Urbana, Ill. - UCLA's Robin Anderson and Skylar Morton notched a big upset in the NCAA doubles draw on Saturday, downing the tournament's third-seeded team to earn a spot in Sunday's semifinals at the NCAA Championships at the University of Illinois' Atkins Tennis Center.
Anderson and Morton, unseeded in the 32-team draw, picked up their third win of the tournament on Saturday, downing Patricia Veresova and Mary Weatherholt of Nebraska, 6-4, 6-7(5), 7-6(3). The two Bruins will now face 5-8 seeded Alexa Guarachi and Mary Anne Macfarlane of Alabama in Sunday's semifinals, scheduled for 4:00 p.m. (CST).
The victory served as a bit of revenge for Anderson, who lost to Weatherholt in three sets in singles on Friday in the round of 16.
Due to rain in the Champaign-Urbana area on Saturday, play was moved indoors to the Atkins Tennis Center. The tournament has mostly been played outdoors at the Khan Outdoor Tennis Complex.
