2/21/2018

UC Davis reaped the rewards of solid play from both teams as freshman Ivan Thamma and sophomore Nikita Pradeep claimed Tennis Athlete of the Week honors.

Thamma Posts 3-0 Record In Singles

Winner of five of six matches across singles and doubles, UC Davis freshman Ivan Thamma (San Diego, Calif./Point Loma HS) earned his first career Big West Men’s Tennis Athlete of the Week honor.

Thamma went 3-0 in singles to help the Aggies finish 2-1 as a team.  He won his match at No. 1 singles against Sonoma State’s Nate Oppenheim, 6-1, 6-4, in a 7-0 Aggie sweep.  Thamma also recorded a 6-3, 6-0 triumph over Nash Vollenweider at No. 2 singles, as the Aggies knocked off the Gaels by a 6-3, 6-0 score.  In a 4-3 loss to Santa Clara, Thamma recorded one of the three Aggie points with his 6-4, 7-5 win against Robert Seby.

Thamma and partner Everett Maltby went 2-1 at No. 1 doubles, defeating their counterparts from Sonoma State and Saint Mary’s.

Others nominated: Luis Lopez (UC Irvine); Nicolas Moreno de Alboran (UC Santa Barbara); Blaz Seric (Hawai‘i)

Pradeep Contributes To Upset Win Over Defending Champion

Sophomore Nikita Pradeep (Sugar Land, Texas/Clements HS) helped UC Davis upset defending regular season champion Hawai‘i to claim Big West Women’s Tennis Athlete of the Week honors.

Pradeep captured her No. 4 singles match against UH’s Klara Pribylova, 6-2, 6-1, to help the Aggies to a 4-2 victory over the Rainbow Wahine.  She also notched a 4-6, 7-5, 10-6 victory over Saint Mary’s foe Clementine Clement in a 5-2 team loss.  Pradeep moved to 8-0 on the year in singles dual contests.

Although her match in singles against San Francisco went unfinished, she aided in the 4-1 victory with a triumph at No. 3 doubles, as she and teammate Sara Tsukumoto won, 6-2, over the Dons combo of Anna Sokiran and Alexa Meyer.

Others nominated: Genevieve Zeidan (Cal State Fullerton); Natalia Munoz (Long Beach State); Stephanie Nguyen (UC Irvine)
