Despite a perfect 2-0 day from Kailey Evans, Tech fell 4-2
LAWARENCE, Kan. – Despite winning the doubles point and a straight-set victory from Kailey Evans, the 41st-ranked Texas Tech women’s tennis program fell 4-2 to No. 34 Kansas Sunday afternoon at the Jayhawk Tennis Center.
Tech (9-7, 1-3 Big 12) got off to a fast start, winning two of the three doubles matches. Cristina Tiglea and Margarita Skriabina earned a clutch 6-4 victory on court two, before Avelina Sayfetdinova and Kailey Evans sealed the point with a 7-5 victory on court one.
In singles action, Evans was again clutch for Tech, winning a second-set tiebreaker to seal a 6-4, 7-6 victory on court five. After dropping the opening set 4-6, Skriabina rebounded to win the second set 6-2, before the match was called midway through the third set.
With the setback, Texas Tech saw its two match win-streak snapped.
Texas Tech returns home to the McLeod Tennis Complex for the first time since Feb. 19 on Wednesday afternoon when SMU visits Lubbock. First serve is set for 4 p.m.
Tech defeated the Mustangs once already this season, a 4-2 victory back on Mar. 6.
