Stanford Drops Davis - Stanford University Athletics

STANFORD, Calif. – No. 2 Stanford opened the home portion of its spring schedule with a 7-0 rout of UC Davis on Thursday at Taube Family Tennis Center.

The match was originally scheduled for Saturday, but moved up due to inclement weather in the forecast. The Cardinal moved to 3-0 with the result, which was its seventh consecutive 7-0 scoreline against UC Davis.

Stanford secured the doubles point, with each court finishing in numerical order. Connie Ma and Alexandra Yepifanova won on court one, 6-2, while Alexis Blokhina and Valencia Xu did the same shortly after by the same score on court two. Ana Geller and India Houghton finished it out with a 6-4 win on court three.

The Cardinal rolled in singles, which opened with freshman Eleana Yu making her dual debut with a 6-0, 6-1 victory on court five. Connie Ma followed with a 6-1, 6-0 win on court two and India Houghton clinched with another 6-0, 6-1 win on court six.

The remaining matches played out and featured victories by Valencia Xu on court four (6-0, 6-2), Alexandra Yepifanova on court one (6-2, 6-4) and Alexis Blokhina on court three (6-2, 2-6, 10-3).

The Cardinal is back in action at home next weekend when it hosts ITA Kickoff Weekend. Stanford opens with Colorado on Friday, Jan. 26.
