NCAA Champion for 2 yrs in a row,

I believe Patty Fendick made the top 20; Alycia Moulton also may have cracked the top 20 and Beth Herr probably came close. Fendick was a superb player, as was Moulton, who possessed a big baseline game and an able volley.

Wake Forest is a college in North Carolina. It's pretty good academically and competes in the same conference as Duke.

OMG KELLY MCCAIN IS #1?! She looked TERRIBLE when I saw her play against Allison. Maybe she was just nervous that day, I really don't know. She's nothing spectacular anyway, she just lobs every ball back.

I'm a little surprised about Amber Liu..thought she would be at least top 5.

Amber is from CA, she won US Hardcourts 2001 I think. Not impressed by her at all. Nothing spectacular. Just a solid baseline game. If you covered her face, she would look like most of the low level girls in the top 200 if that.

In general the college girls suck compared to the WTA players. Even the very best college players like Irvin and Osterloh and Bradshaw are only marginal players on the tour.

The exceptions - Raymond, Fendick, a couple of others in the past and maybe now Granville, can be counted on one hand (and this is out of hundreds of Division 1 players that had thoughts about a pro career). I think the WTA girls just get used to working a lot harder since they play for themselves and their own living. Playing for a team and for someone else (the coach) is not as motivating.

u got that right.......
there aint a lot of junior players in USA now,
which is sad to see.....
good luck to them nonetheless though.......

on the contrary-----most good top 200 players skip college.

See Harkleroad, Shenay Perry, Reeves, Safina, Casanova ;) and many many foreign players.


I saw the #2 player Agata Ciorouch play. I can't believe she is the #2 player.....she was good, but if she is NCAA #2, they are extremely weak right now.


The NCAA players must be amateurs and not accept any prize money at all from any professional event they play. If they do, they lose eligibility.

Bradshaw, Amber was injured for some time at the end of last year. I'd expect her to finish in the Top 5 at least at the end of the season.

I think Amber made a good choice going to College. At least she'll come out with a degree, & I'm sure she'll play as many pro tourneys as she can (especially during the summer break).

Well she must be decent enough to finish 2001 as National #1 U18...

danker...the usta system of ranking juniors is so stupid that even if she had done nothing all year, after winning nationals she would have still been #1.

She is nothing special. Typical baseliner with no power and no weapons.

BK, a typical baseliner who looks like they are at the lower end of the 200s is still good enough to be top 5 in NCAA. In fact they should be top 5. NCAA's look very weak this year if McCain and Cioroch are top 2. McCain is a moonballer (maybe a good one though if she can be a finalist at a 25K) and despite being powerful, Cioroch moves like molasses out there.

Bradshaw...I don't know how many matches uv seen of Kelly, but she is not a moonballer. She is very good actually, but she has to learn to compensate for her lack of height. She also has to learn to handle the power players. She has alot of variety. She knows how to mix up the pace very well. Her serve is a major problem though...

I guess against Allison that was her gameplan, but she might have fared better just playing her own game.
