Pac-12 announces tennis players of the week
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - OREGON senior Robin Cambier and STANFORD senior Kristie Ahn were voted Pac-12 men’s and women’s tennis Players of the Week for play from Jan. 14-20, the Conference office announced today.
Cambier posted a perfect weekend in opening dual play, capping the week by defeating nationally-ranked Tobias Glaskov (No. 79) in three sets to lead Oregon past UC Santa Barbara, 6-1. The senior from Brussels, Belgium, previously won two singles matches handily in straight sets against Portland State and Eastern Washington. Cambier has now posted 79 career singles wins, just five shy of tying the program record. In doubles, he went 1-0 with Kevin Farin, picking up a win against Eastern Washington.
Ahn pulled off a tournament double on Sunday afternoon, picking up both the singles and doubles championships at the NCTC Classic in Indian Wells, Calif. Ahn collected her fourth career singles crown and second this year, having already won the USTA/ITA Northwest Regional Championships back in October. The senior from Upper Saddle River, N.J., outlasted two ranked opponents, including No. 9 Chanelle van Nguyen of UCLA in the championship match, to earn the singles title. In doubles, Ahn teamed with freshman Carol Zhao on a 6-0 victory over Wake Forest’s Samantha Asch and Luisa Fernandez to claim the crown.
Oregon men’s tennis hits the road this week, facing Duke on Saturday, Jan. 25 before taking on either North Carolina or San Diego State on Sunday, Jan. 26. Stanford women’s tennis continues dual action by hosting UC Davis on Friday, Jan. 24 starting at 3 p.m. PT.
