Tigers Sweep Georgia Southern for 4-0 Start

CLEMSON, S.C. —  The Tigers (4-0, 0-0 ACC) played a clean match from the start to finish as they secured the doubles point and continued rolling in singles as Clemson won all six matches to beat Georgia Southern (0-1, 0-0 Sun Belt) as the Tigers earned their fourth straight win.

Ali DeSpain and Eleni Louka continued to impress as a doubles team on Court 1 by taking the 6-1 win right before Sophia Hatton and Samantha Buyckx solidified the doubles point for Clemson by winning 6-2 on Court 3. 

Daniella Medvedeva won big on Court 3, sweeping Georgia Southern’s Hijos, 6-0, 6-0. Shortly after, Jenna Thompson, Ali DeSpain and Samantha Buyckx won on Court 4, 5 and 6, respectively. Sophomore Cristina Mayorova battled to a win on Court 2, securing the win in a tiebreak, 10-7. Eleni Louka also went to a tiebreak on Court 1 and dominated, 10-2 to help the Tigers to a 7-0 win. 

“I was really proud of how the girls competed today!” said Head Coach Christy Lynch. “Georgia Southern has some good players as they won their Conference title last year. I thought our girls came out ready for a battle. Both Jenna and Dani really played dominate and disciplined in singles. It was great to see Cristina and Eleni pull through at the end of their matches playing very well!”
