It just means Stanford has a good problem on their hand. They get a lot of the top Asian blue chip recruits. Isn't it a stereotype that most Asian girls look alike?

I became so accustomed to it that I didn't know how bad it was until I saw the Pac-12 telecast.

I hope they cut the overgrown branches on court#4 through #6, such a distraction.

They need to work on showing all of the matches and not just the top 3 matches. For UCLA's match yesterday, they at least did a good job of giving all matches on courts 1-3 equal air time (court 1 still received the most). They only cut to the back courts when it was match point and that was only once when Kaitlin Ray won.

Are you hinting that Carol can be mistaken for Stacey? Maybe with her back turned and from a far distance, but I think Carol looks a bit thinner, not saying that Stacey was chubby...

I think its a matter of exposure to different ethnicity. For instance, I think Japanese and Korean are distinct.

With Chinese migrating to Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines and Canada, they can be more difficult to distinguish as they become mixed with other ethnicity.

Let me know if there is a suggestion box link to Pac-12. I would certainly comment.

I was a bit puzzled with the Stanford telecast, because Ahn was in control on court#1, more so than the Hardebeck or Zhao.

There was some controversial calls on court#2 and instead of doing replays, they just mentioned seeing it at the corner of their eyes...like that really helped

I think they were just fixated on Ahn.

The opposite happened with the UCLA match yesterday. Brady's match was interesting so that went to it a lot while showing Robin's match. They also showed a good part of Chanelle's match. Chanelle even got interviewed after the match.

Smart interview by Chanelle, not giving away any bulletin material.

UCLA has this and next year to challenge for the NCAA crown with their 3 top juniors (Robin, Chanelle, and Kaitlyn), who by the way just gave up 2 games in that match..

7, not 2. Robin was down 0-5 in the 2nd set. Her opponent kind of figured her out and was getting the ball back in play.

We'll see if Robin stays for her last year or not.

Yeah I saw that...she's apparently getting the royal treatment, as I think she got a electric scooter to get around...tugging KK around campus and dubbing them both as USC's finest benchwarmers

Well, I guess she's the real deal. She won the first set from Scandalis today and was up or tied in the 2nd.

Re: Pac-12 (2014)

It was nice to see Casey Reede get a chance to play, although her and Katz almost lost (4-7) before match was suspended.

I don't think so...no word of it.

I think she just got assigned to be Sabs trojan-sitter.
