2018 ITF NPB] Day 1 singles

USTA coaches present, including former USC star.
College coaches, UO, USC, PP(Pomona Pitzer?), NU? UCI?

Packers hood t. Who wore this, later Black Widow 'borrowed' it methinks lol. Thank you for the snack! How did you know I like Hazelnut..haha.

Michigan cap! Hmm~~

Court 12, that's WTT court?

1st Round

Vivian OVROOTSKY (USA) 7-5 6-4 Mell Elizabeth REASCO GONZALEZ (ECU) [1]

G was quite good, powerful. Not an easy win by O. Bh seemed quite good, approaches, as well.

Elizabeth COLEMAN (USA) 4-6 6-4 6-3 Margaret POLK (USA)

Sure C made errors, but because P managed to prolong the points; not easy to do. Just returned well with great concentration, and when C approached the net, passed well. Another discovery today.


S seemed quite decent.

Maxi DUNCAN (USA) [13] 6-0 6-1 Kamilla NELLA (CAN)

Vivian CHENG (USA) 7-6(4) 6-2 Anastasia SYSOEVA (RUS) [12]

Couldn't watch but this match took long. Harassing C so much, S must be good.

Madison SIEG (USA) 6-2 7-6(2) Eryn CAYETANO (USA)

Upset of course. Dunno, C seems the same, aggressive, approaching the net, committing errors..still a very good win by S.

Camille KISS (USA) 6-1 6-2 Leena BENNETTO (CAN)

Midori CASTILLO MEZA (USA) [5] 6-1 7-5 Payton SACA (USA)

Couldn't watch much, but MCM has Santamaria vibes. Short, good fundamental, solid drives. Even made a backcourt overhead(was this in doubles?). Could paint the sidelines methinks. Didn't know who was who, but coach Wootton thankfully pointed them out.

Dianela RODRIGUEZ (MEX) [4] 3-6 7-6(5) 7-6(4) Scout MATHEWS (USA)

As I said, Player of the Day, M.  I was probably more impressed with Gailis's drives, but still, verra good. Uber aggressive. Didn't really miss that much, either. But R's defense was terrific, and could counterattack. R consistently targeted M's 'weaker' bh methinks, but M held quite well on that wing, although netting some at first.

So, problem solving. M decided to shorten the points, attacking serve, approaching the net, driving more sharply, including in and out. Terrific execution was a bonus. Hence led 5-4 in the 3rd methinks.
Then dunno what happened but R changed the racquet? Dunno if it was a deliberate ruse or not, a gimmick to disrupt M's rhythm. Happens all the time, and players have to 'overcome' that too. M played poorly and got broken. Still, as the score shows, fought till the end. Hence, she deserves to be the Player of the Day :)

Katrina SCOTT (USA) 6-3 7-5 Makayla MILLS (USA)

Not an easy win, M resisted furiously, playing quite well, including net approach volleys. S was probably just a bit more solid, and her counterattacks were quite effective methinks.

Jenna DEFALCO (USA) 6-3 7-6(4) Jiawen LI (CHN)

Elvina KALIEVA (USA) [15] 6-1 6-2 Robin MONTGOMERY (USA)

M, not bad, quite powerful, etc. K too good though.

Jaedan BROWN (USA) [10] 7-6(2) 6-1 Aanya GOEL (USA)

Callie CREATH (USA) 6-3 6-4 Cami BROWN (USA)

Too bad I missed this.

Chae Eun YOO (CAN) 7-6(4) 6-4 Rachel GAILIS (USA)

Probably one of the best singles matches today. Excellent quality. G, fast tempo, including serve, say like Dolgo. Execution wasn't too good though, committing DFs haha. But her drive form, beautiful. Concise, fast racquethead speed..could paint the corners at will. Y just really returned well. Really terrific defense, and also could attack quite sharply. So many points were long, and ended in G's errors.

