Noles Finish Strong In Singles.

Noemie Scharle and Katie Rybakova finished as flight champions in singles competition.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida Stateís womenís tennis team finished a great weekend at their Seminole Quad Tournament by winning both flights in singles on Sunday. Senior Katie Rybakova defeated teammate and fellow senior Federica Suess 6-3, 6-2 in one flight championship. Sophomore Noemie Scharle finished off a great tournament by defeating the 30th ranked player in the country in South Floridaís Irene Rehberger 6-4, 6-4.

"This was another good weekend of match play for us," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "We got to specifically indentify things we need to work on as we head into next weekendís regional championships up in Athens."

The players showed they were able to battle back from behind to win several matches, and their coach certainly took notice.

"A couple of the girls were in tough situations this weekend and they got through it very well," said Hyde. "There is one thing this team definitely does not lack, and that is fight. That is something we identify in the recruiting process and is something that is going to get you through those hard times. They definitely demonstrated that very well this weekend and I was proud of that. This team has always been made up of fighters, so itís good to see that tradition continues."

The win for Scharle was her fifth victory over a top 100 opponent this season, and topped off a great tournament for her.

"Today I was really nervous to start off the match," said Scharle. "I was down 4-1 right way and I just tried to calm down, play my game and after that it went fine, but I still didnít play a complete game. The second set, when I was winning I would back off and didnít play my game, but at the end I just tried to focus on the last game and it worked out finally. I am happy to win this tournament, it feels really good. I am having a good start to my season, so I am happy."

Playing at home is considered an advantage to most athletes, but Scharle admits she was a little nervous to be playing her first home match of the season.

"I was really nervous to be honest, because usually at home I never play well," said Scharle. "I think when I play in front of our home crowd I sometimes put too much pressure on myself, but I am just happy to have won this tournament. It gives me so much confidence for the upcoming tournaments and to win in front of my home crowd feels good."

While the team saw great success in singles, one area the team did not play to their expectations was in doubles, where the girls went 1-5 in their weekend matches.

"Doubles is definitely an area we have got to hone in on," said Hyde. "We are doing a lot of the right things in doubles, but the execution is not quite there yet. That is something we are definitely going to focus on this week as we are getting ready for our next competition."

"I think everybody has to work on doubles right now," added Scharle. "We have new teams, especially Fede and Fran who have not played together, so that is new for them. Katie and I we are trying to switch it up, she now goes to the back end and I am to the front end. Even though we lost today, it was much better than yesterday, so we just have to work on it and I think we will be fine. We have to figure out our own game, be more aggressive, have to go to the net and it will work itself out."

Overall it was a successful tournament for the team, and they were able to build a lot of confidence over the course of the weekend.

"I was proud of the girls in singles," remarked Hyde. "Across the board everyone got better this weekend in singles. To win a couple flights at your own home event is always fun and is a good way to finish the last day up. More than anything we got a lot of good, competitive matches under our belts leading into next weekend. All in all it was a good weekend. We definitely have improvements we need to make, and things we need to hone in on, but for now we are pretty pleased with the way the weekend turned out."

The Seminoles will now travel to Athens, Georgia for the ITA Regional Championships beginning next Friday.

'Noles Win First Dual Match.

Florida State won their first match of the season with a big win over No. 54 Florida International.

Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida State women's tennis team came out with a victory in their first match of the spring dual match season as they defeated the No. 54 Florida International Golden Panthers 5-2 at the Scott Speicher Center.

"Today the girls did a great job playing in pretty cold and windy conditions," said associate head coach Oliver Foreman. "This type of weather is a great equalizer, and what the difference was today was discipline. This time last year I didn't feel we were ready to compete and struggled with a loss to open the season, but this year was the different. The girls have done a much better job of being prepared physically and mentally and I think a start like this sets us up very well for next weekend for hosting National Indoors."

Florida State's started the day in doubles as the young tandem of sophomore Francesca Segarelli and freshman Ruth Seaborne were victorious as they defeated Liset Brito and Rita Maisak 8-2. Florida State wasn't finished as Schalre and freshman Manon Veldman defeated Lisa Johnson and Maria Spenceley 8-5 to give the Seminoles the extra point in doubles.

In singles the Seminoles continued their winning ways taking four out of six hard fought matches against the Golden Panthers. Senior Katie Rybakova defeated Liset Brito 6-3, 6-4 and fellow senior Federica Suess defeated Rita Maisak 6-2, 6-2. Freshman Ruth Seaborne won the first singles dual match of her career winning 6-2, 6-1 over Maria Spenceley. The story of the day however was sophomore Noemie Scharle returning to play her first dual match in over a year due to a medical redshirt last season. Scharle returned to the courts as she had left them, which was in dominating fashion as she defeated Lisa Johnson 6-1, 6-3.

"It's always good to win your first match," added Scharle. "The first match is always very mental, it's hard to just to get right back into it and I feel it's always the hardest match. I feel like next week is going to be much better."

Although her terrific play would suggest otherwise, Scharle admits to being a little nervous in retuning to the tennis courts for her first official match back.

"Actually I was quite nervous before the match, especially when I am playing at home, but I got into the match well," said Scharle. "My opponent didn't start out very well, but after the second set she played much better and I got a little bit tense. I feel like I just need to get back into the swing of it, but the girls helped motivate me today and it all worked out. Overall I think we did great today. Fran just lost, but she played a great match. Manon is getting so much better, and everybody down the line played awesome tennis. I think it was great preparation for next week."

With their first win under their belts, the team credits much of their success to the support of loyal Seminole fans that came out on such a cold day to cheer them on.

"I was extremely impressed with our fans today to come out and support us," said Foreman. "I cannot thank them enough for how much of a difference their presence makes with our girls competing at home."

The Seminoles will return to action next Saturday to host the National Indoors.

'Noles Top Princeton 5-2.

Florida State defeated Princeton 5-2 on day one of the ITA Kick-Off Weekend.

Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 14 Florida State women's tennis team (2-0) came out strong on the first day of the ITA Kick-Off Weekend with a 5-2 victory over the No. 37 Princeton Tigers (4-1). Florida State will now play No. 24 Washington, who advanced by defeating No. 16 Texas in a nail biter, tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. "Princeton played a really good match today," said head coach Jennifer Hyde.

"They have a team of fighters, they were scrappy and they definetly were very competitive out there. I was glad to see us take care of business and get the job done to help us advance to the next round."

Florida State started out hot by quickly winning their first two matches in doubles as freshman Ruth Seaborne and sophomore Francesca Segarelli first defeated Princeton's Hilary Bartlett and Taylor Marable 8-3. Senior's Katie Rybakova and Federica Suess followed suit as they defeated the Tigers Blakely Ashley and Katherine Flanigan 8-4 to give the Seminoles the doubles point.

"It was nice to get that doubles point and start off with a 1-0 lead, which is really important in these big tournaments, but we have a lot of things we have to sharpen up on if we are going to advance through tomorrow. We will have to compete a lot harder and play with a lot more spirit and discipline than we did today."

In the first match of the day, the Washington Huskies fought back from behind as they came back to shock the Texas Longhorns 4-3. The final point came down to an epic final battle between No. 6 Denise Dy who with an amazing comeback defeated No. 8 Aeriel Ellis 2-6, 7-6, 7-5.

"Washington played a really good, tight match with Texas today and they were willing to work very hard out there. We are going to have to match and exceed that tomorrow, and I know the girls will be ready. We are fired up for the opportunity to get to the ITA Team Indoors again this year."

One thing that the Seminoles believe can help them get past a strong opponent in Washington is the full support of their fans.

"We love to have our Tallahassee tennis supporters in the stands, and we look forward to having them supporting us again tomorrow. It's a very big match for us and we hope that people will come out and get behind these young ladies as they compete their hearts out."

'Noles Fall To Huskies 4-3.

Florida State's match came down to the wire, but fell just short of advancing to the Sweet 16.

Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The No. 14 Florida State women's tennis team (2-1) showed a tremendous amount of fight on the second day of the ITA Kick-Off Weekend, but fell just one point short as No. 24 Washington came away with the 4-3 victory. The loss ended the Seminoles shot at making it to the Sweet 16 for the second straight year just one game short.

"Washington did a great job today and this weekend," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "They came in and beat two top twenty teams, and that is not easy to do. Hats off to them."

While the team didn't get the result they were looking for, they did show a lot of fight on the courts today and their coach took notice.

"We worked really hard today, and this is just part of our process of the season," Hyde said. "We have a lot more work ahead of us this semester to get to where we want to be, but if this is any indication for what is ahead for us than I am fired up to see what this team brings this spring. The best is yet to come."

Florida State started out slow falling in doubles 2-1 and than losing the first set in four out the six matches in singles. From that point forward the momentum started to shift towards Seminoles as they began to mount a courageous comeback.

"A goal for us today was to come out and play more as a team than we did yesterday and without a doubt this team did a great job of that today," said Hyde. "I couldn't be more proud of the fight and the effort they showed. We were down four first sets in singles very quickly, but the girls did a great job of digging in and swinging the momentum back in their favor as the match progressed. They could have easily rolled over at that point, and I think what I am most proud of today is how they did just the opposite. They dug their heels in and gave themselves a chance to win that match after being down by such a great margin."

Two players in particular, seniors Katie Rybakova and Federica Suess, battled hard to the very end giving the Seminoles a real chance to pull of the amazing comeback.

"Fede gave us a shot," added Hyde. "With the team score at 2-3, Fede was down 5-1 in the third set, and fought back to win that match. Not very often in college ball at this level do you see people willing to fight back from a 1-5 deficit, but this is so just typical Fede. I wouldn't expect anything less from her. She wants it so bad, and I am really proud of her effort today. Katie had a great opportunity to beat the number six player in the and gave herself and us a shot as well. She had an opportunity to win that match today and she is going to have to take this one the chin, but realize how close she was and have no reason to hang her head."

The comeback by Suess was not only remarkable, but gave the Seminoles a legit chance of completing the comeback as Rybakova was still competing with Dy on court one. "Well I knew that I had to get it done and that it was very crucial to get that point, so that just fired me up," said senior Federica Suess. "I knew that was our only option." While the loss was certainly a tough one, the team still is able to keep a positive attitude and perspective on the season that lies ahead.

"We showed a lot of fire, and that is a positive thing," said Suess. "It was pretty heartbreaking because we were so close, but I think there is still a lot of positives that can be taken from this. Maybe in a couple of days maybe we will be able to see those things, but right now it's hard to think of them. We are right there though. Katie had some match points, and I came back, so it could have easily been our match."

"I am just so proud of our kids," Hyde concluded. "I am so proud to coach them, they acted classy, the competed hard, and they fought as hard as they could. As a coach, that is all we can ask of them, and today they delivered a good dose of that. I hate that the girls came up a little bit short and I know this one will sting for a while." In the consolation match earlier in the day, the No. 16 Texas Longhorns fought back after losing in doubles to sweep No. 37 Princeton in singles to win 6-1.

Florida State will now take a week of before they play Auburn at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 11th at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

'Noles Tame Tigers 6-1.

Florida State defeats Auburn 6-1 and now heads to Miami to open ACC play on Sunday.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 15 Florida State women's tennis team (3-1) came on with a strong showing that saw five of six Seminoles post victories in singles to help FSU tame the No. 61 Auburn Tigers (0-3) by the dominating score of 6-1. The Garnet and Gold now face in-state rival Miami, ranked No. 10, this Sunday in Coral Gables to open ACC play.

"I think in a couple spots in singles we found ourselves in a bit of a pickle, but we did a good job of taking command in those third sets to get the win," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "We really dug ourselves out some holes tonight, but that is what this team does. They are very good at that, but we have to make sure we don't rely on doing that all the time. All in all it was a good night, it was a good battle. We knew Auburn was going to come in here and compete hard and they did just that. They are always a competitive team and we got what we expected. The girls did a good job of taking care of business again and we will take this 6-1 win with us down to Miami in a really important match to open ACC play."

The 'Noles kicked off the match strong by posting two doubles wins to take the 1-0 lead into singles. The biggest story was the young duo of freshman Ruth Seaborne and sophomore Francesca Segarelli defeating Auburn's No. 21 ranked duo of Paulina Schippers and Jacqueline Kasler 8-2. Court three saw also FSU winning with seniors Katie Rybakova and Federica Suess defeating Auburn's Plamena Kurteva and Taylor Schreimann 8-1.

"Fran and Ruth are a very young duo, and with the way they are playing they are likely working themselves into the rankings," said Hyde. "I think they are playing really good doubles together. They are jelling well as a team, learning how the other thinks, and kind of planning two or three hits ahead in the match. They really compliment each other well with the big ground strokes from Fran setting up Ruth at the net. They are coming along very well, they are a very exciting doubles team and we are looking forward to them having a couple more opportunities to get some ranked wins with them."

FSU's continued to ride the wave of success in singles as all the 'Noles won on five of the six courts, including big comebacks by sophomore Noemie Scharle and Ruth Seaborne who fell behind in their first sets. The win was big for Scharle who not only clinched the victory for the Seminoles, but is starting to increase her confidence after missing last season due to a wrist injury.

"That was a big match for Noemie," said Hyde." I think at the end of the first set she could have very easily felt defeated, and she knew she had to overcome some hurdles tonight, but she is starting to get her confidence back slowly from her injury. She did a really good job of putting her head down and fighting through it. She said to me in the second set she was not going to lose this match, and from that point forward she lost only one more game. She needed to get over that hurdle tonight and I am very proud of her effort tonight for doing that."

"Physically I feel good," added Scharle. "It's just all mental right now for me. I am not playing with a lot of confidence right now and have been struggling in my matches. In practice I am playing well but then I come into the match and kind of stress out because I am working on a lot of things right now, so my confidence is not great, but I am just happy I made it through today. Wins always make your confidence better, so even though I struggled a lot today, playing ugly and winning against their number two is always good."

Florida State will have a quick turnaround as it heads to face in-state rival Miami, ranked tenth in the country, at the Neil Shiff Tennis Center. FSU will have to brace itself for stiff competition with Miami brining in No. 16 Bianca Eichkorn, No. 98 Anna Bartenstein, and No. 99 Danielle Mills. Doubles will also be a battle between both programs with No. 42 Kayla Rizzolo and Gabriela Mejia as well as No. 46 Eichkorn and Barnstein representing the Hurricanes.

"We are prepared," said Hyde. "We had a good week of practice and we are on the plane tomorrow. We will have a light hit tomorrow and as soon as our feet hit the ground on Sunday morning it will be all about that instate rivalry, all about pride, and all about representing Florida State. We know it's going to be a battle down there, but we are really looking forward to it. Everyone is very excited."

Noles Drop ACC Opener To Miami.

Florida State falls 6-1 to rival No. 10 Miami Hurricanes in ACC season opener.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com.

CORAL GABLES, FL - Despite jumping out to a strong start, the No. 15 Florida State women's tennis team (3-2) couldn't hold off the No. 10 Miami Hurricanes (5-0) who defeated the Seminoles 6-1 in the ACC opening road match played at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.

Florida State started out hot by quickly jumping to a lead in all three matches in doubles, but the Hurricanes quickly turned the momentum into their favor by posting two doubles wins in comeback fashion to take the 1-0 lead into singles. Seniors Katie Rybakova and Federica Suess posted the Seminoles lone doubles victory by defeating Miami's No. 42 ranked duo of Kayla Rizzolo and Gabriela Mejia 8-4.

The Seminoles nearly captured the point in doubles as the young duo of freshman Ruth Seaborne and sophomore Francesca Segarelli jumped out to an early lead over the No. 46 tandem Bianca Eichkorn and Anna Bartenstein of the Hurricanes. It would have marked the duo's second straight victory over a ranked opponent after defeating Auburn's No. 21 ranked team of Paulina Schippers and Jacqueline Kasler 8-2 on Friday. It looked like that was the case after jumping out to an early lead, but this time they couldn't quite hold on as they fell 9-7 to the more experienced Hurricanes.

In singles FSU again faced stiff competition as Miami came in with three top 100 players in No. 16 Bianca Eichkorn, No. 98 Anna Bartenstein, and No. 99 Danielle Mills. Sophomore Francesca Segarelli proved why she was the 2010 ACC Freshman of the Year as she defeated Mills 6-2, 6-4 for the Seminoles lone point.

The Seminoles will now travel to Atlanta to face the No. 14 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on February 26 at 12:00pm before heading back home to face instate rival No. 2 Florida Gators on March 1st at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center at 4:00pm.

'Noles Swat Yellow Jackets, 5-2.

The Florida State women's tennis team defeated No. 15 Georgia Tech 5-2 for their first ACC win.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

ATLANTA, GA - The No. 20 Florida State women's tennis team (4-2, 1-1) rebounded from a tough road loss to rival Miami to win its first Atlantic Coast Conference match of the 2011 season by defeating the No. 15 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (5-4, 0-1) in a hard fought 5-2 victory during a "Gold Out" match at the Bill Moore Tennis Center.

"I'm very proud of the girls and their efforts today," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "It feels amazing to walk away with a win against a very good team."

The Seminoles came out firing on all cylinders by winning the doubles point with victories on two of three courts. Sophomore Amy Sargeant, playing in her first match of the season, made her official return from hip surgery a triumphant one by winning her doubles match along with senior doubles partner Katie Rybakova. The two played like seasoned veterans in defeating Georgia Tech's Lynn Blau and Muriel Wacker 8-4. Not to be outdone, sophomore Noemie Scharle and senior Federica Suess defeated the Yellow Jackets No. 70 ranked tandem of Sasha Krupina and Elizabeth Kilborn 8-6 to take home the doubles point.

"Fede and Noemie were down 5-0 at the #1 doubles spot, and they showed a ton of guts to rally back to clinch the doubles point for us," said Hyde. "Oliver did a great job of coaching them through that match, and the girls responded and executed unbelievably well."

In singles the Seminoles continued their strong play by winning of four of the six courts. The Seminoles earned two victories over ranked opponents as Rybakova defeated No. 105 Viet Ha Ngo 6-3, 7-5 and sophomore Francesca Segarelli, the 2009 ACC freshman of the year, defeated No. 92 Caroline Lilley 6-2, 0-6, 6-2. Sensational freshman Ruth Seaborne defeated Yellow Jacket senior Lynn Blau 6-4, 6-4 to give the Seminoles the pivotal fourth point to seal the victory. Sargeant finished up the great day for the Seminoles by defeating Elizabeth Kilborn 6-2, 6-7 (3-7), 6-2.

"I am very proud of Amy and the job she did today" added Hyde. "She got it done in both doubles and singles today and it is great to see her competing again. She definitely gets the game ball today.

The victory was quite the turnaround for the Seminoles after dropping a 6-1 decision to No. 10 Miami during a Feb. 13 match in Coral Gables in the Seminoles ACC opener. The team made the best of having a week off by using the extra time off to prepare themselves for their match against Georgia Tech. The extra time proved beneficial to the Seminoles success as they defeated the Yellow Jackets from start to finish.

"Today was a complete team effort," Hyde said. "Everyone on the team contributed to the win, and those kinds of wins are so meaningful. We knew we had an opportunity to get over a big hump today and we did just that."

With the victory, Florida State now holds a 18-9 edge in the all-time series against Georgia Tech. The two teams had previously faced each in 2009 when the No. 17 Seminoles defeated the No. 7 Yellow Jackets 4-3 in the quarterfinals of the 2009 ACC Tournament. Last year's match with Georgia Tech at home was postponed due to rain and the match was never made up.

The Seminoles will return home to the Scott Speicher Tennis Center to face the No. 2 Florida Gators (10-1) on Tuesday, March 1st at 4pm in what will be certainly one of the most competitive matches of the season.

"We will enjoy this for a day and definitely take the momentum into our battle with the Gators on Tuesday afternoon," Hyde concluded. "We can't wait to lace it up again."

'Noles Drop Match To Bulls.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

TAMPA, FL Ė The No. 22 Florida State womenís tennis team (4-4) couldnít figure out the No. 55 South Florida Bulls (3-7) for the second straight year as the Bulls defeated the Seminoles 5-2 in a difficult road match played at the USF Varsity Courts on Sunday afternoon.

'Noles Bounce Back Against UCF.

Florida State defeated the Central Florida Knights 6-1 at the UCF Tennis Complex.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

ORLANDO, FL - The No. 36 Florida State women's tennis team (5-4, 1-1) bounced back after two tough losses to soundly defeat the Central Florida Knights (5-6) by a 6-1 score during the Seminoles second road match in four days at the UCF Tennis Complex on Wednesday afternoon.

"The girls did a great job of taking care of business today," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "After suffering a tough loss against USF a few days ago, we needed a solid win under our belts heading into our upcoming ACC match against Clemson."

Unlike the match on Sunday against the Bulls, Florida State started this day off on the right foot this time winning the critical doubles point against the Knights. The sensational team of freshman Ruth Seaborne and sophomore Francesca Segarelli continued their strong play winning their doubles match against UCF's top tandem Genevieve Lorbergs and Courtney Griffith by a resounding 8-3 score. Sophomore Amy Sargeant and senior Katie Rybakova defeated UCF's duo of Alexis Rodriguez and Josephine Haraldson 8-4 to give the Seminoles the point in doubles.

In singles FSU needed to win on only three courts, but accomplished victories on the top five courts taking home the victory. Sophomore Francesca Segarelli played her first match on court number one, and it was a complete success as she defeated UCF's Alexis Rodriguez 6-2, 6-0. Senior Katie Rybakova continued her hot streak defeating Genevieve Lorbergs 6-2, 6-2 on court two. Fellow senior Federica Suess took home the victory on court three defeating the Knights Courtney Griffith 6-1, 6-0. Freshman phenom Ruth Seaborne racked up another win with a 6-1, 6-2 victory over UCF's Jenna Doerfler. Not to be outdone, sophomore Amy Sargeant continued her successful comeback from injury with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Josephine Haraldson.

While the victory was much needed for the team following two difficult losses to Florida and South Florida, the team knows there is little time to celebrate, as there are plenty of big matches up on the horizon.

"We have some very big matches on our radar in the coming weeks," said Hyde. "It is very important that we continue to take each match as it comes and continue to stay focused on making improvements and getting better every day. We still have a huge chunk of the season ahead of us, and we will stay focused on one game day at a time."

The Seminoles will now head home for a big ACC match against the No. 19 Clemson Tigers on Sunday, March 13 at 12:00 p.m. at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

"Our upcoming match against Clemson is big for us," added Hyde. "We need to rally the support of our fans on Sunday and get our crowds behind us this weekend. Our best tennis is still ahead of us."

Tigers Top 'Noles, 5-2.

Florida State falls 5-2 to No. 19 Clemson despite winning the point in doubles and the first set on the top four courts.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 36 Florida State women's tennis team (5-5, 1-2) came just a few points away from perhaps its biggest victory of the 2011 season, but the No. 19 Clemson Tigers (11-5, 1-2) staged a dramatic comeback to defeat the Seminoles in a hard fought 5-2 loss at the Seminoles Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

The Seminoles began the day firing on all cylinders by winning the doubles point with victories on two of three courts. Sophomore Noemie Scharle and Federica Suess started off the action with an 8-2 victory over Clemson's Maria Belaya and Nelly Ciolkowski on court two. Clemson's No. 3 nationally ranked team of Josipa Bek and Keri Wong responded with an 8-5 victory on court one over the Seminoles young duo of freshman Ruth Seaborne and sophomore Francesca Segarelli. With the doubles point coming down to the wire in a tight battle on court three, sophomore Amy Sargeant and senior Katie Rybakova took control with a late surge to defeat Caroline Magnusson and Klara Vyskocilova 8-5 to take the doubles point.

In singles the Seminoles continued their strong play by winning the first set on each of the top four courts, but the Tigers would rally to win the second set on all six courts. In only her third match on court one this season, sensational sophomore Francesca Segarell, came just a few points away from defeating No. 15 Josipa Bek 7-6 (7-5), 6-7 (7-4), 6-4. Despite winning their first sets, Scharle and Rybakova also suffered difficult losses on courts two and three respectively as the Tigers No. 58 Keri Wong and Nelly Ciolkowski came back to win in three sets. Senior Federica Suess battled hard in three sets as well and came away with a big upset win over No. 104 Klara Vyskocilova 6-4, 1-6, 6-4. Freshman Ruth Seaborne and sophomore Amy Sargeant would both fall in two sets as the Tigers claimed victories in five of the six singles matches.

The loss was a difficult one for the Seminoles who were seeking their first win over Clemson in over a decade, with the last win dating back to 2001. Overall the Tigers lead the all-time series record against FSU 19-8. While the loss to Clemson is a tough one for the team, Hyde plans to have her players focused on their upcoming matches.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 35 Florida State women's tennis team (6-5, 1-2) came away with an important victory Thursday afternoon as they defeated the Georgia State Panthers (9-2) at the Seminoles Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

The Seminoles began the day on a strong note by winning the doubles point with victories on two of the three courts.

Sensational sophomore Francesca Segarelli would end the day by rallying in the second and third sets to defeat Tereza Lerova 4-6, 6-1, 6-0 on court one.

'Noles Take Hokies, 5-2.

The Seminoles bounce back from down 2-0 to win the next five points over Virginia Tech.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

BLACKSBURG, VA - The No. 35 Florida State (7-5, 2-2) women's tennis team continued their winning ways as the Seminoles defeated their second ranked ACC opponent- No. 57 Virginia Tech (9-8, 1-3) on Saturday afternoon at the Burrows-Burleson Tennis Center.

"The team needed a day just like today turned out to be," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "We were down the doubles point and then quickly down three first sets in singles. At one point during the match, things looked very grim for us. But just then, the girls created a tremendous momentum swing for themselves on 3 or 4 different courts and from that point on I felt like we were in control. We fought ourselves out of a pretty big hole today, and I could not be more proud of how the girls finished their matches today."

Seminole senior Federica Suess won the 100th mach of her career. It was quite the milestone for the senior captain.

"Fede got her 100th win today in typical Fede fashion," said Hyde. "Since her freshman year, she has always been someone who never dies out there on court. She was down a set, and down 1-5 in the second set. The easy thing to do in that scenario is roll over, but one thing I can say about Fede is that option is not for her. It hasn't been during her career, and that just won't change. She is a fighter and has the heart of champ."

After allowing Virginia Tech to control the doubles portion of the match with their three wins that earned them the doubles point going into singles, the Seminoles regrouped to strategize what steps were necessary in winning against the league foe. Senior Federica Suess and sophomore Noemie Scharle (Colmar-berg, Luxembourg) were the strongest doubles threat to the Hokies as they pushed the opposition 8-7.

"The indoor courts at VA Tech are by far the fastest surface we have ever seen, and the girls did a good job of making some adjustments for that," Hyde said. "It's a complete different ball game inside on slick courts and at a higher altitude than what is normal for us. Fortunately, the girls used no excuses today and competed very well, especially down the stretch."

It appeared like it was going to be a long day when Virginia Tech picked up its first and only win in singles as No. 1 Yazmin Hamza (Sr., Cairo Egypt) defeated Florida State's Francesca Segarelli, 6-1,6- The tide turned when Freshman Ruth Seaborne defeated Holly Johnson (Sr., Tallahassee, Fla.) in the No. 4 match, 6-2, 6-2.

It was all Seminoles from there on out as the Garnet and Gold won on five of the six courts. Scharle went to work again on singles winning her match over Tea Ivanovic (Fr., Antwer, Belgium) 6-3, 6-3. Senior leader Katie Rybakova followed suit taking the No. 2 match from Martha Blakely (Jr., Reading, Pa.), winning in three sets 0-6, 7-6, 6-1. To give the Seminoles the 3-2 lead.

"Katie was down a set and 3-5 down in the second set today," said Hyde. "To see your seniors dig themselves out of a hole like that and come out on top speaks volumes. The confidence to be gained from that, you really can't put a price tag on it."

Sophomore Amy Sargeant to the No. 6 spot, 6-2, 2-6, 7-5 Isel Martinez-Marcos (Fr., Esparreguera, Spain) to give the Seminoles the fourth point and the match. Senior Federica Suess finished the day in style winning her 100th match of her career over Shannon Betts (VT) 5-7, 7-5, 6-3 on court five.

'Noles Fall To Virginia, 5-2.

Florida State women's tennis team falls 5-2 on the road to the No. 17 Cavaliers.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - The No. 35 Florida State (7-6, 2-3) women's tennis team couldn't defeat their second straight ranked ACC opponent in No. 17 Virginia (13-4, 3-2) as they fell 5-2 in a hard fought Sunday afternoon match held at the Boyd Tinsley Courts at the Boar's Head Sports Club.

"I think we didn't get off to a very good start again today, and that basically set the tone for the rest of the match," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "We allowed them to take control early and we were never able to recover."

For the second straight day Florida State got off to a slow start as Virginia took a 1-0 lead by winning the valuable doubles point. The nation's No. 72 doubles team Lindsey Hardenbergh and Erin Vierra started off the action by defeating the Seminole's talented tandem of sophomore Noemie Scharle and senior Federica Suess 8-2. Caryssa Peretz (Cherry Hill, N.J.) and Maria Fuccillo defeated senior Katie Rybakova and sophomore Amy Sargeant 8-2 to win the doubles point. Freshman Ruth Seaborne and sophomore Francesca Segarelli played the nations No. 20 tandem of Emily Fraser and Hana Tomljanovic hard, but eventually fell 8-4.

The match wouldn't get any easier for the Seminoles in singles as Virginia took four straight victories to push the lead to 5-0. Amy Sargeant was unable to finish her match in the six spot as Maria Fuccillo earned the Cavs their second point winning 6-2, 3-0.

A day after winning the 100th match of her career, Federica Suess fell to the Cavs Caryssa Peretz 6-1, 6-3. Virginia would then make the victory official winning on the top court as No. 71 Lindsey Hardenbergh defeated Florida State's Francesca Segarelli, 6-0, 6-2. Virginia would earn their final point as No. 55 Emily Fraser edged No. 66 Noemie Scharle 6-3, 6-4.

Although the match had already been decided, the Seminoles continued to fight as Ruth Seaborne defeated No. 80 Erin Vierra 6-3, 7-6 (10-8) in a hard fought match on court four. Katie Rybakova would fight back in her match against No. 96 Hana Tomljanovic to win 4-6, 7-6 (7-4), (10-5) to give the Seminoles another victory to end the afternoon.

"I was very proud of Ruthie and Katie today," said Hyde. "Both of them worked really hard to put two points on the board for us after the match was already decided. Every point matters out there, and I was pleased that they both kept their heads down and took care of their courts. That was very important for both of them."

Despite the loss Florida State holds the all-time series against Virginia 18-6, with the last victory for the Garnet and Gold coming at home in 2010 with a 5-2 victory.

"We have another very big ACC weekend coming up, and at home," said Hyde. "We are still in the process of finding our stride out there and working through being consistent performers day in and day out. We are in the middle of the process and each win and loss we have is getting us there."

'Noles Fall To Wolfpack, 4-3.

The Florida State women's team fell 4-3 in a hard fought match against NC State.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 34 Florida State (7-7, 2-4) women's tennis team fought hard to the end, but could not quite pull out enough points to defeat the No. 36 North Carolina State Wolfpack (11-5, 2-4) on a sunny Friday afternoon at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

"Credit to NC State, they did a great job, they were composed and fought very hard," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "They were just the better team on this day, by a point."

NC State jumped off to a strong start winning the first two matches in doubles. The Seminoles duo of Katie Rybakova and Amy Sargeant led the entire way in the final doubles match on court three, but did not finish the match relinquishing a 7-6 lead.

"Doubles was crucial for us today," said Hyde. "Starting off by losing the doubles point at this time of year really puts you in a situation that is not preferable. Unfortunately I think that did hurt us, and was potentially the deciding factor in this match. At the same time, I think we had every opportunity to take care of things in singles and we just came up a little short."

After allowing NC State to control the doubles portion of the match, the Seminoles gained momentum in singles as sophomore Amy Sargeant defeated the Wolfpack's Christy Sipes 6-3, 6-1. The Wolfpack would bounce back as senior Federica Suess fell on court five to Lenka Hojckova 6-3, 6-3.

NC State picked up its third point as No. 29 Sanaa Bhambri defeated sophomore Francesca Segarelli 6-4, 7-6 (9-7) on court one. The Wolfpack would then finish off the match when freshman Ruth Seaborne dropped the second and third sets to NC State's Joelle Kissell 2-6, 6-1, 6-1. The loss snapped a three match winning streak for Seaborne.

Despite the loss, the Seminoles would never quit. After losing the first set, sophomore Noemie Scharle fought back from down 3-0 in the second set to pull off the comeback win over NC State's Tatiana Illova winning 4-6, 6-4, 3-0.

Senior Katie Rybakova also dug in deep and won a very competitive match against the NC State's No. 83 Sandhya Nagaraj 7-6 (7-4), 4-6, 6-2 to pick up her team leading 18th victory. The victory was Rybakova's fourth consecutive victory and second straight over a top 100 opponent.

"I was happy for the three girls that did get wins," said Hyde. "Amy is starting to get her form back, and that is exciting for her to see and feel and for the team as we move through this season. Not only is it big for Amy, but as Katie and Noemie continue to gain confidence is only going to help this team down the road as well."

"Right now we are just going to focus on the positives, but we have to be ready to play our best tennis against Wake Forest on Sunday," said Hyde. "Wake is a very good team and we expect they are going to be very competitive. We still have a lot to prove, and right now we just need to continue to take the positives with us as every match comes and goes."

'Noles Top Demon Deacons, 6-1.

The Florida State women's tennis team bounces back with a big 6-1 win over Wake Forest.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

TALLAHASSEE, FL - After dropping two straight ACC matches, the No. 34 Florida State women's tennis team (8-7, 3-4) bounced back in a big way with a dominating 6-1 victory over the No. 50 Wake Forest Demon Deacons (6-11, 0-7) on a sunny Sunday afternoon at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

The resurgent Seminoles jumped off to a strong start by winning all three matches in doubles. It was quite the confidence boost for a team that had failed to win the critical doubles point during the past three matches.

"The girls did a fantastic job today," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "I think we set the tone early in doubles and I think that made a very big difference for us heading into singles. It was good to see them come out and play solid, fundamental doubles and I believe that really got the ball rolling for us."

The biggest win in doubles came on court one as senior Federica Suess and sophomore Noemie Scharle defeated the nation's No. 14 doubles tandem Kathryn Talbert and Kayla Duncan to give the Seminoles the point in doubles.

"After the loss against NC State we talked about how we needed to step up and play better as a team, and I think we really did that today," added senior Katie Rybakova. "I think in doubles we played much better, and with much more intensity."

After controlling the doubles portion of the match, the Seminoles gained more momentum early in singles, winning the first set on five of the six courts. Sophomore Francesca Segarelli was the first Seminole to win, making quick work of the Demon Deacons Kathryn Talbert 6-2, 6-1 on court two.

"Fran did a great job for us today," said Hyde. "I mixed up one and two today and Fran just took care of business. She had to be a little patient today by offsetting some pretty heavy balls, and she did a fantastic job of that."

Scharle was the second 'Nole to finish, as she was victorious for the second straight match by defeating Wake's Emilee Malvehy 6-2, 6-2 on court three. The momentum continued for the Seminoles as sophomore Amy Sargeant defeated the Demon Deacons Anna Mydlowska 6-3, 6-4 on court six to give Florida State the deciding point in the match.

"I think our play in doubles certainly carried over into singles," said Hyde. Up and down the line I think everyone did a really good job. Amy in particular came out guns a blazing. She competed extremely hard and brought and unbelievable energy that I think that really helped us out."

Rybakova, ranked No. 42 in the country, continued her hot streak by defeating Wake's No. 24 Martina Pavelec 6-3 on court one. The win marked Rybakova's fifth consecutive victory, including her third straight over an ITA top 100 opponent. Overall Rybakova leads the team with 19 victories on the season.

"It's great to have seniors step up like that," said Hyde. "I am very proud of Katie, and she has worked really hard to be where she is now. That consistency from her is very important, especially in her senior year. That is what we hope from our seniors is that consistent play, and we just hope she can continue to play that way through the end of the year."

Fellow senior Suess quickly followed suit, defeating Wake Forest's Ryann Cutillo 6-4, 6-2 for the 101st victory of her career, second most in program history.

The Seminoles suffered only one loss on what was otherwise an extremely successful afternoon, as freshman Ruth Seaborne fell in a hard fought with Wake's Ryann Cutillo 7-6 (7-3), 7-6 (7-5).

"Today was a huge lift for us before we head into another big weekend on the road and we are definitely going to try to take some of that momentum with us," said Hyde. "Overall it was a just good day. I am really proud of the girls, they did a fantastic job."

'Noles Defeat Maryland, 4-3.

The Florida State women's tennis team held on for a big road victory over No. 26 Maryland to even their conference record. By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com COLLEGE PARK, MD - The No. 31 Florida State women's tennis team (9-7, 4-4) battled hard from start to finish to earn a second straight ACC victory, defeating the No. 26 Maryland Terrapins (12-6, 2-5) in a close 4-3 victory on Friday afternoon at the indoor Maryland Tennis Center.

"The girls did a fantastic job today," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "The level of tennis was as high today as it's been this season. I feel like things are slowly starting to come together and that the girls are starting to step up their level of play with each day of competition we have. They really did a fine job today against a very good Maryland team.

After falling in the top doubles match against Maryland's No. 39 tandem of Christina Sanchez-Quintanar and Jordaan Sanford by an 8-5 score, the Seminoles bounced back by winning the next two matches on courts two and three. Sophomore Francesca Segarelli and freshman Ruth Seaborne defeated Maryland's Welma Luus and Ana Belzunce 8-5. Senior Katie Rybakova and sophomore Amy Sargeant then sealed the doubles point with an 8-3 victory over the Terrapins Julia Huschke and Jordan Hansbrough on court three.

"The difference maker in today's match was definitely doubles," said Hyde. "Getting that doubles point early was crucial for us and it ended up being the deciding factor in the match."

After winning the doubles portion of the match, the Seminoles struggled early in singles, losing the first set on four of the six courts. Rybakova, ranked No. 42 in the country, had her winning streak of five matches snapped by Maryland's top player, No. 32 Sanchez-Quintanar 6-2, 6-1 on court one.

The Seminoles quickly regained momentum as Sargeant defeated Huschke 6-1, 6-2 for her third consecutive victory on court six. However, it was short lived as Suess fell to Maryland's Christina Stancu 6-1, 6-2 to tie the match at two points each.

After falling in her first set, Seaborne battled back in the second and third sets to defeat Luus 4-6, 6-1, 7-5 on court four. Segarelli then fought back in another three-set battle against Belzunce to win 6-4, 3-6, 6-1 on court two. In the day's final match, No. 62 Scharle, couldn't quite complete the comeback after battling back in the second set, falling against Sanford 7-6 (7-3), 2-6, 6-3 on court three.

"Fran and Noemie were playing side by side today, and at one point in the match I started to smile because they both were playing as good as I've seen them play in weeks," Hyde said. "At the same time, Amy was also playing confidently and was completely dominant on her court. Ruthie was in a nail biter on the backside and pulled out a 7-5 third set win to put us at three points. Fran played so well to clinch the match and she completely wore her opponent down. It was a battle all around, and it feels very good to be on the winning side of that."

With the victory Florida State extends its lead in the all-time series to a strong 17-2 record over Maryland. Florida State has not lost to Maryland since Hyde's second year with the program in 2006 which they lost in a 4-3 nail biter in College Park.

"It was a really good day for our team, and the girls needed another win like this for their confidence," said Hyde. "The confidence is growing, you can see it growing and they can feel it growing within themselves. We are very much on the right track and will enjoy this win for the night."

'Noles Clip Eagles, 4-3.

Senior Federica Seuss clinches the match-winning point and a place in Florida State women's tennis history.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

WEYMOUTH, MA - The red-hot, No. 31 Florida State women's tennis team (10-7, 5-4 ACC) won their third consecutive ACC match by defeating the No. 46 Boston College Eagles (7-12, 2-7 ACC) by a score of 4-3 on a brisk Sunday afternoon at the Eagles indoor courts of the Weymouth Club. The contest was called early after senior Federica Suess won the match deciding point to give the Seminoles a 4-1 lead. The victory was the 102nd of Suess's career, tying a Florida State school record for all-time singles wins.

"The girls had another a great match today," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "This was a big road trip for us at the end of the season, it's definitely one of the harder trips on our schedule, and I think it went as well as we could have hoped."

From the very start it was the Seminoles day as they won the critical doubles point for the third straight match, defeating the Eagles on two courts and leading 8-7 on the final court before it was called to expedite the match.

"Once again doubles set the tone for us very early in the match and it made a tremendous difference for us going into singles," Hyde said. "Its so important for our confidence to head into singles with that doubles point under our belts."

Senior Katie Rybakova and sophomore Amy Sargeant started off the action by winning the first win in doubles with an 8-5 victory over the Eagles Katharine Attwell and Katarina Gajic on court three.

Suess and sophomore Noemie Scharle then sealed the doubles point victory as they defeated Boston College's top duo Erina Kikuchi and Veronica Corning 9-7 on court one.

Sophomore Francesca Segarelli and freshman Ruth Seaborne looked to finish the clean sweep in doubles as they fought back from behind to take a 8-7 lead over the Eagles Alex Kelleher and Olga Khmylev on court two, but the match was called early to move the contest forward.

"Katie and Sarge took an early lead on their court and that gives all the other doubles courts some confidence early in the match. Noemie and Fede did a great job of fighting from behind to clinch the doubles point for us. Fran and Ruth were down 4-7, and when Fede and Fran clinched they were actually ahead 8-7, so for both of those doubles teams to come from behind and fight their way back made a tremendous difference today."

The momentum continued for the Seminoles in singles as Seaborne defeated Boston College's Corning 6-1, 6-2 in straight sets on court four. Boston College would strike back as Kikuchi defeated Segarelli on court two in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4.

The Seminoles would extend their lead again as Rybakova, ranked No. 42 in the country, fought back after losing the second set to defeat the Eagles Kelleher 6-0, 3-6, 6-0 at the No. 1 singles spot. The victory was Rybakova's team leading 20th of the season, and marks the 99th victory of her career, second most in school history. She has won six over her past seven matches in singles.

Not to be outdone, fellow senior Suess finished off the day with a career milestone, winning the fourth and match-winning point, as well as tying the Florida State school record for career wins in singles, defeating Olga Khmylev 7-6 (8-6), 6-3. The victory ties Suess with her former teammates Jessica Sucupira and Lauren McFarlane at 102 career victories in singles, the most in program history.

"Fede's career here has been phenomenal," Hyde said. "She has been one of the most consistent performers I have ever had the opportunity to coach. It's amazing for her to have her name in the record books as one of the most successful players in the history of the program. She has been one of the hardest workers we have ever had, and its no surprise that she was able to reach the all-time wins list along with a couple of her former teammates."

Following Suess's victory the match was called early due to a prior agreement between teams due to travel considerations. Scharle, ranked No. 62 in the country, was leading her match against the No. 113 player in the country in the Eagles Katarina Gajic, winning the first set 7-6 (11-9). Sargeant's match was also decided early, as she was aiming to win her fourth straight match, and fifth out of six, as she led Katharine Attwell 7-5 through the first set.

With the victory Florida State extends its lead in the all-time series to an impressive 7-0 unblemished record over Boston College.

"We are certainly going to enjoy the wins from this road trip," said Hyde. "We need to make sure to spend some time in the training room working on recovery this week to make sure we are ready for two top five teams in North Carolina and Duke. Senior weekend is going to be a very special weekend for us. We are looking forward to the opportunity to play against two top teams in our league. It's definitely time to keep stepping up the level of play."

'Noles Stun No. 4 UNC, 4-2.

The Florida State women's tennis team earns a big statement win over No. 4 North Carolina.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The red hot No. 27 Florida State (11-7, 6-4) women's tennis came away with the biggest win of the season by defeating the No. 4 North Carolina (20-5, 9-2) 4-2 on a sunny Friday afternoon at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. The win marked the highest ranked opponent the Seminoles have defeated in program history.

"There is definitely a lot of emotion that comes from a win like this", said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "A win like this, at this time of the year, is exactly what we want to see. We have had a lot of adversity this semester, people coming back from injuries and some other family issues, so it's really nice to have a big win like this as we slowly start to wind down our regular season play. The girls have really worked hard to get where they are right now and the belief is running deep."

The win marked the Seminoles fourth straight ACC victory and the first win over a top ten opponent this season.

"We are definitely getting there," Hyde said. "We are starting to play better tennis and I told the girls earlier this semester, respect the process. It's all about the process. We don't want to peak too early, we don't want to peak too late, but we are definitely starting to play our best tennis at the right time of the year."

Florida State began the match with a strong start in doubles as Sophomore Francesca Segarelli and freshman Ruth Seaborne defeated the nation's No. 47 doubles tandem Zoe De Bruycker and Lauren McHale 8-2 on court two. Senior Federica Suess and sophomore Noemie Scharle doubles match was the second to conclude as they fell in a hard fought match against UNC's top doubles tandem Shinann Featherston and Jelena Durisic 8-5 on court one.

With the doubles portion of the match coming down to a tight battle on court three, the Seminoles exciting duo of senior Katie Rybakova and sophomore Amy Sargeant came from behind to force a tie-breaker against UNC's Haley Hemm and Tessa Lyons. Rybakova and Sargeant again showed incredible heart fighting back from down 4-0 in the tie breaker win the match 9-8 (10-8) and clinch the critical doubles point.

"We know doubles this time of year decides the big matches," said Hyde. "We have become a much better doubles team in recent weeks, and it's making a world of difference. We always say doubles wins championships, and it really does. The momentum of our doubles right now is really carrying over into our singles."

The Seminoles continued to gain momentum in singles as Francesca Segarelli made quick work of No. 100 Jelena Durisic 6-0, 6-1 on court two. Amy Sargeant would push the Seminoles lead to 3-0 as she defeated the Tarheels Tessa Lyons 6-1, 6-3.

North Carolina would bounce back as Katie Rybakova fell 6-3, 6-4 to No. 14 Zoe De Bruycker on court one and fellow senior Federica Suess fell to Lauren McHale 6-4, 6-3 to court five to narrow the score to 3-2 Seminoles lead.

With the match coming down to battles on courts three and four, Florida State picked up the fourth and final point needed for the win as Noemie Scharle defeated No. 88 Shinann Featherston 7-6 (7-5), 6-3 to give the Seminoles the monumental victory.

"I couldn't believe it," said Scharle. "I was about to cry at the end of the match. I saw Ruth over on court four still battling and I knew I just had to hang in there. Jen told me to just focus on my court, so I just hung in there and knew I had to pull it out for the team."

"This was my probably my biggest win and the biggest win we have had as a team," added Scharle. "I don't think we have ever beaten a team ranked so high. For me it was huge to finally clinch a match for my team. It's such an incredible feeling."

Ruth Seaborne's match against North Carolina's Gina Suarez-Malaguti was retired early after Scharle sealed the Seminoles victory.

The Seminoles will not have much time to celebrate as they play the last home match of the regular season against No. 3 Duke (21-2, 10-0) on Sunday, April 17 at 12:00 p.m. at the Scott Speicher Tennis Courts. The first fans will receive free FSU Tennis Car Magnets. Fans are encouraged to come to Sunday's match early as Florida State will be honoring seniors Katie Rybakova and Federica Suess before the match.

"It's Fede and Katie's last regular season home match and there are always going to be emotions tied in with that," said Hyde. "We won't get caught up in the emotions of the day. Their minds are right and ready to play the number three team in the country and another opportunity is on our radar."

'Noles Shock No. 3 Duke, 4-2.

The Florida State women's tennis team caps off an incredible weekend by defeating No. 3 Duke.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Riding on a huge wave of momentum from their big win over No. 4 North Carolina on Friday, the streaking No. 27 Florida State (12-7, 7-4) women's tennis came away with once again the biggest win of the season by defeating the No. 3 Duke Blue Devils (20-3, 10-1) on a sunny Sunday afternoon at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. The victory over the Blue Devils now goes into the record books as the highest ranked opponent the Seminoles have defeated in program history. On what was already a very special day, senior Katie Rybakova and head coach Jennifer Hyde garnered the 100th wins of their careers as well.

"It's not often that you go against the number three and four nationally ranked teams in the country and beat them both in the same weekend," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "That just doesn't happen every day. This team played like absolute warriors all weekend long and all the credit in the world goes to those young ladies. The fight we have within this team, you cannot teach it. It's either there or its not and I could not be more proud of the team for the fight they showed this entire weekend. They left their hearts out there."

Known as a perennial powerhouse in tennis, Duke came into the match having not lost a single game in conference all season and that was well represented by having all six players ranked among the top 80 by the ITA in singles. The day began looking like it would be the Blue Devils day as Florida State started off the match with a slow start falling in doubles to give Duke a 1-0 lead. The Blue Devils would then push their lead to 2-0 as No. 74 Rachael Kahan won 6-0, 6-2 over senior Federica Suess. With their backs against the wall, the tide began to turn for Florida State as the feisty Seminoles won the next four matches and earned the statement victory.

"We played with such fight and I am so proud of everyone," said Rybakova. "We stayed in there, fought for every point, and it goes to show hard work does pay off. We worked so hard in the fall, we worked hard all spring and we were just wondering when this type of success was going to come and finally here is the result of all our hard work. Now we are just going to keep our heads down as we have all season, work hard, and hopefully be successful at the ACC's next week."

The win marks the Seminoles fifth straight ACC victory and their second straight victory over a top ten opponent.

"We are definitely on a wave of momentum right now," Hyde said. "Especially since the win against North Carolina on Friday, everyone clearly sees the process of our season coming to fruition, and everyone recognizes the improvements which are visible in every spot in our lineup. The belief is stronger now than it has ever been and with two momentous wins like this under their belts, our minds are right where they need to be as we head in to the ACC Championships this coming weekend."

It was quite the memorable day for several members of the team as head coach Jennifer Hyde and senior Katie Rybakova both won the 100th matches of their careers.

"I didn't realize that the 100 wins mark was on the radar, but I am just so very proud it could happen on this day, with these seniors, here at home at FSU, and on this stage," said Hyde. "It's a pretty big way for us to get it done by beating the number three team in the country. This day will always stand out as special and for many reasons beyond the hundredth win. I hope I am fortunate enough to get another hundred here in my career. It's such a big moment for all of us."

The momentum began to turn as Rybakova became the first Seminole to win on the afternoon as she defeated No. 38 Nadine Fahoum 6-2, 6-4 on court one. With the 100th win of her career Rybakova becomes just the fourth Seminole in program history to eclipse the hundred win milestone. Rybakova now joins current teammate Federica Suess along with former teammates Lauren Macfarlane and Jessica Sucupria in the record books as the only Seminoles to reach such a feat.

"Records are great, but I am just glad that I could contribute to the team winning today" said Rybakova. "To me it's an accomplishment to join Federica and be amongst Lauren and Jessica, so in that sense it's a great honor."

Freshman Ruth Seaborne was the next Seminole to win as she defeated No. 58 Elizabeth Plotkin 7-6 (7-1), 6-2 on court two. Seaborne's victory tied the match at two all and the momentum clearly heading in the Seminoles direction. The momentum became an avalanche as sophomore Francesca Segarelli gave the Seminoles the lead by defeating No. 80 Ellah Nze 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 on court two.

"I knew that I needed to give confidence to the team that we can actually do this and then it just clicked," said Segarelli. "I kind of checked out during the second set and knew I somehow had to find a way to win. The third set came I knew I had to pull it out for us to win. It's such a great feeling. I really cannot even describe it. It's so unbelievable and I still cannot believe it. We just beat the number three and four teams in the nation."

"You looked up and down the courts and realized we are here and we are not leaving," added Segarelli. "We are going to fight and there was always confidence that we could pull it off. I think the fact that we beat UNC made a big difference. We have a lot of respect for both teams, but we knew we could do this."

With the match coming down to battles on courts three and six, Florida State picked up the fourth and final point needed for the win as sophomore Amy Sargeant defeated No. 79 Mary Clayton 7-6 (7-1), 6-7 (7-4), 6-3 to give the Seminoles the enormous victory. Being able to finish off the win was extra sweet for Sargeant who recently came back from injury.

"After being out for nine months, to come back and help us win this match is just a dream come true," said Sargeant. "It's a special day for everyone. Words cannot describe how I am feeling, it's just unreal. What Jen and Oliver teach us is to fight and have heart and that is one thing this team has that no other team can even come close too. I am just so proud of the girls because it's not just me that won, it was everybody. We proved to everyone today we are a top ten team."

With the match already decided, Noemie Scharle's match against No. 18 Reke Zsilinska was called early after Sargeant sealed the Seminoles victory.

Having now played in perhaps the last home match of their careers, the win for Rybakova and Suess will provide them with a lasting memory to treasure once their time at Florida State is finally over.

"I wish there were words to describe the feeling, but I am kind of speechless right now," said Ryabakova. "I am so proud of everybody. We played as a team, we played with one heart and it was time to go out there and show everyone how we can play. I believe whole heartedly in this team and feel we can go all the way. We can beat anyone in the country and this will be huge for our confidence heading into the ACC's. I knew all along we could do it. We just had to step on the court and show it to everyone else."

Senior Federica Suess becomes the all-time leader in career singles victories with 103.

'Noles Advance To Second Round.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

CARY, NC - After a two and half hour rain delay, the No. 5 seed Florida State (13-7, 8-4) came up victorious over No. 12 seed Wake Forest (6-16, 0-12) winning 4-0 during the first round of the ACC Championships held at the Cary Tennis Center. The Seminoles will now make its 18th quarterfinal's appearance as the group will look for revenge as they face No. 4 seed Virginia (18-6, 7-4) on Friday.

"It's nice to have the first round of the tournament under our belts," said head coach Jennifer Hyde "The first match is sometimes one of the more difficult ones to get through and I think they did a good job today taking care of business. We started off a little slow in doubles but we found our rhythm and it's nice to walk away with the win as we head into a big day tomorrow against Virginia."

After a slightly slow start the Seminoles finally put away the Demon Deacons by winning two of three matches in doubles to clinch the first point of the match. The Seminoles then carried momentum into singles as senior Federica Suess (Ludwigshafen, Germany) was the first player to win today her match 6-3, 6-0 over Wake's Anna Mydlowska on court five. With the win Suess breaks the all-time singles wins record of 102 wins previously held by her former teammates Lauren Macfarlane and Jessica Sucupira.

"It is huge for Fede to be the sole owner of the most wins in our program history," Hyde said. "What an accomplishment for her and what a great way to do it, at her final ACC Tournament. I couldn't be more proud or happy for her. Her name is at the top of a very impressive and longstanding list."

"I don't really think about it much but it's certainly nice to accomplish something like that," added Suess. "Obviously there have been a lot of successful athletes to have played here and to have that record is pretty neat. It's great that I get to share this honor with Katie, Lauren and Jessica. We are all so close to each other and I feel like we have really helped start this program going so that is pretty cool we are all up there together in the record books."

Fellow senior Katie Rybakova (Coral Springs, Florida) was the second Seminole to win in singles as she defeated No. 37 Martina Pavelec (WF) 6-3, 6-2 to notch the 101st win of her career. Rybakova is now one win away from tying Macfarlane and Sucupira for second place in the record books and only one of four Seminoles to win 100 singles matches in their career.

"This is my favorite time of the year personally and I think for all of us this is the fun tournament," added Rybakova. "It's really competitive regardless of whom we play and I feel like we all came out today and did our job. We played calm and with confidence that we gained from the previous weekend. We are really excited about the opportunity to redeem ourselves against Virginia tomorrow."

With the fourth and final point needed to clinch the win, sophomore Amy Sargeant (Walsall, England) came up big for the Seminoles for the second straight match by clinching the match point. The sophomore defeated Brigita Bercyte 6-4, 6-0 on court six.

"I really like clinching," said Sargeant. "I enjoy the pressure that comes along with it. It gives me more incentive to win and more determination to get off the court. To know you're the one who clinched the match is a really good feeling."

"I think we just keep getting better and better," continued Sargeant. "Each match we are improving in different areas and I just think the confidence we have, we can just run with it. We just need to focus on tomorrow on Virginia. It will be a tough match but as along we stay together and keep fighting I think we are capable of anything."

The Seminoles are set for a 12 p.m. match time against No. 4 seed Virginia tomorrow, Friday, April 22. Florida State fell to Virginia 5-2 in Charlottesville, Va. earlier this season, but only a week after the loss the Seminoles began a season's best six match winning streak which they will bring into tomorrow's match.

"We definitely have some solid momentum on our side right now and we have to reach back on our successes from the past few weeks and take that with us into our match against Virginia," said Hyde. "We expect the match to push our level even higher, as most ACC matches do. We are going to get some good rest tonight, eat and hydrate well and as soon as our feet hit the ground tomorrow we will be ready to go."

'Noles Advance To ACC Semi's.

The Florida State women's tennis team avenged themselves against No. 11 Virginia to advance to ACC Semifinals for fourth straight season.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

CHAPEL HILL, NC - After a second day that consisted of a two and half hour rain delay, the No. 5 seed Florida State (14-7, 9-4) once again came up victorious, this time 4-3 over fourth seeded No. 11 Virginia (18-7, 7-5) during the second round of the ACC Championships held at the University of North Carolina Cone-Kenfield Indoor Tennis Center . The Seminoles, who began the tournament as one of seven ACC schools ranked inside the ITA's top 20 will now make the conference Semifinal's for the fourth straight season joining the league's top three seeded team's No. 3 Duke (22-3, 11-1), No. 5 North Carolina (21-5, 10-2) and No. 6 Miami (17-5, 10-2). Weather permitting the 'Noles will face the top seeded Blue Devils on Saturday, April 22 at 10 a.m. at the Cary Tennis Center.

"It was another huge team effort today, which at this point in the season you must have to be successful (in the post-season)," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "The girls continue to do that and continue to play at a very high level."

The win was sweet redemption for the Seminoles who fell 5-2 to Virginia last month in Charlottesville, Va. but have since won seven straight ACC matches including three wins in the past week over top ranked teams (North Carolina, Duke and Virginia). Quite the feat considering the ACC is easily the deepest and most talented league in the nation.

"It's nice to avenge our loss from Virginia from earlier in the year," said Hyde. "We were a very different team back then from where we are now. It was especially rewarding for us to take care of business indoors. This team continues to have a warrior mentality."

The Seminoles will certainly need to continue to bring their "A" game as the remaining teams in the tournament are all ranked among the six teams in the nation and are considered top contenders to be selected as No. 1 seeds in the upcoming NCAA Tournament.

"We are half way to where we want to be this weekend," continued Hyde. "We still have a ton of work ahead of us but we will certainly enjoy this win. We have a quick turn-around and play again at 10 a.m. tomorrow morning and this team will be ready to go for another day of battle. We are excited to get back after again Duke tomorrow."

After falling in doubles the Seminoles would quickly turn the momentum around in singles as they won the first set in four of the six singles matches. Talented sophomore, No. 56 Noemie Scharle (Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg) would be the first Seminole to win her match as she defeated UVA's on court three to even the match at 1-1.

Virginia would quickly return the favor as the Cavs top ranked player, No. 28 Lindsey Hardenbergh defeated senior leader, No. 35 Katie Rybakova (Coral Springs, Fla.) 6-2, 6-3 on court one.

The Seminoles would again even the score as red-hot sophomore Amy Sargeant (Walsall, England) won against the Cavaliers Maria Fuccillo 7-5, 6-2 on court six. The match was the seventh victory in the last eight matches for Sargeant who returned half way through this season from hip surgery that had sidelined her for nearly nine months. Since returning from injury the super sophomore has clinched two matches and won ACC Player of the Week during the past two weeks.

Virginia would once again assert itself by taking the lead as sophomore Francesca Segarelli (Rome, Italy) fell to No. 55 Emily Fraser 7-6 (7-2), 6-4 on court two. With their backs against the wall, it would be all Florida State from that point forward as the two remaining Seminoles were battling in the third sets on courts four and five.

Senior Federica Suess (Ludwigshafen, Germany) was the first of the two win as she defeated UVA's Caryssa Peretz 6-4, 0-6, 6-3 on court five to even the overall score at 3-3. The victory was sweet redemption for Suess who fell to Peretz earlier in the season. The victory was the 104th of Suess's career, the most singles wins in program history.

The final match then came down to court four as freshman Ruth Seaborne (London, England) was still battling in the third set against Virginia's No. 104 Erin Vierra. Seaborne would dominate the third set sealing the victory 6-2, 3-6, 6-2 as the Seminoles finally avenged themselves against Virginia who had defeated the Seminoles earlier this season at the Cavs indoor courts in Charlottesville, Va.

"Ruth clinching was very big," said Hyde. "She was just nails there at the end. Oliver did a great job with her and coaching courts four through six today. He helped get them through their battles today. It was another big team effort and to do it again after losing that crucial doubles point says a lot about the character of this team."

The Seminoles are set for a 10 a.m. match time against No. 1 seed Duke tomorrow, Saturday, April 23 at the Cary Tennis Center. Florida State defeated Duke 4-2 in Tallahassee earlier this season and upset the defending national champion Blue Devils last season during the quarterfinals to prevent Duke from making the ACC Semifinals for the first time since 1986. Florida State who joins the ACC's top three seeded teams in the ACC Semifinals (No. 1 Duke, No. 2 North Carolina and No. 3 Miami) will bring in a lot of confidence riding a season's best seven match winning streak into tomorrow's match.

"NC State did a good job of pushing Duke to the limit today and they got a 4-3 win in the third set so we know they also had a tough match today just like we did," said Hyde. "We are not going to worry about Duke avenging their loss to us last weekend because they are the number one seed and we are not. We can continue to play loose, play free and enjoy being the underdogs again."

Noles Head To ACC Championship.

The Florida State women's tennis team defeated No. 3 Duke 4-3 to advance to the ACC Championship.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

CARY, NC - After a third straight day of prolonged rain delays, the red-hot Florida State women's tennis team (15-7, 10-4) once again found their fight as they defeated top-seeded, No. 3 Duke (22-4, 11-2) at the Cary Tennis Center. The Seminoles, who began the tournament as the five seed and one of seven ACC teams ranked inside the ITA's top 20, will now advance to the ACC Championship for just the second time in program history. The Seminoles are riding a season best eight match winning streak and will face two-seed, No. 5 North Carolina (22-5, 11-2) tomorrow, Sunday, April 24 for a shot at the ACC Championship crown.

The Seminoles advance to the ACC Championship Final for the first time since 1994 where they fell short against the Blue Devils. Duke came into today's semifinal match having lost only one conference match all season, when they fell to Florida State 4-2 last Sunday in Tallahassee. Defeating Duke for a second time this season presented a very tall order for the Seminoles as the talented Blue Devils have all six players ranked among the top 90 by the ITA.

"The talent level in our league is so good and there is so much depth across the board," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "It sometimes boils down to which team is more willing to battle through and this team has had that willingness intact since we started on this journey. I am so pleased to see the girls put in so much work and finally put themselves in a position to win a title. The belief is running deep, and there is not one person on our roster who knows a limit yet. We are still climbing. We are really excited to get back out here tomorrow and put ourselves in position to win a title."

Undaunted by their opponent, the Seminoles came right out of the gates swinging as senior Katie Rybakova (Coral Springs, Florida) and sophomore Amy Sargeant (Walsall, England) were the first 'Noles to win on the afternoon defeating Duke's Mary Clayton and Monica Gorny 8-4 on court three.

The Blue Devils were quick to respond as their top tandem, No. 50 Rachael Kahan and Ellah Nze won 8-4 over senior Federica Suess (Ludwigshafen, Germany) and Noemie Scharle (Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg) on court one. Knowing how critical the doubles point can be the Seminoles fought right back as the No. 81 duo of sophomore Francesca Segarelli (Rome, Italy) and freshman Ruth Seaborne (London, England) upset the Blue Devils No. 51 tandem Nadine Fahoum and Hanna Mar 8-4 to give the Florida State the 1-0 lead heading into singles.

