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

I've heard Sloane is more or less just a pusher/moonballer. Did she still play that way or does she variation in her game where she goes for winners?

Gail
Mallory
Coco
Julia I thought Jamie might get this, due to Julia seemingly in poor form as of late. I think she could give Asia a run for her money tomorrow.

Coco vs. Asia would be nice though considering these two are apparently not so fond of each other.

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

1. Sloane is definitely not a pusher/moonballer. Although she does not hit the ball as hard as Gail or CoCo, for her stature and age she hits the ball very very well. Perhaps someone might refer to her as a pusher do to the fact that she makes very little unforced errors and keeps the ball in play...but she keeps the ball in play with a very good amount of pace. I think the game-plan against Gail today was to make Gail hit a lot of balls, because as shown by the second set, Gail is prone to making her fair share of unforced errors. With improved acceleration and aggression, Sloane is certainly someone to watch out for. As someone who watches a whole lot of junior tennis, I was very impressed.

2. I am looking forward to seeing the Asia vs. Julia Boserup match tomorrow, because Julia played unbelievable in her match against Hampton. I too think Asia will have her hands full!

3. I am curious as too where you heard the information about the CoCo and Asia not liking eachother? But it is true I have not seem them talk to eachother this whole tournament. Asia has been with her mom (and a few other juniors but primarily faye ) and CoCo has been with her coach. Both very serious about this tournament

4. For all those interested in the CoCo vs. Asia battle (myself included, also I am going to be verrrry upset if Boserup or Cecil ruins my perfect semi) I will be there to document every moment of it upon my return! I am also hoping to take pictures!

Back with more updates tomorrow!

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

In response to questions about the winning doubles team earning a MD WC into the US Open, they do! Jamie Hampton and Melanie Oudin earned that WC last year by winning the tournament. Unfortunately they lost first round at the Open to Chan/Chuang (eventually finalists) 6-1,6-1.

So now for my synopsis of todays matches...

Brodsky Def. Ahn

I only saw the end of this match, but can guess that Gail probably suffered one of her error filled sets in the second to lose it 6-0.

Vandeweghe def. Cecil

Good display from both girls, CoCo was just better on the bigger points

Boserup def. Muhammad

I watched all of this match, and was crushed when Asia lost She had her chances, but unfortuantley Boserup played way to well today. Boserup played amazingly well from the baseline and really put the pressure on Asia. CoCo will have her hands full tomorrow, and I expect a lot of very hard hitting rallies.

Also, news/rumors from around the grounds today is that CoCo Vandeweghe signed a 1 Million dollar contract with IMG.

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

Well done Julia.

I knew this girl had talent...but she's been having some pathetic results on the ITF tour lately. Her vs. Coco should definitely be a good match and I expect the winner of that match to win the final as well.

Mallory
Gail

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

Interesting results. Boserup sure does have up and down results. Too mad for Mallory too

Interesting, I'm hoping to see Coco win this now, as most people are.

CoCo
But I think her chances against Julia are pretty low

Rest in Peace Bally!
