Chan, Dy Featured Together In NW Asian Weekly
The Northwest Asian Weekly came out to watch UW's top two women's tennis standouts take on California on Senior Day a week and a half ago. Venise Chan, ranked 16th in the nation and a native of Hong Kong, China, played right next to Denise Dy, the No. 9 ranked singles player who grew up in the Philippines though she currently makes her home in San Jose, California.
The story chronicles their starts in the game of tennis and how they wound up competing for Jill Hultquist and the Huskies. It also looks at their contrasting personalities and styles of game.
The match in question was a tough one for both Chan and Dy, as they each fell in lengthy third sets against two more Top-20 players from Cal, but in this case the feature also provides some insight on how they respond to defeats. Both women would follow up with wins over ranked players at Washington State to close the regular season.
