LA JOLLA, Calif. - Tara Siddiqui captured a third set super tiebreaker that was the clinching victory as UC San Diego posted a 5-4 win over UC Davis in a women's tennis match Sunday afternoon at the Northview Tennis Courts.
With the loss the Aggies fall to 1-4 on the season.
Due to rain delays early in the match and to travel plans for the Aggies, the match came down to the No. 4 singles match where the Aggies' Kaitlin Callan and the Siddiqui went to a third set super tiebreaker that was won by the Siddiqui, 10-2, for the match victory.
Using the Division II format where all nine matches are worth one team point, the Tritons jumped out to a 2-1 lead after doubles play. At No.1 UC Davis' pair of Ally Muller and Robin Guier picked up an 8-4 win over Siddiqui and Marsha Malinow while Jasmin Dao and Marissa Hilker teamed up for an 8-3 victory over UC Davis' Ashley Lehman and Audrey Wingo at No.3. Kristen Bronowicki and Katie McKee then gave UC San Diego the advantage with an 8-5 win over Amanda Wise and Laura Tidik at No.2.
In singles play, the Aggies dominated at the top of the lineup as UC Davis captured straight-set wins at the first three spots. Muller defeated Dao 6-4, 6-1 at No.1 and Guier had little trouble with Malinow, 6-3, 6-1 at No.2. Wingo gave the Aggies' their final win with a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Hilker at No.3.
Leigh Roberts earned the third point for UC San Diego with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Yuka Otaka at No.5 while Bronowicki captured a close first set before pulling away for the 7-5, 6-2 win over Wise at No.6. That set up the clinching match at No.4 where Siddiqui dropped the first set before rallying for the 3-6, 6-3, 10-2 win over Callan.
UC Davis is next in action on Friday against Long Beach State at the Marya Welch Tennis Center. Matchtime is set for 1:30 p.m.
