Los Angeles - The No. 11 UCLA women's tennis team continued its on court dominance, registering a 6-1 win over 17th-ranked Fresno State Friday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. The victory pushes the Bruins to 5-0 on the year, while the Bulldogs fall to 3-3.

UCLA started the day by claiming the one point awarded for doubles play. Sarah Gregg and Catherine Hawley registered an 8-4 victory at No. 3 doubles, while Megan Bradley and Lauren Fisher clinched the doubles point in the No. 2 position, notching an 8-3 victory. With the point already decided, No. 4-ranked Simone Jardim and Kim Niggemeyer of Fresno State edged UCLA's eighth-ranked Petya Marinova and Sara Walker, 9-7 at No. 1 doubles.

Ahead 1-0, the Bruins dominated singles play, winning five of six matches in straight sets. Hawley turned in the most impressive showing of the day, recording a 6-0, 6-0 victory over FSU's Kelly Ramirez in the No. 6 position.

In addition to Hawley, four other Bruins were victorious, as Walker, Marinova, Gregg and Fisher all managed straight-set wins.

The only singles match UCLA did not win Friday came at the No. 1 position where Bradley was forced to retire with an injury against Niggemeyer. Bradley took the first set 6-1 and Niggemeyer had just claimed the second set 7-5 when play was suspended.

The Bruins return to action tomorrow, traveling to Malibu for a match against Pepperdine beginning at 11:00 a.m. The Bruins defeated the Waves, 6-1 back on Jan. 26.
