Stanford's Warburg Nets Back-to-Back Singles Championships; USC's Leimbach Earns One for the Women of Troy

April 24, 2005

OJAI, Calif. -- Stanford's second-ranked Sam Warburg held on to defeat Washington's Alex Vlaski, 7-5, 7-5 this afternoon in the finals of the Pac-10 Individual Championships at The Ojai, defending his 2004 title.

The only other time an individual has won back-to-back men's singles titles was in 1991 and 1992, when Alex O'Brien of Stanford staged a repeat performance.

USC notched its first Conference individual title on the women's side with a 5-7, 6-0, 6-3 win by Nicole Leimbach over Stanford's Alice Barnes. Barnes, who also competed in the doubles finals with teammate Anne Yelsey won easily over Arizona duo Dianne Hollands and Maja Mlakar, 8-1. The Cardinal also notched the doubles championship last year.

The men's doubles finals featured another Stanford-Washington matchup, as Warburg, with an hour rest from his singles match, teamed up with KC Corkery and defeated Husky duo Daniel Chu and Alex Slovic, 8-6.

In the men's invitational draw, California's Ken Nakahara defeated teammate Dean Wallace in straight sets, 6-4, 6-1 in the finals to earn his first Ojai title as a freshman.

The Women of Troy were also victorious in the invitational singles finals, as Carine Vermeulen defeated Washington State's Amy Toth in straight sets, 7-5, 6-3.

Oregon tandem Ester Bak and Davina Mendiburu were named the 2005 invitational doubles winners with a 9-8(6) win over UCLA's Tracy Lin and Elizabeth Lumpkin. USC's Jeff Kazarian and Kaes Van't Hof earned their invitational doubles win with an equally tough 9-8(3) win over Cal's Lennart Maack and Dean Wallace.

The Pac-10 men's and women's tennis teams will next take to the courts for the NCAA First and Second Rounds May 13-15 at campus sites yet to be determined. The men's championship finals will be in College Station, Texas, while the women's championship finals will be held in Athens, Ga.
