UCLA's Anderson, Morton take down Nebraska's Veresova, Weatherholt
URBANA, Ill. -- UCLA's Robin Anderson and Skylar Morton notched a big upset in the NCAA doubles draw on Saturday, downing the tournament's third-seeded team to earn a spot in Sunday's semifinals at the NCAA championships.
Anderson and Morton, unseeded in the 32-team draw, picked up their third win of the tournament, downing Patricia Veresova and Mary Weatherholt of Nebraska 6-4, 6-7(5), 7-6(3). The Bruin duo will now face the No. 5-8 team of Alexa Guarachi and Mary Anne Macfarlane of Alabama in Sunday's semifinals.
The victory served as a bit of revenge for Anderson, who lost to Weatherholt in three sets in singles on Friday in the round of 16.
Due to rain in the Champaign-Urbana area, play was moved indoors to the Atkins Tennis Center. The tournament has mostly been played outdoors at the Khan Outdoor Tennis Complex.
Anderson and Morton are looking for UCLA's first NCAA doubles championship since 2008 when Tracy Lin and Riza Zalameda claimed the title.
