I'm disappointed Pacific didn't win its No. 1 or 2 doubles which I thought would be pretty good. Pacific needs to win the doubles point every time to make up for lack of singles depth if they want to beat ranked teams.

In the words of a Top 10 Pac 10 coach this week regarding $87,000 pro Widjaja... "Shame on the NCAA"

That is an exact quote

Complete joke. Perhaps UCI can get Lindsay to commute up from Laguna D. for the next four years too?

Nothing went right for Pacific on Sunday. They come close to beating UNLV which would have been a big win for the Big West Conference. Because of the rain out on Friday they have to play, with fatigue as a factor, a pretty good New Mexico St. team 30 minutes after playing a tough UNLV team. Pacific's Arens is on the losing side of a 3rd set tie-breaker that would have given Pacific the win.

Instead Pacific essentially defaults the team match because they have to catch their flight. :bolt:
Pacific's chances to get ranked takes a big hit with this loss to New Mexico St. :help:
Now if Pacific beats either UCI or LBS both the Eaters & 49ers' chances of getting an at-large NCAA berth takes a hit because they lost to Pacific who lost to New Mexico St. :banghead: Anytime a ranked team loses to an unranked team they almost need to get a good win by beating another ranked team just to cancel that bad loss out.

First, Pacific has two players... that won't get you ranked. But you might wing someone one day.

Second, I hope they lose every match.... an $87,000 professional starting her college career at age 22 breaks so many rules it is off the chart. The NCAA is a joke... but they prevent some legit 18 year olds from playing in other circumstances.

It's bad enough that Fresno State and now Cal are loaded with 20+ year old first semester pros with $15-30K in prize money... none of whom should be eligible.

But $87,000 is shameful.

I feel bad for Matzenauer, Blalock and anyone else that comes in 2010 or 2011... they have no hope of earning a COLLEGE level league award while this professional hangs around Stockton.

The only hope for those girls is that Widjaja pulls a Chloe Carlotti... plays this year and then asks for transfer to a 'big name football' school located someplace other than icky Stockton...

It is just wrong.... so I am glad they had to Def to catch their flights... seems fair to me.

BUT... you are correct Gouci... UOP could very well screw up the works for Cal Poly, UCI and LB for having any chance to get more than the league automatic...

Though your assumption that Cal Poly is a lock might be a little over the top. If Widjaja and their # 2 were to win singles matches vs Cal Poly... well then it is wide open in that match too.

I'm reposting this in case you missed it the 1st time Form. :lol:

I think you spoke again from memory without doing any homework on this season's Hawaii team. I think Hawaii has potential to be a good team.

- Hawaii returns #1 singles Kobuch who was nationally ranked last year.
- Hawaii returns top 3 singles Korec who was pretty good last year.
- Hawaii picked up Wong, a transfer from Washington huskies.
- Hawaii picked up 3 international freshmen, 2 Germans & 1 Belgian. Including Peter who defeated Stanford's Veronica Li in the fall.

I'm actually more concerned about UCI facing Hawaii than San Diego St.

Last season Bernhard def. Kobuch 2-6,6-3,6-0 in the Hawaii fall tourney. But again Hawaii added 6 new players this season and is much improved.

The SDSU coach must be performing miracles that haven't occured the last two years.

Cause those results at 5 & 6 should be UCI's strength... and maybe they will be later. Everybody has bad days... but that certainly would have been expected to be 2 points for UCI

SDSU soph Colman (a walk on year one)... 4 star peaked at 97 her junior year
UCI soph Kwan.... 5 star peaked at 40 her junior year.. finished at 51
and UCI's Kwan lost the day before to UHw walk on frosh Nafarrette.... 3 star # 161 her senior year

SDSU soph Roxanne Ellison ... 4 star peaked at 76 this past summer after a late run from 102
SDSU senior Kaloi (from Hawaii)... 4 star # 34 her senior year in HS

Again acknowledging it is early and a bad day... they all have them.. but 4-6 should be UCI's strength

Feb 2nd, 2009, 04:39 AM
I didn't expect UCI to win both Nos. 5 & 6 and I did my homework. I thought doubles, and singles 1, 5 & 6 would all be a toss up.

This season Colman has gone 3 sets with blue chipper Melissa Saiontz of Princeton and even Michelle Murphy of UCSB. Colman is a little inconsistent but can be good when she's on. The same goes for the Ellison sisters. Nos. 5 & 6 singles had been an achilles heel for SDSU the last couple of years but if they have shored that up this year they will be tough.

