BERKELEY – While California women’s tennis doesn’t officially open the season until next month, a few of the Golden Bears have kept busy on the courts this summer.  The duo of Cal sophomore Maegan Manasse and alumna Anett Schutting won the doubles title at the Heritage Bank of Commerce Open Tennis Championships on Aug. 10 in Moraga, Calif.

The third-seeded Bears upset top-seeded Yasmin Schnack and Katsiaryna Zheltova, 6-4, 7-6(4), at the Moraga Country Club.

Schutting also reached the tournament’s singles final, with the third-seeded Bear falling to top-seeded Jacqueline Cako, 3-6, 7-6(5), 6-1. Schutting – who completed her Cal career last spring – defeated Manasse, 7-6(4), 2-6, 6-3, in the semifinals.

Manasse partnered with Cal men’s tennis associate head coach Tyler Browne in mixed doubles in Moraga. The third-seeded Bears forged their way into the semifinals before losing to the top-seeded pair of Schnack and Haythem Abid, 7-6(3), 6-4.

The busy Schutting moved on to play in the tournament at the Marin Tennis Club in San Rafael, Calif. She and Oren Montevassel fell in the Aug. 16 mixed doubles final to Alex Poorta and Joel Kusnierz, 1-6, 7-5, 6-3. Schutting also reached the singles quarterfinals on Aug. 14 but had to withdraw due to injury.

Former Bear Cristina Visico, now an assistant coach at San Francisco reached the singles final in San Rafael, falling to Alex Poorta, 6-3, 6-3. In mixed doubles, Visico and Andrew Kells earned the third seed but fell to Andre Gu and Sarah Hu, 6-3, 6-4, in the round of 16.
