    has anyone seen this girl hit? she has an amazing one handed backhand. the ball just seems to explode off of her raquet on her groundstrokes. her serve isnt much but off the ground she is amazing. she hits very flat.
    she seems very calm and poised in between points. she seems to play very relexed and effortless but the ball really explodes off of her racquet.

    She's from Norcal and has beautiful strokes. Watched her hit a bunch with Jenny Yen from Stanford.

    Yeah she's a local player. I've seen her play at a few tournaments. Even at 14 she was already hitting clean powerful strokes. She was ranked very high throughout juniors in norcal.

    I remember Aeriel and indeed her strokes are beautiful. Her brother is also a very good player.

    As a current student at UT, I might have to stop by and have a look at her! Thanks for the heads up everybody.

    I wonder if she's going to play in that USTA tournament in Austin this weekend.

    I was going to go (from University of Houston) but there was an incident and the officer in charge of grouping people into classes decided to dump the class that I was going to be placed into, so now I can't go.

    beautiful game, another NorCal girl to watch Ellen Tsay is training at Newcombe ranch, must be something about Texas......Ariel and Ellen played a great final at Stead Open this year.

    Wrong. You were never at the club we played at, doctor.
