Augustine Prepares for Acura Classic Qualifying; Virginia's Boland Gets St. Cloud Salute

Just a couple of quick links today, the first a San Diego Union-Tribune piece by Jerry Magee about Brittany Augustine, who has won a spot in the upcoming WTA Tier 1 Acura Classic qualifying later this month.

Last week Virginia men's tennis coach Brian Boland got the "Where Are They Now?" treatment from the St. Cloud Minnesota Times, who detail his journey from young tennis camper to D-I head coach in this article.

Britany Augustine looked like a potential pro prospect when she was about 12 or 13 and winning super national titles. Unfortunately, she was apparently full grown at that age and now appears to be the same height at 15 years old and turning 16 this Fall. I doubt if she is even taller than 5 ft. 3 in.

I also haven't seen her do very well in tournaments lately, particularly ITF's. However, if someone has information that contradicts my information, I would like to hear it, as I don't claim to be the expert on what she's been up to.

Also, I recall that she had a website that appeared to be seeking financial contributions to her professional career. Does anyone know if she turned pro or whether this will affect her amateur status?