Marcella CRUZ (USA) [6] 6-3 6-7(4) 7-5 Megan POLNET (USA)

I probably saw P before, not sure, but was quite impressed. Tall, lefty, excellent drives, even could create angles. Probably vies with Mathews for the Player of the Day. Net approaches weren't bad either. Not an easy win, and C grinded it out. Also served well methinks.  Many points, ended in P's errors.

Julia HAYNES (USA) 6-3 6-2 Mackenzie CLARK (USA) [7]

C really is a good player. Sharp drives, net approaches, overhead. But couldn't quite pierce H's defense. H served well methinks.

Katherine H T NGUYEN (USA) 6-1 6-1 Kitty GREENWALT (USA)

G wasn't bad, aside from serve.

Nikita VISHWASE (USA) 6-3 6-3 Leyden GAMES (USA)

G really is a good player.  V was quite powerful, and also could grind it out.

Chui Kei LEUNG (HKG) [11] 6-3 2-6 6-4 Camila ORDONEZ (USA)
Casie WOOTEN (USA) 6-2 6-0 Ashley CHANG (CAN) [16]
Jordan HARRIS (USA) 3-6 6-1 6-1 Melanie DLUGOLECKI (USA)

Kimmi HANCE (USA) 6-2 6-1 Casey CUMMINGS (USA)

C wasn't bad.

Xiaowei HU (CHN) [3] 4-6 6-3 6-2 Isabelle KOUZMANOV (USA)
Julia DEMING (USA) 6-4 6-4 Madison KIM (USA) [8]

Velizara FILEVA (BUL) 1-6 6-1 7-5 Elise WAGLE (USA)

Quite evenly matched. One of the quality matches for sure.

Aniya HOLLOWAY (USA) 7-6(4) 7-5 Toni NELSON (USA)

H was quite powrful.

Elizabeth STEVENS (USA) [9] 6-3 6-0 Stefanie FRIAS DA SILVA (CAN)

Rebecca LYNN (USA) 7-6(7) 6-2 Dagmar ZDRUBECKA (CZE) [14]

L was a good hitter but I was rather impressed with Z. Hit really well.

Maia SUNG (USA) 6-3 6-4 Sydney JONES (USA)

Granted S played well. That said, a rather poor performance by J, some returns were rather weak. Gotta report to coach Petty..! Haha(joke, don't really know him!).  Tried to shorten points, not bad, producing winners, but committed errors too, and S defended well, also counterattacked sharply.

Avery AUDE (USA) 6-3 6-4 Alexis GOLIN (USA)

Jennifer GADALOV (USA) [2] 6-2 6-3 Solymar COLLING (USA)

'Gadalovism strikes' again. Line disputes followed, as usual haha. Poor performance by C but you have to give credit to G's rock-like defense. Not sure what to say about that handshake..haha.

Methinks I'll visit tomorrow again. Isn't it going to rain on Wed. and Thu.
10:11pm, finished. Now to 24 fitness jacuzzi then home! I'll post my San Joaquin Marsh bird pics today later.

2018 ITF NPB] Day 1 doubles

Still not home, eating first and writing at SB, had to 'decamp' en route lol.

1st Round
Jennifer GADALOV (USA) / Xiaowei HU (CHN) [1] BYE

Julia DEMING (USA) / Julia HAYNES (USA) 7-6(4) 6-4 Casey CUMMINGS (USA) / Dagmar ZDRUBECKA (CZE)

Enjoyed this. Good combo, C and Z. Z's drives + C's net play. D really has nice touch at net; defended verra well. As I said, Kansas recruited well.  H passed well.  Is she going to SMC? Not sure, just saw a hood t.  If so, also a good recruit by the Gaels.

Velizara FILEVA (BUL) / Jiawen LI (CHN) 6-3 6-2 Jordan HARRIS (USA) / Madison KIM (USA)

Was H's dad? wearing a Bruins cap. Oh just checked TRN and she's going to SMC? Good recruit.

