Oct. 5, 2012
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -
The Tulsa women’s tennis team, in its second competition of the fall season, opened up the Razorback Classic with a strong showing in doubles play on Friday, October 5 at the Billingsley Tennis Center.
The Golden Hurricane went a perfect 4-0 in doubles competition, as junior Maria San’Anna and freshman Renata Kuricova defeated Ana Belmar Hernandez and Sarah McLean of Arkansas 8-5 to gather TU’s first and closest doubles victory. The freshmen duo of Carol Benito and Maria Rivera Perez also picked up an 8-3 victory over Margot De Haan and Valeria Terentyeva of Stephen F. Austin.
In singles play, senior Samantha Vickers won her match against Nataly Yoo of Stephen F. Austin, 6-4, 6-3. Junior Michelle Farley defeated Margot De Haan of Stephen F. Austin 6-2, 6-3. Benito also picked up a victory in singles play defeating Missouri’s Madison Rhyner 6-4, 2-6, 6-4, and Rivera Perez earned 6-0, 6-2 victory over Laura Servise.
“Our ladies came out strong in the doubles as bad weather took us indoors,” commented Head Coach Dean Orford. “We were very happy with the singles effort from Vickers and Farley who were very focused and won in straight sets. It was also nice to see Benito and Rivera Perez win both their singles and doubles matches as they have improved during the young season.”
