Pac-12 Announces Tennis Players of the Week
SAN FRANCISCO - The Conference office announced today that Martin Redlicki of UCLA was named Pac-12 Men's Tennis Player of the Week while STANFORD's Caroline Lampl was voted Women's Tennis Player of the Week for action during the week of April 11-17.
Redlicki (Boca Raton, Fla.), currently ranked No. 45 in the country, won both of his matches last week and clinched the Pac-12 regular season title for UCLA when he downed USC’s No. 43 Nick Crystal in three sets. After taking the first set, 7-5, Redlicki dropped the second, 2-6. The Bruins led the Trojans 3-2 with two matches still playing. On court 2, Redlicki jumped to an early 3-1 lead in the third and never looked back. The Bruin held on to take the match and clinch for UCLA. In doubles, fourth-ranked Redlicki and partner Mackenzie McDonald defeated No. 42 Crystal and Laurens Verboven, 6-4. This is Redlicki's third-career weekly honor and the 30th all-time for the Bruins.
Lampl (Bluemont, Va.) clinched her team-high fifth match with a dramatic win at the No. 5 spot, beating No. 1 California's No. 114 Olivia Hauger 5-7, 6-4, 6-3. The Cardinal, which has won 11 of last 16 meetings against Golden Bears, handed No. 1 California its first loss of the season. Stanford (13-5, 8-1 Pac-12) and USC will face off on Wednesday and the winner will claim the Pac-12 regular season title. Lampl is 20-4 overall, 15-2 in duals, 11-0 against Pac-12 opponents and has won seven in a row. This honor is the first of her career and the first of the season for the Cardinal. In program history, Stanford has garnered 19 weekly accolades.
