SEC Women's Tennis Update
By Travis Young -- The No. 19 Vanderbilt women's tennis team is currently in action at the 2009 SEC Women's Tennis Tournament in Fayetteville, Ark. The Commodores currently trail No. 15 Florida 1-0 after dropping the doubles point to the Gators.
The fifth-seeded 'Dores advanced to Friday's quarterfinal round by knocking off 12th seeded Mississippi State 4-0 in yesterday's first round. The Commodores will have to win four of the six singles matches to advance to Saturday's semifinals . The winner of today's match will face No. 1 seeded Georgia, who clinched a spot in the semi-finals with a 4-1 win over eighth-seeded Alabama earlier this morning.
The tournament is a little behind schedule due to windy conditions at the George M. Billingsley Tennis Center, forcing the matches to be played inside the Dills Indoor Tennis Center.
Here are the updated doubles matches
1. No. 43 Boonstra / Mather (UF) def. No. 38 Steinbauer / Wu (VU) 8-4
2. No. 29 Alexander / Revzina (UF) def. Newman / Preeg (VU) 8-5
3. Ulery, C. / Ulery, K. (VU) def. Allen / Wolken (UF) 8-1
order of finish: 3, 2, 1*
