2015 USTA League Nationals 18 & over 5.0+ Women semi-finals are set, up to date prediction here

The semi-finals for the 18+ 5.0+ Women are set.  I'm guessing a bit on the match-ups since TennisLink doesn't show them yet.

In one semi, Eastern, #3 seed in their flight, will play Southern, top seed from their flight.

The other semi has Southern Cal, top seed in their flight, playing Florida, the wildcard.

This means the pre-Nationals, #3, #4, #6, and #13 teams advanced.

But when factoring in the play at Nationals, the top-8 averages for each team would predict Southern and Southern Cal advancing to the final with Southern 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.
