AASU Two Points Away From National Championship
AASU takes a 3-0 lead after doubles thanks to a gritty performance by the No. 1 doubles duo of Iuliia Stupak and Gabriella Kovacs. The duo were broken on the very first game and stayed behind most of the match, but fought back to have three match points at 8-7. Lynn held serve, however, sending the match to a tiebreaker. On the second match point of the tiebreaker and fifth of the game, Stupak smashed a cross-court overhand to give AASU the 9-8 win (8-6 in the tiebreak). Johanna Dahlback and Alisa Kagukina gave the Lady Pirates the early 1-0 lead with an 8-1 win at No. 1 doubles, then Martina Beckmann and Alida Muller-Wehlau collected an 8-6 win at No. 2 doubles.
