After a dominating performance in the doubles, winning all three matches, the No. 36 BYU women's tennis team (1-3, 1-0) fell to Wisconsin 5-2 Friday afternoon.
Winning the doubles point was almost all the Cougars would take as the Badgers proved to be tougher than BYU expected. BYU won only one point in the singles matches. The lone singles win came from sophomore Elizaveta Khoudoiarova who took three sets to defeat Katie Dougherty.
Sophomore Dominique Reynolds played the next closest match, falling to Katie McGaffigan in two sets, 7-5, 6-3.
The Cougars are left with little time to recover as they return to action against No. 17 Northwestern Saturday, Feb. 2. BYU has four more road matches before returning to Provo for a seven-game homestand in March.
