April 24, 2004

Complete Results

OJAI, Calif. - The USC men's and women's tennis teams will be well-represented in the Pac-10 Tournament and Invitational finals on Sunday, April 25. The Trojans' Adriano Biasella will compete for the prestigious main draw singles championship, while women's tennis seniors Bernadette Bayani and Melissa Esmero will defend their title in the Invitational Doubles Championship.

This will mark Biasella's second trip to the finals at Ojai, the site of the Pac-10 Individual Championships, as well as many other junior and college level events during the same week. In 2002, Biasella captured the Men's Community College Singles Championship at Ojai as a player at College of the Desert.

Sunday will also mark a repeat visit to the finals for Bayani and Esmero, who defeated the Arizona duo of Dianne Hollands and Kelly Perry last season for the title. Esmero will actually be making her third championship outing. In 2001 she won the Pac-10 Invitational Singles Championship.

Biasella outlasted Washington's Alex Vlaski in a thrilling three-set match decided in the breaker, 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(2), in Saturday's semifinal. He will face Stanford's Sam Warburg on Sunday.

Bayani and Esmero defeated Mugette Ahn and Saskia Nauenberg of Washington, 8-2, in the semis. The pair will face Stanford's Theresa Logar and Story Tweedie-Yates in tomorrow's final.

Following are USC's complete results.
