Unless you follow college tennis religiously, it's hard to keep up with all the dual matches that are being played. Thus, to make things easier and have a better context for predicting matches for the NCAA team championships I decided to keep a thread of the "matches of the week." We'll define matches of the week as top teams (top 20 or big upsets) facing each other.

Last week, No. 7 Northwestern faced off against No. 15 William and Mary. I thought it would have been a much closer match but Northwestern really blitzed the Tribe.

This Friday, UCLA takes on Baylor should be a close one.

#7 Northwestern 7, #15 William and Mary 0
Singles:
No. 1 - #2 Maria Mosolova (NU) def. #12 Megan Moulton-Levy (W&M) - 2-6, 6-3, 10-3
No. 2 – #9 Georgia Rose (NU) def. #83 Kat Zoricic (W&M) - 6-3, 3-6, 10-6
No. 3 - #20 Samantha Murray (NU) def. #55 Ragini Acharya (W&M) - 6-0, 6-4
No. 4 - #99 Nazlie Ghazal (NU) def. Klaudyna Kasztelaniec (W&M) - 6-3, 6-0
No. 5 - #68 Lauren Lui (NU) def. Magdalena Bresson (W&M) - 6-0, 6-1
No. 6 - Suzie Matzenauer (NU) def. Lauren Sabacinski (W&M) - 6-1, 6-2


Doubles:
No. 1 - #7 Lui/Murray (NU) def. #46 Moulton-Levy/Zoricic (W&M), 8-5
No. 2 - Conill/Rose (NU) def. Acharya/Bresson (W&M), 8-6

That's a really good win for Vanderbilt. They should be a No. 9-12 kind of team slightly ahead of William and Mary like team. Growing pains for Notre Dame, as they graduated they're No. 1 and No. 2 players last year.

Hmm, I wonder why Rafael wasn't playing singles?

I just found this out the other day. But apparently Kali Krisik is the niece of head coach Jay Louderback and while I don't expect favoritism (his daughter is also on the team but is not really in the line-up) you would think that Rafael probably could have won at the No. 6 spot and won the dual.

I was looking at Krisik's record (to see why she's ranked No. 89) and while she was 9-2 in the fall she had no wins over a ranked opponent. Rafael went 5-3, but unless she was injured you got to believe that Rafael is much better than Krisik.

Here's hoping the rain holds up at Stanford tomorrow. Due to rain canceling matches, Stanford will host Fresno State tomorrow in their opening dual match. It looks like it might be rained out though but here's hoping it doesn't. Should be an interesting match given that it's Stanford's first dual (it's technically Fresno State's first but they played hidden duals at Cal two weeks ago).

This would be a good time if ever for Fresno State to upset. They have a good No. 1-3 (4) line-up not to mention the current No. 1 doubles team and another solid No. 29 doubles team.

I wonder if Fresno State will go bush league again and stack like they did against USC last year (despite beating USC 4-3, USC filed a complaint and the ITA concluded Fresno State had stacked).

Slightly off-topic, but does anyone know if No. 4 Ani Mijacika is coming off an injury because right now Clemson is putting her at No. 3 singles?

Stanford leads Fresno State 1-0 but it's raining and I doubt the dual will be finished. Looks like Stanford is going with the following singles line-up: No. 1 Barte, No. 2 Nguyen, No. 3 Burdette, No. 4 Durkin, No. 5 Deason, and No. 6 McVeigh.

Barte is the first freshman to play No. 1 singles since Amber Liu.

Maybe Rafael just isn't playing that well right now? I still think that the coach needs to put her in and give her a shot, especially with these recent results.

Stanford putting up a slightly different line-up against UC Davis which makes me wonder if they were a little more than afraid of Fresno State. In doubles they moved up Durkin/McVeigh from No. 3 to No. 2 replacing Deason/Nguyen. As for singles, they moved Barte from No. 1 to No. 3 behind Nguyen and Burdette. I'm not saying they stacked...it's just a coincidental flip flop.

Big match this weekend, Georgia Tech vs. Northwestern. Maya Johansson hasn't played in any of the duals so far although she did play the NCTC tournament. I wonder if she's injured or having eligibility problems (I doubt the later but you never know).

Northwestern takes the early 1-0 lead despite being down early in doubles in all three spots. It's kind of crazy how everyone in singles is ranked except for one player.

I do think it is a big win for Duke but if I were Florida I wouldn't be shaking in my boots too much. The dual was originally scheduled to be played outdoors, going indoors favors Duke. Second, Srebrovic is still out with an injury. When she gets healthy that makes Florida much stronger no matter where she'll play in the line-up.

