Pecotic, Muliawan Advance to USTA/ITA Regional Singles Finals
Princeton will have a presence in both the men's and women's USTA/ITA Regional singles finals when those matches are played Tuesday.
Amanda Muliawan defeated Brown's Hannah Camhi 6-2, 6-2 in the quarterfinals and Vanessa Petrini of Rutgers 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 in the semis to set up a finals match against Columbia's Kanika Vaidya Tuesday at 11 a.m. at the Army-hosted regional.
Pecotic defeated Xander Centenari of Dartmouth 6-3, 6-1 in the quarters and John Huang of Yale 6-7, 6-1, 6-3 in the semis, putting him in a final against Winston Lin of Columbia at the Yale-hosted event at 9 a.m. The two have met twice already this season, in the final of the top Farnsworth/Princeton Invitational draw and in the semifinal of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center Men's Collegiate Invitational, and Pecotic won both times.
Princeton also had two doubles teams who saw their runs end Monday. Muliawan and Lindsay Graff fell in the semifinal to Sol Eskenazi and Sonya Latycheva of Penn 8-2, while Pecotic and Zack McCourt lost to Yale's Daniel Hoffman and Marc Powers 8-4.
