Pac 12 dominance

Yeah it's mostly Stanford, but even when they couldn't make it to the final, UCLA and CAL. made it. I don't even know when was the last time PAC 12 teams failed to make NCAA final. 1995? Other teams really should try harder lol. Even though PAC 12 teams gets screwed in ranking and hence seeding...true dominance, that.

Bellis] Stanford vs Cal., who will win?

We all know that the class of 2017 is the dream class.

And that whoever gets perennial no.1 of that class, Cici Bellis, will be the winner.

Yes she defeated Cibulkova, but she's still young, and not likely to grow taller. Didn't do well at junior slams, either(taller Dolehide has done better at USO).
Swept ISC and EB, but Hardebeck did it too, and she's a Card.
Capra, who actually made it to 3rd rd of USO, plays for Duke.

So certainly, her playing college is a possible scenario.

She'll most likely choose between Stanford and Cal., to be sure. They have 'loaned' their star players as practice partners, so time to pay back the favor lol.

I really hope she chooses Cal.  Cal. really has been unfortunate, being 0-2 in the NCAA finals(in 2009 their #4 player Ilcinkas got injured during the dbls match and couldn't play sgls either -_- ).
This year, they were huge favorite as Pac12 winner yet lost to Stanford in a heartbreaker, just like last year's USC. I heard that a violation cost them a mp for the last deciding sgls match. Talk about misfortune.

And I do think Cal.'s snappy uniform suits Cici's slender flame better...lol!
But it's her life, and her decision. So we'll see.

Anyhow, let the recruiting battle begin. :devil:

P.S. Well even if Cal. loses Cici to Stanford, plenty of choices including red-hot McKenzie(whoever bagels Desiatnikov?)

P.P.S. TF savant Corswandt complains about the nickname Cici on his twitter:

"Why would someone replace awesome, patrician-sounding names like "Catherine Cartan" by a lapdog name like "CiCi"? "

I guess it's a matter of taste..call it old fashioned, typical European? Lol.

Lampl to Stanford??!

What happened to Vandy, eh? lol.


Great add for sure, since Caro is a big hitter. Suits Stanford's hard hitting style as well, I guess.


Does this mean Yee will go to an Ivy school..???!!!!

Edit: Stanford is still trying to get Yee. When that happens...oops!

2014 WAATC] How many Sassenachs are left

Horn , Barnett & Beazant lost in PQ.

Borthwick advanced and will play sgls in Q, dbls in MD.

Watts sisters are playing Q dbls.

Beazant is in MD dbls.

Elite school's lineup next season

Recruits per class

Duke

Capra
Scholl Smith
Makarova
McCarthy, Ho, Hamlin

Christ this is a championship lineup.

UNC

Kay Dai Vialle
Loeb Carter
Vazquez Akkerman
COP Aney

Could harass the cross town rival lol, boasts plenty of depth. Of course it would be more helpful if Loeb stays. They will miss Price, for sure.

Virginia

Elbaba Collins Nauta Epstein Morton
Faure
Mercer
Chang

Not a dark horse anymore, a perfectly legitimate title contender.

Clemson

2014-15 Roster

NameHt.Yr.Hometown (Prev School)
Clousing, Keisha5-10Fr.Wheaton, Ill. (Wheaton Warrenville South)
Dewar, Tristen5-3Jr.Bradenton, FL (IMG Academy)
Eidukonyte, Joana5-8Jr.Vilnius, Lithuania (Vilnius Jeruzale Secondary School)

Pederzani, Carola5-6Jr.Brescia, Italy (Liceo Scientifico Calini)
Rompies, Jessy5-5Jr.Jakarta, Indonesia
Ruiz, Daniela5-8Fr.Beni, Bolivia
Will miss Yana, but certainly has depth. Didn't Joana do well last season. CU dbls is good too, no? ACC certainly boasts strong depth. Watch out for BC too, for that matter. But Romy and Beatrice graduates...wonder who they're looking for? Should ask coach...

GT

Lots of tall players, could be quite competitive, especially in dbls with Kurey as well. Let's see who they recruit next yr.

Miami

Wagner is senior, and they recruited well methinks. But will lose 3 players?

Florida

Morgan
Liang Keegan Woolcock Stojic
Austin Kuhlman Porter
?

Yes we all are afraid of the Gators lol.

Georgia

Garcia King
Brinson
Gould King Patterson
Shaffer

Plenty of hard hitters, this team could be real exciting.

Alabama

Jansen Maynetto
Routliffe Spielmann
Dunn Grenne
Daniell

Pretty competitive, to be sure. Because Daniell is very good.

Vanderbilt

Altick Colton Sellyn Yates
Campbell
..
Lampl

Casares & Antal will be missed. But still have decent depth, and like Daniell for Bama, Lampl will be a huge add.
EDIT; Lampl goes to Stanford, too bad.

Michigan

Yurovsky
Ucros Remynse
Ruder-Hook Najarian
Fahey Minor

Looks pretty formidable to me. Plenty of good dbls players to start with.

UND

Gleason Vrabel
Robinson Closs Fennelly
Broda Miller

Can they recruit some decent player for next season? Still, I think they can challenge Michigan for the Midwest supremacy.

NU

Similar to GT? Young and good dbls players. Can Rooney step up? She has beaten Porter at the National..

TAMU

Mamalat Deheza Hristov Boczova
Pierson Gavrilovska Bhosale
Paalma

Great add in getting Pierson, and Paalma already shocked the USC team at BU.
Trust coach Joffe to produce results. Really wanted them to win the title last year..haha.
It'll be hard to duplicate that dramatic run, with all those great players graduating.  They could be better next season actually, since they have no seniors this season.

Baylor

Generette James-Baker
Shankle
Anderson
Anderson Profit

Looks pretty good, but they will certainly miss Burgic.

Texas

Addison Groenvynck
Batra Horn Koprcina
Foster Wagland
?

Well, two freshmen were good enough to qualify in doubles at UCLA, that's a great result. Addison is senior so..it'll be interesting against Texan rivals.

UCLA

McPhillips Harrison
Brady Shaffer
Magill Wiley Fleming
Andrews

Can the Bruins achieve 3 peat? If Brady stays, why not. Also boasts strong depth.

USC

Olmos
Katz
Smith Westby Xepoleas
Failla Letzt Valdes

Potential is there. Depth-wise, comparable to any team. Believe? Can they win the dbls point?

California

Chi Fabikova
Starr Manasse
Popovic
?

With Susanyi, methinks Cal. can aim again for the championship this season. But next season? We'll see who they'll recruit.

Stanford

Hardebeck Kostas
Zhao Davidson Doyle
none
Lampl

Perennial contender. If Yee comes, will she be the savior like Hardebeck. And let's hope Krista gets her act together from this season haha.
Edit: Snagged Lampl from Vandy lol, now watch out.

It's safe to assume that Stanford is aiming for Yee. I mean who wouldn't lol. Duke already recruited 3 accomplished players, and UCLA lineup is chock full now. No seniors for Florida this season. That leaves Stanford and the Ivies.

Looks like Cal. will get another foreign player to replace Susanyi? Kevakian & Oosterhout are interested by the way, both good players.
