Sumantri Falls In Pac-10 Singles Quarterfinals

April 23, 2004

OJAI, Calif. - Washington's ninth-ranked women's tennis team will be without a representative in the main singles or doubles draws at the Pac-10 Championships heading into the weekend, as junior Dea Sumantri fell to 14th-ranked Dianne Hollands of Arizona in their quarterfinal meeting. Sumantri took the first set easily, 6-1, but Hollands came back to win the second and third sets 6-2 and 7-5. Both Husky doubles teams in the main draw lost in the first round today.

The Huskies struggled all year with doubles play in dual matches, and both UW duos dropped their first round matches today. Sumantri and senior Claire Carter, ranked ninth in the nation, were upset 8-2 by the Stanford pair of Emilia Anderson and Anne Yelsey. Senior Erin Hoe and sophomore Dinka Hazic also came up short, losing 8-3 to the 38th-ranked team of Nicole Havlicek and Jody Scheldt of Cal.

In the Invitational draws, sophomore Stephanie Svanfeldt lost a tough three set quarterfinal to Sabrina Caponnolo of Arizona State, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-3. The Invitational Doubles bracket saw two UW teams pick up first round wins. Junior Mugette Ahn and freshman Saskia Nauenberg earned an 8-5 win and freshman Monika Kolbovic teamed with Svanfeldt to knock off a team from Oregon. The quarterfinal doubles matches for Ahn/Nauenberg, and Kolbovic/Svanfeldt were not completed at time of release. If either pair wins today, Saturday's semifinals will take place at 3:30 p.m.
