Stanford players set for ITA Championships


Stanford sophomore Nicole Gibbs will meet Duke's Beatrice Capra in the first round of the main draw Thursday at the ITA Riviera All-American women's tennis championships in Pacific Palisades.

Gibbs, seeded seventh for the tournament, will be joined by Cardinal teammates Stacey Tan and Mallory Burdette, who will each play a qualifier.

California's Jana Juricova, who beat Tan for the NCAA singles title in May, is the top seed, followed by Florida's Allie Will.

Burdette and Gibbs will also play doubles, meeting a team from Baylor in the first round. Burdette and Hilary Barte, now on the pro circuit, won the NCAA doubles title.

On the men's side, Stanford's Ryan Thacher plays UCLA's Clay Thompson in Thursday's first round action of the All-American championships in Tulsa.

Ohio State's Blaz Rola is the top seed, followed by Kentucky's Eric Quigley and Duke's Henrique Cunha.

Matt Kandath lost his qualifying singles match to Oklahoma's Peerakit Siributwong, 7-6, 7-5. Kandath and teammate Denis Lin lost, 9-7, in doubles qualifying to a team from George Washington.

Lin went 1-1 in the qualifying tournament while John Morrissey lost his first round match.
