Patty Dodd was so discouraged with her performance earlier this season that she almost quit playing on the Women's Professional Volleyball Assn. tour. After four successful seasons on the tour, the former UCLA All-American found herself in an unfamiliar situation after undergoing shoulder surgery. She had a difficult time hitting, her serves were ineffective and, as a result, finding a good partner was difficult.

With two feet planted firmly in the sand, Jackie Silva is finally finding some roots--in Redondo Beach. For the past four years, Silva has been the top player on the Women's Professional Volleyball Assn. beach tour. But the cosmopolitan lifestyle of a touring pro has gotten to be too much for Silva. She has spent summers playing beach tournaments on the fledgling women's tour in locales as disparate as Cleveland, Albuquerque, N.M., and Shonan Beach, Japan.

Last week's Hermosa Open was clearly agonizing for Jackie Silva. Clad in beige knee-length shorts and a white shirt, the Brazilian volleyball standout watched the center-court action from a nearby lounge chair under a large umbrella. It was an unfamiliar situation for the Redondo Beach resident, who is used to winning such events. With various partners, Silva has been a dominant force on the Women's Professional Volleyball Assn.

Jackie Silva may have finally found some roots in Redondo Beach, her adopted hometown. But Silva, the top player on the women's pro beach volleyball tour, is finding it a lot harder to settle on a partner to stand next to her in the sand for more than a few months--or weeks--at a time. Silva, a mercurial Brazilian, has dominated the women's tour for the last few years.
