Congrats Stanford on winning the inaugural Pac-12 tournament team title and the regular season title. Stanford will continue to dominate the Pac-12 until somebody else steps up. Hopefully UCLA is in the picture next year with Dolehide coming in. Speaking of which, she's in the final of the ITF event in Charlottesville today against Brengle. Hopefully she doesn't turn pro.
More hardware for the trophy case, I guess...
Yep I had mentioned in the player forum that I'd be worried if I was coach Sampras...
It seems that several of the young junior Americans have caught on fire.
First with Bellis getting hot during and after the US Open last year. See you later Stanford.
After she turned pro, Bellis passes the torch to Kayla Day
, who gets hot after the US Open to gain the W/C bid for AO.
That sets-up Day turning pro to cash-in on AO.
Kayla passes the torch
first to both of her doubles partner, Taylor Johnson
(juniors) and Caroline Dolehide
Taylor heats up late last year, rising up the junior ranks, although still has 2 years to go.
Dolehide heats up this year, winning $25k Suprise is Feb, but losing to Bringle in $60k Charlottesville.
Hopefully, nobody passes the torch to Claire Liu
, as I suspect she will follow in the footsteps of her doubles partner Michaela Gordon (going to Stanford), although I'm sure UCLA is still in the running...or not!
Yep, Stanford would be solid in doubles with these two.
So who thinks Dolehide will go to UCLA?
When the other option is to train with another professional tour player?
