Amos, Dhingra, Yang All Claim Singles Victories Against Brown 

PROVIDENCE, RI – Four members of the Yale women's tennis team competed in Providence on Saturday in the Brown-hosted Brown Quad tournament. As the ITA Northeast Regionals were taking place in Philadelphia on the same day, Yale was unable to bring its full roster; however, the players who did make the trip posted impressive results. Most notably, three Bulldogs – Caroline Amos, Opala Dhingra and Amy Yang – won their singles matches against opponents from conference opponent Brown.

Doubles began on a mixed note for the Elis, with Yale's Dhingra and Sunday Swett falling first to Brown's Juliana Simon and Katie Ta. Amos soon leveled things for Yale, however, teaming up with a player from Boston College to best Brown's Semi Oloko and Courtney Kowalsky, 6-3.

Yale had more positive results in singles. Amos led the way with one of the day's most dominant performances, a 6-1, 6-0 win over Brown's Nandu Mandalap at the No. 3 spot; Yang also made quick work of her opponent, downing Brown's Simon 6-2, 6-2 at the No. 1 position. The closest match of the day came between Dhingra and Ta at No. 2 singles, where the first set went down to the wire; the Bulldog ultimately prevailed 8-6 in a tiebreak, however, and took the following set 6-4 to finish the day on a positive note for her team. This result continued Dhingra's strong start to the season and improved her singles record so far to 3-1.

Across both the ITA Northeast Regionals and the Brown Quad, the Elis enjoyed a banner weekend over fall break. The team will next take the court on Nov. 3 for the Big Green Invitational.

Full results for the Brown Quad are available here.
