Ohio State women’s tennis knocked out of NCAA tournament in Super Regional
The Ohio State women’s tennis team’s season has come to an end thanks to a loss to No. 7 Stanford on Friday in a Super Regional. The Buckeyes were seeded No. 10 and looking to pull off the mild upset, but couldn’t get things going, falling by a 4-1 score in Stanford, California.
As usual, the all-important doubles point set the stage with Ohio State losing all three matches to fall behind quickly 1-0. As things moved into the singles matches, the Buckeyes didn’t fare much better with the Scarlet and Gray dropping the first two matches to fall behind 3-0 and severely behind the eight-ball.
No. 20 ranked Cantos Siemers was the lone winner for Ohio State, beating No. 18 Connie Ma, 6-2, 6-4 to pull the Buckeyes to within 3-1. But that would be short-lived because the Cardinal’s Valencia Xu took care of business against OSU’s Shelly Bereznyak to seal the deal and allow Stanford to advance.
