I think either Davidson or Doyle would do poorly at #1 and would be better at #3 and #4.

Perhaps Lord at #1 and Lampl at #2 would be appropriate based on their potential, especially as they both finished strong last year.
Yes, Mannasse did it at Cal. She was #6 her freshman year and then jumped to #1 her sophomore year I believe. I like Lord's game. She has solid groundstrokes and is consistent.

Stanford has 5 players that could play #1: Lord, Davidson, Doyle, Higuchi, and Lampl. They'll have a solid singles lineup. Interesting that we're not even talking about Yee anymore.

How good is Arbuthnott? Will she be in the lineup? I've never seen her play.

If this week is any indication, Lord should be #1, at least to start. No one else on the current roster has ever beaten that many high caliber players so convincingly back to back to back. I'll be very interested to see if she can keep it up and will look at the Stanford and Cal schedules to see which matches I can check out this season!

I would play Arbuthnott ahead of Yee at this point. Arbuthnott lost to Alexa Graham 4-6, 5-7 in the first round. In consolation, she defeated Milovanovic of Pepperdine 6-2, 6-4, then Alyssa Smith of Duke 6-3, 6-0, then #46 Makenna Jones of UNC 6-1, 6-3.

I'm interested to see Lord play though. I wonder if there is anything new about her game.

Oh yeah! I think Mannasse had a great fall too to push her to #1 and I think injury had to do with too to their former #1.

You had Yee figured out from the get go. I though her injury may have plagued the progress in her game, but I suppose she didn't have much of a game to take to the next level.

I think Yee is just happy to play at Stanford and add to their depth at #7, a nice change. Recruiting Arbuthnott, one of GB top juniors, Lele had to promise her to play in the starting line-up. Looks like another year with Freshman's at #5 and #6 to play pivotal roles.

Wow, incredible run by Melissa. Quite out of nowhere.

Re: 2016-17 College Tennis Results and Discussion

It should be an interesting weekend in Florida.

Stanford vs Oklahoma State on Fri in Orlando at 3pm (ESPN3)
Oklahoma State vs Florida on Sat in Gainesville at 4pm
Stanford vs Florida on Sat in Gainesville at noon.

Gators have their 161 consecutive Home Game win streak on the line!!!
I think Stanford holds the record at 184 losing to Gators in 2011 NCAA final.

Re: 2016-17 College Tennis Results and Discussion



ORLANDO – Nine months later, Stanford and Oklahoma State squared off in a highly-anticipated rematch of last year's NCAA championship.

Different setting. Same result.

Senior Taylor Davidson shook off an early deficit to grind out a three-setter, clinching No. 5 Stanford's 4-1 victory over No. 6 Oklahoma State on Friday night at the USTA National Campus in Orlando as part of the 2017 College MatchDay series.

The stakes were not as high as last May, when No. 15 Stanford became the lowest-seeded team to win an NCAA crown. But the early-season result likely sends a message to fellow contenders: expect 18-time NCAA champion Stanford to be in the national title mix once again.

Just like the 2016 final, Stanford (4-0) fell behind 1-0 after dropping the doubles point to Oklahoma State (8-2). The Cowgirls grabbed the early advantage by winning tiebreakers at the Nos. 1 and 3 spots after the Cardinal snagged court two.

But there was no panic from Stanford, which finished 7-2 last season when losing the doubles point. Four of those wins came in the postseason.

Instead, Stanford focused its attention on singles, ripping off three straight wins before Davidson's ninth career clincher.

Emily Arbuthnott contributed Stanford's first point, defeating Carla Tur Mari 6-3, 6-0 on court five.

Caroline Lampl edged Aliona Bolsova 6-4, 7-6 (3) at the No. 5 spot, putting Stanford in front 2-1.

Already gaining momentum, Melissa Lord turned her match on court three, outlasting Vladica Babic 2-6, 6-3, 6-0 to make it 3-1 Stanford.

The Cardinal was then in complete control, with Davidson one game away from finishing off Lushkova while Caroline Doyle and Emma Higuchi were battling back in their matches.

Improving to 14-9 in three-set matches over her career, Davidson secured Stanford's fourth straight win minutes later.

The Cardinal is now in position to make an even stronger statement, closing out perhaps its most challenging road swing in recent memory.

Stanford next travels to Gainesville, Fla., for a true road match against No. 1 Florida (7-0) on Sunday at 9 a.m. PT. In what has developed into the best rivalry in college tennis, Stanford has won seven of the last 10 meetings against Florida since the powerhouses matched up in the 2010 NCAA final. Four of the matches have taken place in the postseason while Sunday's contest will represent the sixth straight of a home-and-home series in the regular season, as both programs have the mutual respect to test themselves early.

