LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The 10th-ranked Duke women’s tennis team closed action at the 2014 Freeman Memorial Tennis Championship on Sunday by going 4-1 in singles and 1-1 in doubles at the Fertitta Tennis Complex in Las Vegas, Nev.  

Junior Ester Goldfeld, who is ranked 45th nationally, registered a solid victory over 27th-ranked Sofie Oyen of Florida, 6-2, 6-0 as she closed the weekend with two victories against ranked opponents and a 3-1 singles record.  

Collecting her third singles win of the weekend on Sunday was senior Marianne Jodoin as she knocked off North Carolina’s Laura Slater, 6-1, 6-0.  After struggling the first two days in singles play, senior Hanna Mar closed action with a hard-fought 5-7, 7-5, 1-0 (10-3) win over Stanford’s Krista Hardebeck.  

Freshman Alyssa Smith added a 6-2, 6-4 win over Zoe Katz of USC to close the weekend with a 2-2 mark, while junior Annie Mulholland dropped a 2-6, 7-6, 1-0 (13-11) decision to Tessa Lyons of North Carolina.

Stanford’s 94th-ranked Ellen Tsay defeated top-ranked Robin Anderson of UCLA by default in the singles final.

In the doubles semifinals, the Duke tandem of Beatrice Capra and Mar fell, 6-4, to UCLA’s Kyle McPhillips and Catherine Harrison of UCLA.  The Blue Devil duo of Jodoin and Rachel Kahan knocked off UNLV’s Alexis Garrett and Anett Ferenczi-Bako, 6-1, in the doubles consolation semifinals, but the finals match was not played against the 16th-ranked Stanford team of Taylor Davidson and Tsay.  

In the doubles final, Southern California’s seventh-ranked Zoe Scandalis and Giuliana Olmos (USC) defeated McPhillips Harrison of UCLA, 6-4.
