I think after what can be considered a breakthrough week for her in Indian Harbour Beach, Shelby deserves her own thread!! She reached the finals, losing 6-2 3-6 4-6 to Edina Gallovits. She is currently ranked 700-something but with this result she will be ranked around 420! Big jump!! :D

saw her in FWB. has a great future. Needs to work on fitness though. Was overpowered in all areas by Yakimova. I wonder if she will go to college or go pro after a semester?

Ew. I hate that draw. May the best girl win. Both are big hitters, so it should be interesting.

And this was posted on zootennis.com

And finally, according to this storyabout the Indian Harbour Beach Pro Circuit singles final in Florida Today, there is no college tennis in Shelby Rogers' future.

"Following the final, Rogers declared herself a pro, making the runner-up check of $3,990 the first she has collected at a tournament. Gallovits won $7,315."
Big decision, and I hope it's not a premature one... good luck Shelby!

Oh no Shelby :unsure: Even if she has an awesome pro career :)tape:) I still think this was premature. Making this big of a decision after really only one good tournament?

I'm usually for the girls going pro, but I do think the results have to be there first. While this was a great result, I think it would have been wise to wait a few more tournaments. This was her only really good result so far.

i have grown to her pro decision. She would have had a Cecil sort of college career IMO. potentially a NCAA her 1st year and leave.

Mallory regrets turning pro. In my opinion, A full ride to an elite university where you have an opportunity to win NCAA's > losing in qualifying at minor WTA tournaments and doing mediocre in challengers, probably even losing money. But I hope for Shelby that this is the right decision.

Aw I feel really bad for her if she feels like that. I think there's nothing wrong with doing what Irina Falconi is doing and finishing at Georgia Tech. She will most likely go pro after, based on her results. But she gets a free degree while developing her tennis.

I just hope Shelby has success!
