Second-Seeded Bruins Edge Arkansas, 4-3 at USTA/ITA National Team Indoors

Feb. 8, 2008

Madison, Wisc. - The second-seeded UCLA women's tennis team was able to rebound from Thursday's first-round loss at the USTA/ITA National Team Indoors, as the Bruins defeated Arkansas, 4-3 in a consolation match at the Nielsen Tennis Stadium on Friday. UCLA (4-1) will round out play at the Indoors on Saturday, taking on No. 16 Clemson at 9:00 a.m. (CST).

Similar to its match against North Carolina on Thursday, UCLA lost the doubles point after suffering a pair of defeats at court Nos. 2 and 3. The Bruins' lone doubles win came at the No. 1 position, where Elizabeth Lumpkin and Riza Zalameda upset 45th-ranked Maryoi Franco/Nanar Airapetian, 8-6. Lumpkin filled in for Yasmin Schnack, who was unable to play on Friday due to an injury suffered in the North Carolina match.

Although the Bruins dropped the doubles point, UCLA responded in singles play, taking four-straight wins to clinch the match. Tracy Lin, Ashley Joelson and Lumpkin were the first three to finish, giving the Bruins a 3-1 lead in the match. UCLA freshman Andrea Remynse clinched the win at court No. 3, taking a 6-4, 6-1 victory over Anouk Tigu.

Zalameda nearly pulled off a big victory at court No. 1, as she took the first set 7-5 against top-ranked Aurelija Miseviciute. The No. 1 player in the country bounced back, however, winning the next two sets 6-3, 7-5.

With UCLA up 4-2 and the match already decided, senior Alex McGoodwin retired up 4-3 in the first set against Delia Damaschin at court No. 4. McGoodwin, who has been injured, has not played singles in any of the Bruins' previous dual matches this season.
