CLEMSON, S.C. – The No. 37 Clemson women’s tennis team (15-10, 3-9 ACC) fell at home on Friday to No. 13 Miami by a score of 7-0. The Tigers came within just a few points of securing the doubles point and were unable to rally for enough singles wins to claim victory. It was the Tigers’ first 7-0 loss of the season.
Dani Medvedeva and Cristina Mayorova won their doubles match over the No. 31 pair in the country on Court 2, leaving the result on Court 1 to decide the doubles point. Despite grabbing a 5-4 lead, the Tigers dropped the match 7-5 and entered singles play down 1-0.
Miami won the singles matches on Courts 5, 3 and 1 to secure the victory with a 4-0 lead, but the remaining matches would be played out.
Alexandra Anttila dropped her first match of the season to fall to 6-1 by a score of 2-6, 6-2, 0-6. Medvedeva and Mayorova both fell in two sets to complete the match.
“Team 48 continues to fight and now it’s time to step up & push back,” said Head Coach Amy Sargeant. “We haven’t come this far just to come this far.”
Up next, the Tigers will host Senior Day on Sunday at Duckworth Family Tennis Facility when they take on No. 33 Florida State. The team will honor seniors Eleni Louka and Lana Sipek prior to the match beginning at 11:30 a.m.
