DURHAM, N.C. -- The ODU Lady Monarchs traveled to top-ranked Duke to face the Blue Devils in women's tennis action today, falling to the number one team in the nation 6-1. Junior Nadine Fahoum, ranked 21st in the nation, earned ODU's lone win at number one singles.

At #1 singles, Fahoum was matched up against #20 Reka Zsilinszka. The two nationally ranked players were in a tight battle, with the first set tied at 5-5, before Zsilinszka retired due to illness, awarding the ODU player the win.

With the quick lead, ODU looked to Joanna Dobrowolska at #2 singles, facing #91 Ellah Nze. Dobrowolska lost the first set, but nearly broke through in the second, forcing a tiebreaker before falling, 6-3, 7-6 (5).

The rest of the match would be relatively quick work for the Blue Devils as 80th ranked Amanda Granson defeated ODU's Irina Dementyeva at #3 singles, 6-0, 6-0 and three more Duke players earned straight set victories at #4, 5 and 6.

In doubles play, Fahoum and Dobrowolska won two games at #1, but were put away by Granson and Nze for the loss. Duke swept the doubles matches for the sixth point.
