Durham, N.C. – The Old Dominion University women’s tennis team surrendered the doubles point, but rebounded to win five of the six singles matches to upend No. 36 North Carolina State 5-2 Saturday afternoon in Raleigh.  With the win the Lady Monarchs improved to 3-2 and snapped a two-match losing streak to ACC opponents after falling to No. 41 Virginia and No. 9 Duke.


NC State secured the doubles point by sweeping all three doubles matches, with Berkeley Brock and Lenka Hojckova upsetting ODU’s 40th ranked duo of Nadine Fahoum and Charleen Haarhoff, 8-3 at No. 1.


The Lady Monarchs got on the board when NC State’s Daria Petrovic was forced to retire in the second set of her match at No. 4 against Margarita Spicin.  The No. 2 match featured two ranked opponents in NC State’s Hojckova (87th) and ODU’s Haarhoff (88th).  Hojckova got the upper hand, winning 6-0, 6-4.


From there it was all ODU, as the Lady Monarchs won the remaining four matches, two coming in straight sets.  At No. 1 Fahoum dropped the first set before bouncing back to defeat Brock 4-6, 6-2, 6-2.  Likewise, at No. 3 Joanna Dobrowolska also came from one set down to earn her victory over the Wolfpack’s Neils Barringer, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1.


Irina Dementyeva and Marija Citic cruised to straight set victories at No. 5 and No. 6 respectively to close out the match for the Lady Monarchs.


ODU returns to action next Saturday, Jan. 31 when the Lady Monarchs host a doubleheader against Penn at 1 p.m. and Howard at 5 p.m.
