UCLA's Jason Netter, perhaps college's most aptly named tennis player, defeated Stanford's Alex O'Brien, 6-3, 6-2, to win the Pacific 10 men's singles title Sunday. Netter, a 21-year-old sophomore, was a former player at the Bollettieri Academy in Bradenton, Fla., before his family moved to Beverly Hills. Netter did not play tennis last summer and instead worked as a production assistant with his grandfather, Doug Netter, who owns a film production company in Hollywood.
