Jenifer Widjaja puts the "pro" in Pacific's Pro-Am tournament. :lol:

UCSB is going to Hawaii instead of playing the Cal State Fullerton Intercollegiates this year. Guess the Big West will have to wait until the ITA West Regionals to see the 4 new UCSB players in action.

Markoff / Matzenauer have been bumped up into the pre-qualifying doubles draw. It will be interesting to see how these 2 play together. Will this team put Cal Poly over the top in winning the crucial doubles point in critical Big West matches?

Last year both UC Irvine and Cal State Northridge played in the Hawaii tournament. CSUN had a player from Hawaii, Brooke Doane. UCI had 2 players from Hawaii in Jessica Broadfoot and Heidi Kaloi.
What's UCSB's excuse? :lol:

I wonder if playing in Hawaii was a condition to signing the players from Hawaii or just a perk in the schedule? :lol:

UC Irvine's schedule hasn't been released yet but I figured out they will be playing Hawaii and San Diego State in Hawaii starting 1/29/09.

UCI passed on the ITA Team Indoors beginning 2/1/09. Guess they wanted to stay in Hawaii longer instead of playing against Baylor in Waco, Texas. :lol:

Value to the tennis team and conference ranking... :timebomb:


But I guess it is consistent with the general value set of many kids these days too... 'entitlement' over earned results

Wow looks like you've discovered the "More" link for the smilies. :worship:

Does women's tennis even rank the conferences? If so please show me where to find this information.

1.Even if they have conference rankings this is not like men's basketball where the committee can define their own criteria to selecting the at-large berths. In tennis besides an exception or two, a lower ranked team will not get in over a higher ranked team. They've been doing it strictly by the rankings.

2. Tennis rankings do not work like the baseball or basketball RPI formula where your opponent's opponents are factored in. In tennis it's about your win-loss record and how many other ranked teams you've beaten. The year UCI was eligible for an at-large berth I carefully studied how the rankings worked.

3. In tennis the top 45 ranked teams are almost always locks to get at-large berths. In basketball you can have an RPI of 25 but have your bubble burst because your record against the top 50 wasn't good enough or whatever bogus excuses the selection committee comes up with to get more BCS teams in. Unlike football or basketball, tennis is not biased in favor of the BCS schools. That's why a mid-major school like Pepperdine men can win a national title. A mid-major is not going to win a national title in football or men's hoops.

4. Bottom line is that in tennis conference rankings don't account for anything. However individual team rankings account for everything.

ITA slipped up once last year and for about 30 minutes posted the entire 300+ team RPI.... but I can't find that hard copy anymore. It was stunning at some teams in the 200's.

No, never seen an official conference ranking.

Yes, its all your wins/losses compared to your opponents wins losses. So there is no direct math... just in direct. However, the current rankings do under value direct head to head results when seeding the tournaments (team, singles, doubles)

UCI got in to NCAA's based on one 4-3 win over LB... and rode that for nearly a year because of the 'coaches subjective poll' until the computer kicked back in last March... ironically they did not even reach final that year due to injury that season. It would have been interesting if UCI had held onto big lead vs CP in semis and reached a red hot LB in the finals instead. Would have cancelled out the first win in the computer? :bounce:

LB got hurt in reverse last year... easy wins over Arizona (was in 40's then), Purdue (50's then), USD, Penn (held in 50-60) and UCI (30's when beat but fell to 64). If you ever said a BW team would sweep league and beat UA, Purdue, SDSU, USD and Penn all in the same year... and drop to 50... nobody would have thunk it. But everybody went south last year. :fiery:

I'd say # 42 is locked... last year a number of odd results moved some people out of their usual spots (Oregon, UA, some others back east)... :rolleyes:

Conference ranking no... but playing a 'closed' schedule really helps the bottom half teams in the Pac, Big 10 etc who thus get ranked losses instead of losing to non-conference 35-60 ranked teams. A Top 30 ranked loss is a no harm no foul day. Let some other teams beat up the lower end BCS schools a bit more and watch things swing around. But Wazoo and UO manage to split with each other and artificially bolster themselves.

Personally, I would be curious if the NCAA's had a Final 8 like baseball and softball instead of 16... Do a 4 team regional, a 4 team super regional where you would actually see some real competition in the Round of 32 and 16.... and then an 8 team finals. It would make round 3 and 4 much more open to everyone... and be interesting to see the pressure rise at some of those Top 16 schools that 'make it' every year but never advance.