Alyssa Nafarrete is under rated but a good player. She had a low tr.net 3-star ranking but had a USTA national ranking high of #291 in 2007. For comparison the highest USTA national rankings of Luzar was #347 and Manasse #381.

Roxanne Ellison had a USTA national ranking high of #163. By comparison UCI's 5-star Kristina Smith's highest USTA national ranking was #207. So Ellison is also under rated but a good player.

CONGRATS TO GOUCI THIS WEEK

By your team not entering your match scores with College Tennis Online.com (nor did SDSU... and a couple other schools...)
I thought the scores needed to be entered with the ITA. They conduct the rankings. I don't know which team that burden falls on but SDSU didn't have to enter the scores with CTO if they wanted to get ranked. SDSU's Peter Mattera is already on the ITA women's tennis ranking committee for the West Region. :lol:


It doesn't look good for #42 LB v #51 Fl Int'l...
Then I suggest a double header on Sunday. FIU can play Long Beach St. at 9:00 A.M. Then hopefully after a grueling 5 hour match they can drive to & play UCI at 3:00 P.M. :drive:
If FIU has to forfeit doubles & the match to UCI because they have to catch their flight that would be even better.:haha:

N.C. State MOVED UP in the rankings from #49 to #47 despite losing 1-6 to Long Beach St. Not to mention the wolf pack have already lost to #63 Old Dominion 2-5. :cuckoo::cuckoo::cuckoo:

Feb 4th, 2009, 12:13 AM
Gotta agree with your NC State note... there are a couple other odd ones too
Wash St... who are down to just 6 players... are not top 75 .. bad luck but not.
And Oregon... really? Yet holding.
While a couple 45-49 don't belong that high anymore

Wazoo and Oregon must be traditional BCS / Pac10 vote... no fact to it. The bottom half of the Pac would be top half of BW... but not the winner.

Though, UW should be MUCH higher... no respect. A little soft at 5-6 but huge at the top.. should be top 30

Props to Bill & Mary though... I underestimated new team

Sac State is top 40 easily... no love for them



But then again, there are a bunch of schools with new SIDS's not posting scores.

FYI... the ITA pays CTOnline to accumulate all scores. That is where schools are to turn in all results. Been that way for years.

PS... FIU moved their line up all over the place yesterday but with all those Maria's, who knew?

6 at 4
4 at 6
2 doubles to 3 doubles

That coach sets up her line up like she is playing lotto

And sadly it worked... both places she juggled, she got the key points. Oh well, life goes on.

It should never have been an issue.
- Weeks needs to play singles to push the ladder down
- Nobody should ever lose to the FIU chick at 5... and LB did. Up 5-3 in first... and LOST MATCH. And that is the same player who beat UCSB's # 1 in July ITA tourney. What is that person concentrating on cause it ain't tennis?

HUGE UPSET

UCI according to some should have been dropped from the rankings this week. Meanwhile FIU recently defeated #53 Mississippi. To better that FIU then defeated #42 Long Beach St. on the road without the help of FIU's regular #3 singles no less.

UCI walk-on Miranda Young even made a big contribution by helping to win the important doubles point!

FIU played 4 hr 45 min last NIGHT (rain delay) then got to hotel at 11 and head back down 90 minutes on freeway this morning at 8am

Down 2-1 you did win three late singles matches....

Enjoy it... UCI has won a lot of NCAA berths in February

You did do a nice job scouting yesterday though

- As I thought would happen Brooke Bartlett has jumped over Claire Fermin in the line-up. As I also thought Heidi Kaloi would play #6 singles for the key matches. The line-up looks almost like my prediction except for Stephanie Hammel who I didn't think would be thrown into the fire as a freshman #1. But she seems to be holding her own there.

FIU played 4 hr 45 min last NIGHT (rain delay) then got to hotel at 11 and head back down 90 minutes on freeway this morning at 8am
Form be careful or Rob might accuse you of making excuses for FIU. :lol:
UCI played a tough Hawaii & SDSU back to back on a Fri. & Sat. Meanwhile SDSU played Thurs. & Sat. taking Fri. off and being well rested before playing a less fresh UCI on Sat. But I didn't bring this up because I didn't want to make excuses. :lol:

Ha ha... huge upset my assLet's look at it from a ranking perspective. If UCI should of dropped out of the rankings as you thought then at best they are #76. FIU just beat #53 Mississippi & #42 LBS so FIU can claim the #42 ranking legitimately. A #76 beating #42, a team ranked at least 34 spots higher is a HUGE upset.

