Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University women’s tennis team defeated Belmont, 4-3, to earn its season’s first win, Friday, at the Governors Indoor Tennis Center.The Lady Govs won the doubles point and took the top three singles matches to pick up the win. Perhaps the Lady Govs’ biggest challenge through the early part of the season was determining combinations on the doubles side. In fact, Friday’s win also marked the first doubles point win through eight matches.
Vanja Tomic and Alison Carre handled No. 1 doubles with a decisive 8-4 victory. After dropping No. 3 doubles, the point rested on the No. 2 doubles outcome. Andra Cornea and Ornella DiSalvo came through, earning an 8-3 win
In singles, the match played true as the Lady Govs dominated the top three matches. Tomic blanked Belmont’s Fabiana Mersan at No. 1 while Carre moved down to No. 3 singles to pick up her season’s first win.
DiSalvo, who moved up to play No. 2 singles, allowed only three games in the first set to Belmont’s Nikki Maciel with her match proving to be the game winner for the Lady Govs.
Austin Peay returns to action, Saturday, when the Govs and Lady Govs host Lipscomb. In fact, prior to the match Austin Peay is hosting a free tennis clinic beginning at 9:00am, open to all kids interested in playing tennis.
