Fourth-Seeded UCLA Wins Opening Match at Team Indoors
By: UCLA Athletics
Charlottesville, Va. - The fourth-seeded UCLA women's tennis team got off to a good start at the USTA/ITA National Team Indoors on Friday afternoon, downing No. 17 Texas, 4-2 at the Boar's Head Sports Club in Charlottesville, Va. With the win, the Bruins (6-0) earn a trip to the quarterfinals where they will face fifth-seeded USC (4-0) at 3:30 p.m. (EST) on Saturday. The Women of Troy were 4-3 winners over Alabama on Friday.

UCLA clinched Friday's doubles point when top-ranked Robin Anderson and Jennifer Brady posted a 6-4 victory over 21st-ranked Breaunna Addison and Pippa Horn at court No. 1. The Bruins had previously notched a win at court No. 2, where Catherine Harrison and Kyle McPhillips notched a 6-3 win over Elizabeth Begley and Neda Koprcina.

Wins by Anderson (court No. 1) and McPhillips (court No. 4) in singles put UCLA ahead 3-0 in the match and the Bruins were within a point of getting the victory. Texas, however, had other plans, as the Longhorns took wins at court Nos. 6 and 3 to cut the lead to 3-2.

Fortunately for UCLA, Harrison took care of business at court No. 5, downing Horn, 7-6(4), 6-3 to clinch the win for the Bruins. Ninth-ranked Chanelle Van Nguyen was up 7-5, 4-3 over Ratnika Batra at court No. 2 when play was suspended.

UCLA has played in the last two National Team Indoor finals, winning the event in 2012 and falling in the title match a year ago.
