2017 National] G18 singles 8/9

32 (2) Claire Liu d. Naomi Cheong 6-3; 6-2

Cheong was pure gold. Such a tense match. Her firepower was actually comparable to Liu, no kidding. No wonder she defeated Goldsmith in 2. Too bad couldn't watch much. L as usual charged the net to good effect, and her serve was also a factor methinks.

32 (15) Abigail Forbes d. (17) Cali Jankowski 7-5; 6-1

Oh Cali, I was hoping you could at least win a set this time...! Haha, too bad couldn't watch.

32 (8) Whitney Osuigwe d. Abigail Desiatnikov 6-2; 6-4

Wanted to watch more, D was returning with all her might against O's super aggression, managing to prolong the points. The match was getting interesting, but then that Baptiste guy came near so left.

32 (17) Katie Volynets d. (16) Chelsea Kung 3-6; 6-4; 6-1

Only watched the later 2nd set. K was quite good, this was a sorta marquee match, between recently dominating V and Winter National winner K. 

32 (3) Ashley Kratzer d. (17) Marlee Zein 6-3; 6-2

Just a glimpse.

32 (13) Elysia Bolton d. (33) Natasha Subhash 6-4; 6-3

Only managed to glimpse the final stage or something.

32 (6) Michaela Gordon d. (17) Alana Wolfberg 6-1; 6-2

Too bad couldn't watch W much yesterday, maybe I can watch her more today in singles.

32 Elvina Kalieva d. (17) Stephanie Schrage 6-4; 6-2

Watched some. Most points were long, S is an elite in that she is an aggressive hitter, and also being able to keep the ball in play. K outlasted, no small feat. She can now actually score drive winners after long rallies.

32 (33) Salma Ewing d. (9) Taylor Johnson 7-6(2); 6-2

Missed this but Ewing is having a heck of a tournament. Beat two huge power hitters in a row, Hewitt and now SJ.

32 (5) Ashley Lahey d. (17) Anika Yarlagadda 6-1; 6-3

Quite a score against a good defender like Y, the Soccer Girl must've been zoing yesterday.

32 (12) caty mcnally d. (17) Anna Brylin 6-1; 6-1

Too bad couldn't watch much. Many points ended in B's errors, including fh. As I said, her fh really is not bad, at all.

32 (4) Maria Mateas d. (33) Janice Shin 4-6; 6-3; 6-1

Wasn't too impressed with M, frankly. She's almost certain to turn pro(maybe she turned pro already?), asked her ages ago, but..couldn't really watch much though.

32 (11) Ellie Douglas d. (17) Hannah Zhao 6-2; 7-5

32 (33) Kelly Chen d. (7) Alexandra Sanford 6-4; 6-1

Chen came by earlier so told her Duke coaches are at faraway court 6 watching Jones vs Li haha. Likewise couldn't really watch much, but S's condition didn't seem too good this tournament. A tad too many errors, but C was able to prolong the rallies with her excellent defense.
Action of the day should be Alle initiating hug after match point! :)

32 (10) Ann Li d. (17) Alyvia Jones 2-6; 6-1; 6-0

Only could watch...what, like 2 to 3 or 4 games mid-1st set? As I said, watched Jones too much :)
Suitably impressive performance. Got broken, but just like against Meyer, broke right back.  What can I say, she's just one of my favorite players now. So aggressive and rock solid. Both offensively and defensively, flawless. Did make UEs seeing openings and going for it, but can't really blame it(just the execution lol).  Li did make some errors but some of them of were FEs, Jones was that good.

32 (1) Usue Arconada d. (17) Rachel Eason 6-1; 6-3

I'm getting senile part 1; I thought A was Desiatnikov. Yeah both are rather petite, but it's really unforgivable, me having actually chatted with Usue during ITF RSF last year or so lol(was then coached by...can't remember now, Janowicz?). Quite a composed performance, hence the seemingly routine score. But E was quite aggressive yesterday, and hit well.

R3 (33) Tatum Burger d. Julia Adams 6-3; 7-5

R3 Jennifer Gadalov d. (33) Jennifer Kerr 6-0; 6-3

Did I watch this? A bit? Gadalovism strikes again!

R3 Dominique Stone d. (33) Danielle Willson 6-2; 7-6(5)

Eh? A shocker. Too bad I missed this. Wonder where Willson will go..

R3 Lauren Lemonds d. (33) Toni Nelson 7-6(4); 6-3

Saw a bit, I said this some times but I was impressed with Lemonds a while ago at the National or something. Good enough, hit aggressively and well, albeit being a bit unstable. Took control of lots of points. Definitely a good win against Nelson..

R3 Sophia Edwards d. Haley Giavara Wo (inj)
R3 Valerie Ho d. (33) Rena Lin Wo (inj)

R3 Madison Hwang d. (33) Jessi Muljat 3-0Ret (inj)

H was quite good actually, just saw a bit, this match or the round before?

R3 Julia Haynes d. (33) Amber O'Dell 6-4; 6-4

Tried to watch some. Methinks rather even, O could certainly pressure H with her aggression.

R3 (33) Mia Rabinowitz d. Delara Zamani 7-5; 6-3

R was quite good, but I remember being impressed with her before. A quality match, methinks.

R3 (33) Sophia Graver d. Nicole Conard 6-4; 6-3

Watched a bit, quite a successful tournament already for Graver.

