Emory University sophomore Gabrielle Clark won both the singles and doubles draws of the 2011 USTA/ITA Fall South Regional Championships in Atlanta, GA last weekend. Clark, the top-seeded singles player, dropped just 14 games over her six match victories during the tournament, including a 6-3, 6-2 win over teammate Malavika Padmanabhan in the championship match. Also entering doubles play as the top seed with senior Zahra Dawson, the duo won all five of their matches in the draw (dropping just eight games), including an 8-3 victory over third-seeded teammates Jordan Wylie and Brenna Kelly in the championship match. By virtue of winning the regional titles, Clark will earn all-America honors for the second-straight season, and advance to the USTA/ITA Small College Nationals in Mobile, AL.
