TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (www.ucfathletics.com) - UCF surrendered only 12 games in singles play as the Knights' women's tennis team defeated Florida A&M, 7-0, in Tallahassee Sunday afternoon. With the win, UCF (2-2) stretched its all-time record to 13-0 vs. the Rattlers (0-4).

Only two doubles matches were contested, and the Black and Gold dominated the action to move out to a 1-0 overall lead. Senior Anna Yakimchenkova teamed up with freshman Jenny Frisell to cruise by Rachel Pye and Alice Izomur at No. 1, 8-0, while senior Jennifer Carati and junior Elvira Serrot posted an 8-2 victory over Lenice Boyd and Samaria Bailey at No. 2. UCF notched the win at No. 3 due to FAMU not sending out a full lineup.

Over at No. 2, Serrot notched a 6-2, 6-3 straight-set win against Izomur, and at No. 5, Carati had no trouble picking up a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Bailey.

Two Knights recorded 6-0, 6-0 wins at their spots in the lineup, as Yakimchenkova did not give up a game vs. Sarah Brinkley at No. 3, and junior Kenza Belbacha duplicated that feat at the No. 4 position against Boyd. UCF earned the seventh and final point when FAMU defaulted the match at No. 6.
