Strong Singles Play Boosts Bulls to Victory

By TOM ZEBOLD

USF Senior Writer

TAMPA - The Bulls didn't bring their best game but found a way to win Wednesday afternoon at home.

The USF women's tennis team dropped the doubles point and stormed back with five singles wins in a 5-2 victory over Boston College at the USF Varsity Courts.

"We fought and that's the way to win," head coach Agustin Moreno said. "When you fight, you win and of course the momentum of being at home was great."

After suffering a 4-3 loss at Rice that a "heartbreaker" on Sunday, Moreno's squad dug out of a 2-1 hole with two-set victories by Fanny Fracassi, Danielle Mills and Alessandra Bonte on Wednesday.

Ecaterina Vasenina wore out Jessica Wacnik, 6-0, 3-6, 6-2 to give USF another point and Paula Montoya locked up the victory by defeating Katarina Gajic, 6-5, 4-6, 7-5.

The Bulls are back on the USF Varsity Courts 2 p.m. Thursday when they host Miami (Ohio).

"We're a very good team and we just have to be a little more focused tomorrow on doubles," Moreno said. "If we win the doubles it's going to be big and everything else is going to be a confidence boost."
