2015 USTA League Nationals 18 & over 4.0 Women semi-finals are set, up to date prediction here

The semi-finals for the 18+ 4.0 Women are set.

In one semi, Northern Cal, top seed from the 5-team flight, will play Florida, third seed from their flight.

The other semi has Pacific Northwest, the bottom seed in their flight, playing Midwest, the #2 seed in their flight.

This means the pre-Nationals, #1, #7, #11, and #16 teams advanced.

But when factoring in the play at Nationals, the top-8 averages for each team would predict Northern Cal and Midwest advancing to the final with Northern Cal winning it all.  This of course assumes top-8 averages represent how a team match will go, but who actually plays and getting favorable match-ups is equally as important.  And it appears some teams may not have their top-8 at Nationals, so it should be interesting.