Vivian OVROOTSKY (USA) / Nikita VISHWASE (USA) [7] 7-6(5) 6-4 Kimmi HANCE (USA) / Rachel WAGNER (USA)

Best match. 'Black Widow' is probably the player closest to KK in doubles among current juniors. Astonishing net coverage, probably too greedy haha(trust your teammates at times, especially since H is good!). Net defense, no problema. Not afraid at all, to return those strong drives coming at her. As before, some of her basic service returns..could be better!  Methinks H served well.

You would've thought this team would win, but they were on the defensive lots of times, because of O/V's firepower(Defended very well). V was quite good at net.

Robin MONTGOMERY (USA) / Megan POLNET (USA) 7-5 6-4 Midori CASTILLO MEZA (USA) / Chui Kei LEUNG (HKG) [4]

Another good match. Polnet is my discovery today. Even good at net. Firepower, as in singles, impressive. C/L definitely were a good team.

Leyden GAMES (USA) / Scout MATHEWS (USA) 6-4 6-4 Aanya GOEL (USA) / Isabelle KOUZMANOV (USA)

G/K must've played well. Too bad couldn't watch much.

Toni NELSON (USA) / Casie WOOTEN (USA) Walkover Aniya HOLLOWAY (USA) / Sofia KABANY (USA)

Annika BASSEY (USA) / Katherine H T NGUYEN (USA) 6-0 6-2 Ashley CHANG (CAN) / Dianela RODRIGUEZ (MEX) [5]

Court 10 or something, too far.

Eryn CAYETANO (USA) / Maia SUNG (USA) 6-2 6-0 Payton SACA (USA) / Anastasia SYSOEVA (RUS) [6]

C too good, as usual.

Maxi DUNCAN (USA) / Camille KISS (USA) 6-0 6-3 Callie CREATH (USA) / Margaret POLK (USA)

One of my marquee matches, but I just had to chat with coach Lumpkin! Chicago, Stanford upping their game come May, time management for an elite player(WAATC, etc.), and of course, 2008 UCLA NCAA win.  Let's just say it's complicated haha. So emotionally invested. Not easy at all, of course. Hence, after the 'trial' of 2007, 2008 was 'business as usual', check, check, check :)

So couldn't really watch much, my bad. Should 'check' C tomorrow(P I watched today a bit)!

Katrina SCOTT (USA) / Elise WAGLE (USA) 6-0 6-2 Kitty GREENWALT (USA) / Kamilla NELLA (CAN)

Watched a bit. G/N weren't bad, passing, etc.

Mackenzie CLARK (USA) / Marcella CRUZ (USA) [3] BYE

Jenna DEFALCO (USA) / Madison SIEG (USA) [8] 6-2 6-4 Melanie DLUGOLECKI (USA) / Camila ORDONEZ (USA)

Same here, D/O weren't bad.  Thought their net plays were quite good actually. DeFalco defended the net well.

Jaedan BROWN (USA) / Elizabeth COLEMAN (USA) 6-1 6-1 Stefanie FRIAS DA SILVA (CAN) / Soniya YALAMANCHILI (USA)

B/C too good.

Sydney JONES (USA) / Makayla MILLS (USA) 6-4 6-0 Gabrianna BARCELO (USA) / Marisa MINJAREZ (USA)

B/M were actually leading at first, must've played well. Too far so couldn't really tell.

Mell Elizabeth REASCO GONZALEZ (ECU) / Elizabeth STEVENS (USA) [2] BYE

2018 ITF NPB] Day 1 player of the day

Busy eating but this first:


SJ chooses UCLA; Bruins back on Top

So, thanks to an anonymous tip checked her instagram and she says' she's incoming in January.

Which means, 2019 January I presume.

So next season, UCLA adds Bolton AND Johnson. Now UCLA is a definite title contender.
Along with Duke, Pepperdine...still 'Blue Period' I guess!

Now, off to bird San Joaquin Marsh! Palm warbler is spotted, hope I can spot it this time(failed to spot it at Huntington Central Park)

Sunday, March 18, 2018

2018 ITF NPB

Many top kids from HS class of 2022 are playing(but do I really have, and since I'm not attending EB, this might be the last chance to see them.

TRN ranking order;

#2 Castillo(just behind Gauff?!! Chula Vista, good birding spot. Scott, Ovrootsky, Lynn, Gailis all Californians. USC messed it up on the Golden Class of 2017, maybe they can do better here),
#3 Scott,
#4 Ovrootsky,
#5 Vishwase,
#8 Montgomery,
#9 Sieg,
#12 Lynn
#14 Gailis.

And Sieg is playing against the USC recruit, the pressure is all on Cayetano. But if you can't handle this pressure, how will you handle the pressure of Duals against 'rivals' like UCLA. I wonder if she improved a lot, really curious why USC chose her. Gotta have a look. Hope the court is watchable; #17

Montgomery plays Kalieva at court 6.
O plays the #1 seed, but probably O will win? We'll see(ITF Claremont seeds weren't really indicative of their levels).

Wagle is class of 2021, TRN #16.

Marquee match is of course Colling vs Gadalov; befittingly, Stadium match. Dunno why the other match is played there, Nelson should win it easily.

Clark vs Haynes could be interesting: contrast of styles, C approaches vs H passes

Projected singles semifinalists

Haynes: Probably the easiest section
Deming/Jones/Colling/Gadalov: the toughest

Should read on my Winter National posts for preparation.

Thankfully girls play 3rd. Where should I bird..San Joaquin this time(you have to pay a fee from February, Bolsa Chica)?


I was is a black mood arriving at UCLA. I shouldn't have birded lol. Still it's Sepulveda Basin, Burbank exit! You know what it took from there to arrive; like almost 50 minutes.  Forgot this maxim as well; if 405 is bad, Sepulveda is worse. Envied a Red-tailed Hawk nonchalantly hovering over us!
Egad...the area definitely is one of the worst traffic zones in all America.

But my mood was considerably(or absolutely!) brightened once I spied the splendid buffet..!  Naturally I stuffed singles 1st set, was mostly busy eating, who cares about tennis :p  Watched court 1-3 while eating).  Alumni weekend or something, thank ye.
And former coach Zaima, R.I.P.

Forgot to bring my hearing aid(another case of my advancing senility!), so couldn't really interact with others as I hoped. Believe me I wanted to ask coach Brown about HS class of 2019 recruits!  Well, maybe at Carson or something. At least said hello though.

Plenty of familiar faces! The Pastor, coach's kid(definitely taller than me now??!!)..

Nice Ducks banner!  Mr. Webster has competition now! :)

At 12:58pm some kind of goose flew over the stadium. I picked up my bino too late, since I had my hands full with yummy buffet lol. Didn't really look like a Canadian goose..or could it be just a common American Wigeon? Really too bad I couldn't identify it...Could be a Snow Goose.

Scores from UCLA

Mar 18, 2018 at Los Angeles, CA (Los Angeles Tennis Center)
 #15 UCLA 4, #20 Oregon 0

Doubles competition

So when I arrived UCLA already won their 4th game. Aaah, if only it was 8-game and ad like before, and no-clinch..definitely a trying times for women doubles fan. Steph Myles said all stadiums were packed that day, nonsense; because I climbed over the empty stadium 3(Troicki vs Fuc...) in the hope of watching that Vika/Sabalenka vs Genie/Stephens doubles at stadium 6 lol. As I said, the south top row was occupied by like-minded fans who were standing and also trying to watch that match(can see 3 quarters of that court only, tragically)

So, can't really say much about doubles.

1. #22 Terri Fleming/Jada Hart (UCLA) vs. #61 Julia Eshet/Shweta Sangwan (ORE) 4-4, unfinished

2. Abi Altick/Ayan Broomfield (UCLA) def. Rifanty Kahfiani/Alyssa Tobita (ORE) 6-3

I think A netted an backcourt overhead! Or was this during singles.

