Women's tennis wraps Pac-10 with tough loss to USC


April 26, 2009

The Sun Devil Women's Tennis team wrapped up the final day of Pac-10 Tournament play with a heart-breaking loss to USC.

Sisters Laila and Nadia Abdala, who yesterday beat out Stanford duo Carolyn McVeigh and Jessica Nguyen to advance to the final round of Championship Doubles play, fell just short of a conference title on Sunday, narrowly dropping the contest 6-2, 7-6 (5) to USC's Amanda Fink and Gabriela Niculescu.

The Sun Devils will now return to Tempe and wait to hear about NCAA postseason play.
