UCLA Stuns Top-Ranked Stanford, 4-2 in NCAA Semifinals

May 21, 2007

Athens, Ga. - The No. 12 seeded UCLA women's tennis team is one win away from capturing the school's first ever NCAA title in women's tennis, as the Bruins upset top-seeded Stanford, 4-2 in the semifinals Monday evening. The victory snaps a 20-match losing streak to the Cardinal. UCLA's last victory in the series was a 5-4 win back on April 3, 1998.

UCLA (21-7) will face either third-seeded Georgia Tech or 10th-seeded Cal in the NCAA final on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. (EST). That can be seen live on ESPNU.
