MATCHES LOOKING FAIRLY GOOD FOR DUKE

capra rolling now after an ugly first few games - she should win

kahan looking really good up 5-2, hard-fought but i like the way she's playing and her body language - i'd bet she takes it

turewicz is a strange player - like reka from a year or two ago in a lot of ways, but hasn't elevated her craftiness to that same level of course - she won the first set but in a lot of ways that match is in the hands of her opponent - hopefully the UVA player continues to struggle / get frustrated with the stuff coming to her

NOT SURE YET

i love clayton's heart out there - fought off at least one set point with some ridiculous scrambling - i'm not sure there's a player out there that makes her opponent work more for points - so here's hoping that work pays off against a strong UVA player in the end - i think it will be tough for UVA to recover if clayton wins the first (5-5 now, was 5-3 UVA at the time of set point(s))

goldfeld and hardenbergh have been neck and neck all season, i wouldn't want to bet on this one

MATCHES LOOKING LESS GOOD FOR DUKE

Mar is a heck of a fighter also, and in some ways has the more all-around game of the two on that court, but Xi looks to be a bit too much for her to handle from the baseline
