Tigers Host Cal Poly In First Home Match Of Year

STOCKTON, Calif. - After four road matches, the Pacific Tigers return home for their first match at the Eve Zimmerman Tennis Center this season, taking on Cal Poly this Sunday at noon.  It will start a stretch that sees Pacific play four of their next five matches at home.

Last week, the Tigers went 1-1 on their road trip to Colorado Springs, picking up a big 6-1 win over Incarnate Word before falling to host Air Force 6-1.  Pacific sits at 2-2 in the young season.

Maayan Sela won both her singles matches playing as Pacific's number one this week.  Sela took down Incarnate Word's Matea Zemunik 6-4, 7-5, then beat Air Force's Chloe Forlini 7-6, 6-3 for the perfect weekend.

Against Incarnate Word, the Tigers were perfect in singles, winning all six matches without losing a single set.  Anneroos Nederstigt, Anna Ramos Vinolas, Sabrina Rodriguez, and Cristina Saenz de Buruaga Ruiz all won their matches in two sets, while Yuki Asami picked up the win by default.

Last year, the Tigers defeated Cal Poly 4-0, picking up the doubles point then winning the match on the strength of singles wins from Viktoriya Dzyuba, Maayan Sela, and Katie Dyson.  A win this weekend would make it three years in a row that Pacific has defeated Cal Poly.  The Tigers have not lost a point to Cal Poly since 2014, when they lost 4-3 on the road.
