Women's Tennis Outlasts Penn in Ivy Opener, 5-2

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Brown women's tennis team opened Ivy League play with a resounding 5-2 victory over Penn at the Pizzitola Sports Center Friday afternoon.  The Bears improve to 12-5 (1-0 Ivy) while Penn drops to 7-6 (0-2 Ivy).

 

After relinquishing the doubles point on Friday, Brown rebounded to dominate singles play, claiming 5-of-6 matches over the Quakers.  Dayna Lord (Bloomfield, Conn.) outlasted Penn's Augustina Eskenazi, 6-2, 4-6, 6-1 in the No. 1 singles match while Hannah Camhi (Woodbury, N.Y.) followed suit, cruising past Kana Daniel, 6-0, 6-2.

 

Nikita Uberoi (Boca Raton, Fla.) was taken to the limit by Penn's Sonia Latycheva before ultimately surviving, 7-6 (6), 3-6, 7-6 (5) in the tightly contested No. 3 singles match.  Brown closed out the match with Ammu Mandalap's (Princeton Junction, N.J.) 7-6 (4), 2-6, 10-6 win over Stephanie Do and Ashley Noyes' (Marblehead, Mass.) 6-1, 6-1, straight sets win over Alexandra Ion.
