This past week, ASU women's tennis continued its longest winning streak of the season with two more wins, and the men's team won two matches against UC San Diego after losing against Stanford.
No. 20 ASU women’s tennis (13-6) stretched its winning streak to five after sweeping Colorado on Friday and winning 4-3 against Utah Sunday.
In ASU's match against Colorado, senior Sedona Gallagher and sophomore Giulia Morlet cruised through their doubles match for a 6-1 win, and senior Cali Jankowski and sophomore Marianna Argyrokastriti clinched the doubles point after a 6-4 victory.
ASU finished off the Buffaloes in singles after three Sun Devils won their singles matches in just two sets: Gallagher (6-1, 6-2), Jankowski (6-4, 6-4) and Argyrokastriti (6-3, 6-0).
On Sunday, the Sun Devils continued their strong doubles play with two more wins. Freshman Patricija Spaka and senior Domenika Turkovic won their match 6-1, and Morlet and Gallagher won their match by the same score.
ASU captured two quick points in singles play with wins from Gallagher and Argyrokastriti, but Utah secured a point after graduate student Linda Huang defeated Morlet 6-4, 7-5. The Sun Devils secured the win after Spaka won her match 7-6, 6-0. Turkovic and Jankowski subsequently dropped each of their singles matches in three sets.
The ASU men's tennis team had a topsy-turvy week starting with a 4-1 loss to Stanford on April 3 followed by two wins on the same day against the UC San Diego Tritons on Wednesday.
Cassone is the highest-ranked freshman at No. 17.
The Sun Devils bounced back a few days later in La Jolla where they visited the Tritons for a doubleheader.
The first game was all ASU, which dominated the doubles to kick things off with wins by Cassone and junior Jacob Bullard, and co-captains sophomore Max McKennon and senior Fabien Salle won in their respective matches.
The Sun Devils kept the pressure on in the second match a few hours later, crushing the doubles again and taking charge in the singles, winning 5-0.
ASU hopes to keep its momentum going when the team takes on the University of Washington at 3 p.m. Friday in Seattle.
