OJAI, Calif. - Cal senior Raquel Kops-Jones is enjoying her last trip to the Pac-10 individual championships. On Friday, the nation's No. 3-ranked player slammed her way to a third-straight decisive singles victory, beating Stanford's Erin Burdette, 6-3, 6-3, to advance to the singles semifinals at the 2004 Pac-10 Championships in Ojai, Calif.

Kops-Jones next plays Arizona's No. 14-ranked Dianne Hollands at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday with a trip to the finals at stake. Last year at this event, Kops-Jones advanced all the way to the singles finals before losing the championship to Oregon's Daria Panova, 7-6 (6), 6-2.

In doubles action, Cal's No. 13-ranked double team of Kops-Jones and Jieun Jacobs advanced to the semifinals with an 8-2 first-round victory over Oregon's Dominika Dieskova and Anna Leksinska and an 8-3 second-round victory over Arizona State's Lauren Colalillo and Kady Pooler. Kops-Jones and Jacobs take the court vs. Stanford's Emilia Anderson and Anne Yelsey on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. The winner advances to the doubles final. Last year, Kops-Jones and former Golden Bear Christina Fusano won the Pac-10 doubles championship as a prelude to winning the NCAA doubles title.
