AUBURN, Ala. - No. 28 Auburn women’s tennis earned a 7-0 win over Troy on Sunday at the Yarbrough Tennis Center to close out its non-conference schedule.

The Tigers (10-2) have now won seven-straight matches dating back to Jan. 31 and their streak ranks as the longest active winning streak in the SEC.

“It was good to get a win at home after being on the road for such a long time,” head coach Lauren Longbotham Meisner said following the win. “I thought we played well enough to win today against a scrappy Troy team. We’ll use the break to get back on the practice courts and get set for conference play.”

Auburn opened up the match by sweeping doubles play from the Trojans (2-4). Pleun Burgmans and Jen Pfeifler cruised to a 6-1 victory on court three over Troy’s Brooke Durden and Sanae Ohta. The Tigers made the match 1-0 with a 6-4 victory on court two from the 45th-ranked pair of Michala Kucharova and Reka Muller to clinch the point.

Emily Flickinger and Paula de Man provided Auburn with the doubles sweep as the pair battled back from a 3-1 deficit to knock off Troy’s Anja Cosovic and Trang Huynh, 6-4, at the No. 1 line.

In singles, de Man made quick work of Troy’s Linnea Skymberg, 6-2, 6-0 on court five. The junior now has won six-straight in singles play and remained undefeated in dual matches this season. Pfeifler followed up at the No. 6 line with a dominating 6-1, 6-2 win against the Trojans’ Margot De Haan.

Auburn clinched the match as Andie Dikosavljevic topped Troy’s Huynh, 6-2, 6-1 to pick up her second win in a row at the No. 1 line. With the victory, the freshman improved her dual-match record to a team-best 9-2 this season.

On court two, Pleun Burgmans took a close first set against the Trojans’ Ohta, and did not drop a game in the second set to earn a 7-5, 6-0 victory. Reka Muller defeated Troy’s Jianyun Xue, 6-3, 7-5 at the No. 4 line. Flickinger battled to win 7-6 (7-2), 5-7, 1-0 (10-4) over Troy’s Cosovic on court three to give Auburn the sweep.

The Tigers catch a 12-day break in their schedule and return to action on Feb. 27 for their first SEC match of the year at South Carolina. Auburn’s next home match will be March 6 against Tennessee at the Yarbrough Tennis Center.
