No. I was not referring to any player. My opinion, the forums tend to blame coaches, injuries, personal problems etc. when a player leaves. Could be true. However, I don't remember ever reading that academics played a role with an athlete transfering. I bet it has played a huge role. Afterall, the athlete is there for an education not just to play tennis. This is probably a new concept for some players.

Re: 2009-2010 recruiting - "speculation only"

Wanabgator.. you get it.

Bingo... and that new concept comes out in two ways:

1) Academic shortfall

or

2) Quit playing tennis because the combo (academics and work load to play high level tennis) is more than they desire. Some transfer, some stay but pay own way without tennis and some quit college completely and go home to other countries to study without tennis.

It is a huge step up from HS & JR TENNIS to Top 50 D1 tennis PLUS college academics


I personally am much more suspect of those few uni's (seem to be in Texas area; one in Dallas area and one in middle of nowhere) that constantly get MULTIPLE transfers. I've heard of atleast two cases with very illegal offers without permission to speak and the on-going year after year after year pattern is interesting.

Re: 2009-2010 recruiting - "speculation only"

For the top 50 programs... it is a big jump in workload tennis wise as much as academics. Few if any juniors practice 3 hours per day, 5 days per week, both semesters. It doesn't take long to seperate those still into tennis and those that were 'just' using tennis as a means to get a scholarship.

Now, below the 35-100 level, many programs only practice as little as 90 minutes per day and the results are indicative. Likewise, some kids prefer that as the tennis is clearly 2nd fiddle (or lower) rather than equal in importance.

There are many cases where kids left programs because they just didn't really want to work on their tennis that much... and went to program where less time and effort was expected.

Florida has a tremendous academic and tennis reputation. And he continues to reload even when those not interested in that working at BOTH high academics and high tennis move on.

Absolutely! It's important to find the right student/athlete for any college program.

Baylor

Someone is set to lose a scholarship or to leave Baylor for 2009-10.

1. Taylor Ormond #48 - jr.
2. Lenka Broosova #35 - sr.
3. Jelena Stanivuk #47 - jr.
4. Csilla Borsanyi #68 - sr.
5. Nina Secerbegovic #123 - so.
6. Kasia Siwosz - sr.
7. Karolina Filipiak - jr.
8. Zuzana Chmelarova - sr.

Incoming
1. Carla Lindlar - fr.

I don't think Lindlar is a walk-on because it would be unusual of Baylor announcing the signing of a walk-on.

Re: 2009-2010 recruiting - "speculation only"

My laptop is working again as of Wednesday and that feels so good I'll probably go on a posting frenzy for the next week.


Khunpak Issara of Thailand

She's living in Southern California and the top 4 CA Pac 10 schools currently have no openings. I would speculate Pepperdine would be the front runner to sign Issara if she decides to play college tennis in Spring 2010.

Re: 2009-2010 recruiting - "speculation only"

Pepp is full if they have indeed signed Colffer.


What have UCI (3) and Cal Poly (2) and CSUN (4 if Fournell medical's out) added?

LOTS of questions there

Re: 2009-2010 recruiting - "speculation only"

Pepperdine minus Catherine Isip, Anne-Christine Voicu & Zlatka Petrova = 3 slots open

Pepperdine adds Marie Zalameda & Arianna Colffer = 1 slot to fill

Here's a hint Form.

(1st name 5 letters) = _ _ _ i _

(last name 8 letters) = _ _ _ _ a _ _ _

In May 2009 this future UCI player defeated another American recruit who had a WTA top 600 ranking and will be a freshman this season for a top 10 national powerhouse school.
