FLUSHING MEADOWS, N.Y. - The University of Houston women's tennis team returned from a nine-day break to post a dominating 7-0 shutout of Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon at the home of the U.S. Open, the Billie Jean King U.S. National Tennis Center.

With Tuesday's win, the Cougars improved to 10-4 overall this season and 5-2 in road matches.

"Every young kid dreams of playing at the U.S. Open, so getting to spend a couple of days in New York City and playing this match at the national tennis center was a huge treat for us," head coach Patrick Sullivan said. "We sat our top two out to give everyone a chance to move up a couple of spots in the lineup and everyone responded with strong performances. Taking care of business was important today because we turn right back around and play a tough Rutgers team tomorrow. I expect a closely-contested match."

The Cougars set the tone for the match from the onset, as the Houston duo of Jo Garvey and Dionne Sanders cruised past Manhattan's Tsao and Maffei, 8-1, at the No. 2 spot and Maja Kazimieruk and Gabriella Jansson followed with an 8-2 defeat of Rosello and Clark to clinch the point. Rocio Martin Fernandez and Charlotte Phillips rounded out the doubles round with an 8-3 rout of Johnson and Turano at the top spot.

Dionne Sanders opened singles action in the same fashion, blanking Alyssa Rosello at the No. 5 position, 6-0, 6-0, and Phillips followed up with a 6-0, 6-1 trouncing of Stephanie Tsao at the No. 3 spot to put Houston up 3-0 in the match.

 

 

Garvey clinched the victory for the Cougars, prevailing over Alyssa Rosello at the No. 4 position by a score of 6-1, 6-2, while Kazimieruk rebounded from a 6-1 first-set loss to outscore Brianna Turano 12-1 over the remaining two sets to improve to 12-2 this season.

Martin Fernandez saw her first collegiate action at the top position, posting a 6-2, 6-2 defeat of Lilli Johnson to increase her spring record to 10-3, and Jansson rounded out the scoring at the No. 6 spot with a 6-4, 7-5 victory over Megan Maffei.

The Cougars return to action at noon on Wednesday against Rutgers in Piscataway, N.J.
