No. 34 Jackets Capture 4-3 Win Over Tigers

CLEMSON, S.C. – No. 34 Georgia Tech wrapped up the road portion of the regular season on Sunday with a 4-3 victory at Clemson. The Yellow Jackets rallied from a 3-2 deficit with wins from Kenya Jones and Valeriya Deminova to pocket the win and improve to 12-9 overall and 7-5 in league play.

DOUBLES ACTION: The Yellow Jackets took an early match lead claiming a tight doubles point that came down to the final court. Clemson was forced to retire on court two giving Tech the early advantage, but the Tigers evened the field with a 6-4 decision on court one, leaving the point to be decided on court three where Victoria Flores and Nadia Gizdova led 6-5 over Alex Angyalosy and Laura Marti. But the Tigers forced a tiebreak, knotting the match at 6-6. Flores and Gizdova cruised through the tiebreak, securing the win with a 7-1 edge in the tiebreak, securing the doubles point for Tech.

SINGLES ACTION: Tech and Clemson split the first two singles matches to finish as Gizdova took away a 6-0, 6-1 victory over Marti on six, but Angyalosy edged Flores, 6-4, 6-3, to setup a 2-1 Yellow Jacket lead. The Tigers won the next two singles matches to claim a 3-2 advantage as Tate Schroeder defeated Gia Cohen, 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 and No. 121 Fernanda Navarro edged Nami Otsuka, 4-6, 6-4, 6-1, on court two.

Tech would need the remaining two singles matches, both in third sets, to secure the match. No. 13 Jones knotted the match at 3-3 from court one as the senior fought back from dropping the first set to No. 79 Marie Leduc, 6-2. Jones forced a deciding third set, winning set two in a tiebreak, 8-6. The conference foes stood tied in the final set at 4-all before Jones won the next two games to take the match and pull the Jackets within one victory.

Tied at 3-3, all eyes turned to court three where Deminova battled Sydney Riley. The freshman Jacket won the first set, 6-2, but Riley took the second set in a tiebreak. Tied at 2-all early in the final set, Deminova won the next two games to take a 4-2 advantage. The freshman secured the match with a 6-3 final set win to clinch the match for Georgia Tech, 4-3.
