Baylor Upsets No. 16 Florida Men, 4-3 (BU recap)

Bears snap three-match losing to Gators.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The 20th-ranked Baylor men’s tennis team pulled off the biggest upset in a string of five straight wins, knocking off 16th-ranked Florida on Saturday at Linder Stadium.

“It was a blast out there today,” said head coach Matt Knoll. “The guys really came together and looked like a Baylor men’s tennis team. We competed hard. We were focused. We were resilient and stayed together. Every time you go on the road all of those things are really important. We got into a tough match that was super competitive from beginning to end and fortunately we were able to come through in the end.”

With the five straight wins, Baylor has raised its record to 7-1, while Florida falls to 6-4.

The match started with the Bears claiming the doubles point for the seventh time this season. Baylor’s Julian Lenz and Patrick Pradella defeated the No. 46 doubles team of Mike Alford and Florent Diep, 8-3. Following that win on court two, Baylor’s Diego Galeano and Marko Krickovic disposed of Florida’s Billy Federhofer and Luke Johnson, 8-5, to give Baylor the early 1-0 lead.

The Gators fought their way back into the match by winning the first two singles points. Florida’s Stephane Piro struck first with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Baylor’s Tony Lupieri in the No. 3 spot.

Florida continued the comeback with a victory by Luke Johnson, 7-5, 6-3, over Diego Galeano on court six.

The Bears answered back with a decisive win in the No. 1 spot where Patrick Pradella defeated Florida’s No. 78 Bob van Overbeek 6-4, 6-4.

The momentum was short lived for the Bears as Florida quickly countered with a 7-6 (7-4),1-6, 6-4 victory by Billy Federhofer over 56th-ranked Marko Krickovic in the No. 5 spot. The win put the Gators within one point of clinching the match with two contests still on court.

Baylor’s No. 76 Mate Zsiga came up with a match-tying 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory over Florida’s Mike Alford in the No. 4 spot, leaving the fate of the match to be decided on court two.

In a back and forth brawl, No. 59 Julian Lenz sealed the Baylor victory by defeating No. 36 Florent Diep 6-3, 4-6, 6-3.

“I felt like we would play a good match in terms of our focus level,” said Knoll. “We didn’t do that last time we played on the road against a good team. That was gratifying to see the guys come out and get into the match with the kind of energy that you need to beat these kinds of teams. This was a huge step for us, and winning was sort of a bonus. We gained a lot from just being in the environment and being able to win. Julian Lenz did a fantastic job out there in the third set of just being out there and playing his game and being aggressive.”

Baylor’s win tied the all-time series record between the two teams at 6-6.

The Bears will return to action next Saturday when they welcome Laredo Community College and Abilene Christian for the team’s second doubleheader of the season. Following Saturday’s doubleheader, the Bears will host three top-10 teams including No. 1 Virginia.

“We needed something like this to happen to this group and now it has,” said coach Knoll. “We will grow a lot from this and be better because of it. That is why we are here. We knew Florida would push us and give us an opportunity to play good matches and it was exactly what we hoped for.”

Owls Snap Streak with 4-3 Win Over U La La Men (Rice recap)

Head west for Spring Break

The Rice men’s tennis team fought of a determined challenge from Louisiana Lafayette to snap a four-match losing streak at Jake Hess Tennis Stadium on Saturday.

The Owls (3-6) had not won since a pair of 7-0 wins on January 27, including a pair of tough 4-3 decisions to LSU and TCU last weekend. From the outset on Saturday, it was apparent that the end of their streak would not come easily.

The doubles point was not decided until Leif Berger and Jonathan Chang emerged with a 7-4 win in a tiebreaker and once singles play opened, Louisiana fought back from losses in five first sets to win a pair of three-set matches in addition to a straight set win on Court 5.

Freshman Gustavo Gonzalez upped the Owls’ margin to 2-0 with a straight set win on Court 6 and after the Cajuns’ win on Court 5, Philipp Seifert and Adam Gustafsson provided the clinching margin with wins on Courts 3 and 2.

The Owls will head west for the remainder of their Spring Break. They will face San Diego and Fresno State in a pair of dual matches in addition to participating in the West Coast Doubles Championship in Lo Jolla, California.

They will be back in action at Jake Hess on March 9 when they host a doubleheader with Abilene Christian and Penn State.

Baylor Drops 4-2 Contest At No. 22 Notre Dame Women (BU recap/box)

Lady Bears fall to 1-6 against top-25 ranked opponents this season.

NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The 19th-ranked Baylor women’s tennis team opened a two-match road swing with a 4-2 loss at No. 22 Notre Dame on Saturday at the Eck Tennis Pavilion.

The match was originally slated to be played on Friday, but had to be moved to an indoor match on Saturday due to inclement weather in the area that also affected Baylor’s travel plans.

Baylor has now lost six of seven matches and is 4-6 on the season. However, all six losses have come against top-25 opponents. Notre Dame upped its record to 6-3 with the win.

