NEW YORK -- The Tennessee Lady Vols' run in singles and doubles both ended in the quarterfinals Friday at the USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships.
Junior Brynn Boren won her first singles match of the day in straight sets but then lost 6-1, 6-1 in the evening quarterfinals to fifth-seeded Robin Anderson of UCLA at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
Anderson could practically do no wrong in the quarterfinal tilt and raced out to early leads in both sets en route to her victory.
In her first match of the day, Boren cut down her errors early and powered her way to a 7-5, 6-1 victory over Florida freshman Danielle Collins in the second round. Boren was down two breaks and 3-0 early but climbed back into the first set and captured the momentum in the process.
In the doubles quarterfinals, Boren and senior Kata Szekely were up two breaks but lost the momentum in a 9-7 loss to Pepperdine's Lorraine Guillermo and Khunpak Issara. Boren served for the match at 7-6, but the Waves broke serve and won three games in a row to advance to the semifinals.
In a first-round consolation singles match, Szekely lost to Whitney Kay of North Carolina 7-6, 6-4.
The tournament ends the fall season for Boren and Szekely, but all told, it was a good one for the Lady Vol veteran leaders. The two are 17-3 in doubles together. In singles, the two faced off in the finals of the USTA/ITA Ohio Valley Regional Championships, and Boren was a quarterfinalist at both the ITA All-American and the USTA/ITA National Indoors.
