Bruin Tennis Players Looking for Titles in Ojai

April 30, 2011

Ojai, Calif. - The UCLA men's and women's tennis teams will have a pair of chances to claim titles at the Pac-10 Championships on Sunday, as Bruin players have advanced to two Invitational finals.

Bruin sophomore Warren Hardie will face Stanford's Walker Kehrer in the men's Invitational singles final on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. Hardie earned a spot in the final after downing Washington's Max Manthou, 6-3, 6-2 in the semifinals on Saturday.

Hardie's teammate, freshman Adrien Puget, wasn't as fortunate in his semifinal encounter on Saturday, falling to USC's Steve Johnson, 6-2, 6-2 in the main draw.

On the women's side, Courtney Dolehide and Nina Pantic booked a spot in the Invitational doubles final with an 8-1 victory over Cal's Stephany Chang and Catie Visico. Next up is a meeting with Stanford's Mallory Burdette and Natalie Dillon on Sunday at 12:30 p.m.

Also in Ojai
Both of Sunday's Men's Open finals will feature players with UCLA ties. UCLA signee Marcos Giron won his 22nd-straight match on Saturday when he downed Tim Kpulun, 6-4, 6-3 in the semifinals. He will attempt to win his fourth-straight tournament when he meets former Bruin Aaron Yovan at 12:30 p.m. UCLA assistant coach Kris Kwinta and partner Boris Bakalov have advanced to the doubles final and will meet Nima Roshan and Alessandro Ventre at 3:30 p.m.
