FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Just like their counterparts at home, the Ole Miss women’s tennis team rallied from losing the doubles point to claim a 4-2 win over Arkansas here Friday at the Billingsley Tennis Center. With the win, the Rebels improved to 9-5 overall and 3-4 in the SEC.

It was not the start the Rebels would have liked after gaining big leads on all three doubles courts.  The Rebel tandem of Zalina Khairudinova and Julia Jones picked up their 13th win of the year, 8-6 at No. 3, but the Razorbacks rallied to win tiebreakers at one and two for the point.

Erin Stephens made quick work of Arkansas’ Flavia Araujo 6-3, 6-0 at No. 5 singles to tie the match.  Mai El Kamash followed with a 6-0, 6-2 win against Sasha Shkorupeieva at No. 4 to give the Rebels. Julia Jones made it 3-1 Rebels when she finished off Sarah McLean 6-3, 6-2 at No. 3 singles.

Arkansas’ only point in singles came at No. 1, where Yang Pang defeated Rebel freshman Zalina Khairudinova 6-2, 6-2.  

That would be it for the Razorbacks, as Iris Verboven clinched it on court six, beating Brittany Huxley 6-2, 7-5.  When play stopped, Caroline Rohde-Moe was up a set and 2-0 in the second against Shannon Hudson.

“We are happy to get a road win, especially after the way we lost the doubles point,” head coach Mark Beyers said.  I am proud of the girls and the way they responded in singles. We took care of business quickly at three, four and five and then clinched it as six. It’s never easy to do that, especially on the road. Now we got to Baton Rouge and try to sweep the road trip.”

The Rebels travel to Baton Rouge Sunday to face LSU at Noon.  The Tigers defeated Mississippi State 4-1 Friday.
