ITA Tennis Emory's Ysabel Gonzalez-Rico/Katie Chang wins 2021 doubles championship

Entering Sunday afternoon's doubles title match, we knew an Emory pair would win. We just didn't know which.

But we do now. Y. Gonzalez-Rico/K. Chang became the winning duo after beating teammates S. Taylor/C. Watson in three sets (6-2, 5-7, 6-3). Taylor/Watson stormed back in the second set to force a third, but the pivot in momentum was not enough to pull off the victory.

Gonzalez-Rico/Chang completed the year undefeated with a perfect 16-0 record.
