STANFORD, Calif.- Championship Tuesday at the USTA/ITA Northwest Regional Championships will have a definite Stanford feel, with Kristie Ahn attempting to claim titles in both singles and doubles.
Ahn, who won the same event as a freshman in 2010, is seeking her third career singles crown after Monday’s 6-0, 6-1 semifinal victory over top-seeded Zsofia Susanyi of California. Ahn has looked sharp throughout the tournament, winning all her matches in straight sets.
Ahn’s opponent in the 12:30 p.m. championship match will be Jenny Jullien of Saint Mary’s. Jullien defeated Cardinal freshman Caroline Doyle 7-6 (5), 6-2 in the other semifinal. Doyle’s tournament run had been even more impressive, surrendering no more than four games in a set prior to Monday.
Tuesday’s 10:30 a.m. doubles final will be an all-Stanford affair, with Taylor Davidson and Ellen Tsay squaring off against Ahn and Carol Zhao.
