Bruin junior Robin Anderson lost just one game in singles action on Wednesday and actually improved on that performance on Thursday, as she downed UCI's Marivick Mamiit, 6-0, 6-0 at court No. 1. With the win, Anderson, the top-ranked player in the nation, improves her record to 11-2 on the year.
In addition to Anderson, four other Bruin players posted straight-set victories on the afternoon, as Kyle McPhillips, Catherine Harrison, Courtney Dolehide and Kelly Shaffer all followed suit. The only match to go to a 10-point tiebreaker came at court No. 2, where Chanelle Van Nguyen outlasted Franziska Goettsching, 6-7, 6-0, (10-4).
UCLA will next be in action at the USTA/ITA National Team Indoors from Feb. 7-10 in Charlottesville, Va. The Bruins don't have another home match until hosting Pepperdine on Feb. 19.
