UC Davis drops narrow decision at Nevada

March 10, 2017

RENO, Nev. - Do not let UC Davis’ 5-2 loss deceive you, the Aggies were in this match the entire afternoon with the last three singles match all needing three sets to decide a winner. But by winning two of those matchups, Nevada snapped UC Davis’ five-match win streak, its longest of the season and second of the year, and handed the Aggies a rare loss on Friday at the McArthur Tennis Center.

UC Davis will head to Saint Mary’s on Sunday with a 11-4 record while Nevada improves to 4-5.

After allowing the Wolf Pack to collect the doubles point, and first two singles matches that finished, Nikita Pradeep earned the Aggies’ first team point of the afternoon with her 6-3, 6-1 win against Carlijn Ketting.

Isabella von Ebbe provided the Aggies’ other team point when she topped Milena Achlamov in three sets. After falling 6-4 in the first, von Ebbe roared back to take the next two sets, and the match, by virtue of her 6-3, 6-2 scores.

First serve in Moraga this Sunday is set for noon.
