Pac-12 Announces Tennis Players of the Week

Oregon Athletics/USC Athletics

SAN FRANCISCO - The Conference office announced today that Max de Vroome of USC was named Pac-12 Men's Tennis Player of the Week and OREGON's Alyssa Tobita was voted Women's Tennis Player of the Week for action during the week of March 7 - 13.

de Vroome (Vught, Netherlands) secured the first win of the day in doubles and then clinched the Trojans’ road win in singles, beating host #26 Tulsa in a key nonconference victory last week. De Vroome combined forces with freshman Jake DeVine in doubles and claimed a 6-2 win from court two to help USC to the doubles point. Then No. 32 de Vroome took on Tulsa’s No. 39 Or Ram-Harel on court one, grabbing the first set in a tiebreaker and then staying the course to a 7-6, 6-1 win that clinched the victory for the Trojans. USC improves to 8-3 overall with the road win. It is de Vroome's first-career weekly accolade and the 46th all-time for the Trojans.

Tobita (Mililani, Hawai'i) played a vital role for the Ducks this weekend, picking up two match-clinching singles victories to extend the Ducks’ win streak to eight with wins over Pac-12 foes Washington and Washington State. Tobita tallied a 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 win over 105th-ranked Stacey Fung to push the Ducks past the Huskies on Sunday. Her 6-4, 6-2 win over Barbora Michalkova of Washington State clinched the win over the Cougars Friday. Tobita also picked up a pair of triumphs in doubles with partner Nia Rose. The sophomore has been impressive this spring, racking up an unblemished 10-0 record in dual play competing primarily in the No. 2 and 3 spots. She also has a record of 7-1 in dual doubles matches.