Lastly, do we really believe Iyer is their No. 1 player? Something smells funny.

right now, i'd say my rankings would be:

2. nW
3. duke
4. florida
5. UCLA
6. Cal
7. Stanford
8. baylor

13. vanderbilt?
14. fresno?
beyond this its really hard to categorize. it's really a shame that USC is underachieving again this year. I relaly think they should fire their coach and get a new one. He just doesn't get the team through clutch situations. and in college, i chalk that all up to coaching. they've lost soooo many close matches to stanford, ucla, florida and miami the past few years, when on talent a lone, they should've won quite a few of them, particularly last year and 2 years go.
Also it's relaly amazing to me how Gtech has come on out of nowhere. They were not a program of ANY note before Kristi miller came on, and that was 3 years ago. i mean at the end of 2004 season, before miller came on, they wre ranked 40!!!
when mmiller was a freshman and played #1, they finished that year at #5!!! and since then they've won 2 national indoors and a national title. Really amazing to me. I wanna know what their coach is doing.

That's a really good win for Vanderbilt. They should be a No. 9-12 kind of team slightly ahead of William and Mary like team. Growing pains for Notre Dame, as they graduated they're No. 1 and No. 2 players last year.



I just found this out the other day. But apparently Kali Krisik is the niece of head coach Jay Louderback and while I don't expect favoritism (his daughter is also on the team but is not really in the line-up) you would think that Rafael probably could have won at the No. 6 spot and won the dual.

I was looking at Krisik's record (to see why she's ranked No. 89) and while she was 9-2 in the fall she had no wins over a ranked opponent. Rafael went 5-3, but unless she was injured you got to believe that Rafael is much better than Krisik.


You might want to take back what you have said about Krisik. I think she has more that earned her spot. She has lost 1 match. Check out her record. Her playing has nothing to do with her uncle being the coach, I can assure you of that. She won against Southern Florida beating their only ranked player. This was really a slam to both Jay and Kali. I hope you will look at the results from today (She won the match for them today against Wake Forrest). As far as Rafael goes, find out how they do against one another in practice. By the way, Rafael is not injured and has not been. Nothing against her, Kali has more than earned the spot and that is why she is there. Thank you.

By the way, Rafael is not injured and has not been. Nothing against her, Kali has more than earned the spot and that is why she is there. Thank you.

In my original post I said I didn't expect favoritism so I'm not slamming anyone. My reasoning for what I stated earlier is that most people would find it odd that a "blue chip" player is not in the starting line-up during her freshman year. Yes, maybe she's not as good as they thought, or she's struggling with the college game. But highly touted players (in tennis) almost always break into the line-up their freshman year unlike other scholarship sports. And while there are very good players on the ND team (Buck, Ciobanu, Rielley, and now Tefft who's playing hot) I don't think their depth is so deep that it would require a blue-chip to sit out.

One thing that I've never liked about college tennis is the "order of strength" line-up. No one sees the results of practice matches and thus I believe you're never certain as to which players are actually better than others. I'm not singling out ND here. I think many schools, even some of my favorites, could potentially be accused of stacking during duals. While I don't particularly like the way college rankings are structured, I do wish that the singles line-up had to be ordered according to ranking as to create a systematic way of ordering singles players. I think it would make things more transparent.

And now a slightly off topic response to the rankings. While I understand the order of strength on a team, you have to believe one system (either the rankings or order of strength) is messed up if your only ranked player is at No. 6? Yes I understand the many factors involved (ie who you won/lost to in duals, how many matches you played, etc.) but you got to admit it's odd.

Lastly, I also have a problem when the player above you in the line-up has a poor record and you're on a multiple win streak yet you still play behind. Yes you might not be able to beat that person during a challenge match and that's why you play behind them but again there is no transparency in challenge matches.

This is not the Juniors anymore. Once these girls get to college, they are all on a level playing field. Some players peak in the juniors due to hours of play and practice. Others rise when they are on the same playing field. There are players that were top in the juniors that are no longer at the top. I am just saying that you need to check out the facts. You are off base, but that is your opinion. Jay has proven himself as a very smart and great coach. Believe me, he knows what he is doing. Credit is due to a player that has one all but one match.

I never said that she should be playing instead of Krisik. As you have made clear, Krisik has been playing very high quality tennis this season, so there is no reason for her to be sitting out. I was just wondering why Rafael, one of the top recruits in the country, wasn't in the line-up. Notre Dame has had a solid season so far, so Coach Louderback obviously knows what he's doing. Please don't come in here and jump on anyone. We are just trying to have a discussion about college tennis.

