AUBURN, Ala. --
The Auburn women's tennis team got back on track on Saturday with a 7-0 sweep over Samford.

“We struggled early in doubles, but came out with a win against a tough Samford team,” said head women’s tennis coach Lauren Spencer. “We have a lot to work on in doubles, but I was very impressed with how we performed in singles today. We will continue to work and improve as the season progresses.”

Pleun Burgmans and Paula de Man, ranked No. 30 nationally, clinched a hard fought doubles point for Auburn with a 7-6 (7-3) win on court two. Andie Dikosavljevic and Alannah Griffin teamed up for their third straight doubles win with a 6-3 victory over Iva Parapunova and Savannah Wood. Alizee Michaud and Reka Muller moved up to court one and suffered their first doubles loss of the dual-match season, losing 6-1 to Samford’s Jessica Northcutt and Carita Moolman.

Griffin was first off the court in singles with a dominant 6-1, 6-1 win over Ellie Gerlach. Michaud won her fourth straight singles match for Auburn with a 6-2, 6-1 win on court two. No. 31-ranked Dikosavljevic clinched the victory for the Tigers with a 6-1, 6-4 win over Iva Parapunova.

On court five, de Man picked up a 6-0, 6-4 win over Wood. Freshman Caroline Turner filled in nicely for Muller in the No. 6 spot with a 6-2, 6-3 win over Annika Hepp. Burgmans picked up another strong win in the No. 1 spot, winning 6-1, 6-4.
