Re: Goodbye Books, Hello $: NCAA players gone pro! 2010 Edition

^ Embree is most definitely giving it a shot. She had surgery and was doing rehab most of the season. I don't think Lauren has the game for the tour either, but I hope I am wrong. She seems to LOVE tennis and has the desire to make it. Unfortunately, her game is very bland and lackluster. If she can develop more pace on her shots or some sort of a weapon, she'd find it easier to make it I think.

Mary Weatherholt has played a couple of tournaments as well.

So is Embree giving the tour a shot now? I don't think she has the game for it, but we'll see...

Also, Alexa Guarachi(Alabama) is giving the tour a shot and won her 1st ITF a few weeks ago.

Any one else have any insights?

Danielle's game is based primarily on her big groundstrokes. She has a decent serve and a nice return, but she really excels at hitting winners from the baseline. She is a fiery competitor, and she plays her best when she gets on hot streaks (ex. 2012 National Clay Court Championships, 2014 NCAAs) and can pretty much beat anyone, if she is on her game. She has the kind of game that could translate to the pros for sure, but she would have to work on producing that sort of form week in and week out. If she is able to do that, I would be very excited to see what she could achieve.

Thanks for the info! Hopefully she can play a tournament before the US Open... would hate to see her come in fresh off an injury and rusty...

I can see Kristie Ahn giving it a shot. Mayo Hibi turned pro before going to UCLA. I can also see Robin Anderson or Jennifer Brady going pro.
Pretty sure I read somewhere that Ahn was going to give pro tennis a go?? I am not sure where I read that though... it very well could have been on a social media platform and not an official article.

I think Jenny Brady would be rise to stay another year in college. Unsure about Robin. Hope they both play the pro circuit this summer though.

Chelsey is still in her undergrad at UGA. Fink is teaching/coaching, McDowell is at UGA doing her law degree. Peters did have interest in a law degree but I don't know if she has started. Gibbs did an interview this week and announced she was going pro at Wimbledon

The "next generation" of college players are having a lot more success transitioning in pros it seems. Irina Falconi, Mal Burdette, Maria Sanchez, and Nicole Gibbs are at there proving it's possible to succeed.

Would love to see some younger girls give some pro tournaments a try this summer... particularly Robin Anderson, Zoe Scandalis, and Sabrina Santamaria (who I saw play in 2010 and wasn't hugely impressed with, but I think she must have grown leaps and bounds in college because her results have been pretty impressive). Would like to see Kristie Ahn out there too... I've always thought she had pro potential, but injuries I think derailed her somewhat, and studies have always come first.
Chelsey has gone back to UGA to get a higher degree. I believe she'll come back soon.
