Travelling from Philadelphia back to New York, the Fordham Women’s Tennis notched two straight wins. On Wednesday, it defeated Drexel 4-3 at the Hecht/Hamlin Center before coming back north to conquer Queen’s College 6-1 at the Queens College Tennis Center.

After the team lost the doubles point, senior Tatiana Grigoryan started the resurgence in singles, winning 6-1, 6-1 in the third position before sophomore Gianna Insogna took the fourth singles point with a 7-5, 6-3 win.

Continuing the team’s success, freshman Nicole Li won at fifth singles 6-1, 7-5, and sophomore Arina Taluyenko rounded out the victory with her 6-4 win in the first set of first singles, coming back from a 1-6 loss in the second set to take the third 6-4.

With the win under their belts, the Rams faced Queens College on Friday, with impressive performances across the board.

Learning from their last game, the squad took the doubles point in a tremendous three-match sweep.

Taluyenko and Grigoryan won 6-4 in first doubles, freshmen Li and Genevieve Quenville won 6-3 in second doubles, and seniors Alexis Zobeideh and Whitney Weisberg clinched a sweep with a 6-2 victory in the third position.

They almost swept all six singles matches, with Taluyenko continuing to dominate in the first position as she won 6-2, 6-1. In second singles, Grigoryan won in three sets 6-2, 4-6 and 6-3 while Li won 6-4, 6-3 in third singles.
