DAVIS, Calif. — Coming off a win and a loss from last weekend after going against San Diego State and No. 9 UC San Diego, respectively, the UC Davis women’s tennis team will make a short trek south to Stockton, Calif., to meet with Pacific on Saturday at the Eve Zimmerman Tennis Center, starting at noon. On Tuesday of the following week, UC Davis is scheduled to host Hawai’i at the Marya Welch Tennis Center for a Big West Conference matchup starting at 1:30 p.m.

Going into this weekend dual, the Aggies carry a 4-1 overall record.

Looking back on the two matchups that took place in Southern California, UC Davis and San Diego State were in a 3-3 tie going into the last singles match of the day, which was between junior Isabella von Ebbe and the Aztec’s Abbie Mulbarger; however, the latter of the two clinched the win after her performance in the third set’s tiebreaker to end the day with a 4-3 San Diego State victory.

In the match against UC San Diego, the Aggies started off strong by getting the doubles lead, thanks to Aggie partners Kristina Breisacher and Lani-Rae Green, as well as Nikita Pradeep and von Ebbe, who won their match against the Tritons’ Suchen Lin and Chloe Wright by getting six in-a-row set wins after reaching a 1-5 disadvantage. Entering into singles play, UC San Diego captured one match victory before UC Davis swept the competition by acquiring the next three match wins to solidify their final 5-2 victory.

Pacific enters the matchup with UC Davis holding a 2-0 overall record in the 2018 dual season. Leading the Tiger’s scoreboard in singles are players Anneroos Nederstigt, Sabrina Rodriguez, Maayan Seal, and Anna Ramos Vinolas, all of which carry a 2-0 record, while partners Yuki Asami and Ramos Vinolas lead in doubles play with a 2-0 record.

The last time the Aggies and the Tigers met on the courts together for a dual match was in late February of the 2016-2017 season, where UC Davis finished their matchup with a 5-2 victory over the Stockton, Calif., university after collecting the first team point, as well as four of the six singles matches.

Hawai’i carries a 0-1 overall record in dual competition as of time of release; however, prior to the Aggie matchup, the Rainbow Wahine is scheduled to go up against San Diego State on Thursday (Feb. 8), followed by Long Beach State on Saturday (Feb. 10). The last UC Davis and Hawai’i dual matchup occurred last season as well, but it was the island university that scored a victory over the Aggies.
