Bruins Fall to Bears, 6-1 on Senior Day

March 28, 2009

LOS ANGELES - The ninth-ranked UCLA women's tennis team played its final home contest of the regular season on Saturday, dropping a 6-1 decision to No. 8 Cal at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. The Bruins, who will play their final five matches of the season on the road, fall to 13-5 overall and 1-2 in the Pac-10. The Golden Bears improve to 12-4 and 3-1 in conference action.

Saturday's contest marked the first meeting between the Bruins and Bears since last year's NCAA Final (a 4-0 UCLA win). It also was the second day in a row that UCLA found itself in a hole early after dropping the doubles point. The lone bright spot for the team in doubles came at court No. 2, where 46th-ranked Carling Seguso and Stephanie Wetmore upset ninth-ranked Marina Cossou/Claire Ilcinkas, 8-3.

Similar to their 6-1 loss to No. 11 Stanford on Friday, the Bruins only managed to win one singles match. UCLA's win came at court No. 5, as senior Ashley Joelson notched a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Marion Ravelojaona. It was a big win for Joelson, who was playing in her final regular season home match on Saturday.

Seguso nearly picked up UCLA's second win of the day at court No. 6, however she dropped a long tiebreaker against Stephany Chang, 6-2, 1-6, (15-13).

Seniors Anna-Viktoria Lind and Joelson were honored with a special ceremony prior to the start of the match. UCLA was also hosting a special alumni reunion this weekend and members of UCLA's first national championship team of 1981 were recognized between singles and doubles.

Next up for UCLA is an April 3 encounter with Washington in Seattle.
