AUBURN – Auburn women’s tennis fell 4-0 to fourth-ranked Georgia on Friday at the Yarbrough Tennis Center.

“All credit goes to Georgia. They are a really great team,” Auburn women’s tennis head coach Lauren Longbotham Meisner said. “They are a very deserving top-five team. I think we played them really, really well. I think our energy was up. This is our third top-five team that we have played and out of all those three, this was the best we played.

“I think we had a lot of opportunity in the doubles, and even though we didn’t get the point, we played exceptionally well. A few points there and there and we would’ve gotten the point. Although the score doesn’t really reflect how close the match was, I thought we played really well on all six singles courts. I’m pleased with our performance I think we can take a lot of positive from this match heading into the match with Tennessee.”

With the loss, Auburn moves to 16-7 for the season and 6-6 in conference play.  

In doubles, sophomore Jen Pfeifler and senior Paulina Schippers fell 8-6 to Georgia’s Lilly Kimbell and Ayaka Okuno on court three.

At the top spot, the No. 10 team of freshman Pleun Burgmans and senior Plamena Kurteva battled the No. 3 tandem of Kate Fuller and Silvia Garcia to a close 9-7 loss to concede the doubles point to the Bulldogs (18-2, 11-1 SEC).

In singles, Pfeifler fell 6-2, 6-2 to Georgia’s Fuller on court four. Freshman Michala Kucharova then lost 6-3, 6-1 to No. 88 Garcia at the No. 3 position giving the Bulldogs a 3-0 advantage.