“Every time that we take one step forward, we seem to take two steps back again,” head coach Joey Scrivano said. “Our doubles play is getting better, but then we have some singles players who are struggling to understand what it takes to play consistent high-level tennis.”

The No. 1 doubles tandem of Ema Burgic and Victoria Kisialeva, ranked No. 41, upset 30th-ranked Julie Sabacinski and Britney Sanders, 8-6, to open the match. BU’s top duo improved to 4-1 in dual-match play with the win.

However, Notre Dame would bounce back to take the next two doubles contests and the point.

First, Jennifer Kellner and Chrissie McGaffigan got past BU’s Alex Leatu and Kiah Generette at the No. 2 spot, 9-8(5). When that match wrapped up, the No. 3 doubles match between Notre Dame’s Quinn Gleason and Katherine White and Baylor’s Megan Horter and Alex Clay was headed to a tiebreaker. Notre Dame went on to clinch the match in the breaker, 9-8(2).

Entering singles action with a 1-0 deficit, Baylor quickly turned the match around by taking the first two singles matches.

Newcomer Maria Biryukova blew past White at the No. 5 spot, 6-2, 6-4, to even the match, before Leatu collected a 6-4, 6-3 win over Julie Vrabel at the No. 6 position.

“Maria has done a great job coming in and being successful for us, after being thrown into the fire,” Scrivano said. She plays with maturity and toughness. Alex’s game is coming together well and we are excited for what she can do for us down the road.”

The Baylor rally would be cut short as Notre Dame’s 74th-ranked Sanders pulled off a three-set comeback win over 13th-ranked Burgic, 0-6, 6-4, 6-2, at the top of the lineup.

To clinch the match, Jennifer Kellner got past Victoria Kisialeva, 6-2, 6-4 at the No. 2 position.

When that match concluded, play on court 3 between Quinn Gleason and 86th-ranked Megan Horter was suspended.

Baylor will now make the quick turnaround to face ninth-ranked Northwestern at 1 p.m. CT on Sunday in Evanston, Ill. Northwestern (5-4) dropped a 5-2 decision to Texas on Friday and has lost four of its last five.

The Bears and Wildcats are set to meet at the Combe Tennis Center with the series record tied at three matches apiece.

Northwestern’s lineup boasts two ranked singles players: No. 41 Kate Turvy and No. 83 Belinda Niu. Linda Abu Mushrefova and Nida Hamilton are ranked No. 15 in doubles.

TCU Holds Off No. 30 Arizona Women, 4-3 (TCU recap/box)

Senior Kelsey Sundaram clinched the match with a three-set win

FORT WORTH – TCU’s women’s tennis team rolled in doubles and held off an Arizona rally in singles to drop the Wildcats, 4-3, on Friday afternoon at the indoor facility of the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center.

The 28th-ranked Horned Frogs improved to 6-1 on the year with their third-straight win. Arizona, ranked 30th, slipped to 6-4 on the year. It was TCU’s first win in six tries all-time against Arizona.

“I guess I can call them the cardiac kids,” TCU coach Dave Borelli said. “The key is the doubles. We’re playing great doubles and that was the difference again today. I’m really proud of Kelsey. She used to play that way at Arkansas and pull that kind of stuff off. It’s good to see the magic come back.”

For the second-straight match, TCU needed third-set heroics in the deciding match to claim the win. This time it was senior Kelsey Sundaram who provided the clinching point at No. 6 singles, following the lead of senior Olivia Smith, who did the same last Sunday.

After claiming the first set 6-3, Sundaram dropped set two, before rolling through the third at 6-1 while battling lower leg cramps. The Chennai, India, native bettered Arizona’s Inge Hendrikx in the match.

In doubles, TCU was dominant once again, claiming all three matches. The No. 3 duo of Gabi Barbosa and Simona Parajova was first to win, knocking of Akilah James and Susan McRann, 8-2.

TCU’s top tandem of Millie Nichols and Smith gave TCU a 1-0 lead when they took care Shayne Austin and Lacey Smyth, 8-2, for their sixth-straight win. Sundaram and Federica Denti added an 8-5 triumph over Hendrikx and Kim Stubbe at No. 2.

As singles got underway, the Wildcats grabbed a 2-1 lead with straight-set wins at Nos. 1 and 5 singles. Smith, who ran her season mark to 6-0, evened the score at 2 with her 6-2, 6-4 dismissal of Stubbe at No. 2 singles.

Denti made it 3-2 in favor of the home team when she gutted out a 6-0, 7-6 (7) win over Stubbe at No. 4 singles. Arizona added a win at No. 3 singles to tie the match at 3 before Sundaram clinched TCU’s win.

TCU returns to action Feb. 27 when it travels to North Texas. First serve is set for 2 p.m. in Denton, which will be TCU’s first road match of the season.
