Yeah, i just noticed that last years cut off was #221. There's a chance she could move up a couple spots as she doesn't have any pts to defend for the next couple weeks. It's going to be very close!

Re: Nicole Gibbs

I wonder if she will turn pro before she graduates college? She seems like she could def be a top 100 player if not higher.

Re: Nicole Gibbs

I really think she should turn pro soon. Most likely after her junior year at Stanford. She really has nothing to prove at the collegiate level, so its time for her to face the big girls.
At least, she can still beat Mal...
I doubt she will lose any points as she started to gain points in July. I think her size may be a factor, but she is not going to be intimidated

Re: Nicole Gibbs

With Flavia Pennetta's withdrawal, Nicole will probably enter Australian QD.

Re: Nicole Gibbs

AO Q1: Gibbs d. Y. Sema 6-4 6-3

It's so nice to see her scalp a win at the AO after being in Australia since X-Mas .

Re: Nicole Gibbs

Way to go Gibbsy! So glad she got the opportunity to play and win a match here! The win will put her just inside the top 200 and hopefully allow her to compete in the French Open and Wimbledon quallies!

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

Re: Nicole Gibbs

Interesting article providing the insight of the financial risks of being an amateur, funding a 3 week trip to Australia using personal funds, and the challenge to maintain a course load.
I would have thought that her scholarship at Stanford would have allowances to cover her expenses for tennis tournaments.
