WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -
No. 22-ranked California women's tennis senior Bojana Bobusic was named Pac-10 Women's Tennis Player of the Week for the week of March 16-22, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today. She becomes the third Golden Bear to receive conference honors this season following sophomore Mari Andersson (Feb. 23) and freshman Jana Juricova (Mar. 16). It is Bobusic's first weekly award and the ninth overall for the Cal women's team. Men's tennis sophomore Pedro Zerbini also received player-of-the-week honors today.
Bobusic maintained a perfect record in all four of her matches last week as she helped the Golden Bears to a 5-2 win over No. 42 Denver and a narrow 4-3 loss to No. 18-ranked Fresno State. Bobusic ran her singles record to 27-7 overall with a 12-1 mark in dual matches as she first defeated Denver's Ute Schnoy at No. 3 singles, 6-2, 6-2. She then took out Fresno State's Tinesta Rowe at No. 4 singles, 7-6(4), 4-6, 7-5 for her eighth straight singles victory.
In doubles play, she teamed up with freshman Jana Juricova for just their fifth and sixth matches together (first since the fall) and got two big victories to help Cal win the doubles point for the 10th time this year. The duo claimed an 8-2 win over Julia Bauregger and Mallory Voelker of Denver on the top court in their first match. Then in their second match, they fought out an 8-5 win over top-ranked Renata Kucerkova and Anastasia Petukhova of Fresno State.
The Bears return to Pac-10 competition this week as they head to Los Angeles to face USC on Friday, March 27 at 1:30 p.m. at the David X.