UCI has won a lot of NCAA berths in February
Your perception of how the rankings work seems to be slightly off. What matters is where a team is ranked at the end of the season. So if you beat a team that ends up becoming ranked at season's end you get a ranked win. It doesn't matter if you beat that team in January or April. It matters less what their ranking was on the day you defeated the team just what their ranking is going to be at the end of the season.

FIU already beat Mississippi and LBS so they've already secured a ranking at season's end. N.C. St. on the other hand will probably NOT be ranked at season's end. Once they start ACC play that will add another 8 losses to their record and they can be sure of staying out of the rankings.

Let's review... I've got a lot more ranking knowledge than u Little Edl...

FIU is not that good... Ole Miss will not be ranked at year end either... extrapolate what you need from there regards LB.

SDSU's win over UCI makes them the best non Pac/Pepp in the area... so you SHOULD be behind SDSU if the rankings are done correctly... which they won't because UCI hid there loss for a week (ok, knucklehead SID at SDSU didn't do them any favors either)

But this will all wash at the end (except in 2007 when UCI off one 4-3 win over LB in March got the most inflated ranking ever and then embarrassed themselves vs Texas in the first round of NCAA's).

But one win, yes the FIU win, could make a season IF Ole Miss and LB can stay in the 50's... they likely won't.

Bottom line: Big West gets just the automatic berth this year.

See you in April... hopefully LB will be better by then.

I've got a lot more ranking knowledge than u Little Edl... Form your read on how good teams are is sharp and I'm not questioning that. Your knowledge of the facts are plentiful but I think how you perceive the ranking's math is slightly off.


so you SHOULD be behind SDSU if the rankings are done correctly... The rankings are a ladder and there is usually a limited range on how much a team moves up or down this ladder each week.

Ex. Unranked team X beats #40 team Z. Team X will not be inserted around #39 infront of team Z right away. Going from unranked to #39 is jumping 36 spots in the ranking. Usually teams don't move up or down more than 20 spots. So Team X may be ranked at #55 the 1st week, #45 the 2nd week and #39 the third week. Team X may eventually get ranked higher than Team Z but it may take a few weeks or a few ranking cycles. It doesn't always happen all at once.

My scenario for Tues.

#51 to #47 FIU - Moves up 2-5 spots for LBS win
#42 to #50 LBS - Drops 5-10 spots for FIU loss
#65 to #57 UCI - Moves up 5-10 spots for FIU win
#NR to #65 SDSU - Moves up 10-15 spots from unranked to 1st ranking.

Form your memories of 2007 sounds like Long Beach propaganda. I'm not in the mood to argue but your perceptions of 2007 is flat out wrong.:help: I'll address a few points.

...embarrassed themselves vs Texas in the first round of NCAA'sTexas was NCAA runner-up in 2005 and half of that team returned in 2007. Texas' #1 player in 2005 was injured part of the 2007 year accounting for their lower seeding but came back in time to play against UCI. Even though UCI lost 0-4, they won the 1st set in 2 of 6 singles.
Three of the singles unfinished UCI had a chance to win.

But one win, yes the FIU win, could make a season IF Ole Miss and LB can stay in the 50's
Your notion of 1 win making a season is wrong. Last year Cal Poly defeated Washington St. ranked #42 at season's end. Under your theory they should of been ranked at the end of the year just from WSU alone but Cal Poly was not ranked.

...except in 2007 when UCI off one 4-3 win over LB in March got the most inflated ranking ever
Your perception of how the computer does its ranking math is off. UCI got its NCAA at-large with a #34 ranking. If you think UCI was ranked #34 ONLY because of beating LBS then your thinking is :cuckoo::cuckoo:

LBS was just 1 of 10 teams that were ranked at season's end that UCI defeated in 2007.

#44 LBS - NCAAs
#49 SDSU - NCAAs
#51 Penn - NCAAs
#55 St. Mary's
#58 Sac. St. - NCAAs
#64 LMU
#65 Cal Poly
#66 Nevada
#68 New Mexico
#73 CSUN

Even if UCI had lost to LB, UCI may have dropped a few spots but UCI would still have been top 40 and received an at-large bid guaranteed. UCI defeated 4 NCAA teams in 2007.