I kept my first response to you without any personal attacks because this is a discussion board where tennis is the topic at hand not jabs to other posters. In accordance, I will continue to not personally attack and what you choose to do is up to you.

Again, nobody said Krisik didn't deserve to play. At only the second dual match of the season, posters were wondering where Rafael was. Injury was a possible answer because let's face it unlike the pro tour it's very difficult to find out when someone is injured. Another answer is maybe Rafael's game doesn't translate as well on the indoor surface seeing how ND is an indoor team. It seems like you have some insight into the ND team, which would have been helpful a month ago when we were wondering what had happened. No one is arguing with you although you seem to think we are.

In the spirit of discussion, do you think Krisik should move up to the No. 5 position given that Potts has gone 6-6 in 2008?

Sorry if it seemed I was rude. I did not mean it to be. I guess the personal stuff was what bothered me. I did not respond in order to jab, just clear up some things.
The ND team lost two very strong players in both singles and doubles. The Thompsons were great girls on and off the court. ND is now a young team and working on rebuilding. As far as Kali moving up, that is in the hands of the coach and I leave it up to him. With Women's tennis, who knows day to day who should be playing where. Have a good day. Thanks.

Wow that is a shocker. Georgia has really impressed me, especially given that they only have 6 girls on the team. Did they play outdoors? If it went down to Flower, she has admitted to having mental problems so I'm not too shocked that she left a 5-2 lead slip. It's kind of ironic because at the Indoors she pulled some clutch wins and thought she had "conquered" her nerve.

NW defeats DU 5-2 but match was very close , from doubles on down. DU #4 player retired and that coulda swung the match. The #2 match was played onlly in superTB b/c the match had already been clinched..
Florida beats texas 5-2.
USC beats ASU 5-2 w/ their #1 out of the lineup. I hope nelson plays the stanford and berkeley matches. not for the win, but just for depth.
I'd still keep the rankings w/ only a few changes with all of weekend's action taken into account.

1. nW
2. Gtech
3. duke
4. florida
5. georgia
6. UCLA
7. Cal
8 Stanford
9. baylor
10. miami
11. north carolina
12. southern cal
13. vanderbilt?
14. fresno?

this weekdn is huge for the pac-10, as USC/UCLA both play Stanford/Cal. So cAL vs Norcal.

Are you predicting this week's rankings? Or is this what you think the rankings should be? Rankings next week should be Georgia will take No. 3 after taking out Georgia Tech and UCLA was just bounced by Arizona State so they'll fall. I would still put Duke behind Florida. I still think they might rank Stanford ahead of Cal.

1. Northwestern
2. Georgia Tech
3. Georgia
4. UNC
5. Florida
6. Stanford

I think USC's 6-1 win over Cal was a lot closer than Cal's 6-1 win over Stanford. It was a good performance by Cal but I wouldn't say destroyed seeing how if they pulled off those three 3 setters they would have won. The only two that looked like a straight set affairs were No. 1 and No. 6. The problem with Cal is that their No. 4-6 is stronger than they're No. 1-3. Their top 3 are weak compared to most teams. I'm surprised that Cal won the doubles point.

Not to take anything away from Lindsey's win today but Babos has really played like crap since the start of the new year. Her only win really has come over Burdette who is the only player who's having a crappier new year. Babos is 4-6 in 2008 and Burdette is 4-6 with the tiebreaker being their match which Babos won.

Tennis Ace,
I'm gonna respectfully disagree. I don't see how Cal's 6-1 win over stanford was more dominant than USC's over Cal. I mean USC won all 6 singles matches against stanford, whereas Cal won the doubles and Stanford's #2 killed Cal in singles. USC had 3 2 set wins over Cal in singles, whereas Cal had 2 2 sets over Stanford. And of the 3 set wins USC had, 2 of them were not close at all, only Fink's was..

I think what we're seeing right now in NCAA tennis is Georgia Tech/Northwestern clearly at the top and then the grouping of North Carolina/Florida/Georgia/Baylor and then a bunch of teams on the same level Stanford/Miami/Cal/Duke/Notre Dame/USC/UCLA/. The No. 6-13 teams are very close together competition wise.

I def think that The pac 10 teams (Cal, USC, Stanford, ucla) are on par with baylor, florida, UNC, baylor, perhaps even better. THe main main problem with rankings is so much is based on results from the indoor tournament, when a lot of intersectional play happens. BUT all the pac 10 teams with exception of stanford HATE indoors, bc they don't practice on it, don't care for it. simple as that. you can look at the results. last few years, even when cal and ucla would stink p the indoor tournament and then manage to beat the supposedly better east coast teams when they'd meet up in ncaa or later in the season.
And UCLA, i definitley think they'll be a force to reckon with, top 4 team once schnack/mcgoodwin comes back. when that happens, i'd rank UCLA/USC/cal/stanford/ASU in that order.