R3 (17) McCartney Kessler d. Madeline Almeida 6-4; 6-7

R3 (33) Grace Joyce d. Lily LaBiche 2-6; 6-3; 10-4

I thought J was playing well, but she actually lost the 1st set? Wait a minute L is from class of 2018? I thought she was younger lol. Suitably impressive tournament for her.

R3 Peyton Stearns d. (33) Andrea Cerdan 6-1; 6-3

Just glimpsed but realized this was Fed Cup redux lol(I watched that match for some time), so left. Impressive scoreline against a good hitter like C.

R3 (33) Kolie Allen d. Paulina Ferrari 6-3; 6-2
R3 Jayci Goldsmith d. Raissa Lou 6-2; 6-2

R3 (33) Sonia Tartakovsky d. (17) Rachel Lim 6-4; 6-2

I was shocked to discover Tart actually leading, watched a bit of the 2nd set, rather a glimpse. I only saw her for the 1st time this ISC, and she actually seems to have progressed leaps and bounds since then lol. Defeated Allen at Fed Cup last match, and now Lim, that's damn impressive.

R3 (33) Julia Lilien d. Alyssia Fossorier 6-4; 6-1

R3 (14) Hailey Baptiste d. Maryann Rompf 3-6; 6-4; 10-8

Maryann Rompf should be a strong contender for the Player of the Day 2 days in a row lol. Harassed Eason to no end, and now B? I wasn't counting on her to stop B, but what an effort. Too bad!

R3 (33) Niluka Madurawe d. Emilee Duong 6-4; 6-1
R3 (33) Amanda Meyer d. Jenna Sloan 6-3; 6-2

R3 (17) Samantha Martinelli d. (33) Julia Deming 6-4; 6-7(5); 10-5

This match was literally neverending lol. For sure M is the bigger hitter, but D seemed to have managed to prolong the rallies, she's a solid player with good variety. Too bad couldn't watch her much this tournament, but I may've seen her enough, so...:)

R3 Julieanne Bou d. (17) Sara Choy Wo (inj)
R3 Alexa Butera d. Annalise Klopfer 6-1; 6-4
R3 (33) Sophia Patel d. Hailey Wilcox 2-6; 6-3; 10-7
R3 Jessica Anzo d. (33) Maeve Koscielski 6-0; 6-2

R3 (33) Catherine Gulihur d. (17) Ivana Corley 6-4; 6-4

I deem this as an upset.

R3 (33) Maia Sung d. Solymar Colling Wo (inj)
R3 Alee Clayton d. Victoria Emma Wo (inj)

R3 Ava Markham d. (33) Katherine Nguyen 6-2; 6-4

M seemed quite good, when I had a glimpse.

3Q Julia Adams d. Taylor Gruber 6-4; 7-6(2)

3Q Jennifer Gadalov d. (33) Vanessa Streng 3-6; 6-2; 10-8

Did I see S for the first time? She's rather petite but has plenty of firepower, was impressed. That was not an easy win for G, for sure.

3Q Dominique Stone d. Tayvia Yamagata 6-4; 6-3
3Q Lauren Lemonds d. Samantha Mannix 6-4; 6-2

3Q Sophia Edwards d. Sidnee Lavatai 6-4; 6-4

3Q Madison Hwang d. Priyanka Mitta 6-1; 6-1

3Q Julia Haynes d. Mackenzie Clark 6-3; 6-3

I think I watched this match a bit. C was pretty good, hitting aggressively.

3Q (33) Mia Rabinowitz d. Christina Hand 6-4; 6-2
3Q Nicole Conard d. Slade Coetzee 6-4; 6-1
3Q Madeline Almeida d. Emma Cartledge 6-1; 6-4

3Q Lily LaBiche d. Jennifer Richards 7-5; 4-1Ret (inj)

Just watched some. That's definitely a very good win against R.

3Q Peyton Stearns d. Imani Graham 6-1; 6-3

S too good. G could generate winners redirecting pace. There was an argument or something later so left. Coach Balogh, etc. were watching this match.

3Q Paulina Ferrari d. Sarah Campbell 2-6; 6-2; 10-4

Impressive by Soup.

3Q Raissa Lou d. Katherine Earnhardt 6-3; 6-2

3Q (17) Rachel Lim d. Elena Van Linge 6-2; 7-5

VL was playing well actually, mixing it up with variety and aggression.

3Q Alyssia Fossorier d. Somer Henry Wo (pc)
3Q (14) Hailey Baptiste d. Mimi Levine 6-1; 6-3

3Q Emilee Duong d. Sydney Jones 7-6(8); 6-1

Quite a win? Purdue must be pleased(just rechecked and no info on TRN? I thought she was going to Purdue).
3Q Jenna Sloan d. Emily Strande 6-4; 2-0Ret (inj)
3Q (17) Samantha Martinelli d. (33) Ashley Yeah 6-0; 4-6; 10-4 3Q Julieanne Bou d. Casey Accola 6-4; 6-2

3Q Alexa Butera d. Elvena Gevargiz 7-(5); 6-4

Watched some. Had to watch G. Where's Peus by the way. Hope she bounces back.
Anyhow, G certainly was the better hitter, but also more unstable. Quite a win by B I'd say.

3Q Hailey Wilcox d. Julia Ronney 6-4; 6-7(3); 10-7

A decent match, methinks. R, not bad.

3Q (33) Maeve Koscielski d. Jennamarie Gordon 6-4; 3-6; 10-8
