Re: SEC Women Tennis 2011

^I think I read somewhere that the head coach said somewhere along the lines where they train for two weeks before classes or the start of the season and that Brianna was the most improved in that time period out of any player he has coached.

Re: SEC Women Tennis 2011

UF unbeaten at home again.

From UF website;

"The win was Florida’s 10th consecutive overall victory, as well as its 119th straight win at home and its 124th regular-season win at home which includes a 12-0 home record this year."

Who will stop this? Thankfully for UF they 'travel' to Stanford next season Can UNC stop the streak?

UF invited CU, Baylor and Stanford and went to UNC and Duke.
So will UF invite UNC and Duke next season? Both teams might be better than UF..

Ravita Receives NCAA Tournament At-Large Bid

"Freshman Nadia Ravita received an at-large bid for the NCAA Championships.

May 2, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Continuing her historic freshman season, Nadia Ravita received a singles at-large bid for the 2013 NCAA Division 1 Women’s Tennis Championships, one of 48 players nationally to be selected by the NCAA Division 1 Women’s Tennis Subcommittee.

“The whole team is excited to see that Nadia will have a chance to gain valuable experience and accomplish some amazing things in the national individual tournament,” UK head coach Carlos Drada said. “The fact that Nadia had such a remarkable season as a freshman is a testament to her hard work and competitive spirit.”

Posting a 20-4 singles record, including 10-3 in Southeastern Conference matches, Ravita was named Second Team All-SEC and All-Freshman, the first Kentucky player to be named All-SEC since Christine Johnson in 2010 and the first UK freshman to be named All-SEC since Megan Broderick in 2008.

Ravita’s bid makes her the first UK player to compete in the singles competition at the NCAA Championships since Kim Coventry received an at-large bid in 2006. Coventry defeated Georgia Tech’s Lyndsay Shosho in the first round of competition but ultimately fell in the Round of 32.

Currently ranked 24th nationally, the freshman has ranked as high as 22nd nationally, the highest singles ranking for a UK player since 2006 when Kim Coventry opened the season ranked 15th.

Ravita’s singles record ties the best record for a member of the program since 2008, when Christine Johnson finished the year 20-4.

The Jakarta, Indonesia, native’s signature win came early in conference play when she knocked off fourth-ranked Cristina Sanchez-Quintanar of Texas A&M. After dropping the first set 6-2, Ravita stormed back to take the second set 6-4 and claim the match with a 6-2 win in the third set.

“This is the beginning of great things to come not only for Nadia but also for the rest of the team next season,” Drada said."

Auburn article on Pleun

"BIRMINGHAM – Auburn women’s tennis freshman Pleun Burgmans has been named the SEC Freshman of the Year and a member of the All-SEC First Team by vote of the league’s coaches, the conference office announced on Wednesday.

“I’m so proud of Pleun and all she accomplished so far this year,” Auburn women’s tennis head coach Lauren Longbotham Meisner said. “These honors are tremendous accomplishments both for her and our program. She has worked very hard and has become a leader for our team on and off the court. She has been a huge part of the turnaround our program made this year and will continue to play a huge part over the rest of her Auburn career.”

Burgmans, who was also named to the All-Freshman team, excelled in her first season on The Plains playing exclusively at the top line for the Tigers. A native of the Netherlands, Burgmans posted a record of 21-6 during her rookie season, including a 15-3 mark in dual matches.

The freshman was 9-2 in conference play and posted an 8-4 mark against ranked opponents.

Additionally, Burgmans was 24-9 in doubles play with five different partners, but saw most of her action with senior Plamena Kurteva. The tandem combined for a 13-4 mark that included five ranked wins with victories over No. 6 and 7 teams in the country.

Burgmans is the first All-SEC first team member for Auburn since 2009. Former Auburn All-American Fani Chifchieva was named first team All-SEC from 2007-09. Burgmans is the first Auburn student-athlete to be named SEC Freshman of the Year."

She looks a bit like Ula

It was Cercone, believe it or not. She was also having a potty mouth all match... Can't blame her... She can't really play doubles when you really looked at her game...

Re: SEC Women Tennis 2011

It was a great tourney all around! I just got back to Atlanta. Got a few vids uploaded. The finals was everything... for the gators that is. Even though UGA was taking it to the gators during the first 1/4 of the singles play, in the back of my mind I knew there was no way UGA could pull out 4 singles WINS against the gators.

The doubles win for GATORS could prove to be a turning point for the whole of the upcoming NCAA's. To beat #1 ranked doubles team and taking a doubles point against UGA? It was not just a confidence booster. It's a CHALLENGE to by the gators to the rest of the field come NCAA's.

Embree was solid as rock - Herring was just NOT able to take the ball early as she normally goes against Embree to hit her powerful groundies. Herring was pinned at the back of the baseline most of the time by Embree's top spins. She somehow figured out the timing and took it to Embree during the later of the second set. It was a great match to watch. Would have loved to see the outcome.

Perhaps the high from winning the doubles got into the girls, they did seem a bit lackadaisical in the beginning of the singles, including Jano. But she buckled down and fight really hard in the end.

Here's a few clips to see (I hope you all are able to watch them. Its from my FB.)

Jano's match point

Few of Embree & Oyen's points.
