May 21, 2002

STANFORD, CA – Clemson women’s tennis freshman Alix Lacelarie advanced to the second round of the NCAA Women’s Tennis Singles Championships where she will face UCLA’s Megan Bradley on Tuesday evening. Lacelarie defeated California’s Christina Fusano in the rain-delayed first round by a score of 7-5, 1-6, 6-3. Lacelarie was initially slated to play Georgia’s Mariel Verban, but the draw was modified prior to Tuesday’s match.

Lacelarie, a native of Villeneuve-Les-Beziers, France, was the Tigers’ top seed in 2002. With the win, she improves her overall singles record of 27-12. During the regular season, she posted a 26-12 overall record and was 6-2 in the ACC at the number one singles flight. Also during the regular season, Lacelarie defeated six ranked singles players, and lost to two top-10 ranked players in three sets. She posted an 11-match consecutive singles winning streak from Mar. 9-Apr. 12, defeating four ranked players during that time.
