April 13, 2010

GREENSBORO, N.C.– North Carolina senior Katrina Tsang has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Tennis Player of the Week. Tsang won three pivotal matches at No. 2 singles to help the No. 2 Tar Heels defeat three fellow Top 20 ACC teams on the road and remain unbeaten in conference play heading into the final week of the regular season.

The 51st-ranked Tsang tallied from a set down to beat No. 62 Elizabeth Plotkin of Duke, 2-6, 6-2, 6-2, to help the Tar Heels to a 4-3 win last Wednesday that broke the seventh-ranked Blue Devils’ 29-match homecourt winning streak. The Raleigh, N.C., native then came back from down a set and 4-0 to beat No. 53 Keri Wong of Clemson, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2. Tsang’s victory again proved crucial as UNC scored a 4-3 win over the ninth-ranked Tigers.

Tsang wrapped up her week with a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Viet Ha Ngo to help the Tar Heels to their first win over Georgia Tech since 2006.

North Carolina(21-3 overall, 9-0 ACC) is tied with Miamiatop the ACC standings. The Hurricanes and Tar Heels are scheduled to meet Saturday morning in the Chapel Hill, N.C., in the next-to-last match of the regular season for both teams. The ACC Championship is set April 22-25 at Cary (N.C.) Tennis Park.
