The most highly-decorated player in the University of Oregon's tennis history, Daria Panova begins her sixth season as an assistant coach at the University of Minnesota in 2012-13.

Panova, the 2003 Pac-10 Conference Player of the Year, compiled a 93-47 singles record and 61-47 doubles mark during her four years at Oregon. Her 93 career singles victories are the most of any player in Oregon history. She was ranked as high as No. 7 nationally during her sophomore and junior years and qualified for the NCAA individual championships for three straight years.

Panova set a single-season school record with 32 victories during both the 2003 and 2004 seasons. She was a two-time All-American and three-time all-Pac-10 Conference selection. Panova helped the Ducks reach the NCAA tournament three straight years and she won Pac-10 individual indoor and outdoor championships in 2003.

A Moscow, Russia native, Panova played with a Polish club team that captured three straight Polish team tournament titles. Following her Oregon playing career, she spent a year as a club pro in East Hampton, N.Y. and coached under-14 players in Moscow.

Panova graduated from Oregon with a double major in Economics and Sociology and a minor in Business Administration. She has completed a graduate degree in Kinesiology and Sports Management from Minnesota's School of Human Development.
