    Nov. 8, 2014

    FLUSHING, N.Y. -- USC seniors Yannick Hanfmann and Roberto Quiroz have put themselves in position to capture the program's first doubles title at the ITA National Indoor Championships since 1992. It will be the seventh time in history that USC has a team in the doubles final. The top-seeded Hanfmann/Quiroz are slated to face Illinois' Guignon/Kopinski in tomorrow's title match at 11:30 a.m. ET at the USTA-Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

    Up against the No. 3 seeds today in the semifinals, top-seeded and #19 ranked Hanfmann/Quiroz gutted out a tiebreak win in the first set to set the table for a strong statement in the second set. The Trojan tandem served up a 7-6, 6-3 win over Vanderbilt's #22 Austin/Johnson. With another straight-set victory under their belts, Hanfmann/Quiroz take their place in tomorrow's championship match. The top seeds will tangle with the #2 ranked pair in the nation in Illinois' Guignon/Kopinski as the Trojans look to become the first USC pair since 1992 to win it all at the ITA National Indoors. USC had doubles finalists in 2007 and 2008 and won championships in 1984, 1987, 1988 and 1992. The 1992 champs were Brian MacPhie and Jon Leach.