I wonder if the win over Heinser gets Widjija back to back Big West Player of the Week awards? I thought before this it might go to UCI's Stephanie Hammel for sweeping UCR's Oki and UCD's Schuler, both 1st Team All Big West last year. I wonder if it gets Widjija ranked when the next singles rankings comes out?

If Pacific plays well like today, they have a chance to upset #33 Tulsa on Friday and temporarily get ranked. Tulsa's real ranking probably belongs outside the top 60.

I watched the end of the deciding #6 singles match on live video. Every time Tulsa won a point the home crowd would give a large cheer and this would cause Gumenyuk to crumble. The Tulsa girl was safely pushing semi-moon balls down the center of the court and of course Gumenyuk obliged hitting 3 straight unforced errors to lose the match. Including on match point Gumenyuk played a ball that was out. I was stunned she didn't call it out on a match point against her! :shout:

Why are you saying only 1 NCAA bid this year? I disagree. UCI & LBS can get an at-large if they beat enough ranked teams. BTW Long Beach St. is already ranked #42 meaning they just have to hold their ground and not lose to teams ranked below them to get an at-large.

Where will Sac St be in a week after dropping three straight to 60, unranked and 68?

And St Mary's has NO ranked wins yet either.

Predict huge ranking swing this week

And maybe next week as computer takes two runs to get things right... which is why they run it twice at the end before doing seedings.

I wouldn't mind seeing a BYU, Tulsa or Utah in the 1st round. Even facing a Texas A&M is beatable.

Until UCI or LBS is hosting their own regional the 1st round match is the Super Bowl for them. They will always run into a road block in the 2nd round most likely UCLA or USC. So IMHO the goal for both programs, forget top 25 or top 20, is to break into the top 16 and host a regional of their own one day.

Cal Poly probably gets knocked out of the rankings next week. A tough win over an unranked Cal Poly doesn't do LBS or UCI much good. :smash:

Cal Poly better beat #75 St. Mary's and #46 Oregon in April and start pulling their own weight in non-conference. Setting up top 25 teams like #10 USC and #23 Washington are not winnable and lining up cupcakes like Memphis and Santa Clara are worthless. Will someone please teach Cal Poly how to better schedule non-conference. :fiery:

If Cal Poly had Pacific's schedule they would be beating teams like #69 UNLV, #32 Tulsa & #73 Oklahoma St. Pacific has the schedule but can't win the key matches. Cal Poly is good enough but doesn't know how to schedule. :crazy::crazy:

Interesting move by Cal Poly.... though Blalock gets fortunate super tie break win vs USC and then has to go three sets to win vs unranked LB # 2. Yet Matzenauer has tough loss after having match points vs. LB's # 1.

Will Blalock now be highest ranked Big West player... with two nice wins and having successfully avoided Hammel and Grady during league play?

Or is this the right move since CP looks to need to win at # 1 to get 4 pts? Might work.

When the CSF coach retires then they can hire the next coach at half his salary. Those tens of thousands in savings can then go to CSF's operating tennis budget and even add on 1 scholarship. Just kidding, probably not.:lol:

Form you're Mr. Pessimistic when it comes to the at-large! Long Beach St. is #25, TWENTY SPOTS safe of getting in. Why don't you wait until LBS drops out of the top 40 1st before worrying about not securing the at-large. Although LBS will drop in the rankings some next week with the combination of losing to Nevada and St. Mary's + Cal Poly dropping out of the rankings.

Aren't you the one who said it's 85% who you beat and not who you lose to! So I disagree and think this Nevada win will help the Big West's hopes for an at-large.

1. This win will get Nevada ranked. Nevada may be able to stay ranked at year's end if they beat teams like #69 Wichita State and formerly ranked Louisville.
2. If UCI beats Nevada that's another ranked win for the Eaters.
3. If Nevada gets ranked that will help UNLV who beat Nevada. If St. Mary's can beat a ranked UNLV that would help UCI and LBS. St. Mary's had matches against Pacific, Nevada & #73 Rice canceled. Winning all 3 of those matches would have definitely helped St. Mary's get ranked at season's end.

Alabama massively overranked off their freak win.

St Mary's: Given thumpings they are now taking, I think they are beat down and not what they were in Feb.


Which was Alabama's freak win?
def. #20 LSU 4-3
def. #21 TCU 4-3
def. #29 Arkansas 4-3
Alabama wins seem legit to me!


