Cal's Manasse falls in Oracle/ITA Masters semis

   Danielle Collins of Virginia again dashed Cal's hopes on Saturday.
   The fourth-seeded Collins beat top-seeded Maegan Manasse 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-4 to reach the final of the inaugural Oracle/ITA Masters in Malibu, Calif.
   Earlier Saturday in the quarterfinals, Manasse defeated Luisa Stefani of host Pepperdine 7-5, 6-2, and Collins trounced Sinead Lohan of Miami 6-1, 6-0.
   Collins defeated two Cal players, Anett Schutting in the second round and Lynn Chi in the final, at the 2014 NCAA Championships in Athens, Ga. Schutting has completed her eligibility, but Chi is a senior.
   Collins will face Hayley Carter of North Carolina in today's final. Carter beat Giuliana Olmos, a USC senior from Fremont in the San Francisco Bay Area, 6-4, 6-3 in the quarterfinals and Joana Eidukonyte of Clemson 6-2, 6-4 in the semifinals. Olmos ousted second-seeded Stephanie Wagner of Miami in the first round on Friday.
   Olmos will play for the doubles title with fellow Trojan Gabby Smith. They defeated No. 2 seeds Sydney Campbell and Courtney Colton of reigning NCAA champion Vanderbilt 6-2, 6-3.
   Olmos and Smith will meet Mami Adachi and Aldila Sutjiadi of Kentucky. Adachi and Sutjiadi toppled No. 1 seeds Manasse and Denise Starr 7-6 (3), 6-3.
