Jan. 25, 2003
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The GW Women's Tennis team returned to the court on Saturday, January 25 by losing 5-2 to the University of Richmond Spiders at the Montclair Tennis Club. This evens the Colonials dual meet record to 1-1. Last season, the Colonials only managed one victory against the Spiders in both doubles and singles competition, but totalled three this season, and according to Coach Helen Andrews, "were much more competitive."
Junior Nazli Gencsoy (Istanbul, Turkey/Lyree de Galatasaray) avenged a 6-0, 6-0 loss last year versus Vanessa Bagnato by beating her 4-6, 6-3 (11-9). Coach Helen Andrews said, "this is the best I've seen Nazli play in one and a half years." Senior Samantha Fisher (Greenwich, CT/The Benjamin School) also picked up singles victory for the Colonials by beating Casey Cohen, 2-6, 6-4, 7-5.
GW was able to win one out of the three doubles matches as Gencsoy teamed with sophomore Sevla Gonca (Ankara, Turkey/Bilkent) to win 9-8 (7-4).
Up next, the Colonials will host the University of Maryland on Saturday, February 1 at the Montclair Tennis Club.
