Vandy is leading 5-3 in two of the doubles matches (losing 5-3 in the other), so they have a great chance to get the first point.

Vandy won the first one 6-3. The other two are 5-4 and 4-5.

That was a necessity!! The #4, #5 and #6 Stanford singles are very strong.

Nice comeback #2 doubles to join #1 with a win and to give us doubles point. Full house here- strong VU contingent. Very hot some wind. Need to win this thing.

Looks like almost every match will be a nail biter.

Vandy wins just 1 of the first 6 singles sets. Time to bounce back

Contreras ties her match at 1-1. Shama looks like she has her match under control. Meyer is ahead 4-3 in the 2nd set.

Dvorak is the first Vandy woman to fall.

Vandy loses its first point at #6. So 1-1 now.


But gets a comeback at #2 to force a third set. Need a couple more of those!

I've never watched competitive tennis in my life and I am completely sucked in by this match.

Meyer forces a third set as well. The other two matches don't look too good, so it may be 3-2 Stanford quite soon.

This is not looking good. Keeping my fingers crossed though.

Sharma does her job and gets the point at #1.

2-2 all now.

Kurtz is battling like crazy to keep Stanford from securing the point at #5 though.

Big game by Contreras to break serve after she was broken. Now she is serving down 3-2.
And she ties it up 3-3.


Kurtz is still fighting in the 2nd set, down just 5-3 and serving.

Kurtz loses, so it is 3-2 Stanford now. Both 3rd set games are very close.

Vandy needs both Contreras and Meyer to win now.

Contreras tied 3-3, Meyer down 2-1. Both in the 3rd set.
