* I thought the top 3 last year was; Cecil, Gullickson, Juricova

All somewhat similar style, power baseliners.

The top 3 power players this year; Juricova, Gullickson, Barte

and they lost this season to;

Gullickson

lost to Vallverdu(2), Falconi(2), Schnack, Chifchieva

Juricova

lost to Schnack, Gullickson, Dy, Falconi, Sanchez, Barte

Barte

Will, Dy(2), Sanchez

Barte also went to 3 setters against Schnack in the last two meetings.

Those players, to whom they lost have a distinct trait, methink;

Can move well, and can mix it up; slices, dropshots..

nice defensive skills that can foil or disrupt the attacker's rhythm.

In other word, an all-arounder.

----------------

* I enjoy watching a game in which the opponents have contrasting styles;

say in the last NCAA, Mosolova vs Zsilinszka.

Offensive rallying machine (not especially powerful) vs (Tactical) Moonball queen

Now THAT was some sight :drool:

In the same vein, I want to see

Juricova, Gullickson, Barte, Secerbegovic vs Cossou, Boonstra , Will (solid defenders, and C & B have excellent control and touch)

Fresno St. Petukhova is back! She's playing #3 doubles right now. So former #1 Kucerkova/Petukhova might be operational

in time for NCAA..

Also Pluskota of TENN will soon be operational. Sorbello/Whoriskey defeated Boonstra/Will recently.

Imagine when Pluskota/Whoriskey plays again. All top doubles teams, be VERY VERY AFRAID! :lol:

Have you seen Barte play? While she is a powerful player, especially for her size, she should not be grouped as a power baseliner player like Juricova, Gullickson, or Cecil. She moves very well, mixes it up with slices, dropshots, and spins. She likes to come to net and has great volleys. Also, this thread title is a tad misleading.

fantic
Apr 18th, 2010, 09:07 PM
Made a title thread to talk about NCAA.

And of course Barte is not a baseliner. Read the OT again, I did NOT group like that. Anyway she

IS a power player. Say, similar to Henin?

Most players just can't handle her drives, that's a fact. Well, maybe I can nominate Secerbegovic

instead of Barte..:)

I mean Allie Will hasn't lost a match all year, and Embree has lost very few. Falconi is still number one in the nation. I think this board in general overrates Jurikova. I've never seen Barte play. I don't think the individual tournament is as locked as it was last year, when Mal was clearly head and shoulders above everyone else except Gullickson, who randomly lost to Vallverdu anyway.

Juricova is not overrated. It was quite a shock when I watched J for the first time, at Marks Stadium. Against Sanchez. The level gap was

overwhelming. J doesn't move that well but she doesn't need that much. One two punch, point end. Just like Gullickson.

She dispatched Embree easily at Riviera. And she's the indoors champion. Juricova's nemesis is Gullickson, but that's about it.

And Gullickson did not randomly lose to Val. Val won two matches against G this season too. She knows how to 'handle' G, by mixing

it up, slices, drop shots..very crafty player.

Between who? Juricova and Sanchez? Or between the #1's and the rest of the players? #3 Maria Sanchez (USC) def. #2 Jana Juricova (CAL) - 6-1, 2-6, 6-3

I'm not that impressed with either Juricova or Gullickson. I know Juricova beat Barte in their last match, but I saw Hilary dismantle Juricova in the match prior and, while it may be a biased sample, I was not impressed. Same with Gullickson. This season she has lost to: Embree, Whoriskey, Falconi (2), Schnack, and Vallverdu (2). She's ranked where she should be.

fantic
Apr 25th, 2010, 06:00 AM
no no, I was talking about last season, duals match. Juricova was just annihilating the opponents, you can check out calbear93's you tube video of

Juricova vs McKenna. Last season USC beat Cal at their home, but Juricova was..just a shock to me.

Of course this means Sanchez did REALLY well THIS season, as a Trojan fan I'm proud of her :worship:

Well, I don't think Juricova and Gullickson are overrated, just that the opponents that beat them are good :) Barte is just..you know :)

Can someone please explain how/why Cao got the automatic Ivy bid over Bartlett? Bartlett beat then #20 Newman and went undefeated in Ivy play, while Cao's best win was over #30-something, and she lost to Vicky Brook from Yale. It doesn't make any sense to me. Also, Bartlett was Ivy Player of the Year, not that that would factor into the selection at all.

To be fair, Cao also beat Bartlett (6-2, 6-1) in the non-conference match back in February. And that matters because the NCAA selects the highest ranked player in each conference solely based on the ITA rankings, no regard to conference record, etc.

Interesting point. Not sure about your "among others" mind:p: these two are an entirely different species from the AQs who earned their rankings by beating good players.

Mendoza (http://itarankings.itatennis.com/PlayerSchedule.aspx?did=4&confid=181&teamid=480&PlayerId=71159&TypeId=1&SeasonId=10)'s and Rubesova (http://itarankings.itatennis.com/PlayerSchedule.aspx?did=4&confid=178&teamid=410&PlayerId=88000&TypeId=1&SeasonId=10)'s records. Both unbeaten in dual play: is that enough in itself to get a ranking? Mendoza's results much the less impressive of the two, and she must have an unrecorded loss, as she played in a consolation draw without seeming to have played in the main draw.

