TCU Drops Match to Stanford

Feb. 16, 2018

Final Stats

FORT WORTH, Texas – A battle in Austin did not turn out in the TCU women’s tennis team’s favor as the Horned Frogs dropped a 4-0 decision to No. 6 Stanford on Friday afternoon at the Texas Tennis Center.

After the Cardinal (3-1) quickly picked up a win at the top spot in doubles, the Frogs (6-4) continued to battle on the other two courts. TCU could not overcome the momentum Stanford was riding as they finished off court two to take the doubles point and the early 1-0 lead.

TCU tried to regain control of the match during singles action, but Stanford was able to get straight-set victories on courts one, four and five to finish off the match with a 4-0 win.

Quotes from the Match
Head Coach Lee Taylor Walker
“We got a slow start in doubles and almost fought our way back into that point, but it just was a little too late. I am proud of the girls for keeping their poise and staying in those matches at two and three doubles. For singles, we had the opposite. We got out to some great starts and when Stanford responded we were a little shocked and didn't close out well. Overall, I'm happy with the experience we have gotten so far this season. To be at February 16 and have already played three top-10 opponents is great for our team and will pay off down the road, if we can keep learning and growing."
