April 4, 2012
SAN DIEGO - San Diego State women's tennis junior Julia Wais has been named Mountain West Women's Tennis Co-Player of the Week, the league announced late Wednesday. Wais shares her third career honor with UNLV's Lucia Batta.
Wais, a product of Goeppingen, Germany, went 4-0 last week while competing at the top of the singles and doubles lineup for the Aztecs. Against No. 45 TCU, the junior paired with Alicia Aguilar to post a doubles victory over Kelsey Sundaram and Federica Denti, 9-7, at the No. 2 position. Later, Wais followed her winning performance with a singles win, downing the Horned Frogs' 67th-ranked Stefanie Tan in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4, at the top of the singles lineup.
The next day against New Mexico, Wais duplicated her effort as she and Aguilar notched an 8-3 win over Michaela Oldani and Kristin Eggleston at the No. 2 position. Then in singles, Wais picked up a 7-6, 7-5 victory at the No. 1 position over Michaela Bezdickova.
The junior is 4-0 in singles vs. Mountain West foes and has won seven straight singles matches at No. 1. In doubles, Wais and Aguilar have won two consecutive matches.
Wais and the Aztecs return to action on Saturday when they face Boise State at Air Force. First serve is scheduled for 10 a.m. MT.
