McAdoo, Renaud Open NCAA Singles Play

ATHENS, Ga. – Senior Rasheeda McAdoo and junior Johnnise Renaud opened NCAA singles play on Wednesday in the first round of action. The NCAA Singles Championship is being played at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Ga.

SINGLES PLAY: Impacted by several weather delays, No. 48 McAdoo took to the courts first against Vanderbilt’s Sydney Campbell. After No. 15 Campbell took the first set 6-2, the match was suspended due to rain and eventually moved indoors. Campbell took the match with a 6-3 second set win.

Delayed nearly four hours due to weather, Renaud, ranked No. 36, and Stanford’s Melissa Lord got on the courts around 8:30 p.m. After breaking No. 28 Lord to go up 4-2 in the first set, Renaud held serve to take a commanding 5-2 lead. The junior broke serve again to take the first set, 6-2. On serve at 1-1 in the second set, Lord went up a break with a 2-1 advantage. After three straight service breaks, Lord held a 3-2 advantage and held serve to go up 4-2 and took the set 6-4. Lord rolled to a 6-0 third set win to take the match.

UP NEXT: First round doubles action gets underway on Thursday. Renaud/McAdoo will open play at 5 p.m. against Kentucky’s Mami Adachi/Aldila Sutjiadi and the Tech duo of Paige Hourigan/Kenya Jones take on Florida’s Anna Danilina/Ingrid Neel at 6 p.m.
