By: UCLA Athletics
LOS ANGELES - The fifth-ranked UCLA women's tennis team won its opening match of ITA Kick Off Weekend at the Los Angeles Tennis Center on Friday afternoon and has earned a right to play in Saturday's championship match at 3:00 p.m.

The Bruins (2-0) looked impressive against San Diego in Friday's opening round, taking a 4-0 victory over the Toreros.

UCLA was paced on the day by the No. 1-ranked player in the nation in both singles and doubles Robin Anderson. Anderson teamed with freshman Jennifer Brady at court No. 1, taking a 6-1 victory over USD's Shani Blecher and Colomba Di Filippo. Anderson then notched a perfect performance against Blecher in singles, winning 6-0, 6-0.

Other singles winners for UCLA on the day were sophomores Catherine Harrison and Kyle McPhillips. Harrison was a 6-1, 6-0 winner over Mikayla Morkel-Brink at court No. 4, while McPhillips, ranked No. 36 nationally, downed Di Filippo, 6-0, 6-2 at court No. 4 to clinch the victory for UCLA.

The Bruins will take on TCU, a 4-0 winner over UC Irvine earlier in the day, on Saturday at 3:00 p.m., with the winner of that match earning a spot in the USTA/ITA National Team Indoor Championships next month in Charlottesville, Va. San Diego (0-1) rounds out ITA Kick Off Weekend with a consolation match against UC Irvine on Saturday at 6:00 p.m.
