March 4, 2007

BOULDER, Colo. - Baylor's women's tennis team lost its first regular season Big 12 match after 25 straight wins Sunday falling 5-2 to Colorado at the Millennium Hotel Harvest House. The Bears currently rank No. 14 with their 6-5 overall record and 1-1 conference mark.

Baylor's doubles highlight came on court one as Zuzana Cerna and Zuzana Chmelarova defeated CU's No. 42 duo Camila Belassi and Gleisy Torres Torres. The win marks the second straight win for the Baylor pair over a ranked opponent. But the Bears had already dropped their doubles matches on courts two and three to give Colorado the doubles point.

Colorado then took back the lead with Monica Milewski's 6-4, 6-4 win over Zuzana Cerna on court one. Battling again to even the score, No. 76 Lenka Broosova earned a Baylor point defeating Veera Nurmi 6-2, 6-4 on court four.

Colorado took control of the game and clinched the Buffaloes' victory picking up the final three points on courts four, five, and six.
