Stanford will be well-represented on Monday morning when semifinal competition gets underway at the USTA/ITA Northwest Regional Championships.

The Cardinal has enjoyed a successful weekend competing on its home court at Taube Family Tennis Center, which is serving as the event's host site for the ninth consecutive season.

Stanford's Taylor Davidson and Caroline Doyle are both alive on opposite ends of the bracket, making an all-Stanford singles final a possibility.

Davidson eliminated Karla Popovic of Cal, 6-4, 6-4, and Doyle bounced Andrea Ka of USF, 3-6, 7-5, 6-2. In the semifinals, Davidson will face Tami Grende of Washington while Doyle will take on Mayar Ahmed of Fresno State.

In doubles, Davidson and Doyle have reached the semifinals together while senior Krista Hardebeck and freshman Caroline Lampl remain in contention, as well.

Monday's singles matches are set for 10 a.m., with doubles to follow at 11:30 a.m.

Men's tennis

Stanford's David Wilczynski ripped past the competition Sunday to advance to the final of the Singles Main Draw of the USTA/ITA Regional Championship, where he will face Oregon's Daan Maasland Monday morning for the title.

The Cardinal also sent a doubles team to the finals as Nolan Paige and Maciek Romanowicz posted back-to-back wins Sunday to enter into Monday's Regional Championship.

The finals for singles play will commence at 10 a.m. Monday with the conclusion of the doubles championship following after at the University of Washington.