So Stanford Def usc 4-3.
Cal def UCLA 4-3.
So the record for the top 4 teams in pac 10 against each other
Berkeley 2-1 (beat stanford, ucla, lost usc)
UCLA 1-1 (beat stanford, lost cal)
SC 1-1 (beat cal, lost stanford)
Stanford 1-2 (bt SC lost cal, ucla)
SC's match with UCLA will determine the order. I think SC will beat this handicapped UCLA team fairly easily, but when schnack and mcgoodwin come back, i don't know

I mean USC won all 6 singles matches against stanford, whereas Cal won the doubles and Stanford's #2 killed Cal in singles. USC had 3 2 set wins over Cal in singles, whereas Cal had 2 2 sets over Stanford. And of the 3 set wins USC had, 2 of them were not close at all, only Fink's was..

I think I'm looking at it from a more historical angle/in terms of line-up quality. In terms of history, Cal has pretty much always been fourth fiddle in the Pac-10. You never hear of girls that want to go play at Cal (compared to the Pac-10). Second in the Cal-Stanford rivalry, Cal was 7-58 heading into this match. Very lopsided. In the Cal-USC rivalry it's a little closer at 29-24, but Cal has always been pegged behind Stanford, USC, UCLA. In other words, it's more normal for them to lose than to win against these teams.

In terms of line-up, even though Cal has the most seniors on any of the Pac-10 teams I think their line-up is the weakest of Stanford, USC, UCLA. The main reason being that most of their players aren't battle tested, meaning most of them have never played that high in the line-up in their career. Visico mainly played No. 5-6 her first three years and is now at No. 3. Ilcinkas mainly played No. 6 and is now at No. 4, and Bobusic who rarely played singles her first two years is now at No. 5. Throw in the fact that you have a freshman playing at No. 2 who doesn't seem to be as good as Fodor/Henkel of the past.

USC and Stanford have freshman too and you might be saying players that aren't "battle tested" but the difference goes back to reason No. 1. Because Cal is seen as the fourth fiddle, it doesn't get the same "star quality" recruits. The other schools have better quality players up and down the line-up. For example even though I hate Burdette, does anyone really believe her playing No. 5-6 last year behind Deason? Of course not she's a much better player combined with her game and her international experience and she's groomed to play at the top of the line-up.

Maybe dominant wasn't the right word. But I think everyone can agree that most people don't see Cal on the same tennis prestige level as Stanford/USC/UCLA. It doesn't have the same tennis dynasty as the other three. Hopefully this can change in terms of getting top US talent, but until then Cal will be a mix of international talent

I def think that The pac 10 teams (Cal, USC, Stanford, ucla) are on par with baylor, florida, UNC, baylor, perhaps even better. THe main main problem with rankings is so much is based on results from the indoor tournament, when a lot of intersectional play happens. BUT all the pac 10 teams with exception of stanford HATE indoors, bc they don't practice on it, don't care for it. simple as that. you can look at the results. last few years, even when cal and ucla would stink p the indoor tournament and then manage to beat the supposedly better east coast teams when they'd meet up in ncaa or later in the season.
And UCLA, i definitley think they'll be a force to reckon with, top 4 team once schnack/mcgoodwin comes back. when that happens, i'd rank UCLA/USC/cal/stanford/ASU in that order.

I only put Baylor in the group ahead because of their match with UCLA. Yes UCLA wasn't at full strength but they did sweep the top 4 courts. I love how Florida just ignores the Indoors now. As for UNC, I think their singles is underrated.

Now to further expand on the computer rankings and how it's more favored for the Eastern teams besides their preference for Indoors. Stanford's dominance in the past has hindered the rankings for Cal, UCLA, USC. Rankings are based on the current rank (as opposed to the rank when you beat them) of the teams you beat. Before this year, no one would beat Stanford thus resulting in USC, UCLA, Cal from getting a ranked win.

I believe that because the Pac-10 is a little smaller than the ACC and SEC and geographically further away in proximity to other top schools, the Pac-10 is forced to have a season that is more insular than the Eastern teams. In the Pac-10 the top schools play each other twice. This doesn't happen very often for East Coast teams unless they meet at Indoors or they actively schedule it. The scheduling though usually doesn't happen every year though unlike the Pac-10. Roughly there are 4 high ranked teams (top 12) in the Pac-10 while on the East (because of proximity) they are able to face many top ranked teams. Thus the East teams are able to trade wins and ranking points as opposed to the Pac-10 teams which is boxed in. Add that in recent past Stanford was a juggernaut in the Pac-10 that never lost and your chances to go up the ranking is contingent on winning against those 2 teams.