Seems like a ton of schools pull kids from Rivi doubles if they don't make singles. Travel or maybe just a bad use of an allowable match date to play in single elimination doubles draw?

Pretty sure I saw a couple of LB pairs in the original wait list but withdrawn within a day or two... if I recall correctly. Kind of amazing that nearly 20 doubles teams have been pulled.

Day 1 Big West Observations

1. Why no Jessica Weeks? Does Long Beach State only take 6 players on road trips?
Was she sick, injured ... or is planning to transfer? :lol: Just kidding!

2. Rachel Manasse is playing in the Blue draw and Lisa Sutton is playing in the White draw.
Looks like Manasse has jumped over Sutton on the depth chart.
Props to Manasse for beating Ariane Masschelein who played #3-5 singles for Arizona.

3. Lisa Sutton and Julie Luzar have been relegated to the "bench draw." More than half the players in the White draw are walk-ons or sit on the bench for their teams. Thought would at least get to see Sutton vs Luzar in the finals to see who between them might play at #6 singles.

4. Props to the Long Beach State athletic website for promptly posting their results for Day 1. More than can be said for the host school. :o

5. #64 Hannah Grady (Long Beach State) loses in upset to unranked Alessandra Ferrazi (Minnesota) 6-3, 5-7, 4-6.
Grady did a "Steffi Wong." She won the 1st set but ended up losing in three. :lol:


Day 1 upsets

1. Kristina Doerr (BYU) beats Claire Ilcinkas (Cal) 6-4, 6-2
2. Claire Soper (St. Mary's) beats Abigail Olivier (Fresno St.) 6-0, 6-4
3. Kateryna Nezhura (Pacific) beats Laura Pola (Fresno St.) 6-2, 6-3
- Maybe Fresno St. won't be winning the national title with Olivier & Pola after all. :lol:
4. Sianna Simmons (ASU) beats Stephany Chang (Cal) 6-4, 7-5

Gouci... you are good

# 1 - Someone said minor injury... but no specifics

# 2 - You must have missed where Manasse beat Wetmore 2, 2 in August HB tournament... She advanced to semi's today... Maybe the next Bernhard of Big West? :cool:

# 3 - Just guessing but there is only so much room in each draw... so they worked off similar rankings and experience criteria that you/I do when estimating where to place some draws? :tape:

# 5- Oops... will hurt ranking. Did see where the Minny girl (there # 1) reached finals of their own tourney last week. Better match shape?

Actually looking at the draws, it seems some girls that played last week (Minny, ASU, others) seem to be a step ahead. It's early and it was tight but that is not a good loss. Oh well, I thought we already crowned the BW PofYr to Widjaja anyway?

St. Mary's is going to be really good... Top 40 probably. Added some real strength it appears.

Upsets: Yep, looks on first blush like Fresno two newbies have some work. Danon Beatty is stepping up though. ASU frosh wins tight sets

At Rivi...

Did you see where Blalock has advanced two impressive rounds at Rivi today (beat a ranked and then an ex ranked)? :worship:

I haven't seen Manasse play but when you say the "next Bernhard?" are you saying Manasse has a weak 2nd serve? :lol:
Actually Bernhard came to UCI highly ranked, #5 in NorCal and lived up to her potential. But then again Melissa Bradford was also ranked #5 in NorCal. I guess the quality of the NorCal pool can vary from year to year. :lol:

Yeah Widjaja may be BWPOY but if Grady has a good year the Big West can have 2 participants in the NCAA singles this year.

If St. Mary's added strength is as tough to defeat as it is to pronounce her last name :banghead: then yeah St. Mary's will be really good. If you know how to say it correctly then please sound it out for me because I don't.

Here's a quick Bernhard story you might enjoy.
One time at the UCI library Bernhard sat at the computer one seat over from me. This was when she was a freshman and didn't know many people yet. When she left to use the restroom I sat on her seat. I opened up the internet, went to the women's tennis website and clicked on her name. Then I picked up my stuff and sat at a table off to the side where I would have a perfect view of her reaction. When Bernhard got back what was on her monitor staring back at her was her own roster photo. :haha:
Bernhard looked shocked. She looked around the room like who did this? Someone actually recognized me? Just messing with a freshman.

Stanford really should dominate. Clayton was a last minute entry into the top flight draw after one of Cal's players pulled out. Clayton would have destroyed the Tier II field. Washington is going to have a very dangerous 1-2 combo with Chan and Dy. It'll be interesting to see if St. Mary's can continue the momentum.

