W. Tennis Sweeps No. 19 Wake Forest, 7-0 – University of Miami Athletics

CORAL GABLES, Fla. In a top-20 showdown, the University of Miami women’s tennis team logged a resounding 7-0 victory Sunday afternoon against No. 19 Wake Forest at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.

After earning the doubles point and taking a 2-0 lead via walkover, No. 18 Miami (9-2, 4-1 ACC) dropped just seven games across five singles matches in a dominant performance from start to finish.

“We’ve been talking a lot about just discipline, composure, defining our tennis, playing our style. I think we did a great job of it today,” Miami head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews said. “I think we played with discipline. I think we played with composure. [Daevenia Achong] was stepping up, driving balls [and we played] just played fearless tennis on all the courts from beginning to end.

“When you get a team that is used to different conditions and you get them down here and the balls get a little heavy and you play this type of tennis, some teams will go away.” Yaroshuk-Tews added. “Some teams won’t, but some teams will. And I think it’s a credit to use because we get them there to that point. I’m happy with the girls, happy with their result.”

The Hurricanes jumped out to leads on all three doubles courts and went on to take both completed matches. First, fifth-year senior Daevenia Achong and fourth-year junior Maya Tahan registered a 6-3 victory over Mia Ahmad and Casie Wooten, 6-3.

Redshirt sophomore Alexa Noel and junior Isabella Pfennig then clinched the opening point with a 6-4 triumph over Anna Brylin and Jingyi Li.

In the lone unfinished match, junior Audrey Boch-Collins and freshman Mia Mack faced a 5-5 deadlock with Nevena Carton and Whitley Pate.

Miami upped its lead to 2-0 before singles play started, as Wake Forest (11-7, 2-3 ACC) only had five players in its lineup, giving Tahan a walkover victory.

Pfennig cruised to a 6-1, 6-0 triumph against Pate, quickly extending the Hurricanes’ advantage to 3-0.

Miami earned its next three points in the span of just two minutes, with Achong sealing her win first to clinch the overall match. The Geleen, Netherlands, native topped Carton, 6-1, 6-1.

Boch-Collins followed that seconds later by finishing off a 6-1, 6-0 defeat of Maddie Lynch. In a top-40 showdown, No. 13 Noel rolled past No. 38 Wooten, 6-0, 6-1, to make it 6-0. It marked her second top-40, straight-set triumph of the weekend.

In the final match of the day, Mack defeated Li, 6-2, 6-0, to…
