Berkeley, Calif. - The No. 9 UCLA women's tennis team pulled off a big upset on Friday, taking a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over sixth-ranked Cal at the Hellman Tennis Complex. The Bruins, undefeated in the Pac-10 at 4-0, improve to 15-4 on the season. The Golden Bears fall to 13-4 and 4-1 in conference play.

With the score tied at 3-3, freshman Andrea Remynse, ranked No. 52 nationally, won the clinching match for the Bruins at court No. 4 with a 3-6, 7-6(10), 6-3 victory over No. 91 Claire Ilcinkas. It marked a big win for Remynse, who lost the clinching match in a 4-3 loss to the Golden Bears back on March 1.

UCLA lost the doubles point Friday as, after winning the first match at court No. 3, the Bruins dropped consecutive matches at court Nos. 2 and 1. Ashley Joelson and Alex McGoodwin were the only winners for the Bruins in doubles, taking a dominating 8-1 win over Daron Moore/Cristina Visico.

The first singles match to finish was at court No. 2, where freshman Marina Cossou logged her 24th win of the year by taking down No. 43 Tracy Lin, 6-4, 6-2. The Bruins then received wins from Yasmin Schnack (court No. 3) and Elizabeth Lumpkin (court No. 6) to tie the match at two points each. Cal then took a 3-2 lead when No. 16 Susie Babos completed her match with a 7-4 win in a third set tiebreaker over senior Riza Zalameda. Babos dropped the first set to the 11th-ranked Zalameda, but stormed back to take a 3-6, 6-2, 7-6(4) win.

UCLA won at court No. 5 next, as Joelson defeated senior Stephanie Kusano, 1-6, 6-4, 6-4 to tie the dual match at 3-3. That win set up Remynse's match-clinching victory at court No. 4.

UCLA returns to action tomorrow, facing No. 5 Stanford at Noon.
