Two Freshman Earn Their Way to Singles Championship Matches at The Ojai

April 29, 2006

OJAI, Calif. - Making her first appearance at the Conference championships, USC freshman Amanda Fink defeated two-time runner-up Alice Barnes of Stanford this morning in the semifinals of the Pac-10 Individual Tennis Championships at The Ojai.

Having lost in straight sets to Barnes earlier this month, 10th-ranked Fink fought back to pull out a 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 upset. In tomorrow's championship, Fink will face California's Suzi Fodor, who defeated USC's Lindsey Nelson in straight sets, 6-1, 6-1.

California and USC each own one women's singles championship dating back to 1987. Raquel Kops-Jones won the crown in 2004 for Cal, while USC's Nicole Leimbach defeated Barnes in last year's championship match.

The men's championship final will feature two members of the Stanford Cardinal. James Wan, a junior who reached the quarterfinals last year, defeated his Cardinal opponent, KC Corkery, 6-3, 6-3 in the semifinals. No. 17 James Bruch, a freshman, pulled off a 6-2, 7-6 (8) upset over fourth-ranked California senior Conor Niland to play for the Conference individual title.

Stanford has had 10 men's singles champions dating back to 1987.

UCLA's Mathieu Dehaine and Jeremy Drean and fellow Bruins Philipp Gruendler and Benjamin Kohlloeffel will take part to determine the men's doubles crown, while Stanford's Barnes and Anne Yelsey look to defend their Pac-10 title against California's Suzi Babos and Fodor on the women's side.

Both invitational singles finals will pit Stanford against UCLA. Jessica Nguyen will represent the Cardinal and Ashley Joelson will play for the Bruins in the women's final, while Stanford's Blake Muller and UCLA's Drean will go head-to-head in the men's invitational championship.

The final day of competition begins Sunday at 8 a.m., with the women's singles championship taking place at Libbey Park at 9:30 a.m., followed by the men's championship at 11 a.m.
