LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Behind the doubles point and three singles victories, No. 32 Georgia Tech topped Louisville, 4-0, Sunday morning at the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center. Tech moved to 6-6 overall and 3-2 in the league play with the win.

DOUBLES ACTION: For the fifth time this season, the Jackets took a 1-0 match lead claiming the doubles point. Georgia Tech’s Kenya Jones and Nadia Gizdova raced out with a 3-0 lead over Aleksandra Mally and Nikolina Jovic on court three before the Cardinals got on the scoreboard at 4-2. Tech closed out the match with a 6-2 victory to give the Jackets the early advantage in doubles. Louisville quickly evened the doubles field winning on court two. Raven Neely and Dinana Wong opened with a 2-0 edge over Nami Otsuka and Gia Cohen and built their lead to 4-1. Tech rallied, winning three of the next five games, but fell 6-4, leaving the doubles point to be decided on court one.

Falling into an early deficit on court one, Tech’s Victoria Flores and Valeriya Deminova trailed Sena Suswam/Dina Chaia, 3-2. But the Jackets fought back, taking the match 7-6 (7-4) to clinch the doubles point for Tech.

SINGLES ACTION: Jones handed Tech a 2-0 lead capturing her 20th singles win this season. The junior collected a straight-set victory over Sena Suswam on court one, dominating the first set, 6-0. Tied 2-all in the second set, Suswam looked on track to split sets, taking a 5-3 lead, but Jones won the next four games to take the set, 7-5, and pocket the victory. Gizdova cushioned Tech’s lead, pocketing a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Diana Wong on court six, securing a 3-0 lead for the Jackets.

Cohen clinched the match for Tech from the five seed, collecting a three-set win over Chloe Hamlin. The freshman took a 5-2 lead in the first set, but Hamlin fought back to within one game before Cohen won the set 7-5. Hamlin split sets, winning the second set in a tiebreak, before Cohen took control of the third set, cruising to a 6-0 victory to seal the win for Tech.
