Scott Lipsky And David Martin Reach Semifinals Of Pac-10 Doubles Championship

April 26, 2002

OJAI, Calif. - Stanford University juniors Scott Lipsky (Merrick, NY) and David Martin (Tulsa, OK) advanced to the semifinals of the Pacific-10 Conference Doubles Championship on Friday afternoon at Libbey Park.

Lipsky and Martin, who are ranked second in the nation and were All-Americans a year ago, opened the tournament with a 9-7 victory over unranked Jason Menke and Martin Pawlowski of Oregon. The Cardinal juniors then rolled to an 8-4 quarterfinal win over Arizona's Steven Capriati and Carl Hagman to improve to 33-7 overall this season and 17-5 against Pac-10 opposition. The win was Lipsky and Martin's third in as many tries this season over the unranked Capriati and Hagman.

The Stanford duo will face 55th-ranked Tobias Clemens and Lassi Ketola of UCLA in semifinal action on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Libbey Park. In the only previous meeting between the two teams this season, Lipsky and Martin recorded an 8-3 victory in the ITA All-American Quarterfinals on October 12 in Stone Mountain, Georgia.

Stanford's other entrant in the Pac-10 Doubles Championship - freshmen Phil Sheng (Thousand Oaks, CA) and Sam Warburg (Sacramento, CA) - fell 8-3 in the first round to John Paul Fruttero and Robert Kowalczyk of California.

In the Pacific-10 Conference Doubles Invitational, Stanford's team of sophomore Joe Kao (Fullerton, CA) and senior Chris Meyer (Berkeley, CA) received a first round bye before dropping an 8-1 quarterfinal decision to Arizona's Tom Lloyd and Colin O'Grady.

In the Pac-10 Singles Championship, Stanford junior Ryan Haviland's (Aiken, SC) impressive run came to and end in the quarterfinals. The 52nd-ranked Haviland, who upset the 35th-ranked Capriati in the second round on Thursday, fell to 21st-ranked Marcin Matkowski of UCLA 6-1, 7-5 on Friday.

The Pac-10 Individual Championships, which were delayed for several hours by rain on Friday morning, will continue on Saturday with the singles and doubles semifinals as well as consolation bracket competition.
