Stanford's Theresa Logar Named Pac-10 Women's Tennis Player of the Week
Feb. 5, 2007
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - STANFORD senior Theresa Logar has been named the Pac-10 Women's Tennis Player of the Week for Jan. 29-Feb. 4, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Despite having its NCAA record 89-match win streak finally snapped on Saturday by Georgia Tech in the semifinals of the ITA National Team Indoors in Madison, Wisc., top-ranked Stanford still posted wins over 17th-ranked Vanderbilt and 11th-ranked California and Logar was dominant all weekend long for the Cardinal, going 3-0 at No. 1 singles without dropping a set.
Logar, a native of Rochester Hills, Mich., soundly defeated Vanderbilt's 57th-ranked Taka Bertrand, 6-3, 6-1 in Thursday's first round in Madison and the Cardinal cruised to a 6-1 victory. Friday, Logar upset third-ranked and defending NCAA Champion Susie Babos of Cal, 6-4, 6-2 as Stanford again chalked up a 6-1 win.
In Saturday's streak-snapping 4-3 loss to the sixth-ranked Yellow Jackets, Logar remained on course, crushing 15th-ranked Kristi Miller, 6-0, 6-2. Logar, currently ranked 89th but a staple of the top-20 in previous years, is now 5-2 against nationally-ranked opponents this season.
The Cardinal (3-1) return to the court February 8 to face Sacramento State at Stanford.
This is the first career Player of the Week award for Logar and the second all-time for Stanford.
ALSO NOMINATED: Rebecca Rankin, Sr., ASU; Susie Babos, Jr., and Zsuzsanna Fodor, Sr., CAL (doubles); Carmen Seremeta, So. ORE; Judy DeVera, Sr., USC; Joyce Ardies, Fr., WASH.