3. Alaina Miller/Ena Shibahara (UCLA) def. Nia Rose/Paiton Wagner (ORE) 6-4

Concentrated on this match to watch Wagner. Methinks M's defense was quite good. Drives were effective as usual.

Singles competition

Methinks the Bruins approached the net rather often; deliberate tactic?

1. #8 Ena Shibahara (UCLA) def. Alyssa Tobita (ORE) 6-1, 6-1

Tobita is not a bad player. But like USC, UO will have to get an elite player if they hope to compete with top teams. Stefani for Pepperdine, Di Lorenzo for OSU; now Carla Touly for FSU it seems.  Rival UW is probably better in this aspect; Fung is now one of the top Pac 12 players, and freshman Wong seems to be really good. And they already snagged Gallagher.

2. #41 Jada Hart (UCLA) def. Shweta Sangwan (ORE) 6-2, 6-4

'Cookie Monster(she loves her cookies!)' was probably too powerful.

3. #46 Abi Altick (UCLA) vs. Julia Eshet (ORE) 1-6, 6-2, 3-1, unfinished

One thing I noticed, E's drop shot was really good. A good game plan, it seemed. Abi was probably too far back, or saw those too late. From the 2nd, her aggression got the better of E methinks.

4. #104 Terri Fleming (UCLA) vs. Julia Lilien (ORE) 6-4, 2-6, 2-1, unfinished

Fleming and Broomfield does tend to leak errors after long rallies(well who doesn't really at this level?  Hart too.). L's serve was quite effective.

5. Ayan Broomfield (UCLA) vs. Daniela Nasser (ORE) 6-4, 4-4, unfinished

B employed drop shot rather often. N really is quite good. Moves well, hits decently. Once responding to B's drop shot, reached it running forward, and made a perfect slice passing shot. Mind you she was moving at full speed, so not an easy shot to execute, at all. Probably the shot of the day. 

6. #118 Alaina Miller (UCLA) def. Paiton Wagner (ORE) 6-3, 6-1

Both aggressive hitters. M too good. As I said, verra looking forward to her match against Dzina! :)

Match Notes: Oregon 10-6; National ranking #20 UCLA 10-4; National ranking #15
Order of finish: Doubles (2,3); Singles (1,6,2) T-2:40

Now let's check ITF NPB draw, shall we.

UO at UCLA pics

I guess I traded this for like the first 35 minutes of doubles -_-

Again, didn't have much time, Sepulveda Basin-LA river

 Red-tailed Hawk
 Song Sparrow, sang

 Least Sandpiper?

It's really Spring. Swallows galore(Don't ask me to take those pics; only thousand-dollar-high speed camera can shoot it while flying!). Barn, Cliff, Tree, Northern Rough-Winged, Violet-green..


No info on the screen but just about the right height(cam). Connection seemed good. Except for that ghastly 30 second-commercial whenever I switched channels lol.  Wonder how many takes it took for her to make those goals :p

Scores from ND, again pasted doubles first.

Matches finished too fast for my liking, so can't really say much.

Coach Dasso wasn't wearing sunglasses, what a surprise, but of course, it being indoors...!

No. 26 Virginia 5, Notre Dame 1
Mar 18, 2018 at Eck Tennis Pavilion (Notre Dame, IN)

Methinks overall the Cavs were too powerful. Quite an impressive firepower. This year's ACC should be again, interesting. FSU is doing well, GT, of I want to watch Humberg(Louisville) and Wilcox(BC) again lol.  Didn't really know them so last year's trip to Rome was quite a boon, and an eye-opener for me!


The Dames' attempted lob a lot, but mostly got pounced; not easy to execute, those lobs.
Methinks all generally served well. And methinks the Cavs passed well.

