Intriguing questions for 2017(2)

Two more;

Who'll be the 'Lord of the Ring' ?!

Will the 'spell' of Alfred A. Ring Tennis Complex be broken this year. They have not lost at home since gazillion years ago, even now when they host Stanford every other year.

'Taube magic' was finally broken in 2011 NCAA team final(and since then by UF, other teams have won there, SMC, Cal, UCLA..).

'Usual suspects' this season;

Ok. St. on Feb. 18
Stanford on Feb. 19 (back to back match for the Gators)
UGA on Mar. 17

====

Who can stop Francesca Di Lorenzo from winning unprecedented(not sure) 4 singles slams. She has only NCAA left.

Last season she lost to Breaunna Addison at NCAA. At WAATC last season, she lost to Ellen Perez. Other than those 2 slam losses, she lost to Stefani, Krawczyk, Wagner. She did not play Collins(did lose to her at pro event). And she has not lost a set to Carter during those 3 encounters(one at WAATC last season, two at WAATC and NIIC this season).

Curiously, except Stefani, she lost to aggressive flat hitters(I think Addison is one? Maybe not as aggressive at Perez, but still..). Which means, if you can pierce her incredible defense, you have chance(still, she did beat Shibahara and Chi, two outstanding Freshmen attackers).

Her results this season from ITA;
