Brook Buck-Kelcy Tefft (Notre Dame)#2 Melanie Gloria-Tinesta Rowe (Fresno State) def. #3 Brook Buck-Kelcy Tefft (Notre Dame), 6-1, 7-5
On the match...
"We got off to a slow start and kind of picked it up at the end. The girls we played had great serves, and they held serve pretty well. We didn't break them the whole match, so there was a little bit of a struggle there. We did get broken. They're a really good team and it just wasn't our day."
"Whoever was serving, the girl at the net moved well and vollied well, so they had that going for them the whole time. It's hard to win a match when you can't break serve. We were having trouble a couple times holding serve. It just wasn't our day."
#2 Melanie Gloria-Tinesta Rowe (Fresno State)
#2 Melanie Gloria-Tinesta Rowe (Fresno State) def. #3 Brook Buck-Kelcy Tefft (Notre Dame), 6-1, 7-5
On that match...
"It was a good match today, the crowd was really against us, but we are use to it. We've played in conditions like that before. The two girls from Notre Dame (Brook Buck-Kelcy Tefft) are very good doubles pair. They don't miss a lot and they come to the net. First set we won it pretty quickly, but in the second set they started to make less mistakes. It kind of threw us a little bit off our game. We came back and then won the important game at 4-all, we broke their serve and that was key. Then we finished it up by winning my serve."
