No. 2 Stanford Downs No. 8 UCLA, 6-1

March 25, 2011

LOS ANGELES - The eighth-ranked UCLA women's tennis team was unable to pull off the upset against No. 2 Stanford on Friday, falling 6-1 in a Pac-10 Conference match at the Los Angeles Tennis Center.

Although the Bruins (11-5; 1-1 Pac-10) dropped the doubles point on Friday, UCLA didn't go down without a fight. In fact, the Bruins actually served for the match up 7-6 at both court Nos. 1 and 2. Stanford, however, managed to break serve in both instances. The Cardinal, who already had an 8-3 win at court No. 3, clinched the point when second-ranked Hilary Barte and Mallory Burdette downed 17th-ranked Courtney Dolehide and Andrea Remynse, 9-7 at court No. 1.

The Cardinal (16-0; 3-0 Pac-10) followed up the doubles point by taking five of six matches in singles play. The lone point for UCLA was claimed at court No. 6, where Maya Johansson battled back to take a 2-6, 7-5, 6-2 victory over Veronica Li.

Despite the loss, UCLA did hang tough on the front courts, as Noelle Hickey (court No. 2), Remynse (court No. 3) and McCall Jones (court No. 1) all extended their matches to three sets against three of the top 30 players in America.

The Bruins will look to rebound on Saturday as they host No. 10 Cal at Noon. It marks the last regular-season home match for seniors Hickey, Johansson and Remynse.
