Re: 2016-17 College Tennis Results and Discussion

Yeah, that is me, urklerlay. I admit I do lose interest when the NCAA Championships are over and then something funny happened to the site where everyone had to re sign up or something?
Anyways I signed back up w/ a new name.

Davidson has had some injuries and isn't quite back to her old level, so that is why she is No. 3.

I hate the regular set they use for doubles now, instead of a pro set.

What's the story on Davidson? Is she recovering from an injury?

I like that she's at #3, actually, as her style of play does not give her much of a chance at #1.

Doyle has been stepping up at #1 giving Card a 50% shot.

Speaking of interest, I think their are a few factors in play:
1) Fantic's disappearance
2) New rules, shorten the game, exciting? or disappointing? Probably has divided the interest in the game. Personally, I hate attempts to shorten the game.
3) Junior talent turning pro has diluted the talent playing college (nothing new) but more international players seem to have leveled the playing field.

My guess is that if Davidson isn’t able to play 100% then Stanford is a bit of a long shot.
Doubles is getting too short that anything can happen. Might as well make it a coin toss...

Interesting article

WHAT MAKES TENNIS TICK
The secret behind Stanford’s winningest sport

Through her first six seasons, Forood had remarkably totaled more NCAA championships (5) than overall losses (3).

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 (ITF).





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?
