Summer Break Tennis Events & Trivia (2015)

It's not quite summer in terms of weather but the kids are out and playing tournaments somewhere.

Some are turning pro now or have in the past years, while some still have amateur status, while playing ITF's events.

I created this thread to track what's going on in your neck of the woods, who's doing what, and whatever tidbits you care to share.

Haven't really seen Sabs play that much on US soil, except for college events, as much as she plays abroad every summer...

$25,000 Changwon (KOR) 2015 | May 25 (Winner: Kristie Ahn)

Good to see Kristie win her first title as a professional and 2nd title altogether, as 1st title was in 2009, prior Stanford.

Would like to see those 2 make it as a doubles team, like Bryan brothers.

Lauren Herring and Ellen Perez also both qualified in Charlotte and won their first round singles matches and their first round doubles match together. Caroline Price got a wildcard and won her first round match too.

Price defeated Rianna Valdes, USC's incoming freshman. I wasn't sure how good Valdes was. Looks like she'll end up playing in a middle position in the lineup.

She had some really nice results in the spring, but I agree, probably middle of the lineup to start.

Re: Summer Break Tennis Events & Trivia (2015)

Kourtney Keegan, Caroline Price, and Lauren Herring all into the Charlotte quarters, and Herring/Perez are in the doubles semis.

It's also worth noting that Giuliana Olmos from USC won a $10K in Mexico last week and is back in the quarters of another event this week.

AND Kristie is into another $25K QF in Korea!

Great week for the college girls so far

Go Kristie! I hope she remains healthy as I'd like to see her reach her full potential.

Olmos wins her second $10k in a row down in Mexico.

Price and Herring will be playing in the Finals at Charlotte's $10k. UPDATE: Price wins over Herring 6-2, 3-6, 6-3.

Maybe that allows her to play for the Chilean team and get some support for her tennis.
