2010-11 Singles Results

2010-11 Doubles Results

PHILADELPHIA - After its first home loss of the season, women's tennis will look to return to its winning ways when it resumes action on Saturday afternoon in the Levy Pavilion. The Quakers (4-3) will square off with Stony Brook, who is currently 3-1 coming into the weekend. Prior to the Saturday match against Penn, Stony Brook will be in town on Friday to do battle with Saint Joseph's. Stony Brook has picked up victories against Fairfield, Army, and Connecticut to date. Their only loss has come to another Ivy League team, Columbia, who defeated the Seawolves 5-2 earlier this month.

Penn comes into the contest on Saturday having won three of its last five matches. Both of the Quakers losses came in narrow defeats, where one more victory could have swung either match in Penn's favor. In their last time out, Penn jumped out to the early lead after taking the doubles point against Richmond; however, Penn would only win two more singles matches to end the day on the wrong side of the 4-3 decision. Despite the team's setback, a pair of Quakers would hit personal milestones during this match.

Connie Hsu picked up her 30th victory on the season with her win at number one singles. In the latest ITA Rankings which were released earlier this week, Hsu was ranked 15th in the country. Jaime Yapp-Shing also picked up her 10th win of the season with a come from behind victory at number three. She is currently 5-1 in the spring season.

In doubles action, Emily Wolf maintained her perfect marks, teaming up with Jules Rodin to take the number three doubles win. The team of Wolf and Rodin is currently 2-0 in spring doubles. Wolf also has another doubles victory with Stephanie Do earlier in the year. Wolf, who did not compete against Richmond in singles, is also 2-0 in singles play. The top pairing of Hsu and Alexa Ely also won their third match together in doubles action this spring. Both Hsu and Ely have also won a doubles match with Yapp-Shing during the spring season. Overall, the Quakers are 10-5 in doubles matches during the spring.

Stony Brook comes into the weekend after defeating Connecticut 6-1 its last time on the courts. The Seawolves dropped the doubles point, but won all six singles matches on the way to victory. Stony Brook and Penn have not met in recent years. The Seawolves and Quakers have met up just once in individual matchups during the fall season, so these two teams will come in as relative unknowns to one another.

The match with Stony Brook will begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday. The women's match will run concurrent with the men, who are also hosting Stony Brook. This match will be the fourth of six consecutive home matches for the Quakers. After this Saturday, the Quakers will be in action on Friday, February 25 against Saint Joseph's. This match is a rescheduling of the previous date that was postponed due to inclement weather. A win this weekend would give the Quakers more team victories than they had a year ago.
