TUCSON, Ariz. ?- No. 36 Arizona struggled against No. 22 Arizona State falling today, 6-1, at the LaNelle Robson Tennis Center.  The Wildcats (8-8, 2-0) were only able to pick up one win and it came with the match already being decided.  The Sun Devils (9-6, 2-0) took the doubles and point and the first five singles point to win the match easily.

 

The bright spot on the day for Arizona was sophomore Danielle Steinberg’s upset win on court one over No. 63 Sabrina Capannolo.  Steinberg and Capannolo battled for over an hour in the first set with Steinberg getting the win in a tiebreaker, 7-6(2).  In the second set, Steinberg took control and won easily, 6-2.  Junior Juliette Mavroleon almost had an upset of her own in the No. 2 spot.  Mavroleon took an early one set lead over No. 29 Nadia Abdala with a decisive 6-1 win.  Abdala was able to come back in the next two sets and regain momentum, winning 6-1, 6-2.

 

Next up, Arizona will head to northern California to face Stanford and California in Pac-10 play.  The Wildcats will face the Cardinal at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, March 30, and will take on the Golden Bears at noon on Saturday, March 31.
