Clemson Notes:

– The Tigers (8-9, 1-5 ACC) have had a one-week break from competition, after defeating Yale 4-0 and falling to No. 25 UCF 4-3 in a double header at the USTA National Campus in Lake Nona, Fla. on Wednesday, March 21.

– Against Yale, Clemson won the doubles point, and Laura Marti, Daniela Ruiz and Fernanda Navarro won their singles matches to clinch the victory. Against UCF, the Tigers again won the doubles point, and Navarro and Marie-Alexandre Leduc picked up singles victories.

– Clemson has won the doubles point in 11 of its 17 matches on the season. The Tigers have a 7-4 record in those 11 matches.

– Junior Marie-Alexandre Leduc is ranked 21st in the nation in singles. She has a 16-7 overall record, and a 7-4 record in dual matches. She has played all 11 of her dual matches at No. 1 singles, and has seven wins over nationally-ranked opponents on the season.

– Leduc and fellow junior Fernanda Navarro are ranked 34th nationally in doubles. The pair is 17-5 overall, 9-2 in dual matches and 4-0 in ACC dual matches, and has currently won seven matches in a row.

– Leduc and Navarro moved up 26 spots from the March 6 doubles poll, when they entered the rankings for the first time at No. 60.

– Navarro was named ACC Player of the Week on Feb. 20, for her performances the week of Feb. 12-18. She was undefeated in singles and doubles play in two matches, and she clinched the Tigers’ 4-3 upset over 11th-ranked Wake Forest on Feb. 18.

– Senior Daniela Ruiz was named a recipient of the ACC’s Weaver-James-Corrigan Postgraduate Scholarship as announced by the conference office on Feb. 28.
