I agree. She's ranked 628 in the world. I guess she will climb a few places.

her game is good against good hitters of the ball. she just needs to keep improving that serve and movement. she'll climb 200 spaces or so w/ todahy's results. if she wins her first round, that'll be even higher.

Exactly. And that is why she shouldn't give the pro tour a try just quite yet I think. She really doesn't know how to play against speedy, counter-punchers to well.

If you check her losses in College, it's normally not against another power player.

Still, great to see her in the main draw.

For a description of Lindsey nelson, she's about 6' tall, maybe 120 lbs max. she swings w/ both hands off both sides, great acurate groundstrokes albeit slightly mechanical in nature. Does not generate tremendous racquet speed but loves to hit angles. Serve is kinda suspect at least when she plays college players. Movement is kinda below average for a pro player simply because she's too skinny and not enough leg muscle. Has good technque on volleys but will swing too often and doesn't feel comfortable moving forward.

Has FITS with players who will slice and top spin moonball deep. but LOVES to hit against pace. When she's playing pros, she'll attack first and second serves mercilessly hitting some awesome returns while she's at it.

Girls who play college tennis do so because, let's face it, they're not good enough (yet, or ever) to make it on the tour.
Very few exceptions to that rule these days. Those college years are prime years for a female tennis player; not so much the guys.

Classic example- Amber Liu,Vilmarie Castellvi. I watched them in the NCAA final a few years ago and really havent done much since.

That's really not always true, and it's impossible to ever prove. Some girls really just would dream of playing college tennis and getting an education and never even consider going pro. For the most part, I would assume it's true though.

But offer someone the change to save hundreds of thousands of dollars and have their education paid for vs travelling around the world slumming it with no friends and maybe just a coach, and you'd be surprised how many american girls would want the college life.

Maybe a Lindsey Nelson won't do any damage on the pro tour but I don't think her goals are to be a pro for any long period of time anyway.

If she does have some success than it will be gravy and perhaps she can rack up a few titles and big wins along the way. If anything, she can tell her grand kids she played the U.S. Open.

It's true though, we don't see too many successess from College to the pros. Lisa Raymond is probably the last great former collegiate star who made it and she is still competing.
