PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. - University of Tennessee women's tennis player Rosalía Alda was eliminated from the main singles draw at the 2010 Riviera/ITA Women's All-American Tennis Championships on Thursday evening at the Riviera Tennis Center.
Alda, a senior from Round Rock, Texas, fell to SMU's Marta Lesniak, 6-1, 6-2. Lesniak is ranked No. 22 nationally but had to play through the qualifying round to reach the main draw.
