No. 1 Stanford Takes 1-0 Lead Versus Georgia, Rain Moves Match Indoors

May 20, 2005

Athens, Ga. - Top-seeded Stanford and eighth-seeded Georgia were in the final stages of the doubles point when a downpour halted play on the outdoor courts at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex at the University of Georgia.

On the outdoor courts, Whitney Deason and Theresa Logar gave the Cardinal a 1-0 lead in doubles play with an 8-3 victory over Natalie Frazier and Jitka Schonfeldova on court three before the storm moved in. Amber Liu and Anne Yelsey won their last three games on court one to take a 6-5 lead into the delay, while Alice Barnes and Erin Burdette owned a 7-4 advantage. Once the match began inside, Barnes and Burdette broke Evgenia Subbotina's serve in the final game to win on court two, 8-4.

Singles play will begin on the four indoor courts, with the matches on courts five and six beginning, if necessary, as matches on courts one through four conclude.
