Women's Tennis Closes ITA Kick-Off Weekend With 4-0 Win Over St. Mary's

PALO ALTO, Calif. (SMU) – SMU women's tennis won its first dual match of the season, cruising past St. Mary's 4-0 to close out the ITA Kick-Off Weekend at Stanford's Taube Family Tennis Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Mustangs snapped a three-match losing streak to improve to 1-3 on the year. All three losses were by a score of 4-3. The Gaels fell to 0-2 with the loss.

For the second day in a row, junior Tiffany Hollebeck and senior Karina Traxler notched the first win of the match. The duo defeated Hind Abdelouahid and Liesl Pieters 6-1 at the No. 3 position for their sixth straight win. Hollebeck and Traxler are a team-best 7-1 as a pair this season, and Traxler has individually been a part of a team-high 13 doubles wins.

Seniors Liza Buss and Anzhelika Shapovalova secured the doubles point by defeating Clementine Clement and Chloe Goyette 6-2 at the No. 1 position.

Traxler, Buss and Shapovalova then won their singles matches to complete a 4-0 win. Buss defeated No. 62 Mariia Kozyreva at the No. 1 position in straight sets, 6-2, 7-5. This was her third win over a ranked opponent this season. Traxler was the first Mustang to finish her singles match, beating Pieters 6-4, 6-2 at the No. 5 position.
