FARMERS BRANCH, Tex. - Stanford sophomore Laura Granville (Chicago, IL) won her second straight ITA Indoor singles title Sunday afternoon at the Rolex National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships, the third leg of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Grand Slam at the Brookhaven Country Club.
Granville, defeated No. 2 Ansley Cargill of Duke 6-3, 6-7 (4), 6-3 to become Stanford's fourth straight women's singles champion at the Indoor Championships. Prior to college, Granville and Cargill had met several times playing for U.S. junior titles. Granville won the last meeting 6-3, 6-4 in the 1999 UTSA Girls 18-and-under national final in San Jose, Calif. The two were also doubles partners that year and fell in the national doubles final.
With Sunday's win, Granville improved her winning streak to 54 matches dating back to last season and now has an impressive 66-2 record in her Stanford career (19-0 as a sophomore this year).
Last night, Granville captured the women's doubles title with Gabriela Lastra (Reno, NV). Granville became the fifth women's player to have swept the Rolex singles and doubles titles, and Stanford's Julie Scott was the last to do it in 1998.
