With Scandalis/Santamaria/Christian/DeSimone/Olmos/Katz/Yates/Westby

Is USC and UCLA following in the footsteps of Stanford?

Re: 2013-14 recruiting - "speculation only"

One of those three should consider ASU, they can play ITFs in summer and fall like Cako and face USC STANFORD UCLA CALs top player for the next 4 years instead of playing lower positions aka guiliana olmos at a bigger school! I assume all three of them want to turn pro after graduation.

I think Allie will turn pro, but it's just a guess.

I'm probably putting two and two together and making five, but if both of these tweets are recruiting related Pippa Horn must have visited TCU, mustn't she?

I've been very impressed with Chi and Fabikova this season. Fabikova has a big game that was apparent right off, but has more touch than one might think and seems to be developing more patience and consistency as well. And I love watching Chi play. She's just been on fire lately, really committed to being aggressive. The future is bright for both at Cal.

The Bears will lose Davis and Goransson next year. In addition to Manasse, I wonder who else they have coming in? Could they get a top American player--who's left?-- or will they get another international star? Another Chi/Fabikova-level player, and they will be have a great line-up!

Give this years Cal a fast surface at Illinois and they can be tough.

Chi has been a great addition! I've been very impressed with her and she has exceeded my expectations. I think she really deserves a lot of credit. Its unfortunate that she missed out a singles and doubles spot in the NCAA tournament.

I thought Cal was going to get a Danish tennis player but sources no longer seem to confirm that.

Maybe Melsted? To be frank, unless I've overlooked someone, I don't see any worth taking between Barbat (too old, too controversial) and Ailpieva (way too young).

Thanks for the response, Tennisace.

Well, the last time they lost out on an international player, they ended up with Chi. I'll take that every time! So I'm crossing my fingers...

Against Auburn, Chi blitzed her opponent in the first set, and then finally gave up a game. One could see how that just pissed her off. Associate HC Cordell Ho went to speak to her, and told her to make her opponent feel the pressure, and Chi complied, jumping on top of every second serve return. So impressive!

Colette Lewis
‏@zootennis
ITF Carson and @asicseasterbowl champion Mayo Hibi wins her 1st $25K, beating Petra Rampre 3&0 in Las Cruces NM @USTAProCircuit final


If Mayo doesn't turn pro, I am going to speculate that she goes to a Pac-12 school, not SoCal, so north somewhere, near Palo Alto.
