STANFORD, Calif. – After a 16-day break for final exams, No. 10 Stanford resumes competition this week, as the Cardinal hosts San Francisco on Wednesday, UCLA on Friday and USC on Saturday at Taube Family Tennis Stadium.

The Varsity Lot will be open to the public beginning at noon on Wednesday prior to the match against San Francisco. The lot will be open all day on Friday and Saturday for the UCLA and USC matches. The men's and women's track and field teams will host the Stanford Invitational at Cobb Track & Angell Field adjacent to Taube Family Tennis Stadium on Friday and Saturday. Spectators for that event will also utilize the Varsity Lot on Friday and Saturday.
A limited number of Stanford beanies will be given away to Stanford students (valid student ID required) on a first come, first serve basis at Saturday's match against USC.
Stanford enters the matches ranked No. 10. The Cardinal has been ranked in the top-10 all season. USC is ranked No. 12 and UCLA is ranked No. 19 in the latest Oracle/ITA national poll, released on Tuesday.
Four members of the Cardinal are ranked in the latest ITA singles poll. Axel Geller is No. 8, Alexandre Rotsaert is No. 33, William Genesen is No. 60 and Sameer Kumar is No. 61. Geller and Rotsaert are ranked No. 43 in the latest doubles poll.
UCLA has four individuals – Govind Nanda (No. 35), Keegan Smith (No. 80), Maxime Cressy (No. 92) and Mathew Tsolakyan (No. 100) – and one doubles team – Maxime Cressy/Keegan Smith (No. 36) – ranked in the latest singles and doubles polls.
USC has six individuals – Daniel Cukierman (No. 10), Brandon Holt (No. 17), Laurens Verboven (No. 28), Tanner Smith (No. 53), Logan Smith (No. 71), Bradley Frye (No. 83) – and one doubles team – Brandon Holt/Riley Smith (No. 16) – ranked in the latest singles and doubles polls.
Stanford has won its last six matches, including four shutouts during the span. The Cardinal has not lost since Feb. 15, a 4-2 defeat to Virginia in the ITA National Indoor Championships. Stanford's only two defeats this season are to teams currently ranked in the top-five in the latest ITA poll (No. 1 Ohio State, No. 5 Virginia).
Stanford owns a 19-0 regular-season record at Taube Family Tennis Stadium over the past two seasons. The Cardinal is 8-0 at home this season, after finishing 11-0 at home during the regular season last year, its first undefeated regular-season since 2006.
The weekend matches are part of the annual Dick Gould Stanford/SoCal Challenge. Stanford faces USC and UCLA twice each year, once as part of the Pac-12 schedule and once as part of its nonconference slate. Beginning with last season's matchups, the matches against the Trojans and Bruins at Stanford were named the Dick Gould Stanford/SoCal Challenge in honor of Stanford's Hall of Fame coach, Dick Gould. The legendary Cardinal mentor was enshrined into the Pac-12 Hall of Honor earlier this month in Las Vegas.
