Box Score

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Old Dominion women's tennis team (1-2) fell to No. 8 nationally ranked Florida State (2-0) by a 5-2 score at the Scott Speicher Memorial Tennis Center on Saturday afternoon.
"It was a good match today, I thought we fought hard at all of the spots, it just didn't go our way," said ODU coach Dominic Manilla. "I think the players on our team are here to win these types of matches and we have another one coming up on Monday at UCF."
In doubles, ODU's No. 8 nationally ranked duo Yulia Starodubtseva/Alesya Yakubovich took down No. 7 Petra Hule/Victoria Allen (6-2).
In singles, Tatsiana Sasnouskaya picked up a straight set victory over Emmanuelle Salas (6-3, 7-6). Also picking up a win for Old Dominion was Yulia Starodubtseva, who defeated Petra Hule (5-7, 6-4, 10-1).
Earlier this week, ODU was one of five teams (Kansas, LSU, Michigan and Texas A&M) to receive votes in the ITA's most recent Top 25 national rankings.
Old Dominion will be back in action on Monday, Feb. 1, when the Monarchs take on No. 22 nationally ranked UCF in Orlando, Fla. at 12:00 p.m. EST.
