UTSA women’s tennis got a perfect result on Sunday afternoon as they managed a 4-1 victory over UTPA at Edinburg on Sunday afternoon.

The result is a vital win as UTSA have won their third straight tie and find themselves above .500 for the first time in the year.

It was tough conditions in South East Texas as the heavens opened twice resulting in two long rain delays that made it difficult for all the players to get in to the grove of their match.

Only two of the double encounters were completed with Jacobea Junger and Miriam Rosell Canudas cruised to an 8-3 victory at the top position, before Lina Hallgren and Isabelle Jonsson managed an 8-5 win to claim the first point of the tie.

For Jacobea and Junger it continued their incredible start to the 2014 season as they racked up their tenth win of the year for just one loss as they look to push the NCAA women’s doubles rankings.

UTSA doubled their lead in the first singles tie when Jonsson managed a 6-4, 6-0 victory over Katia Stavroulaki in the number three spot.

Junger put UTSA just one win away from sealing the tie at the number one spot as she cruised to a simple 6-1, 6-2 win over Didi Fatchikova.

Reegan Greenwood stopped UTSA claiming a shut out as she cruised past Nicole Karaklis 6-1, 6-1 to pick up UTPA’s only point of the encounter.

UTSA did seal the tie moments later as Rosell Canudas managed a simple 6-4, 6-4 win to wrap up the 4-1 win for the Roadrunners.

That will be the last action for UTSA for almost two weeks as they don’t return to the court untilarch 29th against great rival Texas State.
