No. 3 Women's Tennis Upset by No. 12 Cal, 4-3
By: UCLA Athletics
Berkeley, Calif. - The No. 3 UCLA women's tennis team lost a heartbreaker on Saturday afternoon in Berkeley, suffering its first conference loss of the season in a 4-3 setback against No. 12 Cal at the Hellman Tennis Complex. With the loss, UCLA falls to 18-2 overall and 6-1 in Pac-12 play. Cal is now in the driver's seat to take home this year's conference title, as the Bears are 14-4 overall and a perfect 7-0 in the Pac-12 with just three league matches remaining.

After more than four hours on court, Saturday's showdown ultimately came down to third sets in the last two singles matches, as Kyle McPhillips was battling Lynn Chi at court No. 4, and Catherine Harrison was in a tight contest with Klara Fabikova at court No. 5. It looked like UCLA would get the clinching win at court No. 4, where McPhillips was serving for the match up 5-2 over Chi in the third set. Harrison and Fabikova, meanwhile, were in a third-set tiebreaker at No. 5. Harrison owned a match point in that tiebreaker but Fabikova prevailed in the end, converting her third match point for a 3-6, 6-4, 7-6(8) victory to tie the dual match at 3-3.

Back at court No. 4, Chi was able to break McPhillips both times she served for the match, eventually sending it to a tiebreaker, where she prevailed 7-5 to give Cal the 4-3 upset.

The Bruins were looking for a sweep on Saturday, having already beaten Stanford, 4-3 on Friday afternoon.

UCLA will look to regroup next week, hosting both Arizona (April 11) and Arizona State (April 12).
