USC’s Stefan Dostanic Scores Pac-12 Men’s Tennis Player of the Week Honors
USC junior Stefan Dostanic was undefeated in singles and doubles across the Trojans' three dual matches last week, running his singles win streak out to 12 in a row to help secure his second career selection as Pac-12 Men's Tennis Player of the Week.
Paired with partner Bradley Frye at the No. 1 position in doubles, Dostanic collected two decisive wins and one tiebreaker victory for a 3-0 effort in doubles. And on court one in singles, the now-No. 6 ranked player in the nation beat two ranked opponents in straight sets and claimed a three-set comeback victory as well to tally his 30th singles win of the season.
Dostanic is the second Trojan to be named Pac-12 Player of the Week this season, joining freshman Peter Makk's pick on Feb. 22. Dostanic's first such honor came last season.
Dostanic and the No. 15 Trojans wrap up a seven-match home stand with two more Pac-12 clashes this week. On Friday (March 25), USC hosts No. 13 Stanford at 3 p.m. at Marks Stadium. And on Saturday (March 26), the Trojans take on No. 27 California at 1 p.m.
