MALIBU, Calif. - After coming close time and time again, the Pepperdine women's tennis team finally broke through today and defeated Michigan State 4-0 to put its first tally in the win column in 2013. The Waves won the doubles point before delivering a dominant performance in singles.

Pepperdine (1-9) got on the board right away, winning two of the three doubles matches to claim the early advantage. Khunpak Issara (Bangkok, Thailand/Bangkok Patana School) and Lorraine Guillermo (Walnut, Calif./Rowland HS) won their fourth straight, topping Marina Bohrer and Catherine Parenteau 8-4.

Ale Granillo (Pachuca, Mexico/Instituto Hidalgo) and Michaela Capannolo (Hawthorn, Australia/Genazzano FCJ College) also won in doubles, downing Nicole Herzog and Michaela Silesova by a score of 8-3.

The momentum carried over in singles, and the Waves won the first set in five of the six matches.

Granillo nearly shut out Olga Chernova, allowing just one game in a straight-set decision.

With her sixth singles win in a row, Issara put a point on the board for Pepperdine with a 6-3, 6-2 triumph versus Parenteau.

Freshman Capannolo defeated Emily Meyers 6-1, 7-5.

With the dual decided, play was suspended on the remaining courts.

Guillermo and Megan Moore (Portland, Ore./Jesuit HS) were both well on their way to victory, having both won their first sets.

The loss drops the Spartans to 10-5 on the season.
