Re: USTA Girls Nationals (winner gets WC for US Open)

Going to be interesting to see who steps up here.

Hopefully Gail can live up to her seeding and win this thing but wouldn't be upset with Asia getting the WC.

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

Re: USTA Girls Nationals (winner gets WC for US Open)

Hey guys, so I just got home from todays singles action and there was a lot of good tennis being played today. I figured I would just give you the details on the matches I saw (and the ones I know you guys are interested in).

1. Brodsky def. Stephens 6-4, 2-6, 6-4

First off, the site reported the score wrong, it was actually 6-4 in the third. I was really excited to see this match because I think Sloane is truly something special at 15. This match did not disappoint. Gail came out firing in the first set and her groundies were just painting the lines and although Sloane was very steady from the baseline, there was nothing she could do about Gail's laser ground-strokes. Gail went up 5-2. Sloane held for 3-5, and then broke Gail for 4-5 and then they were back on serve. But Gail got it together to break Sloane for a 6-4 set. The second set was an entirely different story. Gail's usually penetrating ground-strokes were finding the bottom of the net! She was all over the place and really did not play well at all. Thus Sloane's steady play won her the second set 6-2. Starting with the third set both girls were playing very well and there were some amazing baseline rallies. With Gail up 4-3, Sloane was serving and saved several break points to prevent getting broken. Gail then held at love for 5-4. The last game of the match was by far the best. Both girls playing their absolute best. However after saving one match point, a forehand in the net from Sloane gave Gail the break, and thus the match. Great playing girls!

I watched all of this match from start to finish, so I was unable to see any really of the Ahn def. Damico.
However...

2. Ahn def. Damico

I saw of Ahn's match yesterday and she was hitting the ball very well off the ground. Whenever I looked over at this match Damico was always losing the point due to an unforced error. This match was over very quickly and Ahn barley had broken a sweat when I saw her after the match.

3. Falconi def. Guarchi

This match directly followed Ahn's match and was going on during the third set of the Brodsky match. I was not interested in this match as I am not impressed by Falconi. So I cannot comment on this one, however I did hear Guarchi talking after the match about how it was really difficult for her mentally to play Falconi and that that had a big part in her loss.

4. C McHale def. Gibbs (6-3, 6-4)

I left while this match was still in the first set. I was mad I could not see more of it as they have had good matches in the past.

5. Cecil def. L McHale

Ok, biggest of the day! Mchale was up a 6-2, 5-3 and serving!!! I was surprised that McHale even got out to this lead, as i think Cecil is the better player, but once up by such a margin, I thought for sure McHale would close it out. Cecil really took it too another level and showed how good she really can play!

6. Vandeweghe def. Bolender

CoCo was really on today! Her serve was unstoppable, she had one game where she blasted 4 aces in a row. A routine win today for CoCo over a very solid player. CoCo is really playing herself into this tournament.

7. Boserup def. Hampton

This was an absolute shalacking! Boserup was killing her ground-strokes and really pummeling Hampton from the baseline. As usual, Hampton was bitching up a storm. I was really impressed with Boserup, she played very very well today!

8. Muhammad def. Janowicz (6-2, 6-1)

I did not see any of this match

More reports tomorrow!

You didn't miss much, Robert. It was every bit as one-sided as the score indicated. It looks like a Muhammad-Vandeweghe semifinal Saturday, and I won't be able to see it.

By the way, Patrick McEnroe was there today.
