Results

Los Angeles - The No. 8-ranked UCLA women's tennis team took the doubles point then captured four of six singles matches, cruising to a 5-2 victory Friday over visiting Washington State at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. With the win, UCLA improves to 14-3 overall and 4-1 in the Pac-10. The Cougars fall to 9-9 overall and 1-5 in conference play.

Following three very close doubles contests, the Bruins actually clinched the match on the top three courts after three straight-set victories. At No. 1 singles, Megan Bradley defeated WSU's Erica Perkins, 6-2, 6-1. Bruin No. 2 Sara Walker also made quick work of Stacy McKenna, registering a 6-2, 6-1 decision of her own. At No. 3 singles, Bruin freshman Sarah Gregg gave UCLA a 4-0 lead when she defeated WSU's Orsolya Sallai, 6-3, 6-0.

On the back three courts, WSU's Chris Martinez made the score 4-1 after she notched a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Mariko Fritz-Krockow. The Cougars won their second match of the day at the No. 5 singles position where Nora Gaal defeated UCLA's Catherine Hawley, 7-5, 6-3. The No. 4 singles position was the last to finish as Lauren Fisher edged WSU's Lorena Arias, 7-5, 3-6, 6-4 in the only three-set match of the day.

UCLA returns to the courts tomorrow to take on No. 20 Washington at the LATC beginning at Noon.
