EUGENE, Ore. - The No. 45 Oregon women's tennis team grabbed the doubles point against No. 19 Arizona State, but the Sun Devils took five of six singles matches and the Ducks fell 5-2 on Saturday afternoon at the Student Tennis Center.
Oregon's loss drops its overall record to 7-4 (1-1 Pac-10) while Arizona State improves to 6-1 (1-0 Pac-10) with the come-from-behind victory.
Oregon had the early lead after Pavlina Smatova and Ana Cecilia Olivos combined to win at No. 1 doubles and Carmen Seremeta and Trudie du Toit were victorious at No. 3 doubles.
But Arizona State came out strong, winning the first five singles matches before Siobhan Cavan won at No. 6 singles, 6-1, 7-5, to end the day.
The Ducks next seven matches are on the road, starting next weekend with Washington State in Pullman, Wash., and UW in Seattle.
