Women’s Tennis wins their dual with the Dons

Feb. 17, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — The UC Davis women’s tennis team adds a 4-1 match victory to their season wins after meeting on the courts with San Francisco’s team at the Olympic Club center on Saturday afternoon.

The Aggies are now 7-1 overall going into their next dual match.

UC Davis started off the dual with a win by tandem Lani-Rae Green and Kristina Breisacher over San Francisco’s Shanna Dos Santos and Margarita Treyes, 6-4, but the Dons pushed through to score a doubles match win at the No. 1 position. The Aggies went on to break the tie by eventually sealing the doubles point, thanks to the clutch performance by partners Nikita Pradeep and Sara Tsukamoto, who defeated San Francisco’s Anna Sokiran and Alexa Meyer, 6-2.

Breisacher scored the first singles point for the Aggies by getting a straight-set win over Sokiran, 6-4, 6-0, but again the Dons came back with another No. 1 position win to temporarily lessen the gap between the team score.

Unfortunately for the home team, UC Davis prevented San Francisco from scoring any further as they went on to get the next two wins at No. 5 and No 6, which included UC Davis players Tsukamoto and Isabella von Ebbe, respectively. The latter of the two clinched the four-point win for her team after her three-set win over Alexa Meyer, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2, and thus leading the Aggies to a 4-1 win over the Dons.

The UC Davis women’s tennis team returns to action on Sunday as they welcome Saint Mary’s team at noon to the Marya Welch Tennis Center.
