Re: Pac 12

STAN website provides some useful infos;

"Burdette's first-set win over Susanyi represented the first time an opponent won at least five games in any set since March 30, when Burdette topped Arizona State's Michelle Brycki 7-5, 6-4."

Now you understand how Brycki beat Scandal.

LINK

"After requiring three sets to win her opening-round match on Thursday, Gibbs lost just four games over her final four matches en route to the title. Three of her five victories came against Golden Bear opponents.

Gibbs has now won seven matches in a row and is 31-5 overall and 17-2 in duals.

There was also a possibility for Gibbs to become the first Stanford player to capture both conference titles since Marissa Irvin accomplished the feat in 1999.

However, Gibbs and Mallory Burdette dropped a 6-4, 6-4 decision to USC's Kaitlyn Christian and Sabrina Santamaria in the doubles final. The Women of Troy have now won the conference doubles title in three of the last five years."

Re: Pac 12

from CAL website;

" No. 96-ranked sophomore Anett Schutting became the first Golden Bear to advance to the conference singles title match since Susie Babos in 2007".

Cal fared better in the doubles invitational final where junior Tayler Davis and freshman Laura Posylkin earned a 9-7 victory over Arizona's tandem of Hailey Johnson and Sarah Landsman to take home the invitational title. The Bear duo is the first to capture the invitational crown since Bojana Bobusic and Claire Ilcinkas won it in 2007."

" Cal has appeared in all 30 NCAA tournaments and has hosted first- and second-round matches at the Hellman Tennis Complex in each of the last six years."

Re: Pac 12

from UCLA website;

"After winning the first set 6-4, Anderson suffered an injury and dropped the second set at love. She retired before starting a third set."

So it was already pretty close when Robin got injured. She seemed all right, had no problem walking along the grounds on Sunday.

Re: Pac 12

again apologize for not watching Tan vs Gibbs, but USC players were playing invitational semi at the same time, can't abandon my Trojans and watch a STAN affair, can I?

And I have to blame Stacey, the match was finished too quick

------------------

And what? This is a conspiracy to eliminate PAC 12 teams early

Re: Pac 12

From the Daily Bruin:

"Freshman Robin Anderson, the only player from UCLA to win a match in the singles championship draw, did not finish the third set of her quarterfinal match because of back problems."

It doesn't sound too serious, thank goodness!

"The pair’s run was cut short though, as Dolehide’s foot injury shelved the duo in their second round match against the USC team of Zoe Scandalis and Valeria Pulido."

Hopefully the foot injury doesn't sideline her during the tournament.

"Fellow freshman Chanelle Van Nguyen teamed up with Anderson for a letdown in doubles championship play. The pair jumped out to a 7-2 lead against a USC duo, only to drop seven straight games in their opening round defeat."

Fantic, did you see that match? That's too bad they couldn't close it out but I guess that's what could happen when you haven't played together before. Credit to the USC girls because they went on to win.

Re: Pac 12

Ojai final..was underwhelming. I mean, Schutting and Tan basically did all the 'dirty job' for Gibbsy, beating Smyth, Anderson, Burdette, Juricova, Scandal Lord knows I'm one of the biggest fans of Gibbsy, but I dunno what to expect for her at Athens. We'll see.

Re: Pac 12

so, USC didn't do that well in MD singles.

Scandal lost to Tan in 2,
Lao lost to Schutting in 2
Sabs lost to Goransson in 2,
KK lost to Skowrowski in 2.

And Tan will probably play #4(If Ahn is not good enough) or 5 singles next season

Did well at the Invitational of course, since it was a Trojan final.

Again, if USC wants to win NCAA, needs a super-player like Nelson. Nelson who advanced to the NCAA final two times in a row. Who was an EXCELLENT attacker.

Nobody fits that bill now.
Lao is top 20, not top 10 player.
Scandal lacks weapons (her potent serve can't be maximized if she can't hit flat..one-two punch could be a very effective weapon. Well, she's still a freshman so can improve a lot, of course).
Sabs is maybe the biggest hitter but still inconsistent.

Can incoming freshman Yates make it? Or Westby? dunno...their junior results are not of a top player material yet..

But USC has a pretty even pool, so predicting the lineup order will always be fairly interesting Maybe next to STAN's order

Maybe USC's plan is like UCLA's, strengthening the lower positions and the dbls

Re: Pac 12

video uploads finished, I think.

Perfect size for smartphones and such I guess, since if you enlarge it becomes blurry

Re: Pac 12

Funny thing.. Sofie Oyen who is ranked below Stacey was listed as alternate, yet Stacey received at-large selection in singles..