You mean St. Mary's thumpings from LBS & UCI their last 2 losses? Why would you think St. Mary's was beat down? They've barely played 8 matches and even had at least 3 canceled (Pacific, Rice, Nevada).

The next week will make or break St. Mary's.
Sat. at UNLV
Sun. vs #44 VCU
3/21 vs #30 Boise St.
3/22 vs #40 Princeton

They didn't get of to a good start by losing to UNLV 5-2.

If UCI or LBS fall out of the top 45 in April there is always 1 final "Hail Mary" chance for us. That would be St. Mary's somehow winning the WCC tournament and likely beating #50 San Diego and #48 Pepperdine along the way. That would give UCI or LBS's ranking an instant boost of 5+ spots! So let's pray St. Mary's is back into form in the WCC tourney. :angel:

Not only did St. Mary's lose to UNLV but in the process their #3 singles Sabina Gunnarsson suffered an injury and didn't play today against #44 VCU. St. Mary's is losing to ranked teams that they can beat when playing well. To add insult to injury they had matches canceled against potentially ranked teams that would of been played in February back when they were playing well.

2nd time this season that UCI got an opponent about 15 hours after beating LB. Emotional let down? Fatigue? I am told a Nevada girl literally said to their coach after beating LB.."Do we still have to play tomorrow morning?"

These are excuses but coincidental. Ultimately the result is the result. But the UCI match was headed to a 4-3 result (see collegetennisonline where full result is posted).

Nevada loss plus St Mary's falling apart eliminates LB hopes of at large. UCI may still hang on... they are negatively tied to SD State and LB. The farther LB and SD fall, then UCI in April will begin to slide also.

Do not forget that LB was # 34 at this point last year and did not lose another match except to #12 Fresno... and fell to # 50 because their opponents fell so dramatically. Will this be UCI's fate?

Tie breakers I 'believe' are"

Head to head

If multi teams tied... national ranking if appropriate

IF then tied (like CSUN, UCSB and UOP could be assuming UOP loses to all of the 'big' three) I believe it's coaches vote.

Suggestion that likely will come into play: Total points won in the matches involving those three.... which leaves CSUN and the 6 seed... if that were what was used to break a three way tie.

But that still assumes UCI, LB and CP all beat UOP.

Villajuan was at match. Not sure all those kids are on ride but rather walk ons (the one's from Kentucky)...

Widjaja loss is MAJOR.... it counts as a loss to an unranked player and the loss counts as if they lost to Fullerton in rankings. That's why scheduling those matches is so stupid... it counts for ZERO if you win and counts like a NUCLEAR BOMB if you lose.

Now will CP guarantee he backs his girl into the NCAA's by ducking Widjaja plus team rematches with UCI and LB in the desert... so his 'star' will AGAIN avoid Hammell and Grady. She will be the highest ranked Big West player yet never have played the best three players in the league. THAT IS SO BULLS**T.

At this point, an at large bid for Big West women's team looks highly unlikelyAre you kidding? The best case scenario for the Big West is still in play. That's where Cal Poly wins the automatic berth while UCI & LBS get at-larges.

If its LBS & UCI in the BWT finals then I would say in my humble opinion:
LBS is unlikely to get an at-large if they lose.
UCI is likely to get an at-large if they lose.

Look at the schedules.
1. Nevada will be one of the keys for UCI as they have the chance to pick off #75 Louisville, #66 Wichita St. & probably in the WAC tourney #50 Boise St.
2. Cal Poly still has #65 Oregon.
3. St. Mary's probably faces #48 San Diego in the WCC tourney.
4. Not to mention both LBS & UCI still hold their at-large destiny in their own hands when they play #57 Pepperdine.

As far how the loss affects the Big West I'm not sure. San Francisco's win will help those that defeated the dons. Mostly that's Cal Poly, Pacific, CSUN & UCSB. SF plays 6 Big West teams its like they can be part of the conference this season.

SDSU's karma bubble popped but that won't hurt them much

Arizona just caught a break... will now be massively overrated

Boise was already in... but done trying to educate on that (ps new bubble # is 44 this week)

What is going on at Florida

What is wrong with UCI top two.... cause they getta get better quick with UOP coming tomorrow

Here is your BW tiebreaker info:

Women
1. Head-to-head conference competition;
2. Win-loss record against common conference opponents beginning at the top of the conference standings and working down;
3. Win-loss record against common nonconference opponents;
4. National rankings released the week prior to the championship;
5. Coin toss.

