Stanford Sends Three to Pac-10 Semifinals

April 22, 2005

Ojai, Calif. - The Cardinal is guaranteed at least one finalist at the Pac-10 Individual Championships, as three of the four semifinalists in tomorrow's main draw are Stanford players. No. 22 Alice Barnes, No. 49 Theresa Logar and Anne Yelsey each defeated her quarterfinal opponent to advance to third day of competition in Ojai. Stanford's Barnes and Yelsey will also compete in the doubles semifinals.

In the singles main draw, Barnes posted a 6-2, 6-3 victory over 14th-ranked Lindsey Nelson of USC, while Logar picked up a 6-2, 6-2 win over 33rd-ranked Dianne Hollands of Arizona, and Yelsey earned a spot in the fourth round with a 6-1, 2-6, 6-4 victory over USC's 79th-ranked Anca Anastasiu.

Barnes and Yelsey also picked up a pair of wins in doubles action, and the two will compete in the main draw semifinals tomorrow. Freshman Whitney Deason was injured during her doubles match with Logar, and the pair retired when leading Washington's Ahn and Nauenberg, 6-5. Deason then withdrew from her singles match.

Kara Guzman and Joanna Kao dropped an 8-4 decision to Allison Rainey and Stephanie Svanfeldt, to end the Cardinal's run in the Invitational Draw.

In singles, Barnes and Yelsey will face on in one semifinal, which is set to begin at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow morning. Logar will challenge Nicole Leimbach, who advanced after Deason withdrew, in the second semifinal at 11 a.m. In doubles, Barnes and Yelsey will take on Washington duo Dinka Hadzic and Dea Sumantri at 3:30 p.m.
