No. 22 UCLA Downs No. 25 Baylor, 5-2

March 13, 2007

LOS ANGELES - The 22nd-ranked UCLA women's tennis team played its final non-conference opponent of the regular season on Tuesday, posting a 5-2 victory over No. 25 Baylor at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. The Bruins improve to 9-5 overall, while the Bears fall to 8-6.

UCLA got on the board early, taking victories at the top two positions to earn the one point awarded for doubles play. After Ashley Joelson and Alex McGoodwin recorded an 8-1 victory at the No. 2 spot, 33rd-ranked Yasmin Schnack and Riza Zalameda clinched the point with an 8-4 victory over Zuzana Cerna/Zuzana Chmelarova at court No. 1.

Once singles play began, the Bruins quickly registered three straight-set wins to clinch a 4-0 victory. Zalameda, who is ranked 24th nationally in singles, put the Bruins up 2-0 with a 6-4, 6-2 decision against 2005 NCAA singles champion Zuzana Zemenova. That victory also avenges a three-set loss Zemenova at the Riviera/ITA All-American back in October.

The Bruins took a 3-0 lead when Schnack, playing right next door at court No. 2, posted a 6-2, 6-3 win over 67th ranked Lenka Broosova. Schnack is currently ranked No. 36 in singles play. The match was clinched at court No. 6, as Elizabeth Lumpkin was a 6-3, 6-2 winner over Chmelarova.

McGoodwin then made the score 5-0 in favor of UCLA when she downed Klara Zrustova, 6-2, 6-0 at court No. 4.

Baylor took the final two matches of the afternoon, with Cerna (court No. 3) and Iva Mihaylova (court No. 5) both recording victories.

UCLA hosts Arizona at the LATC this Friday at 1:30 p.m.
