USC's #1 singles

Leimbach
Nelson
Fink
Sanchez
Scandalis/Santamaria
Olmos
Katz

It's called a downward spiral.

I've already mentioned USC singles 1&2's disastrous results at the slams when they lost; their ultimate limitation.

FYI Katz should be competing against the likes of Dzina Milovanovic, who's playing #5 for Pepperdine. The problem is, there's no Trojan who can absolutely say that she's loads better than Katz lol.  Yes it's that bad for the Trojans.

I mean Katz is playing #1 while Xepoleas was stuck at #6..it's really laughable, considering USC's lack of talents(USC is NOT Stanford or Florida, for chrissake).
And Xepoleas even came a year early; what for???! one has to ask.

Did it even work? Of course it backfired. Just look at the cold hard facts(result from USC);
