ORLANDO – The Houston Cougar Women’s Tennis team fell 4-0 to UCF in the First Round of the 2017 American Athletic Conference Championship on Wednesday.

HOW IT HAPPENED
Houston was forced to open play with a forfeit at the No. 3 doubles position due to injuries to freshmen Tsveta Dimitrova and Cristina Rovira. UCF clinched the doubles point with a 6-3 victory for Cortney Cesarini and Monica Matias over junior Sveva Mazzari and freshman Lauren Alter at the No. 1 doubles position.

The team of freshman Constandena Nicolaou and junior Ana Glumac led Emilia Granstom and Natalia Serrano 4-3 when doubles play was halted.

Singles play also began with the Cougars forfeiting at the No. 5 and No. 6 singles positions due to Dimitrova’s and Rovira’s injuries. The Knights wrapped the overall match with a victory from Cesarini over Nicolaou at the No. 4 singles position. Cesarini won in straight-sets 6-2, 6-1.

When play was halted, Alter and Serrano were set to begin the third set at the No. 2 singles position in a match where Alter took the first set 6-1, before Serrano answered with a 6-3 win in set two. At the No. 3 singles position, Glumac and Granstrom were even at 6-6 in the first set, while Mazzari trailed Matias at the No. 1 position 6-0, 5-5.