1. Meghan Kelley/Rosie Johanson (VA) def. Brooke Broda/Allison Miller (ND) 6-2

2. Cassie Mercer/Chloe Gullickson (VA) def. Cameron Corse/Zoe Spence (ND) 6-4

Chloe's hair is dark? Can't really remember her natural hair Her big sis(2nd, to be exact?) was blond..or was she?  Too bad couldn't watch this much. Methinks the Cavs defended rather well.

3. Rachel Chong/Bess Waldram (ND) def. T. Radosavljevic/Erica Susi (VA) 6-2

Good to see Bess again, and she didn't disappoint :) Pretty much dominated the net, returned the Cavs' Lendl shots with ease, served well...  But what ghastly support is she wearing on her right knee, that looks like the same one Santamaria wore. Was she injured last season, hence wasn't operational?  Hope she's fine now?

And is Dunleavy injured as well? If so, tough luck.

1. Rosie Johanson (VA) def. Brooke Broda (ND) 7-5, 6-2

Don't think J played that well. 'Paleface' moved well, and surprisingly came up to the net quite often, not a bad execution either. Served well, could hit early..

Of those EB G16 elites(RLP era). Paleface is playing #1, McCarthy #2, Golovin #2-4 this year, and the most promising of all, Xep...I just can't.  Let's say I'm a very disappointed Trojan fan.

Methinks it's a bit of both; USC definitely stacked, or didn't know how to develop her game, and, she wasn't too keen in the 1st place. Collins transferred and worked her butt off, but Xep just retired. She actually didn't play National G18 AT ALL. Even though USC got her early(at least a year, maybe two methinks. But what the deuce is the use of getting her early if you're going to 'waste' her at #6??).  I was hoping she would at least do her very best during college, but maybe tennis wasn't too big a priority for her. Anyhow, she should've gone to UCLA or other schools. Clearly USC was a bad match for her.

Xep, Westby..that's just a tough example for the new USC coaching staff to overcome. In recruiting I mean. Can't develop big hitters? So what elites will even bother to consider USC?  That's the unfortunate legacy and the tragedy of USC imo.

2. Cassie Mercer (VA) def. Allison Miller (ND) 6-2, 6-1

I don't think Miller played even that bad. Good variety, moved well, hit well. Drop shot and lob combo. Mercer like Bleser, hit quite well. Couldn't really watch much though.  Both applauded the other's nice play methinks!

Dunno why those two didn't approach me and say hi as in that Winter National, at Rome last year :p  I of course was too busy 'soaking up' the matches! Ghastly humid too!  Now where is that pic..haha.

3. Meghan Kelley (VA) def. Cameron Corse (ND) 6-1, 6-3

Couldn't watch much either, too bad. Methinks C served well, but overall, not too good. K as usual, solid hitting. Attacked C's serve too?

4. Zoe Spence (ND) def. Chloe Gullickson (VA) 4-6, 7-5, 10-5

5. T. Radosavljevic (VA) def. Rachel Chong (ND) 6-3, 6-0

Couldn't watch but quite a surprising score. C was quite a good player during juniors.

6. Hunter Bleser (VA) def. Ally Bojczuk (ND) 6-2, 5-7, 11-9

I was really impressed with Bleser's hitting.  Surely she wasn't this good in juniors?? I do remember she was a decent doubles player, but oh my, her hitting was so good. Not just big; the fluid mechanism and all, fast hitting...was shocked really lol.  What did the coaches do to her?!

So that was a tough match for Ally for sure(how do you pronounce that last name?!). Sure she has good variety, but when Hunter is hitting that well..dunno what happened from 2nd set 5-2 or something, but she was moving and slicing well, as her wont. Serve and volley, good as usual. Hunter had a MTO later methinks, and she seemed rather sluggish during the match TB. Tight all the way, so left for UCLA.

 Order of finish: Doubles (1,3,2); Singles (2,3,5,1,6,4)

As I said before, methinks both teams recruited rather well, so looking forward to their progress. And of course Subhash is a huge add for the Cavs.