Yeah, don't get me wrong - I have no problems what so ever with someone like Jenni Heinser getting an auto-bid. She is almost a prototype for why the auto-bid system is in place and is certainly deserving. But when you starting handing out auto-bids to players who aren't #1 on their own team, I start to wonder. And in Mendoza's case, where she wasn't even voted 1st or 2nd team all-Patriot League (5 of her Army teammates were), the flaws in the system are quite apparent.

Yasmin should've met Hein, to resolve that NCAA 2nd round, unfinished match :rolls:

And Cossou! Tough luck, 2nd round against Falconi :tape: She was the perennial elite 8, say like Mexico in the World Cup

(they ALWAYS go to the 2nd round) :rolls:

I also was hoping Ramos vs Mosolova rematch :lol:

I haven't noticed S last year at College Station but saw her last year at Riviera.

She just blew Pantic of UCLA off the court. She's a power player. Larsson of UT fared better with

her wily play but she was too passive to actually win it.

But if you've read my posts this season you'd know this already :rolls:

I even recommended S as MIP of the year :)

Gullickson is similar to Juricova. Juricova and Gullickson ; BIG BABE TENNIS.

Falconi is just an all around player, kinda like Sanchez. Can construct pts extremely well,

drives are good, slices, drop shots are ready for the like of Gullickson..

Sad state for college tennis... Look at Barte and Juricova, both top ten players. The match is filled with unforced errors and only a few good rallies. This is why collegiate players have a very difficult time going pros.

This one's between Burdette and Coussou. Lots of moonballs and slices, which is totally collegiate style.

OK, I didn't have TIME to see the results, just returned from Carson and from

Noodle World and Boba :hearts:, and Borders (to write a report on my blog)

so will have a guess first :devil: believe it or not, it's true :lol:

Falconi vs Murray ; Falconi of course

Chan vs Ramos; Chan

Will vs Remynse; At Riviera Will bageled R. So Will, but she did lose

to Lyndsay Burdette :confused: Will not be surprised if Andrea wins :lol:

Gullickson vs Marand; G

Barte vs Schnoy; I like S but Barte here.

Frilling vs Boxx; could be close, but still, F. Kristy is battling her sophomore

rivals, Bek and now Boxx :lol:

Broosvoa vs Tigu; dunno how T plays, but Lenka

Hein vs Eichkorn; Come on Micaela !

Gilchrist vs Whoriskey; W

Burdette vs Val; BIG MATCH. Veteran Val for the win!

Hickey vs Andersson; Andersson, sorry Noelle I still don't...:lol:

Chifchieva vs Sanchez; Maria defeated Fani at Indoors regional, so, repeat.

Nze vs Thongdach; dunno, but Nze

Lao vs Secerbegovic; Lao has skills, but will nevertheless get blown off the

court, she lacks power. Nina for the win.

Tsang vs Mosolova; I won't be surprised if Maria loses :rolls: Still, M

Rehberger vs Juricova; Jana.

Now let's see the result! :bounce:

fantic
May 28th, 2010, 06:07 AM
Kristi! :eek: Well not that surprised. :)

And Eichkorn...gave breadsticks to Hein? She defeated Schnack last season..damn.

Val bageling Mallory :rolls:

Noelle OMG :eek:

Fani really put up a fight, just like a Riviera Runner-up in 2008.

Reasonable scoreline from Nze vs Thongdach. T IS a tough opponent, after all.

Danielle got a set fron Nina, not bad.

Maria bageling Katrina :eek: but she'll lose comfortably to Jana, unless she does something different...

and I doubt she will.

fantic
May 28th, 2010, 06:34 AM
NEXT;

Falconi vs Chan ; At Riviera Venise gave Irina a run for the money. At Indoors Irina bageled V. What next?

Still, Falconi.

Will vs Gullickson; At Riviera Will gave G a run for the money. Still, G for the win.

Barte vs Boxx ; Hilary, let's make the elite 8 :)

Broosova vs Eichkorn; E is dangerous, but still, Lenka

Whoriskey vs Vallverdu; both have variety, might be a fun match. Val.

Hickey vs Sanchez; Of course Maria will win.

Nze vs Secerbegovic; Will Nina blow Nze off the court? Nze's not Lao, actually she blowed Finky off the court

at the last NCAA...still Nina for the win.

Mosolova vs Juricova; Unless Maria makes heaps of sharp winners, or tries some variety, Jana's easy win.

Eh...Jana? :lol:

Gullickson upsets Falconi 6-2,6-4...saw the final 20min.

eickhorn has a great forehand, can go insideout, crosscourt, DTL and on the run. her bh is solid and she can hit winners from there as well. serve is solid but not spectactular, but her movement and consistency and ability to hit aggressively on the run are impressive. doesn't come to net much, but is ale to volley when she does.
gullickson? she played well, falconi def had a lto of mistakes that i'm sure she normally never makes.

Whoriskey could slice away to the win. Barte didn't do much, when she did approach the net she was

winning most pts. She should've done that more. Just rallying with Gullickson will NOT gain you victory.
