Irina has had better results than Mallory while she was still an amateur... and she stayed in NCAAs a year longer than Mallory. I think this is a good decision.

Better?

Cecil actually won NCAA and helped Duke to win the championship. And Irina won few 10Ks which Cecil also did.

And Falconi only played handful tournaments so far and a few 50K and 75K while Cecil, prior turning pro, already played WTA tournaments.

I've never watched Irina played before but at least with Cecil, there's potential. Big groundstrokes. But good luck to her anyway.

I was talking strictly pro results. And yes, I think Irina had a better 2009 than Mal. Just sayin.

Re: The Irina Falconi Cheer Squad

Cecil did not have good results in 2009 because she has fought injury since August,2009. She had a broken foot bone when she played the US Open. She now has a torn hip labrum, so she is back at Duke in summer school, while she heals.

Your comment further illustrates the point. One injury and you can get derailed easily. Just ask Jamea Jackson, Alexa Glatch, Audra Cohen, Mallory Cecil -- etc -- who all had superior results to Irina before turning pro.

Re: The Irina Falconi Cheer Squad

Agreed. However, what is the point? What are the criterion for American women to turn pro? All the women you mentioned have the results. Who can predict injury? Do you not turn pro just because you might get injured?
The ones who chose to go to college continure to get behind from a tennis perspective. However, there is much to be said about the personal and mental growth in college.
Also, the USTA does not financially and "coachingly" help these women as they do the men. That is the X factor in my opinion.
