  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – The Rutgers women’s tennis team (2-0) shut out Fordham at the Rutgers Tennis Center on Tuesday, Feb. 10, sweeping all three doubles matches for the second time in as many matches.

    Andrea Weckstein (Holmdel, NJ) and Ketevan Shmakova (Dover, NJ) began the match with a convincing 8-3 victory at first doubles. Alina Balasa (East Brunswick, NJ) and Helen Magomedova (Brooklyn, NY) followed that up with a 8-4 victory at second doubles, while Kaitlin Link (Ontario, Canada) and Lauren Edelschein (Medford Lakes, NJ) won easily at third doubles, 8-2.

    In singles action, Rutgers was also dominant, as five of the six matches were decided in straight sets. Weckstein won at first singles (6-3, 6-1) and Balasa was pushed to three sets, but pulled out a hard-fought 6-1, 5-7, 7-6 (7-3) victory. Shmakova, Magomedova, Jill Markowitz (Forest Hills, NY) and Link all registered convincing victories.

    The Scarlet Knights return to action this weekend with a pair of matches in New York, traveling to Syracuse on Saturday, Feb. 14, before facing SUNY-Binghamton on Sunday, Feb. 15
