Angelina Jogasuria vs Angelika Jogasuria
The twins will battle each other.
Akron has Zaruhi Harutyunyan at #1, she did well at the Riviera, who will be reinforced well by 3 freshman. The Jogasuria twins from Indonesia plus Prang Pantusart of Thailand who had an ITF ranking high of #173.
Akron's #2 & #4 singles from last year in addition are also returning. This should make Akron the favorites to win the Mid-American over Western Michigan and Miami-Ohio, who got #1 singles Monica Gorny poached by Duke and lost their head coach to Maryland.
Watching them all yesterday I thought that Radeva might lose, but wasn't prepared for this one;
SF Angelina Jogasuria d. (1) Bianca Aboubakare 6-4; 6-1
maybe Aboubakare couldn't recover from the exertion of winning against Zamudio
Double J's are really good, they're technically quite sound, have nice drive (not that powerful, but pretty fast and accurate), and agile too..we'll hear more of them in the future, I guess.
By the way I wasn't that impressed with Gorny, she did win against Rachael White at WAATC..
