Doubles Teams Still Alive at Pac-12 Championships

April 27, 2012

Ojai, Calif. - After rain forced the cancellation of much of the action on Thursday, members of the UCLA women's tennis team continued play at the Pac-12 Championships on Friday at the Ojai Valley Athletic Club.

Unfortunately, UCLA's last two remaining singles players were both ousted from the tournament on Friday. Freshman Robin Anderson, who was the second seed in the Championship draw, began the day with a 6-2, 6-3 win over Stanford's Ellen Tsay in the round of 16. She wasn't as fortunate in the quarterfinals, however, as she was forced to retire in her match with Cal's Annet Schutting. After winning the first set 6-4, Anderson suffered an injury and dropped the second set at love. She retired before starting a third set.

After posting a straight-set win over Stanford's Natalie Dillion in Thursday's first round, senior Carling Seguso was beaten in the round of 16 of the Invitational draw on Friday, losing to Washington State's Olga Musilovich, 6-2, 7-5.

Although UCLA didn't fare well in singles, the Bruins did have two doubles teams reach Saturday's action at Libbey Park. Courtney Dolehide and Pamela Montez beat Colorado's Winde Janssens and Kristina Schleich in the first round of the Championship draw, setting up a quarterfinal showdown with USC's Valeria Pulido and Zoe Scandalis on Saturday at 9:00 a.m. In the Invitatonal Draw, Holly Fleming and Morgan Thomas downed Washington State's Elisabeth Fournier and Charlotte Koning, 8-2. Next up is a meeting with Washington's Julija Lukac and Samantha Smith, also at 9:00 a.m.
