Sumantri Sweeps Singles and Doubles Titles At Husky Invitational
Nov. 14, 2004
SEATTLE, Wash. -Washington senior Dea Sumantri proved to be truly the top Dawg in women's tennis as she captured the singles title and doubles title with partner Cassy Fabiani on the final day of the Husky Invitational at the Nordstrom Tennis Center. The tournament, which featured several northwest rivals, brings the fall season to a close for Washington.
Members of the Portland, Boise State and Oregon tennis teams joined the Huskies in the tournament, but Washington dominated the upper level competitions. Huskies comprised three of the four semifinal spots in Flight I Singles and two of the four teams in Flight I Doubles.
Sumantri and junior Dinka Hadzic both came through their morning semifinal matches with straight-set wins. Sumantri, a three-time All-American, beat teammate Saskia Nauenberg 6-3, 6-3 while Hadzic defeated Portland's Christin Sammis 6-2, 6-2 to set up a final between Washington's top two singles players and co-captains. The senior topped the junior by a 6-0, 6-4 score to win the event. Sumantri did not go easy on her teammates, defeating a fellow Husky in each of her three wins without dropping a set.
In doubles play, Sumantri finally had a chance to play against someone other than her own teammates. Paired with new freshman teammate Cassy Fabiani, the pair overwhelmed Alyssa Ayling and Nadia Woschek, 8-2 in one semifinal. The other semi saw Oregon's Jamie Marshall and Davina Mendiburu upend Hadzic and her freshman taemmate Allison Rainey by an 8-4 margin. But the Huskies would take the title as Sumantri and Fabiani dominated the Duck duo, 8-1, in the final.
With the fall season wrapped up, the Huskies have two months before hitting the courts for the first time in the new year when Washington plays host to the Pac-10 Indoor Championships at the Nordstrom Tennis Center from Jan. 14-16.
