TOP 25 W
After dropping the doubles point, Oregon came storming back with four singles victories to pick up a win over No. 25 Arizona State on Sunday at home. The Ducks picked up their first ranked win of the season and first Pac-12 victory, beating the Sun Devils for the first time since 2018. Freshman Sophie Luescher provided the clinching victory, winning in three sets after erasing a 3-0 deficit in the deciding set.

FRESHMAN PHENOMS
The true freshman duo of Sophie Luescher and Karin Young have made a huge impact in their first collegiate seasons. Luescher has spent the entire dual season at the No. 1 spot and is 8-5 in singles play during the dual season. Young joined the team in January and is 11-1, highlighted by a current streak of 10 straight singles victories. 

PROTECTING HOME COURT
Oregon has taken care of business at home over the past three seasons, holding a 23-5 record at the Student Tennis Center since the 2020 season. The Ducks have not lost more than two matches at home in each of the last three seasons and are 20-2 in matches played indoors at home over that span. UO has won its last 15 matches played inside the STC, at streak that dates back to the season finale of the 2020 COVID-shortened season. 

DOUBLES IS THE KEY
Getting off to a good start has been important for Oregon throughout the first half of the season. The Ducks are 8-1 when winning the opening point and 1-4 when falling in doubles. UO won each of the first eight times it took the opening point this season before falling at Cal after winning doubles. The Ducks then won despite dropping the doubles point for the first time this past Sunday vs. Arizona State. Oregon has also mixed and matched its doubles lineup, using 12 different pairs during the dual season.