Also on the line is Florida's 161-match overall home winning streak, which is the longest active home winning streak of any NCAA Division I team in any sport. The Gators last home loss came back on May 15, 2004 against Miami in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Oklahoma State gets the first crack at snapping the streak, as the Cowgirls are also headed to Gainesville for a match on Saturday night.

Regardless, it means a very quick turnaround for Florida, which still has some work to do to catch Stanford, as the Cardinal owns the longest active home winning streak in NCAA history, producing a 184-match winning streak at Taube Family Tennis Stadium from 1999-2011.

No. 5 Stanford 4, No. 6 Oklahoma State 1

DOUBLES
1) Babic/Tur Mari (OKSTATE) d. Arbuthnott/Davidson (STAN) 7-6 (5)
2) No. 36 Doyle/Lord (STAN) d. Blanco/Bolsova (OKSTATE) 6-4
3) Adamovic/Lushkova (OKSTATE) d. Higuchi/Lampl (STAN) 7-6 (4)
Order of Finish: 2, 3, 1

SINGLES
1) Taylor Davidson (STAN) d. Viktoriya Lushkova (OKSTATE) 4-6, 6-4, 6-4
2) No. 38 Caroline Doyle (STAN) led Katarina Adamovic (OKSTATE) 5-7, 7-6 (6), 3-2, susp.
3) No. 13 Melissa Lord (STAN) d. Vladica Babic (OKSTATE) 2-6, 6-3, 6-0
4) No. 75 Caroline Lampl (STAN) d. Aliona Bolsova (OKSTATE) 6-4, 7-6 (3)
5) Emily Arbuthnott (STAN) d. Carla Tur Mari (OKSTATE) 6-3, 6-0
6) Emma Higuchi (STAN) led Lena Ruppert (OKSTATE) 4-6, 7-6 (5), 4-1, susp.
Order of Finish: 5, 4, 3, 1

Florida defeated Stanford 4-1. Stanford only got a point from Higuchi at #6.

Re: 2016-17 College Tennis Results and Discussion

The score was incredibly lopsided, but one other bit of "good" news is that Lampl had at least one match point against Austin while serving for the match at 5-4 in the 3rd, but she obviously didn't convert.

Stanford has a strong team, but Florida is stacked from top to bottom, with Keegan and Porter not even playing the match. I like Florida's odds of taking it all this year...but, then again, I said that last year as well.

The next two years are going to be interesting for Florida though, as it loses Woolcoock, Keegan and Liang to graduation after this year, and then Austin, Danilina, Kuhlman and Porter next year. Victoria Emma is the sole recruit currently listed on TRN for next year. Roland is going to need to replace a TON of incredibly talented players to stay at the level the team is at now.

Re: 2016-17 College Tennis Results and Discussion

Lele had the Cards keep it in 2nd gear, still early in the season.

Gators just came off winning indoor, so they were finely tuned.

Things get serious in April, when Cards be running on all cylinders.

Aside from Florida and Stanford, I expect Ohio State and North Carolina to be the teams to beat...

Cal beat UCLA 6-1

Bears Roll Past UCLA, 6-1 - CalBears.com | University of California Official Athletic Site

The results were surprising, not much because of the rankings (#9 UCLA, #18 CAL), which seemed off to me, but because Manasse did not play. This resulted in two reshuffled doubles teams: Starr/Jansen at 1, and Alexis Nelson/Stephane Lin at 3; Hauger/Popovic stayed at 2. But the Bears won easily at 2 and 3 to get the doubles point.

Then in singles, everyone moved up on, with Lin joining at #6.

Popovic played #1 and really impressed by beating Shibahara. She has improved so much.

On the top 3 courts, Cal just played the big points better. The bottom 3 courts were a battle. Maria Smith at five squandered a handful of match points, with her serve betraying her when pressure was on. She lost against Andrews, giving UCLA the only point of the day.

I don't think Cal has great depth this year, at least not compared to last year. But today, the Bears had enough.

Re: 2016-17 College Tennis Results and Discussion

What a difference a few weeks makes! UCLA pulled off an amazing comeback win over Cal today. They won the doubles point but then quickly lost 3 singles matches. They won the last three in three sets to complete the win. Gabby Andrews has been a nice addition for UCLA, really glad to see her playing well!
