It's eight years later, and Lindsey Nelson is all grown up. Nelson, who won the girls' 14-and-under division championship at the Ojai Valley tennis tournament in 1999, showed Sunday that her game has matured nicely since then and has even improved markedly from last year. The USC junior routed California junior Susie Babos, 6-2, 6-2, to claim the Pacific 10 Conference singles championship at Libbey Park in a rematch of the 2006 NCAA final won last May by Babos.

Judging by the trash-talking, shot-making, tension-filled set between Canyon's Tracy Lin and Villa Park's Lindsey Nelson last week, it appears there is a legitimate and, yes, bitter rivalry brewing. Is that good for tennis and are these freshmen good for each other? Probably. Were John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors good for the sport and for each other? Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras?

Now Lindsey Nelson knows why she has been dreaming of this moment since she was 8. Although she didn't play her best tennis Monday afternoon, Nelson took a lot of nice memories away from her first match in a professional tournament, a 6-3, 6-0 loss to Australian Rachel McQuillan in the qualifying of the Tennis Masters Series Indian Wells. Nelson, a freshman at Villa Park High, was unfortunate in drawing the 69th-ranked McQuillan, the top-seeded player in qualifying. But she didn't seem to mind.

For two sets, Lindsey Nelson battled nerves and Kady Pooler's surprisingly advanced all-court game. But once Nelson conquered her nerves, Pooler's game didn't seem so advanced. Nelson, an eighth-grader from Orange, defeated Pooler, a Dana Hills freshman, 7-6 (7-3), 3-6, 6-0, Tuesday in the girls' 16 semifinals of the Quiksilver/Roxy Junior Open at Los Caballeros Racquet Club. The first two sets took 90 minutes. The last set was over in 15 minutes.

Villa Park High freshman Lindsey Nelson is proving she's not only one of the best young American tennis players in the country, but one of the toughest too.
