Right. I was just reiterating that I was making my assertion that UCLA is so deep based on a healthy lineup. Hopefully most teams are healthy!

Re: 2014 National Team Indoors

I'm sort of rooting for a UCLA/Cal final.

I agree. Although Ray hasn't been great this season so the doubles and #6 is vulnerable for UCLA.

Certainly wouldn't be too surprised to see Cal in the final! Not having to deal with Florida, UCLA, or USC is a relief for them.

Beat you to it. I want a UCLA/Cal final. I think the UCLA/USC winner makes it to the final in the top half. Cal or Duke will make it from the bottom half.

That's damn tough I'm not sure who matches up "well" with UCLA. I don't think there's a team in this tournament who would be favored in 3 singles matches against UCLA.

Edit: Granted if Kyle doesn't play then UCLA is a little more vulnerable.
I really think Duke is the only team with the depth to challenge UCLA, if Scholl and Kahan are healthy and playing to their capabilities. Capra and Scholl are a very solid 1 and 2, Goldfeld and Mar once again a very solid 3 and 4 and then two of Kahan/Jodoin/Smith/Mulholland rounding out the top six. I would probably have Jodoin at 5 and Kahan at 6 but really any of those girls could play those positions.

With that being said, I think UCLA defeats UF and Duke defeats Cal in the semis with UCLA winning the title over Duke.

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

Interesting that Lauren Embree is with Florida in Charlottesville. Is she serving as a volunteer assistant while recovering from surgery?
