The Fordham Women’s Tennis team had its home opener against LIU Brooklyn this Friday, coming just shy of a win at the Hawthorn/Rooney Courts.

The 4-3 loss to the Blackbirds came with two wins in doubles, enough to secure the overall doubles point. Sophomore Arina Taluyenko and senior Tatiana Grigoryan won 6-2 in first doubles, while sophomore Gianna Insogna and freshman Nicole Li clinched the third doubles win 6-3.

The Rams couldn’t sustain the momentum in singles, winning two out of six matches. The two wins came at the fourth and fifth positions, as the third doubles duo reigned supreme: Insogna won fourth singles 6-4 and 6-4, and Li won 7-5, 6-3.

Grigoryan won the first set in third singles yet lost the second 6-4 and dropped the tiebreaker 6-3.

The Rams are on the road again this weekend, making their way to Philadelphia to face Atlantic 10 opponent Saint Joseph’s University this Saturday at 1:30.
