Touche. Not to take anything away from Lauren and her truly incredible career but the fact that Lauren played #2 behind the Wicked Witch for the majority of her career gets lost in the recent "OMG LAUREN IS DA BEST EVA."

I think USC wins the doubles, 2 out of the top 3, and 1 out of the lower 3. I'm most confident in Scandalis beating Cercone. But still, always hard to bet against the two time defending champs. Florida knows how to win!

We all know that the best team in 2011 was Stanford

But, likewise, the best team in 2010 was UF, so the same 2 time champs

That psychological hurdle will surely be the biggest enemy facing USC Past that, then, history!


But Amal, didn't you pick USC for the win? at the tourneycopia

Re: Www 2013 Ncaa Team Tournament

Also, I'm really hoping the Sabs/Embree matchup happens in either the team tournament or the individuals. Put all this transitive property logic/ 2 degrees of freedom common opponents to rest.

Yeah, I'd say it's more 'urgent' than Lauren vs Gibbsy rematch, that was done

Don't you think that's a pretty bold statement?


Honestly, I think Lauren can take Sabs at #1

Sophie has improved just as much or more than the Little Giant, so I wouldn't count her out at #2

Cercone can be just as tough as Mather was the previous years, so she is about even with Zoe IMHO...



On paper, USC looks tough and they're hungry, but you have to consider that when UF or Stanford plays during the finals, they play for KEEPS!!!

If USC gets past Stanford, it will be their 1st since when? 1985 when they lost in the finals to who?

Add to the fact, the team chemistry that UF, which will trump USC who has 3 divas at #1-#3

The way that Embree came back to beat Mal in 2011 and with her #1 ranking gives her the trump card to beat anybody, except for Gibbsy, of course

You have to factor in experience, especially playing the big match. Look what happened to UCLA last year...

USC this year is like what UCLA was last year, so my prediction is...good luck with that

Don't think those intangibles can be overlooked. 5 of UF's starting six have won two national championships. No one on the USC team has made the finals. We'll see!

And yup, I did. I wanted to pick someone other than Florida And no one will argue that USC has the talent to win and I think they actually match up well against Florida.

But if you told me that the Florida/USC match was tied at 3-3 with Sabrina and Embree just starting a third set, would my prediction change? Yea, I'd probably go with Embree on that one.

Re: Www 2013 Ncaa Team Tournament

I thought of more

Zsofi def. Embree 1,1
Robin def. Zsofi 1,2

And then, voila, Robin loses to Sabs

4/18/2013 Dual Match Pos. #1 #2 Sabrina Santamaria #5 University of Southern California Loss 6-1, 6-0

3/8/2013 Dual Match Pos. #1 #2 Sabrina Santamaria #5 University of Southern California Loss 6-2, 6-1

Re: Www 2013 Ncaa Team Tournament

tiebreaker, why did you say USC has 3 'divas' at 1-3? Just curious

And what, Sophie? You're risking UF's fan's ire, wonder if Sofie will tweet 'disrespect' this time

Are you talking about whether UF will 3-peat?

and the "Era" beginning afterwards with Embree no longer in the lineup?

You're always bringing up these matchups! It's nice to compare but we all know that in tennis, there are certain players you just match up better against than others. We don't know what will happen until they actually play.

Also, you omitted Robin's win over Sabs in the fall.

I'm horrible at spelling names...that's no disrespect...my spelling is like your algebra


As far as "divas", I am implying that anyone could play #1 and were rotating at one time? no?


Personally, I've never seen that happen at the Farm, even with better players at the #2 and #3 positions, so my inclination is such to keep them all happy

Oh, Fall? that was ages ago

Matchups, matchups. Sabs is not a ball basher. In fact, she's adept and constructing points.

Let's see to whom Lauren lost easily;

Last year, Capra and Zsofi. Are they ball bashers? Nope..

May I make a bold prediction (as if I haven't made plenty of it already )

Both Gibbsy and Lauren, since it's their last dual match, will get emotional and tight;
hence, Sabs will win surprisingly easy (oh in the case of Gibbsy, it'll be just a repeat)

And, what is with that tasteless nickname 'ice princess'?

Didn't I nickname Lauren 'Iron Maiden' ages ago?

You threw in Lauren's loss to Zsofi and Robin's win over Zsofi...all of which occurred in the fall. You then included Sabs' wins over Robin. I just wanted you to be consistent in including Robin's win over Sabs which was in the fall as well.

Yes, Sabs is a different player now and those other players could very well be different as well.

In my opinion, college tennis is a little unpredictable. The top players will likely always defeat the lower ranked players but when the top players play each other, you can never guess what will happen.

What are you implying then? After all I'm not making up facts, and Sabs did rout Robin twice, not once, recently. And that Robin also beat Gibbsy, as you well know.

And, that Gibbsy had a tight match against Lauren..all of which happened this year