Someone said it best last year I forget who but in the Pac-10 they basically beat up on each other and are under-ranked going into NCAA. The Pac-10 usually does well (like last year at NCAA's) and upsets "higher ranked teams," who in actuality shouldn't be ranked that high. But are because of scheduling.

I still think it's fishy that Barte plays over Nguyen. Sure Barte could have beaten Nguyen in a challenge but I have a feeling that the line-up wasn't according to strength before or the order isn't right now. But whatever. I'm more pissed that Burdette clinched the win.

So Vanderbilt loses to South Carolina and then turns around and beats GT? They obviously have some talent, especially at the top of their line-up, and, with some consistency, could mature into a top team. While this is disappointing for Tech, they lost close matches at 1 and 2, so it could have gone their way. I think that NCAAs will be very interesting this year.

Even more impressive considering Duke was playing w/o their #3 player elizabeth plotkin, and georgia tech was with their FULL lineup. This season in womens college tennis is really up for anyone to grab.

Georgia tech beats UNC 5-2.
Duke really looks to be the best team in ACC. i'm sure they'll be able to beat clemson and miami and UNC as well. They also beat Florida back then. They could be getting a top 4 seed with Northwestern, florida and ....the last one is totally open, baylor? ucla? stanford? georgia tech?

I'm shocked that Arizona State upset Stanford. Haha and it looks like Burdette lost the deciding match. She sure is paying for those comments earlier in the season. I'm really surprised that Arizona State was able to sweep doubles, granted Stanford doesn't have great teams but the score lines suggest that it was all ASU.

Should be a tight one between Arizona State and Cal tomorrow. I think ASU needs to win the doubles point to stand a chance of another upset.

Is Plotkin injured? I think its obvious to everyone that Iyer isn't Duke's top player. Duke obviously suffered without Plotkin in the line-up. As you said they have weak No. 5 and 6 players.

With the spread of talent in NCAA tennis now, it's no longer about having good No. 1-3 players. The schools that are doing well now have strong No. 4-6 players. Essentially the top teams now split No. 1-3 as opposed to the past where they swept No. 1-3. As a result being able to sweep No. 4-6 is more important.

I think Cal is a good example of not necessarily having the strongest No. 1-3 but a very solid No. 4-6 that gets the job done almost every time.

I know its only the 2nd matchup for pac10 teams standings, but i'm saying overall, in the grand scheme of things, the first round is still important, for rankings, measure of a team's true abilities, etc. ex, asu bt stanford 4-3 the second time around, if you only count that, then they are better than stanf. but they lost to stanf 1-6 the first time, so are they really better? its more debatable.

From a funny point of view (and looking after the overall well being and ranking of Pac-10 teams), it's actually better if they split matches as opposed to winning both times they meet. Thanks to the way the rankings are set-up, you actually want to "root" for the teams that you beat so that your ranking can go up.

It'll be an interesting ASU-Cal match up tomorrow (I wish there was live stats/video). Last time they played Cal won 5-2, winning the doubles point. The two loses came at No. 5 and 6, when Cal used it's reserve players (their No. 7 and 8) due to injury. But then again, ASU lost to Stanford 1-6 last time so I think all bets are off.

ASU can't come up with two upsets in two days, losing to Cal. ASU played without their No. 2 doubles player Leitch (also in singles). I wonder why Cal didn't snag McKenna, who expressed interest in playing for Cal. She certainly would have been a better addition than Rachael Dillon. I imagine McKenna was not recruited because Coach Brogan wanted Coach Jensen to build her own team starting with the current freshman (Brogan felt that if she recruited the freshman, it would be unfair to Jensen which makes sense).

California goes 1-1 this weekend while Stanford comes back with a 2-0 weekend. Schnack played against California but was absent from the Stanford dual match (although Deason was out for the UCLA match). Cal was playing without its normal No. 3 doubles team. Should be an interesting final dual against Cal and Stanford. Whoever wins the Cal-Stanford dual, wins the Pac-10 title (with UCLA a chance to share the Pac-10 title if they beat USC).

Yes, she still plays for Tulsa. She is a junior, so she will probably play one more season after this one. It looks like she has been playing mostly number three singles this year.

The team is currently ranked 48 in the country, and the won their conference championship, which is a great achievement!

Here is the team website with much more information:
