ARLINGTON- Georgia State women’s tennis dropped a tight 4-3 match to UT Arlington Tuesday afternoon. The Panthers won three of the four singles matches played, but it was not enough to overcome an early 2-0 deficit.
GSU, playing with a limited lineup had to forfeit the number six singles by walkover, and was unable to produce a number three doubles pairing. Number two doubles pair Damira Muminović and Kristin Rehse lead 5-4 on court two, but the Mavericks were able to clinch a 6-2 win on court one to take the first point of the afternoon.
Kristin Rehse wasted no time getting the Panthers back in the match, earning a 6-1, 6-0 win on singles court one. The win was the senior’s ninth in the number one flight on the season and boosted her overall record to 11-4 on the year.
GSU would even up the match at 2-2 behind a 6-2, 6-2 win from Elizabet Danailova. The true freshman improved to 5-3 in the number two position and has won her last three singles matches.
Daniela Ramirez came back from an early deficit to win her first set 7-6 in a tiebreak. With State trailing 3-2 in the match, Ramirez turned in a 6-3 set two win to give the Panthers singles wins on courts one, two, and three.
UT Arlington would win in straight sets on court five and take a three-set win on court four to clinch the match by a 4-3 margin. The win propels the Mavericks to 5-3 on the season, as GSU drops to 7-9.
The defeat lands the Panthers at 1-2 on the team’s Spring Break trip to Texas with one match remaining. GSU will travel to Denton to take on North Texas later this week.
