DAVIS, Calif. — Coming off a 6-1 victory over fellow Big West Conference school UC Riverside last Sunday afternoon, the UC Davis women’s tennis team makes a quick turnaround this week as they host both Idaho and Utah on Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon, respectively. The first of the two will be a 9:30 p.m. match taking place at the Sparetime Indoor Tennis Center in Gold River, Calif., while the latter is scheduled for a 2 p.m. playtime at the Marya Welch Tennis Center.
Going into the first match of the competition week, the Aggies hold a 10-3 overall record for the 2018 season.
For to the 2018 Women’s Standings in the Big West Conference as of Mar. 11, UC Davis stills remains in third behind Cal State Fullerton and UC Santa Barbara, while according to the ITA Rankings website as released on Mar. 13, neither the Aggies, Vandals, nor the Utes are ranked among the top-50 teams.
Looking back on the action that took place in the UC Riverside dual match, which started with singles play due to possible time constraints, UC Davis scored the first four singles match wins to secure their dual victory. Kristina Breisacher, Isabella von Ebbe, and Sara Tsukamoto contributed to the four-point team score after their straight-set victories over their respective Highlander opponents, while senior and co-captain Lani-Rae Green clinched the match with her straight-set win over UC Riverside’s Sara Khattab at the No. 3 position.
Both teams agreed to finish out the remainder of the game, despite the win already belonging to the Aggies. The host team made the score 4-1 after winning a singles match at the No. 1 position, but the visiting team went on to collect the last singles match, as well as the doubles point, to conclude their day at a 6-1 victory over the Highlanders.
After last weekend’s matchup, sophomore Nikita Pradeep secured yet another singles victory to bump her undefeated record to 11-0 for the dual season. As a team, UC Davis is currently 44-24 overall in singles play.
Idaho is currently 3-3 overall, but will subject to change after their matchup with Sacramento State’s team, scheduled to take place in the afternoon leading up to the night match with the Aggies. As a team, the Vandals are 16-17 in singles, with Marianna Petrel leading their scoreboard with five wins.
Utah holds a 8-5 overall record for the dual season, winning their most recent match with Arizona, 5-2, after suffering three prior losses in-a-row against Denver, New Mexico, and then-No. 34 Arizona State. The Utes are led by Taylor Carlton in singles play with seven wins, while tandems Alexia Petrovic and Jena Cheng, as well as Carlton and Whitney Turley each have six doubles wins apiece.