Stanford is at 7 scholarships right now, I wonder if they're saving it for this coming year (they would have one scholarship if they didn't). I'm curious if Mallory Burdette is going to join her sister next year at Stanford.

My guess would be Denise Dy.

You're right about St. Mary's. The only one to beat Alex Poorta at the Cal Invitational was Kelcy McKenna, who by the way just won the Riviera All-American tournament.

Some Day 2 results and comments

Walters (UCLA 6) beats Armstrong (LB 2) 5-7,6-4,6-1. Missed opportunity for a big win by Armstrong.
Matzenauer (CP 2) beats Pantic (UCLA 5) 6-2,7-5. Big straight set win by Matzenauer, the new Cal Poly #1?
- As I predicted its Matzenauer vs Walters in the finals.

Borowicz (UCI 7) beats Weeks (LB 5) 6-4,6-1. UCI #8 player for the last 2 years beats LB #5 player for the last 2 years.
Kaloi (UCI 6) beats Doane (CSUN 6) 6-2,6-4. Kaloi wins the battle between 2 players both formerly ranked #1 in the state of Hawaii.
Luzar (LB 7) beats Jaworowski (CSUN 7) 6-4,7-5. Let down by Jaworowski after beating Wong yesterday. Good win by Luzar.
Malec (CP 8) beats Borowicz (UCI 7) 6-1,6-1. Malec makes her case for the 5/6 singles spot in the Cal Poly line-up.
Luzar (LB 7) beats Kaloi (UCI 6) 3-6,7-5,6-1. Good win by Luzar who is making her case to play 5/6 singles for LB.

Davis (CP WO) beats Morgan (LMU 5) 6-2,6-3. Davis making her case for Cal Poly's 5/6 singles spot as well.

Final results

Tier 1. Matzenauer (CP 2) beats Walters (UCLA 6) 7-6,3-6,6-0. In their team's lineup Matzenauer may have passed Blalock and Walters may have passed Pantic.

Tier 2. Maria Malec (CP 8) beats Luzar (LB 7) 2-6,6-3,6-2. Malec and Luzar may be front runners for their team's 5/6 singles slot.

Tier 3. Jocelyn Davis (CP WO) beats Miranda Young (UCI WO) 6-4,6-4. The strong showing of UCI's walk-ons make it more likely UCI's 8th 'ship will be carried over to next year.

- Cal Poly sweeps all 3 singles titles and makes a statement they are the team to beat this season in the Big West. Cal Poly which wasn't expected to have any scholarships open this season has added 2 players in Matzenauer & Davis that look to make significant line-up contributions.

Tier 1 doubles. Pantic/Lind (UCLA) beats Doane/Vertesheva (CSUN) 8-3.

Tier 2 doubles. Salum/Boguet (NMS) beats Sirijiddinova/Jaworowski (CSUN) 8-5. In retrospect Sirijiddinova's results doesn't look as bad having lost to the singles winner Malec in the 1st round and being runner-up in the doubles draw.

Tier 1 doubles consolation. Blalock/Wong (CP 1) beats Manasse/Weeks (LB 3) 8-0. If losing in the 1st round made Blalock/Wong angry, they sure took it out on Manasse/Weeks by shutting them out.

Dillon has really picked things up since her freshman year. I have to take my words back and it looks like she's fighting for the No. 6 spot. She currently has it over Chang but I believe Andersson is out with a wrist injury and could take the No. 6 spot when she comes back.

Why so few Eaters in the draw? Not many from a of other teams too... weird.

1. Most of the UCI team played in the Fullerton tournament. The few that didn't will play at the West Regional. But the majority of the team should play both at the San Diego St. tourney and the UCI Fall Invitational.

2. Seems like Pepperdine hasn't added any new scholarship players yet. Right now they look to have 4 scholarship players and 3 walk-ons. Will they add transfers or international players in January? Or will they just play with 1 or 2 walk-ons in the line-up this year and reload on recruiting for next year?

3. There's a lot of new upper half of the line-up talent coming into the Big West this year. The deepest recruiting class ever for the conference based on my memory. Of those players the 4 from UCSB in a way will be unveiled on Thursday.

New players ready to contribute significantly
Jenifer Widjaja
Suzanne Matzenauer
Eugenia Vertesheva
Nigora Sirojiddinova
Ratchaya Chaichanachaicharn
Natalia Lozano
Michelle Murphy
Rachel Manasse
Julie Luzar
Courtney Byron
Stephanie Hammel

Right now I can potentially see 6 from this list as becoming 1st Team All Big West players in the future.
