If Swan and Blain fare well today, they

Moon ready to take reins for 'M' women's tennis
By David DenHerder
For the Daily
Sometimes, waiting patiently for something makes it
that much sweeter. For many years, the Michigan
women's tennis program has had fair, respectable, .500
seasons. Then last year, out of nowhere - bang.
Big Ten champions. NCAA regional champions. A
perfect 10-0 conference record. An NCAA tournament
appearance. And all for the first time in school history.
Senior Sarah Cyganiak is Big Ten Player of the Year,
and Bitsy Ritt is Coach of the Year.
But to the victors, unfortunately, goes the pressure.
Losing only one player to graduation, the Wolverines
arc expected to repeat as Big Ten champions again this
year; and they will have to do it without Cyganiak, who
was the only Michigan tennis player ever to reach 100
career singles wins.
"Obviously, Sarah Cyganiak is a huge loss for our
program," Ritt said. "However, we have plenty of young
players who gained a good amount of experience. I real-
ly believe we have the ability to play at a higher level."
Senior Sora Moon may be the one to lead the team to
that next level. Moon was All-Big Ten last year at No. 2
singles and earned Academic All-Big Ten honors. She
also played with Cyganiak at the NCAA Doubles
"That was fun," Moon said. "1 learned a lot from
Sarah, and we had a good time."
As the lone senior on this year's squad, Moon is in a
position to guide the team to its second Big Ten title in
as many years.
"Having come through in the big matches and (hav-
ing) been outstanding in the regional tournament when
it really counts makes (Sora) a favorite to play high in
our lineup," Ritt said.
As for the upcoming season, it is treated with opti-
mism. The team is very deep with talent and still has the
taste of victory in their mouths.
"We definitely have the potential to win it again ... I
think other teams will look to us as the team to beat
because we won last year' Moon said. "Even though
I'm the only senior, we have a lot of experience on the
Another thing the women have to look forward to
this season is their state-of-the-art facility, in which they
have a perfect 7-0 mark thus far. Completed last year,
the new facility will serve as the home venue for all
"If it's not the best, it's one of the best in the nation
- we really don't deserve it," Moon said. "It's like m
Last year was undisputedly the best season the
Wolverines have ever had. Now the program will be put
to the test, to determine whether it was a just a fluke, or
the foundation of things to come. If Ritt or Moon have
anything to say about it, the team has only just begun.
"(Last season) can be a springboard for our program
and that is what we are hoping," Ritt said.
It's now up to Moon to take the reins and lead the
