LOS ANGELES - In a battle of top 20 opponents at UCLA's Los Angeles Tennis Center on Monday, the third-ranked Bruin women's tennis team notched its 12th victory of the season in the form of a 4-1 non-conference victory over No. 18 Baylor. With the win, UCLA (12-1), whose lone loss on the season was to Duke in the final of the ITA National Team Indoors last month, is expected to ascend to the No. 1 ranking in the country when the new team rankings are released on Tuesday.

UCLA had won the doubles point in every match this season heading into its showdown with Baylor and Monday was no different, as the Bruins posted wins at court Nos. 1 and 2 to claim the one point awarded for doubles play. After top-ranked Robin Anderson and Jennifer Brady took care of business at court No. 1, 11th-ranked Catherine Harrison and Kyle McPhillips finished off the Bears at the No. 2 position, downing Alex Leatu and Jordaan Sanford, 8-1.

Anderson would give UCLA a 2-0 lead in the match not long after singles play began, as she cruised at court No. 1, downing 38th-ranked Kiah Generette, 6-0, 6-3. Anderson continues to be the Bruins' highest ranked singles play at No. 3 nationally.

Baylor (9-4) answered right back at the No. 3 position, cutting the lead to 2-1 when Sanford upset ninth-ranked Chanelle Van Nguyen, 6-3, 6-2. Fortunately for the Bruins, Sanford's win would account for the Bears' lone point on the afternoon, as wins by McPhillips (court No. 5) and Brady (court No. 2) sealed the victory for UCLA. Brady's 7-5, 6-4 match-clinching victory over Ema Burgic at court No. 2 closed the door on what could've been an interesting finish to the match, as the Bears were within a game of winning at court No. 4, and involved in a very tight third set at court No. 6. Both of those matches were suspended at the time of Brady's victory.

UCLA travels to Salt Lake City this Friday to take on Utah at 1:30 p.m.
