Re: Fall Tournaments 2013

A few interesting tournaments this past weekend to kick off the season:

Duke Fab Four with 3 unflighted draws: https://www.nmnathletics.com//pdf9/2...DB_OEM_ID=4200
Blue Draw Final: #54 Laurente (MIA) def. #33 Kay (UNC) 7-5, 6-4
Black Draw Final: #4[FR] Carter (UNC) def. #16 Oyen (UF) 6-2, 6-4
White Draw Final: #10 Addison (TX) def. #3[FR] Loeb (UNC) 6-2, 6-3

UNC freshman are really good as expected, but Addison is probably the player of the tournament and perhaps establishing herself as a serious contender at All-Americans.

Midland Invitational (TX): http://rc10s.com/womens_singles.html
Final: #29 Guillermo (PEPP) def. #30 Tan (TCU) 4-6, 6-4, (10-6)

Also just saw from this draw that Matea Cutura (DePaul #1) has transferred to Pepperdine - they should be pretty dangerous now.

Re: Fall Tournaments 2013

Cal Nike Invitational is this weekend. Looks like USC even sent a few players to challenge this year (Boren, DeSimone).

Draws: http://www.tennisinformation.com/tou.../draw-3-mf.asp

And the Cal video seems to be working too: http://www.calbears.com/ViewArticle....CLID=208646366

Also, the Furman Fall classic this weekend with some of the stronger southeast teams: http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/...ssic_Draws.pdf

Note to self: Looks like Mary Anne (Macfarlane) Daines got married.

Re: Fall Tournaments 2013

I was there at the Cal Nike Invitational!

Here's my report (no pictures; don't think I know how to pull it off since most of the people there were athletics dept. employees)

Klara
She's the Petra Kvitova in NCAA tennis. She can hit great forehands for her size. The match shouldn't have been that tight, but errors, errors everywhere. When it gets tight, Klara plays SO tentatively. EVERY TIME. I was there 4-5 in the third...they were breaking back and forth. There were some really exciting points in the tiebreaker like when Klara was up at net, attacking (she should've just vollied those times) and Ellie is a great baseline defender. Ellie had mp but lost it, Klara wins with a fh error from Ellie.

It wasn't that interesting, tbh, which is sad. It was a puffball match for the most part. Marquette vs USF was more entertaining.

I saw BYU's Jones' family too.


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

Any idea why Maegan and Denise are not playing?

No.
I don't think they're injured though (from my random sightings of Maegan)

Re: Fall Tournaments 2013

Almost an all Cal semifinal but Fabikova lost to Katie Le. Lynn Chi beat Brynn Boren in straight sets. Pac-12 is going to be fun to watch this season!
