Stanford's Klahn wins Pac-10 tennis honors for men

 

Stanford junior Bradley Klahn is off to a good start on his way to defending his NCAA singles title. On Monday, Klahn was named the Pac-10 Men's Tennis Player of the Week.

Klahn took home singles and doubles titles on Jan. 17 at the Sherwood Cup, completing an impressive tournament weekend heading into dual- match season. He defeated USC's Steve Johnson, 6-2, 6-4, in the championship match, winning the Sherwood Cup singles title for the second straight season.

It was the fifth career singles championship for Klahn, who also won the ITA Northwest Regional Championship before taking the NCAA crown. In 2009, Klahn won the singles title at the Pac-10 Championships.

In doubles play, Klahn teamed with Ryan Thacher to outlast Baylor's Roberto Maytin and John Peers, 8-6. This win marked the fifth doubles championship for the pair of Klahn and Thatcher.

This is Klahn's fourth career Pac-10 Player of the Week honor.

Stanford opens its dual season on Tuesday, hosting Sacramento State at 1:30 p.m.
