In case you have not watched college tennis before, the meet starts with simultaneous play of 3 doubles matches, first to win at least 8 games and by 2. The team who wins two doubles matches first win ONE point. Then the six singles matches happen (more or less simultaneous) - best of 3 sets, with the winning team of each singles match awarded one point. First team to 4 point wins the meet.
The Bears and Furd met earlier this year in a non-conference meet on March 2:
The Bears - playing without sophomore star Zsofi Susanyi - fell, 6-1. Junior Alice Duranteau - who beat Lindsey Kostas, 7-6(6), 6-2, on court six in singles - earned Cal's point. The pair of Davis and Goransson defeated Natalie Dillon and Krista Hardebeck to open doubles play, 8-1, on court three, but Stanford won the final two matches to take the doubles point.
The junior from France, Alice Duranteau, coincidentally was the subject of a nice Daily Cal profile on her ambition to become a doctor. My favorite quote is
1. No. 23 Chi/Schutting (Cal)
2. No. 29 Susanyi/Fabikova (Cal)
3. Davis/Duranteau (Cal)
