FORT WAYNE, Ind. ( - The Green Bay women's tennis team (0-7, 0-1 Horizon League) dropped a close, 4-3 decision to IPFW on Saturday night at the Pine Ridge Racquet and Fitness Club in Fort Wayne, Ind.

The Phoenix was able to win three of the six singles contests, but the Mastodons swept the three doubles matches for the deciding doubles point.

Senior Morgan Weuve (Green Bay, Wis.) and junior Maria Anderson (Marshfield, Wis.) both picked up hard-fought, three-set wins in singles action on Saturday. After dropping the first set 6-2 to IPFW's Raquel Vescovi, Weuve rallied back to take sets two and three at the No. 2 spot 7-5, 6-4. Anderson split the first two sets against Caterina Kiefer at No. 4 (6-4, 3-6) before winning the third and final set 10-3.

"Anderson had a great weekend for us, finishing 3-1," Phoenix head coach Sara Schubring said. "She showed great court coverage and solid serving in the tie-breaker. Weuve also rebounded nicely from a first set loss, taking control with punishing baseline play."

At No. 5 singles, Rebecca Nelson (Brookfield, Wis.) was ahead 5-1 in the first set when IPFW's Alex Forsyth was forced to forfeit due to injury.

Green Bay will play one more road contest on Saturday, Feb. 25 at Bradley before beginning a three-match homestand on March 3 against Northern Iowa at Western Racquet and Fitness Club.
