AUBURN, Ala. – No. 14 Auburn women’s tennis defeated Oklahoma 4-0 Saturday at the Yarbrough Tennis Center to complete an opening-weekend sweep over the Sooners, ULM and Georgia State, and begin the season 3-0.
“It was really, really good to be able to see everyone play this weekend,” Auburn head coach Lauren Spencer said. “We are injury free now, knock on wood, and I’m just very pleased with the overall weekend. I feel confident now going to the ITA Kickoff because we played some really good teams. I think that will give us the confidence and experience going into Kickoff that we need.”
Michaud and Daniel also picked up singles wins against Oklahoma with Michaud defeating Camila Romero 6-1, 6-3 and Daniel defeating Christiana Brigante 6-0, 6-1. Caroline Turner had the match-clinching win on court six, defeating Nina Jabrzemski 6-2, 6-2.
The trio of Michaud, Daniel and Turner each finished the weekend with two wins.
The Tigers will welcome Miami, Tulane and UC Santa Barbara to the Plains next weekend as part of the 2018 ITA Kickoff Weekend held at the Yarbrough Tennis Center.
