In today's action, Manji and Nommensen pulled through with two more impressive wins. In the day's opening contest, the duo defeated Kaur and Beckman of BYU, 8-6 in the quarterfinals. Manji and Nommensen then came back with their experience and poise versus the Golden Bears tandem, Jasie Dunk and Maria Smith. Trailing 7-6, Manji and Nommensen came back with great serves and net play to clinch the tie-break and 8-7 victory. Kozyreva and Ville dominated in today's quarterfinal and semifinal matches, as the duo lost just six games combined in the two matches.
