Miami's Cohen Named ACC Women's Tennis Player of the Week
March 24, 2009
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Miami sophomore Julia Cohen has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women's Tennis Player of the Week for the second time during the 2009 season.
Cohen won all three singles and doubles matches she participated in last week, stretching her winning streak to 10 matches in singles play, and five in doubles (with partner Bianca Eichkorn).
Cohen improved to 6-0 in ACC play as she took two matches at the top flight against No. 53 Sanaz Marand (North Carolina) and No. 31 Mallory Cecil (Duke) to help the Hurricanes to a 3-0 week. Her biggest triumph of the week was her decisive 6-1, 6-1 defeat of the nation's fourth-ranked player, Aurelija Miseviciute of Arkansas. All three of Cohen's were straight-set victories. For Cohen, it was the fifth time this year she's defeated a Top 25 foe, and the fourth time in the spring she's beaten a Top 10 opponent.
Cohen and Eichkorn were instrumental in helping Miami claim the doubles point in three matches this week, earning a 3-0 record at flight two doubles. Cohen has dropped just two sets in her current 10-match winning streak.
