I think you missed Minor vs Smith.

And what makes you think Makarova will beat McPhillips?

Kyle routined Christina in the National :lol: (Krawczyk too

for that matter)

Anyway hope Krawczyk plays doubles here, doubles without her is

no fun :lol:

Apr 11th, 2011, 12:21 PM
Grace with Janet :o I like both.
Katya has a real chance for 2nd round :D She lost in qualies in Carson, hopefully she will win a match here.
Hopefully that Kelsey will defeat Brady :D Chanelle has a good draw, but there will be Kiick in R16. I prefer Herring, I think that she could be easier to defeat :lol: Tsay isn't seed :lol: Echeverria Alam in 2nd round, not easy.
Kyle vs. Desirae :tape:
Chalena vs. Juna :tape:
ohhh no... :o

a lot of good player here :yeah: Hopefully this will be more interesting tournament than Carson.

no OOP(court designation) unlike ISC? :sobbing: THAT was really helpful..

fantic
Apr 12th, 2011, 01:40 AM
I was afraid of this;

the viewing gets progressively more difficult :sobbing:

ALL tourneys should be held at Claremont :o

Krawczyk began to lose(played pretty bad :sobbing: ) after I began to watch :help:

So Kyle wins, winning the 2nd and 3rd 4,0 or something.

What's the agre rule in G12 etc.? They can play it till the day they turn 13?

Born on 1st January 1993 or later can play ITF juniors in 2011.

Born on 1st January 1995 or later can play U-16 in 2011.

Born on 1st January 1997 or later can play U-14 in 2011.

Born on 1st January 1999 or later can play U-12 in 2011.

At least ITF and Tennis Europe rules say so.

At least ITF and Tennis Europe rules say so.

But it seems USA has different rules because no.1 seed in G12 (they don't call it U12) is Sofia Kenin, who was born in Nov 1998...

Yeah. USTA allows players who have not exceeded the maximum age by the last day of the month during which the tournament is scheduled to start.

Tournaments starting in 4/11:
18s born May 1, 1992, or later;
16s born May 1, 1994, or later;
14s born May 1, 1996, or later;
12s born May 1, 1998, or later;

Makarova :help: Bottom half is even weaker now. Ellen should cruise to the final.

On paper, definitely. But she hasn't played that recently, I don't know if she has been injured or not? If not, then definitely she will make the final.

Crawford has such a tough draw. This girl must be so tired! :hug:

Yea definitely. I think that's why it's taken her a little longer to come into her own. Same thing for Kiick actually.

I hope Gabby does better than the 2&1 beatdown Grace gave her in December :scared:

I read somewhere that Kiick is a defensive player which usually translates well in junior but not so much in senior. But then again, looking the WTA condition, she might have a shot.

Crawford, on the other hand, is tall and an aggressive player.

I wasn't :) I expected a blast, and I even enjoyed that comic last game :haha: just uploaded the mps :hearts:

Well Kyle maybe was lucky in that she didn't meet big hitters like Austin, Crawford, (Min) :lol:
She did school (by the score, since I didn't see much) Harrison and Hannah King at Carson, so not unexpected result, really.

Harrison had to serve underhand against McPhillips...She was really injured. But congrats to Kyle.
