Bama's Guarachi falls in qualifying draw at All-American Championships

Crimson Tide sophomore bows out in round of 32, now eyes doubles main draw as the No. 2 seed 

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – Action continued for the Alabama women's tennis team at the 2010 Riviera/ITA All-American Championships Wednesday where sophomore Alexa Guarachi dropped a 6-3, 6-3 decision to NC State junior Sandhya Nagaraj. 

"Alexa had a tough match today," Alabama Assistant Coach Rahim Esmail said. "Her opponent was a tough player and very solid all-around. Alexa would have had to play some of her best tennis to win that match. We now have our sights set on the doubles main draw matches and are ready to come out fresh tomorrow morning." 

Once again rain affected match play at the Riviera Tennis Club, therefore all consolation matches were called off preventing junior Courtney McLane and freshman Alex Clay from picking up a second singles match at the tournament. 

Main draw doubles action is slated to begin Thursday morning at 11 a.m. CT. Guarachi and McLane, the No. 2 overall seed, will have a bye in the round of 32 and will take on either Georgia junior Nadja Gilchrist and freshman Lilly Kimbell or Yale junior Vicky Brook and senior Lindsay Clark in the round of 16. Clay and junior Taylor Lindsey will face the Georgia Tech duo of senior Sasha Krupina and junior Caroline Lilley, who came out of the qualifying draw. 

RESULTS

Sandhya Nagaraj (NCSU) def. Alexa Guarachi (UA) 6-3, 6-3