You didn't do your homework again!

1. How did Arizona catch a break? Sac. St. was at full force with their 2 aces Zheltova and Meliuk playing against Arizona. May I remind you Arizon's No. 3 singles, freshman Sarah Landsman has a win over Hannah Grady! That's how tough Arizona's top 3 aces are.

2. Did you realize 3 of the ranked teams Boise St.'s #38 ranking was built on were #60 Colorado, #74 Washington St. and #75 Louisville from last week. Computer points are based from previous week standings in the rankings. Before this San Diego win Boise was set to take a 10-15 place tumble in the rankings with Colorado, Louisville and Washington St. ALL falling out of the rankings. Hell San Diego was the highest ranked team Boise St. has beaten all season. Anyone doing their homework would know Boise St. was far from in before beating San Diego!

form
Mar 28th, 2009, 05:42 PM
You over emphasize everything. Arizona's top 3 is not that special.... oooooh, a big win over Grady in the fall. Talk to me about lately?

Zhetlova's been out for a month and loses yesterday. Nice timing for UA. They are a 7th place team in the Pac... not good. Would be a 4th place team in the BW.... maybe 5th depending on UOP.

Actually, I just did my homework. With 4 weeks to go, Boise remains a bubble team. USD is going to continue to back slide.... unless the can find a SDState win. Nevada is sliding... as LB/UCI continue to slide.... So I would reverse my previous comment and still not agree with you... with 4 weeks to go, Boise is going to be calling it awfully tight for # 44 at large when all is said and done.

#15 Fresno State 6, # 47 LB State 1

LB played very well today in many spots. Up in # 2 double vs Top 20 pair serving for match point... but didn't close it. Frustrating. UGH

Manasse at # 2 was up a set and 4-3 but couldn't finish... and momentum changed quickly when it got to 3rd set.

Armmstrong at # 3 was 3-4 in both sets but Kurcekova just better.

Dallar rocked at # 4.... not behind.

All in all a closer match than score shows but Fresno is just deeper and better. Still, had LB played last week vs Denver like they did today... they win that match. So improvement.

Fresno St. summons Bruna Paes off the bench and Long Beach St. doesn't make them pay. Didn't Sutton destroy Paes last season 6-1,6-2?

Looks like Fresno St. has already axed Abigail Olivier of South Africa.


Future looks good with strong showing from two very good frosh and a nice soph. Both Manasse & Armstrong have taken over at Stephanie Bengson's spot in the line-up at No. 2 singles but apparently they haven't taken over Bengson's picture spot on top of the LBS tennis website yet.

This match was originally scheduled for Monday and got moved up making Hawaii have to play #33 Illinois and #74 Marshall both on Saturday. Hawaii lost the team match on a 7-6 3rd set tie-breaker.

Apr 4th, 2009, 03:38 PM
Then should I stop commenting on your $1000000 in prize money too?


Let's review

1) $78K (is that better; at least I got the two numbers right)... amateur?
2) Enrolled in college at age 21... now 22 as a soph... violated tennis 20 year old rule
3) Played 20 WTA per year for 3 years... while still in school? violation of recent 'traditional HS class' rule

Yet I know of a 18 year old Brit who is not currently eligible because she took a year off from school... and played a whopping six tournaments... but is still on her traditional HS pace and would like to start now... at 18!

Widjaja, Juricova, Andersson, Gloria.... just completely wrong. Three are massively ITA ranked and Widjaja (despite loss she may well replay at BW Tourney) would have a better ranking if Pacific had any kind of schedule to help her get more opportunities. Too much prize money and way to old in most cases.

PS... Widjaja is a 22 year old, 3rd semester college student. LB has two seniors: Grady turn 21 in November and Weeks (doubles) is only 20. Doesn't that strike as odd?

By the way.... great for Landsman.... that may help Grady when the final rankings before selections come out (3 weeks; 4 spins).

There are 3 huge flaws in ITA rankings

a) Over weight to a win while massively underweighting a 'bad' loss. They need to deduct a bit more for unranked and lower losses. Ironically, this would impact the LB team and players this year but those were not great losses.
b) For singles, a third set super tie break win should not get same 'value' of points for a two set or full three set win. You see some funky results when a match has been decided and thus these victories should count maybe 60% instead of a 100% bump.
c) Every week they should spin the computer twice. There are so few matches (22-25 each spring per team) that the rankings skew wildly. They do spin the computer twice the final week but they should do that every week. It would statiscally cut down the wild swings and give a better read.

