyle could take Embree because she's got more bite and doesn't lose 3 setters...

Re: Www 2013 Ncaa Team Tournament

A couple of pics from yesterdays Stanford v Rice match. Last home match for Stacey Tan and Nicole Gibbs. Gibbs, who is only a Junior, is rumored to be turning pro this summer.



This is a crazy photo b/c there is so much glare coming off the court, it looks almost white.



One of the great things about Kristie Ahn is that she is always having a good time out on the court.

urklerlay...great photos! thanks!!!


How did you get that photo of Stacey? That almost looks like she posed...too good to be a random pic


How close were you to Gibbsy on that shot? Given that it was court #1 next to the covered stands, you must have been on the left section when facing the scoreboard. What kind of camera/lens were you using? Nice shot!!!


It would be proper for Gibbs and Ahn to contend for the doubles title, since it may be their last time playing with each other. Remember the time they were volunteering for Nicole's mom marketing event...

This photo reminds of this video and how much fun they look like they're having...
