8/9 G16 MD Singles

32 michelle xu d. Lahari Yelamanchili 6-4; 6-3
32 (9) Rachel Eason d. (17) Anna Brylin 6-3; 6-3

32 (6) Katie Volynets d. (17) Lea Ma 5-7; 7-5; 6-0

Ma had a perfect game plan. Send to Katie's backhand, and bounce it high to trouble shorter Katie; then up the pace and pounce the weak returns. Used size to maximum effect. Could she've come up to the net to pressure Katie as well? Dunno.  Anyhow, Katie overcome that dilemma, by...just doing her thing I guess. hitting verra well. Didn't watch from the last moment of 2nd set, had to watch other matches.

32 (17) Salma Ewing d. (9) Hannah Lairmore 6-3; 6-0

Shocking. Ewing must've been on today.

32 (4) Nicole Mossmer d. (17) Anika Yarlagadda 6-4; 6-4

Anika was aggressive as usual, probably scored more outright drive winners. Moved pretty well, too. Still Nicole used variety to good effect I guess.

32 (9) Chloe Beck d. (17) Dasha Kourkina 7-6; 6-2

32 (17) Emma Navarro d. (8) Chelsea Kung 6-0; 6-1

Shocking score. Forgot to check this match out, too bad.

32 (9) Briana Crowley d. Somer Henry 6-1; 6-4
32 (9) Andrea Cerdan d. Luba Vasilyuk 6-2; 6-2

32 Nikki Redelijk d. (7) Rachel Lim 6-1; 4-6; 6-1

Only could watch the later 2nd methinks, Nikki is another new find; hit verra well.

32 (9) Hailey Baptiste d. (17) Lauren Stein 6-3; 6-2

Too bad I missed this, SDSU probably.

32 victoria hu d. (3) Cali Jankowski 6-2; 6-3

Not much rallies when I watched. Granted Hu was a very good hitter(I see that she's class of 2020, TRN #16. Cali was the bigger hitter, but as usual, too many errors, tried maybe too hard to finish it early. Definitely could do some rallying, but methinks her anticipation and defensive movement is not top notch, yet. In that regard, maybe not so dissilmilar to say Lexi Milunovich; when on, practically untouchable; like Lexi's National match against Riley McQuaid. But both Lexi and Cali sometimes go for too much, and nets tons, etc. Patience is a virtue, just like in birding!

32 (9) Sedona Gallagher d. (17) Carolyn Campana 6-2; 5-7; 7-5

Didn't they also have a tight match at EB.

32 (17) Julia Haynes d. Julia Deming 6-2; 6-0 32 Jennifer Kerr d. Amaya LopezClay 7-6; 6-1

32 (1) Amber O'Dell d. Charlotte Owensby 6-3; 6-2

Owensby has massive talent. Has terrific variety and can attack the corner with ease, Amber was on the defensive tons of times. Still Amber's power and hustle prevailed I guess, as the older player.
