No. 8 Bruins Defeat No. 18 ASU, 5-1

Feb. 20, 2004

Results

LOS ANGELES - In a match delayed more than three and a half hours due to rain, the No. 8-ranked UCLA women's tennis team eventually registered a 5-1 decision over No. 18 Arizona State Friday under the lights at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. The Bruins improve to 5-3 overall with the victory, while the Sun Devils drop to 2-2.

Due to the long delay, it was decided that doubles was only going to be contested if necessary, so the match began with all six singles matches. First to finish was court No. 2, where Bruin freshman Daniela Bercek defeated Vana Tomas, 6-2, 6-0. Bercek is now 9-1 overall and a perfect 6-0 in dual-match play.

ASU quickly tied the match at 1-1 when Cindy Sureephong knocked off UCLA's Lauren Fisher, 6-2, 6-1 at the No. 5 position. It turned out to be the Sun Devils' only point of the day however, as UCLA moved out to straight-set victories on the remaining four courts.

Next off was court No. 1, where Jackie Carleton, ranked No. 17 nationally, dropped just one game en route to a 6-1, 6-0 victory over 50th-ranked Joslynn Burkett. Bruin junior Sarah Gregg put UCLA ahead 3-1 with a 6-2, 6-1 decision over Sabrina Capannolo at the No. 4 spot.

The match was clinched at the No. 6 position, where Laura Gordon defeated ASU's Kady Pooler, 6-2, 6-1. In the final match of the evening, Bruin sophomore Feriel Esseghir overcame a tough first set to knock off Wendy Pilecka, 7-6(3), 6-0.

With the match decided, doubles was not played.

Depending on the weather, the Bruins are scheduled to take on Arizona tomorrow at the LATC beginning at Noon.
