    Ryan Thacher Named Pac-10 Player Of The Week
    Sophomore Ryan Thacher has been named Pac-10 Player of the Week for Apr. 12-18, as announced by Commissioner Larry Scott.


    April 20, 2010



    STANFORD, Calif.- Sophomore Ryan Thacher has been named Pac-10 Player of the Week for Apr. 12-18, as announced by Commissioner Larry Scott.

    The honor is the first of Thacher's career and second of the season for Stanford, as Bradley Klahn captured his fourth career honor back on Feb. 2.

    Thacher led the No. 7 Cardinal (18-5, 5-1 Pac-10) to sweeps over Santa Clara and San Francisco, and a 6-1 victory over rival No. 13 California to clinch a share of the Pac-10 title. It's the first time Stanford has claimed the league hardware since being crowned co-champions with UCLA in 2006.

    Playing in the No. 2 singles position for the matches against Santa Clara and California, Thacher defeated the Broncos' Kyle Dandan, 2-6, 7-6(3), 1-0, and the Golden Bears' No. 95 Christoffer Konigsfeldt, 6-2, 6-3. In his match against the Dons at the No. 1 singles position, Thacher beat Thai Tu in straight sets 6-4, 6-3.

    Thacher has won five singles matches in a row and is 22-7 on the year and 18-4 in duals.

    In doubles play, he teamed with Klahn for a pair of victories as the duo is now 33-6 overall and 15-3 in duals, good enough for a No. 2 national ranking.

    CONGRATULATIONS TO BRADLEY KLAHN AND RYAN THACHER IN GETTING TO THE SEMIS. I SMELL AN ALL STANFORD FINAL COMING UP.


    .- Bradley Klahn, Ryan Thacher and Hilary Barte have worked their way into the semifinals, highlighting Friday's competition for Stanford at the Pac-10 Championships.

    Klahn defeated USC's Peter Lucassen 6-3, 6-2 and will face USC's Daniel Nguyen tomorrow in the semifinals. On the opposite side of the bracket, Thacher bested UCLA's Nick Meister 6-3, 6-4 and will now square off against top-seeded Robert Farah on Saturday.

    Great news for Stanford players, 3 players in the semis (2 on the men's side and 1 in women). Thatcher has a great run and I hope he makes the final, but I think that Klahn has the edge here...

    HOT off the press:

    OJAI, Calif.- Stanford wrapped up competition at the Pac-10 Championships on Sunday afternoon, highlighted by a doubles crown in the tournament's Invitational division.

    The duo of Greg Hirshman and Walker Kehrer captured the title with an 8-4 victory over Washington's Tobi Obenaus and Alex Rosinski. Hirshman and Kehrer entered the weekend with a 1-1 record, playing together in two dual matches. After an opening-round bye, the duo won three matches to claim the Invitational title.

    I am just going by the record from last few years. Player that won Pac-10 in april hasn't faired so well in NCAA championships. Klahn lost in the 1st round and Matt Bruch lost early in couple of years..

    Your team...is so terrible.
    We (USC) got a routine singles sweep, with a doubles title to top it off.
    It was a nice weekend :)

    Being No.7 in the nation is not terrible by any means. Do you play for USC? If not don't say "we".

    USC won NCAAs so technically they still have bragging rights to the best team.
