2013 Southern California Open Preview

Hey Tennis Friends!

Yesterday, I dropped by the first day of the qualifying at the La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California to get a preview of the Southern California Open!

Women’s Qualifying Singles
Coco Vandeweghe d. Stephanie Hoffpauir 6-2, 6-3
Hoffpauir was the runner-up for the final of the pre-qualifying event, but was fortunate enough to receive a wild card for the qualifying despite the loss. Looking at the other Main Draw wild cards in this tournament, it’s a mystery to me why Coco was not granted one.

Maria Elena Camerin d. Elizabeth Lumpkin 6-3, 6-4
Lumpkin won the pre-qualifying final, yet was listed as a wild card for the qualifying draw. That’s an odd designation since she had to work hard, through four matches, to earn her way in.

  1. I enjoyed the coverage, especially since you showed the ranking of the player(s). Will watch as they progress in their rankings.

    Hi there,
    great coverage by the way!
    Would you happy to know where we could watch the action live online on wednesday? It doesn’t seem to be broadcasted anywhere. I would buy a ticket however unfortunately I am in London and won’t make it by then! Thank you!

  3. Thank you Tina and Rachael!
    Unfortunately, I have not seen any television, or web cameras set up yet 🙁 There are platforms for the television cameras, so, they will eventually be here. Here is the link for the TV schedule for this tournament:
