TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – It was not the weekend the Ole Miss women’s tennis team was hoping for to start Southeastern Conference play, as they concluded the road trip with a 4-0 loss to No. 11 Alabama at the Alabama Tennis Stadium Sunday.

With Friday’s loss to No. 23 Auburn, the Rebels are now 5-3 overall and 0-2 in the SEC. They return home to host Tennessee and Georgia next weekend at the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center.

Julia Jones and Zalina Khairudinova improved to 9-1 overall and 7-1 in dual matches as they shut out the 35th-ranked tandem of Luicelena Perez and Emily Zabor 8-0 at No. 3 doubles. But, the Crimson Tide took the top two spots for the 1-0 lead.

In singles, Alabama picked up straight sets wins at three, four and five to secure the win.  Jones fell to 75th-ranked Erin Routliffe, Mai El Kamash lost to 67th-ranked Maya Jansen 6-4, 6-3 and then Erin Stephens dropped a 6-3, 6-4 decision to Emily Zabor.
