Singles Finals at The Ojai Showcase Players from California, Stanford and USC

April 24, 2004

OJAI, Calif. -- Stanford junior Sam Warburg and USC senior Adriano Biaselia defeated their opponents Saturday afternoon in the semifinals of the 2004 Pac-10 Individual Championships at The Ojai to advance to the singles finals and set up a Cardinal-Trojan matchup.

In the first match of the day, Warburg went head-to-head with UCLA junior Chris Lam and defeated the Bruin in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. Biaselia faced his toughest competition yet, taking Alex Vlaski of Washington to three sets, 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(2). Vlaski had advanced to the singles finals the previous two years.

The Cardinal has notched eight Pac-10 men's singles champions since 1987, the last being Geoff Abrams in 2000, while USC has garnered three itself, 2001's Ryan Moore the last honored Trojan.

On the women's side, Cal's Raquel Kops-Jones took care of Arizona's Dianne Hollands in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. Kops-Jones advanced to the finals last year as well, losing to Oregon's Daria Panova, 7-6(6), 6-2. Stanford sophomore Alice Barnes retired USC freshman Anca Anastasiu in semifinal action, 6-1, 6-4.

The Golden Bears have never produced a singles champion, while Stanford has nine crowns under its belt, 2002's Gabriela Lastra being the most recent.

Kops-Jones and Barnes are dual threats as both will be involved in the doubles championship tomorrow afternoon, as well. Kops-Jones teamed up with Jieun Jacobs to easily defeat Stanford tandem Emilia Anderson and Anne Yelsey, 8-1, while Barnes and fellow Cardinal Erin Burdette defeated Arizona duo Dianne Hollands and Maja Mlakar, 8-5.

Finals matches at Libbey Park begin at 9:30 a.m. Sunday morning, followed by the conclusion of doubles play in the afternoon.
