Re: 2012 USTA National Championships (San Diego, CA) | August 05-12

Totally forgot that this tournament was going on until now... I'll be an active participant now that I'll be subscribed to the thread! Would love to see Vicky, Allie, Krista, or Sam win this. Also I think Gabbie's results have finally gotten to the point where they are worrisome. It's like she has forgotten how to win, when that's all she was doing last year. Her results have nosedived significantly.

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

16 (2) Samantha Crawford d. Alyssa Smith 7-6(8; 6-1
16 (7) Brooke Austin d. Lynn Chi 6-3; 2-6; 7-6(2)
16 (8) Jamie Loeb d. (17) Caroline Doyle 6-1; 6-4

So close Lynn.

Go Sam!

Re: 2012 USTA National Championships (San Diego, CA) | August 05-12

Fifth Round

(1)Krista N. Hardebeck d. (17)Louisa Chirico 62 61
(6)Chalena Scholl d. (17)Liz Jeukeng 62 61
(3)Alexandra J. Kiick d. (17)Taylor L. Davidson 62 64
(11)Jennifer E. Brady d. (5)Sachia Vickery 63 62

(8)Jamie M. Loeb d. (17)Caroline Doyle 61 64
(17)Victoria Duval d. (4)Mayo Hibi 76(5) 46 64
(7)Brooke I. Austin d. Lynn Chi 63 26 76(2)
(2)Samantha D. Crawford d. Alyssa G. Smith 76(8) 61

Jennifer Surprising win and scoreline.

Chalena seems to be in good form, can she push Krista? I think Kiick should win easily but the other three quarterfinals are all pretty up in the air for me. Anybody else? Thoughts?

My hope is for Vicky or Allie! I don't think Brooke Austin is ready for US Open MD... her game has such little margin for error and she can be very erratic. Chalena has been owned by Allie lately, so I favor her chances to make it to the final.

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

Also, very surprising loss for Krista. I think it's clear that college was most definitely the right option for her... especially since her future Stanford teammates are killing it on the pro circuit this summer.

The final will be between Duval and Kiick! Great opportunity for both girls. Thin both of them have a lot of potential.

Vicky Way to go!!! I think it's safe to say she is back on track after what I think was an injury kept her from playing until May of this year. Hope she gets a decent draw at the Open!

Allie A QWC (which the runner up usually gets, right?) is probably better for her (and most of the girls in this tournament) anyways.

^ I feel like before her injury Duval was on track to be our best junior. I would say she is a better player than Kiick from what I have seen.

This year she beat Townsend and won the ISC, so
I did in fact see her earlier this summer in Raleigh.

And Duval also just demolished Townsend dropping only three games.
