Feb. 12, 2010
HOUSTON--The Arizona women's tennis team suffered their first loss of the season Friday, in a 5-2 decision to Rice University.
In singles, Landsman defeated Julie Chao 1-6, 6-4, 6-2 in the No. 2 position. The Wildcats' other win in doubles came in the No. 4 position with freshman Alexandrina Naydenova defeating Ana Guzman 7-6(4), 1-6, 6-4.
'Rice played a tough match today.' Said head coach Vicky Maes, 'They were aggressive in the doubles and very consistent in all the singles. I feel we didn't play our best tennis but that happens. We are ready to redeem ourselves tomorrow against Texas Tech and I have full confidence we will put ourselves in a position to win.'
Up next, the Wildcats will take on Texas Tech on Saturday, February 13 at 11am.
