Madison, Wisc. - The No. 2 UCLA women's tennis team rounded out play at the USTA/ITA National Team Indoors on Sunday, defeating No. 16 Clemson, 5-2 in a consolation match at the University of Wisconsin's Nielsen Tennis Stadium. The Bruins (5-1), who were upset in the first round on Thursday, rebounded to win two matches in the consolation round.
UCLA, which had lost the doubles point in its two previous matches at the Team Indoors, looked impressive on Saturday, cruising to three straight wins to claim an early 1-0 lead.
Bruin Elizabeth Lumpkin then put UCLA ahead 2-0, as she cruised to a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Laurianne Henry at court No. 5. Riza Zalameda, ranked No. 25 nationally, picked up a huge win at court No. 1, upsetting fourth-ranked Ani Mijacika, 6-1, 6-2.
Freshman Andrea Remynse gave UCLA an insurmountable 4-0 lead, as she registered a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Estefania Balda at court No. 3. The final Bruin to pick up a singles win on Saturday was 41st-ranked Tracy Lin, who had won the first set 6-2 and was up 3-0 in the second set when her opponent, Carol Salge, retired due to injury.
The Bruins return home to the Los Angeles Tennis Center next week, hosting Loyola Marymount on Wednesday at 1:30 p.m.
