Juricova reached the quarterfinals at the Riviera/ITA All-American and USTA/ITA National Indoors, and the semifinals at the USTA/ITA Northwest Regionals, losing at each stage to another Top 10 player. Meanwhile, Cal freshman Zsofi Susanyi earned a national ranking of No. 21 after defeating four other ranked players to win a fall tournament in Tempe, Ariz.
