MASON, Ohio - No. 5 UMass pulled the first upset of the 2014 Atlantic 10 Women's Tennis Championship, defeating fourth-seeded Richmond 4-1 Friday afternoon at Queen City Racquet Club. The first two of Friday's quarterfinals were moved indoors following rainy weather in the area.
The Minutewomen took a 2-0 lead when Bokhari defeated Brittany Boys, 6-1, 6-1 at No. 2 singles. Richmond cut into the lead with a win at No. 4 singles by Melissa Kandinata, who beat Arielle Griffin, 6-3, 6-2. But UMass wins from Woosley and Aarzoo Malik at No. 5 and No. 3 singles, respectively, clinched the quarterfinal victory.
UMass (13-8) will face top-seeded VCU Saturday in the Atlantic 10 Tournament Semifinals at 10 a.m. at the Lindner Family Tennis Center. Richmond wrapped up its 2013-14 season at 9-13 overall.
