Road losses for Crimson Tide women's tennis

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – Three members of the Alabama women's tennis team took part in a pair of matches Thursday at the 2010 Riviera/ITA All-American Championships with junior Taylor Lindsey and freshman Alex Clay in doubles and junior Courtney McLane in singles. Both matches resulted in losses for the Crimson Tide.

"We are definitely finding ourselves in a lot of close matches right now," Alabama assistant coach Rahim Esmail said. "The next step is finding a way to win those matches. I think we are doing a lot of the right things, but we need to convert on those key plays to get to the next level."

Clay and Lindsey took on the Georgia Tech team of senior Sasha Krupina and junior Caroline Lilley in the main draw round of 32 where the Yellow Jacket team won 8-5. Clay and Lindsey will now move to the consolation draw where they will play Kentucky freshman Khristina Blajkevitch and senior Megan Broderick of Kentucky at 12:45 p.m. CT.

McLane took on Mississippi senior Connor Vogel in the consolation singles draw where the Rebel netter came out on top 6-4, 6-3

McLane and sophomore Alexa Guarachi, the tournament's No. 2 seed, sat out the first day of play with a bye. The Tide duo will take on Duke senior Ellah Nze and senior Nadine Fahoum, a team that advanced out of the qualifying draw, Friday at 11 a.m. CT.

 

RESULTS

Connor Vogel (UM) def. Courtney McLane (UA) 6-4, 6-3

Krupina/Liley (GT) def. Clay/Lindsey (UA) 8-5