Last year on the final spins pre-selections the Cal Poly doubles pair were ahead of the LB doubles pair... even though the LB pair had thumped (THUMPED) them twice. When the computer spun again, the LB pair passed them but it was too late as the NCAA selections had been announced.

The statistical data is so limited that they really should spin the computer twice each week. It would 'correct' some of the wild swings that occur. As it is now, it take about 3 spins to properly adjust for wins and losses.

Widjaja beats Vertesheva and probably secures NCAA singles automatic bid with a chance to even win a round or two. I'd take an NCAA singles bid over POY any time.


- I can't decide which team has been more disappointing this season, Pacific or Cal Poly.

Uh, your EATERS got a bye too. Even more so when Davis pulled Shuler after dropping doubles.

Widjaja, Blalock and Grady will go 'on table' to be compared. What will really be intersting is their rankings three 'spins' from now.

Blalock's rank is a complete farce off a super tie break win over Sanchez and hiding from Grady. BUT her loss to Widjaja likely killed her.

So the question is can Grady get her ranking close enough to Widjaja that the Grady win (on the road) over Widjaja carries the day?

By the way Gouci, have you ever seen Widjaja play? Can you describe her game or are you just rooting for anything not Long Beach? I can but choose not to share notes with the EATERS for future years.

#92 St. Mary's def. #61 San Diego 4-0 (http://collegetennisonline.com/Tennis/ScoreSheetResults.aspx?scseId=176939&tmId=544)

Finally the real St. Mary's shows up although its too late.

#60 Long Beach St. def. #149 Cal St. Northridge 4-2 (http://collegetennisonline.com/Tennis/ScoreSheetResults.aspx?scseId=176995&tmId=379)

From what I gather at one point CSUN had Long Beach on the ropes. CSUN had won the doubles, Sirijddinova had won her 1st set and Jaworowksi was up 4-2 against Manasse. But CSUN let the 49ers back in it and congrats to LBS for coming back and winning.

Hey Form do you know the unfinished score at No. 6 singles?

#56 UC Irvine def. #103 UC Santa Barbara 4-3 (http://ucsbgauchos.cstv.com/sports/w-tennis/recaps/041909aab.html)

UCI also had UCSB on the ropes and let them come back. :help:

No. 6 singles - UCI was up 5-1 in the 2nd set but ended up losing it in a tie-breaker. :banghead:

No. 3 singles - Ended in some contraversy. On match point Bartlett was cheated by Novak. Bartlett could be heard questioning the call. After the match when pressed the umpire said Novak made a bad call but Bartlett didn't ask for an overrule. The entire crowd heard Bartlett question the call. :fiery:

No. 2 singles - Byron was up 6-5 in the 3rd set and had 2 match points but ended up losing it in a tie-breaker. :banghead:

Seeing how well UCSB played this weekend makes me pissed thinking about how UCSB matches against #67 Texas Tech and Temple (ranked top 90), 2 teams UCSB may have beaten, were canceled but not by rain out.

#60 Long Beach St. def. #56 UC Irvine 4-1 (http://www.ucirvinesports.com/sports/w-tennis/recaps/041909aaa.html)

I lost a few pounds in the form of sweat in the 105 degree heat. On top of that there was an afternoon crash that created a 1.5 hour traffic delay around the area of the giant pinwheels.

No. 5 singles - My understanding was in the 2nd set LBS had 2 match points up 6-4 in the tie-breaker. However Luzar gave it up with UCI pulling in front 7-6 gaining a set point of their own. But Kwan gave the set right back to the 49ers losing the tie-breaker 7-9. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
That essentially decided the team competition.

No. 3 singles - Last I heard UCI won the 1st set and was up 6-5 in the 2nd.

No. 6 singles - Last I heard UCI was up a break in the 3rd set serving 4-3.



:worship: CONGRATS LONG BEACH ST.

UCI has an outstanding baseball coach... and boy doesn't the AD at USC look stupid for shoving him out the door a few years ago (despite decades of top 10 and a national title too)

Pacific's #92 Jenifer Widjaja will face the 3rd seed #2 Aurelija Miseviciute of Arkansas in the 1st round of the NCAA singles tournament. Her match is on Wednesday 5/20 scheduled for 3:00 P.M.

Well Widjaja has an opportunity to make some noise early if she wins. :lol:
