FAYETTEVILLE - The University of Arkansas women's tennis team hosted the opening day of the Razorback Classic on Friday, and posted a strong performance. The Razorbacks won all four of their singles matches and earned one additional win in doubles.

"The best thing today was that our overall energy was extremely high," Coach Hegarty explained. "That is not a surprise, because playing at home gives us an extra spark. We'll plan on taking a step forward tomorrow and having an even better day."

Freshman Yang Pang earned the first win of the day, defeating Tulsa's Saana Saarteinen 6-0, 6-1. Kimberley - Ann Surin followed with a 6-2, 6-0 victory over Missouri's Alex Clark.

Sophomore Sarah McLean earned a victory, defeating Tulsa's Reneta Kuricova 6-2, 6-1. Freshman Ana Lorena Belmar Hernandez recorded a hard fought win, defeating Liselot Koenen 7-5, 7-5.

Arkansas split their two doubles matches in the morning. Freshmen Kimberley - Ann Surin and Yang Pang defeated Houston's Elena Kordolaimi and Liselot Koenen 8-5. The win marked the first collegiate doubles victory for both players. In the other doubles match, Ana Lorena Belmar Hernandez and Sarah McLean fell 8-5 to Tulsa's Maria Sant'Anna and Reneta Kuricova.

"The young talent is developing," Hegarty said. "This is the perfect environment for us to play well. The indoor option at the Billingsley Tennis Center was a great thing for today."

The Razorback Classic continues on Saturday at the Billingsley Tennis Center. Arkansas will compete in doubles starting at 9 a.m. and singles following the completion of the doubles play. Admission to the tournament is free to the public.
