USO Q1: (WC) Taylor Townsend def. (11) Arantxa Parra Santonja 76 63

Tara Huge stuff, even considering Parra's dubious form.
Townsend made it into the SF of 50k recently as a QWC, that's probably why she is even playing USO. Biggest surprise so far (or tied with Sacha Jones' win)

After an abysmal showing by the Americans yesterday, it is looking a bit better today.

Taylor
Managed to close it out in the end. Very impressive win, but she's been having pretty great result these past few months (SF at 50K, SF at U18s Nat Champ beating Keys before losing to eventual winner, Davis).

Re: USO Q1: 15 y.o. Taylor Townsend def, [11] Parra Santonja 7-6(2) 6-3

Just finished watching this match in person and Townsend is the real deal. No injuries or poor form from Parra, she was just beaten fair and square.

Townsend is a black girl, lefty, and hits the absolute crap out of her groundstrokes. We're talking Lucic/Rezai level ball bashing, and she hit some very nice volleys as well. She needs to try and maintain a better level of consistency because she lost most of the rallies that went more than a few shots due to errors, but I think she's the best shot at being the American hope that US tennis is looking for.

Either El Tabakh or Robson in the next round as well, so she has a good shot at going even farther if she plays like that.

Sounds promising How fast is she? How well does she return? USA already has some powerful, wooden, brainless players (Coco ie.), I hope she won't join them.

But a 15 yo. with a Lucic-like groundies sound so 90s

Edit: And don't move! I want some info on Robin too

Tough to say because she was on the offensive most of the time and not doing very much running. She certainly isn't slow, but I'm not sure if speed is her best attribute either.

Taylor Seems to be the real deal! Thanks for the report CoryAnnAvants#1!!!

Can imagine that Taylor has a pretty complete game, since she is an accomplished junior doubles player already with fellow '96 phenom Gabbie Andrews

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn
