Top-Ranked Stanford Too Strong For Aggies In 7-0 Victory

Jan. 27, 2005

STANFORD, Calif. - UC Davis played its second consecutive nationally-ranked team and came away on the short end of a 7-0 loss at top-ranked Stanford Thursday afternoon at the Taube Tennis Stadium.

The loss dropped UC Davis to 0-2 while it marked the season-opener for Stanford.

Stanford opened the day by sweeping all three doubles matches. Both of Stanford's ranked doubles partners won handily, as No.7 Alice Barnes and Erin Burdette defeated Ally Muller and Robin Guier, 8-0, at No.1. No.41 Whitney Deason and Lejla Hodzic took down Audrey Wingo and Kaitlin Callan, 8-2, at No.2 while Theresa Logar and Anne Yelsey won 8-0 over Ashley Lehman and Amanda Wise at No.3.

In singles play, Stanford featured five ranked singles players and won all six of their singles matches in straight sets. Burdette defeated Muller, 6-2, 6-1 at the top spot while Barnes posted a 6-2, 6-0 win at No.2. Logar surrendered three games in defeating Wingo, 6-2, 6-1, at No.3 with Deason defeating Callan, 6-0, 6-2 at No.4 and Yelsey blanking Yuka Otaka, 6-0, 6-0, at No.5. Hodzic also earned a 6-0, 6-0 win at No.6, defeating Wise.

"The team really enjoyed the match and to play at facility like that was really something," said Aggie head coach Bill Maze. "Stanford gave us the utmost respect by playing their full lineup and I think they are the best team in the country.



"The purpose of the match was not to necessarily come away with the winning score, but just the overall experience. We're now looking forward to the rest of the schedule because no team we will face is going to be as good as Stanford."

UC Davis is next in action on Feb.4 when it opens the home schedule against Montana State at the Marya Welch Tennis Center.
