No. 4 Women's Tennis Blanks UC Irvine, 7-0

Jan. 25, 2012

LOS ANGELES - The fourth-ranked UCLA women's tennis team had little trouble in its 2012 season opener on Wednesday, dispatching of UC Irvine, 7-0 at the Los Angeles Tennis Center.

This year's Bruin team features many new faces, with freshmen making up four of the six singles positions on Wednesday. The newcomers didn't disappoint, as Robin Anderson, Skylar Morton, Kaitlin Ray and Chanelle Van Nguyen posted singles wins in their dual-match debuts. Anderson, ranked No. 8 nationally and the lone newcomer playing in the top-half of the lineup, was a straight-set winner on the day, dispatching of Kristina Smith, 6-1, 7-6(4) at court No. 2.

UCLA's two upperclassmen in the lineup, senior McCall Jones and junior Pamela Montez, were equally as impressive, as both cruised to straight-set wins. Jones, the team's No. 1 player all of last season, resumed her place at the top of the lineup on Wednesday, downing Courtney Byron, 6-2, 6-4 at court No. 1. Montez was a 6-0, 6-4 winner over Franz Goettsching at court No. 3.

UCLA hosts ITA Kick-Off Weekend this Friday and Saturday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. The Bruins open up the event against Utah on Friday at 1:00 p.m.
