@CanesWTennis Posts 12-3 Mark to Cap Miami Invite

CORAL GABLES, Fla. Despite wet courts delaying the start of the final day at the Miami Fall Invite, the University of Miami women’s tennis team notched a 12-3 record at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center Sunday, including a 10-1 mark in singles.

Overall, the Hurricanes went 24-7 during the three-day event, with a 16-3 ledger in singles and an 8-4 record in doubles.

“It was fun to get all of the girls together out here on the courts competing at one time,” Miami head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews said of the weekend. “I’m really happy with our freshmen and our transfer . . . The level of maturity that they are showing is exactly what we need. Their responses to errors, to success, and just in general, make them appear so much older than their ages reflect.”

Redshirt sophomore Yolimar Ogando, ranked No. 32, began the morning by completing her win over No. 122 Audrey Ann Blakely of Pittsburgh, 6-1, 6-4, in the weekend’s lone ranked showdown. Junior Sinead Lohan, ranked fifth, topped Pittsburgh’s Amber Washington, 6-4, 6-2.

Freshman Dominika Paterova dropped her match to Gabriela Rezende of Pittsburgh, 2-6, 3-6. No. 117 Ana Madcur then earned a stellar 6-0, 6-1 win against Pittsburgh’s Natsumi Okamoto.

Junior Silvia Fuentes took down Clara Lucas, 6-1, 6-4, before redshirt senior Maci Epstein took a straight-set victory over Lolade Ogungbesan, 6-3, 6-4.

Against Florida Atlantic’s Heather Walton, Clara Tanielian earned a, 6-0, 6-1, victory to close out the morning session of singles.

After trailing early in doubles play, Lohan and Peterova teamed up to complete the comeback against Pittsburgh’s Audrey Ann Blakely and Lolade Ogungbesan, 7-5. Meanwhile, Madcur and Tanielian topped Alisa Rudenko and Heather Walton of Florida Atlantic, 6-3.

Against Pittsbrugh’s Callie Frey and Amber Washington, Epstein and freshman Estela Perez-Somarriba dropped the match, 4-6. Fuentes and Ogando fell to Clara Lucas and Gabriela Rezende of Pittsburgh, 3-6.

After going 2-2 in doubles, the Hurricanes played singles matches against Florida Atlantic in impressive fashion, winning all four matches in straight sets.

Madcur returned to the court by defeating Lyndsey Boos, 6-2, 6-3. Perez-Somarriba took down Laura Fabrizi, 6-1, 6-2, while Paterova bounced back from her morning defeat to beat Bianca Biglione, 6-0, 6-3.

Epstein wrapped up the Hurricanes’ play in the Miami Fall invite by picking up a 6-0, 6-1 win over Naiya Oden.

Miami will be back on the court Sept. 30-Oct. 1 when select players head to Tampa, Fla., for the Bedford Cup.
