Lindsay Burdette Named Pac-10 Player Of The Week
Feb. 9, 2010
STANFORD, Calif.- Senior Lindsay Burdette has been named Pac-10 Player of the Week for Feb. 1-7, as announced by Commissioner Larry Scott.
The honor is the first of Burdette's career and first for a Stanford player since Hilary Barte captured the award last April.
Burdette won both of her singles and doubles matches over the weekend, helping No. 14 Stanford improve to 4-0 following road victories over No. 24 TCU and No. 27 Texas. Burdette defeated two nationally-ranked opponents in singles play at the No. 2 spot, surrendering only nine games combined.
During Stanford's 6-1 win at TCU, Burdette overwhelmed No. 67 Kayla Duncan 6-1, 6-1. One day later in a 5-2 victory at Texas, she defeated No. 27 Krista Damico 6-3, 6-4. Burdette is now 9-4 overall, 5-0 in duals and riding a four-match winning streak.
She also teamed with Hilary Barte in doubles at the No. 1 spot, and the duo handily won both of its matches. Barte and Burdette coasted past TCU's duo of Duncan and Nina Munch-Soegaard 8-2 and had no problem putting away Texas' team of Amanda Craddock and Damico 8-3. Ranked No. 2 in the nation, Barte and Burdette own a 17-1 overall record, are 8-1 against nationally-ranked opponents and possess a 16-match winning streak dating back to their only loss back on Oct. 9.
Stanford kicks off a stretch that includes three straight home matches, beginning with Thursday's contest against No. 59 Sacramento State.
