Athens, Ga. ?- Arizona seniors Dianne Hollands and Maja Mlakar, ranked 15th, lost to No. 21 Candice Fuchs and Megan Moulton of William and Mary, 7-6 (4), 6-4, in the round of 16 at the NCAA Doubles Championship on Tuesday at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Ga. 


UA Assistant Coach Brian Ramirez said, “The team from William and Mary was very good, as all the teams are in the tournament.  The match was very close, and really turned on just a few points.  You can’t take anything away from how [Moulton and Fuchs] played because they were very sharp and on top of their game.”


Hollands and Mlakar’s loss brought the season to a close for UA.  As he looks ahead towards the future, Ramirez reflects on what the pair of Wildcats did this year, as well as in the past four years. “Dianne has brought a certain level of integrity and class to the program that it desperately needs.  Her work ethic is wonderful and you have to admire that,” Ramirez said.  “What she and Maja were able to accomplish this year, ascending to the top of the Pac-10, says a ton about what they have accomplished here in Tucson.”


Hollands’ singles season came to an end yesterday when she lost to No. 2 Julie Coin of Clemson, 6-1, 6-1.  Coin has lost just four matches all year, all to opponents ranked in the top seven nationally.  On Monday, Hollands defeated Ashlee Davis of Wake Forest for her 100th career singles victory.
