2017 EB G16 3/28 recap

MJF spotted when I came by to watch(actually had to wait for a bit) Despain vs Crawley. NU and UW coaches were there as usual. Was coach Dasso interested in Despain..or was she watching the next court's  match.

32 (2) Dasha Kourkina d. Alexandra Yepifanova 6-4; 6-1
32 (16) Elle Christensen d. Lindsay Hung 6-3; 6-3

32 Fiona Crawley d. Ali Despain 2-6; 6-4; 6-1

Only could watch...1st set? Who arrived later, Ava! She was today in a all-white attire, even shoe lol. Quite a husky voice, whispered 'Go Fiona'(now another even more boyish voice is Car Branstine's, at IW last season! Met the whole family, her, Constance and her mom at Starbucks and her mom and I hugged in delight!)!
And was smart enough to let me have a clean view of the court :)  I remember naming her GG last year. Not Gossip Girl, Golden Girl! Or Gigi? lol.
Fiona even chatted with Ava a bit on the court lol.

Later Navarro also came, with another player, dunno who lol, sorry!
Now the woman(with the Laurel Springs bag?! Where can I get one?) didn't seem like the woman who was having a good time yesterday during Fiona's doubles match? Who really is Fiona's mom..haha.

Well the match was pretty even methinks, that's all I can say haha, Fiona played better later on, such as drop shot and lob combo. Ali yelled quite often!
Obviously I watched this since both were good(otherwise why should I forfeit watching G18 singles matches, eh?); and indeed, went to 3!

R1 Makayla Mills d. Ellie Coleman 4-6; 6-1; 11-9

Coleman lost to Guevara in 3 yesterday so had a peek, but dunno who was who lol. Not bad, the match itself. The one with a orange? cap performed a 'leg-thru' for me!
Only could watch a bit before heading to court 15 to watch Despain vs Crawley.

16 (2) Hrastar/Navarro d. Crawley/Graham 6-0; 6-1

H/N too good, too powerful. Won the drive contest, painting the lines and such. Graham wasn't a match for Navarro, no shame since N is just too good at this level.

16 Gallagher/Taggart d. Lynch/Wooten 6-1; 6-0 16 (3) Despain/Guevara d. Kaplan/Pietrowicz 6-1; 6-2 16 Dawson/Wagner d. (5) Broerman/Yaloz 6-2; 6-3 16 Garcia Gross/Yellayi d. Huang/Lee 6-2; 7-6(3) 16 (4) Cusano/Goldsmith d. Anzalotta/Howard 6-1; 6-0 16 Boch-Collins/Pursell d. Fleischman/Koenig 6-2; 6-4

16 Cayetano/Hayer d. (1) Crowley/Tran 7-6(5); 0-6; 10-4

I mean it may not be an upset, because both C and H are very good(hence my watching the match, forfeiting G18 doubles!), but oh Briana haha. I should 'report' to coach Manasse whom I had a nice chat at the restroom during WAATC last Fall! :p

Quite even, both defending and attacking well. Had to leave later after H/N won(had to climb the wall to watch both matches!). Hayer as usual showed her class! Her drives and volleys, good enough :)
