Yale Falls 7-0

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Yale women's tennis team fell 7-0 to a strong Wake Forest squad on Friday at the Cullman-Heyman Tennis Center. Despite the loss, the Bulldogs showed grit in hard-fought matches, as a couple players pushed their opponents to the super tiebreak.

At No. 1 singles, junior Carol Finke lost the first set 6-4 to No. 33 Kimmy Guerin before coming back to win the second in the tiebreak 7-6(3). Although Finke kept up with Guerin throughout much of the super tiebreak, Guerin narrowly won the match 6-4, 6-7(3), 10-7. At No. 5 singles, senior Caroline Lynch also charged back from a first-set loss but was ultimately defeated 6-1, 4-6, 10-6 by Samantha Asch.

The Bulldogs will hope to bounce back from their loss in the upcoming match against St. John's. Playing at home, Yale will take the courts on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.
