Sumantri Falls In Quarters At ITA National Indoor Championships

Nov. 5, 2004

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Three-time All-American Dea Sumantri won her morning Round of 16 match at the ITA National Indoor Championships but ran out of gas in the quarterfinals later in the day, bowing out of the prestigious tournament after a strong showing. The ITA National Indoor Championships are the second of three national tournaments in the college tennis season.

The Husky senior began her day facing an impressive freshman, Riza Zalameda of UCLA. Down a set and headed into a tiebreak, Sumantri routed the Bruin 7-0 in the tiebreaker to force a third set. The match was even at five games apiece in the third set before Sumantri's experience prevailed as she captured the final two games.

Sumantri's quarterfinal opponent, No. 4 seed Julie Coin of Clemson, had a much easier straight-set win in the Round of 16. With more time to rest and having played less tennis, Coin handled Sumantri by a 6-1, 6-2 score.

Washington wraps up its fall season next weekend on the home courts at Nordstrom Tennis Center where they will host the Husky Invitational, Nov. 13-15.
