Stanford junior Krista Hardebeck made it past the first two rounds of qualifying, but fell in the third and final round at the USTA Player Development Women's $50,000 Classic in Carson. The event is on the International Tennis Federation circuit.
Two former Stanford teamates, Kristie Ahn and Nicole Gibbs, already are in the main draw. Ahn received a wild card while Gibbs is the No. 2 seed.
Gibbs will open against Elie while Ahn takes on qualifier Danielle Lao on Wednesday. Should Ahn and Gibbs win their openers, they'll face each other in the second round.
Gibbs is hoping for a return visit to the annual Bank of the West Classic, which will be held July 28-Aug. 3 at Stanford's Taube Family Tennis Center.
Gibbs received a wild card into the tournament last year and played alongside ex-Cardinal Mallory Burdette.