"We have talked all year about the importance of the doubles point," said Hyde. "During the last couple of matches we haven't quite played as well in doubles, but today the girls did a great job of turning that around. The doubles made all the difference in the world on this day. We know in these bigger matches that the doubles point is certainly helpful and I definitely think that got us started off on the right foot today."

Once singles began the momentum quickly turned back towards the Blue Devils favor as they won on courts five and six to take a 2-1 lead. Coming off the first match clinching performance of her career against Virginia the previous day, talented freshman Seaborne fought back and forth with Duke's No. 63 Elizabeth Plotkin and eventually pulled out the upset victory 5-7, 6-4, 6-3 on court four to tie the match at 2-2.

The Blue Devils would then retake the lead 3-2 as All-ACC sophomore Francesca Segarelli fell to Duke's No. 80 Ellah Nze 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 on court two. With the match coming down to third set battles on courts one and three, the momentum began to turn as No. 35 Rybakova with her back against the wall fought back from match point to defeat No. 36 Nadine Fahoum 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (9-7) on court one. With the 102nd win of her career ties former teammates Lauren Macfarlane and Jessica Sucupria for second place in all-time singles wins in the Seminole record books.

"It was a really close match, my opponent was a very competitive player and I am really glad that I could pull it off and get through a few mental lapses," said Rybakova. "It's just an amazing feeling. I keep going to back to it and thinking wow, it was so close, point for point and I am just so glad it worked out in my favor to get that final point. I believed Noemie full-heartedly just as I believe in everyone and it was just a incredible moment."

With all the momentum back on their side, Florida State quickly picked up the fourth and final point needed as sophomore, No. 56 Noemie Scharle's defeated No. 18 Reke Zsilinska 6-2, 1-6, 6-3 on court three to seal the victory. The win marks the Seminoles eighth straight victory, all of them coming against conference opponents including four victories over top ten opponent's during that stretch. Quite the feat considering the ACC is widely regarded the deepest and most talented conference in the nation.

"I was so exhausted from the match I didn't even realize at first that I had won," said Scharle. "I am so happy for everybody. Katie was fighting next to me and I was more nervous for her than myself. I felt really confident. I had a little trouble in the second set but after that I knew it was coming down to me so I just pulled myself together, hung in the match and finally was able to finish it."

While Florida State has a ton of momentum from their winning streak the past few weeks, it's not the streak but an inner belief in themselves that has gotten them this far.

"I don't feel like we are riding a high from this winning streak as much as we are full of confidence through the streak. That confidence and belief is priceless right now, and we will most definitely be taking those things into our final tomorrow," Hyde said. "I think there is a very big difference in that. A high is temporary but belief is permanent and this team believes there is no limit for them this year and that very clearly showed again today in their fight and in their play to beat a very good Duke team for a second time in a week."

'Noles Fall In ACC Championship Match.

Today's match snapped Florida State's season's best eight match winning streak.

CARY, NC - The Florida State women's tennis team (15-8, 10-4) magical run towards their first ever ACC Championship ended in heartbreaking defeat to No. 5 North Carolina (23-5, 11-2) on Sunday, April 24 at the Cary Tennis Center. The Seminoles, who began the tournament as the five seed and one of seven ACC teams ranked inside the ITA's top 20, won a season's best eight matches before having their winning streak snapped by the Tar Heels as they lost 4-3.

"I saw warriors out there all weekend and I saw a team playing with one heartbeat from start to finish," stated head coach Jennifer Hyde. "Although this loss stings and will for while, I could not be more proud of this team, and we have absolutely no reason to hang our heads in defeat. Our belief runs deep and there is still so much tennis ahead of us. I see no limits to what this team can accomplish in the NCAA Championships. I am so proud."

"I know that we did not win the ACC title today, but there is no doubt that the Florida State University was represented on court today by a group of true Champions," continued Hyde. "They competed all week at a level that was incomparable to any team I've ever seen. This includes my recollection of my senior year as a Seminole competing for the first ACC title back in 1994. I am humbled and proud to be among a group of such classy and competitive athletes."

It appeared it would be the Seminoles' day as they came right out of the gates swinging with sophomore Francesca Segarelli (Rome, Italy) and freshman Ruth Seaborne (London, England) defeating the Tar Heels' tandem of Tessa Lyons and Jelena Durisic to give Florida State their first victory in doubles. Senior Katie Rybakova (Coral Springs, Florida) and sophomore Amy Sargeant (Walsall, England) then defeated UNC's Gina Suarez-Malaguti and Zoe De Bruycker 8-4 on court three as the Seminoles took a 1-0 lead heading into singles.

Seniors Federica Suess (Ludwigshafen, Germany) and Noemie Scharle (Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg) did not finish their match against the Tar Heels No. 6 duo of Shinann Featherston and Lauren McHale on court one.

Once singles began the momentum quickly turned in favor towards the Tar Heels as they won the next three points on courts one, two and five to take a 3-1 lead. The Seminoles were not about to go down without a fight as Sargeant fought back after losing the first set to defeat Tessa Lyons 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 on court six to give the Seminoles their second point.

Coming down to third set battles on courts three and four, talented freshman Seaborne fought back and forth with UNC's Lauren McHale and eventually pulled out the victory 6-3, 5-7, 6-0 on court four to tie the match at 3-3.

With the momentum back on their side, Florida State had a fighting chance but needed No. 56 Scharle to pull out a victory over No. 93 Shinann Featherstone in a third set tie breaker. The tiebreaker went Featherston's way and the Tar Heels snapped the Seminoles eight match winning streak, all of them coming against conference opponents including four victories over top 11 opponent's during that stretch. Quite the feat considering the ACC is widely regarded the deepest and most talented conference in the nation.

"This team has battled so much adversity over the last four months," continued Hyde. "And still, they found a way to come together and play through the challenges, and more importantly, they discovered the power in playing for each other. This manifested itself in the eight consecutive wins which led them to the finals of the ACC Championship, exactly where they belonged. I think everyone in our conference would agree that the ACC is the deepest, most talented conference in the country. So, for us to come from No. 37 in the nation to beating four top 11 nationally ranked teams in our conference speaks volumes about the Warpath this team is on right now."

'Nole Domination.

The FSU women's tennis team began NCAA first round action with a dominating 4-0 victory against Southern University.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

COLLEGE STATION, TX - The No. 12 Florida State women's tennis team (16-8, 10-5) came out of the gates firing on all cylinders with a dominating 4-0 victory over Southern University Jaguars (11-13) at Texas A&M's George P. Mitchell Tennis Center during the first round of the 2011 NCAA Tournament. The match took only two hours and ten minutes on a windy Saturday morning as the Seminoles will now face the winner of No. 31 Texas A&M and No. 32 Southern Methodist University tomorrow.

"It feels good to get the first round under our belts," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "Our goal was obviously to advance but also find ways to make ourselves better for tomorrow and I think we did a good job of that. Now we just need to relax the rest of this afternoon and get ready for a big match tomorrow."

FSU kicked-off the match with one of the most solid doubles performances' of the season. Winning the first point was the dynamic duo of sophomore Amy Sargeant (Walsall, England) and senior Katie Rybakova (Coral Springs, Fla.) on court three with an 8-1 defeat of Demetria Woods and Lisbeth Castaneda. Securing the doubles point for the Seminoles was on court one as sophomore Noemie Scharle (Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg) and Federica Suess (Ludwigshafen, Germany) won 8-4 over Carlista Mohammed and Jo'Vonna Gaines.

With the match point being played simultaneously on two courts the Seminoles also garnered a rare third victory in doubles on court two as sophomore Francesca Segarelli (Rome Italy) and freshman Ruth Seaborne (London, England) defeated Kathryn Curtis and Lois Alexis, 8-2.

Florida State continued the momentum into singles by winning all the first sets. Earning FSU's second match point was Ruth Seaborne on court four as she tamed the Jaguars' Lisbeth Castaneda 6-0, 6-0. Rybakova quickly won the third point for her team 6-0, 6-1 earning the 103rd victory of her career. Clinching the triumph for Florida State was sophomore No. 51 Noemie Scharle on court three by winning 6-1, 6-1.

The match marked the first ever contest between Florida State and Southern. Coming into the tournament Southern was fresh off winning their second straight Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) championship and made their second straight NCAA appearance. Overall the Lady Jaguars have won the SWAC in six out of the last nine years. With the victory FSU will make its fifth all-time appearance in the second round of the tournament.

While this marked first match ever between the Seminoles and Jaguars, Florida State has a little more history against the Aggies and Mustangs. FSU leads the all-time series against the Texas A&M, 2-0 winning in back to back season in 1994-95. The Aggies women's tennis team has reached the NCAA's 11 straight years. The Seminoles also hold a 3-2 all-time series lead against SMU with the most recent match dating back to 1992 when head coach Jennifer Hyde was an athlete for Florida State.

'Noles Closeout Season.

The Seminoles conclude another successful season with a second round exit from the NCAA Tournament.

By Zach Mendelson, Seminoles.com

COLLEGE STATION, TX. - The No. 12 Florida State women's tennis team (16-9, 10-5 ACC) wrapped up the 2011 season Sunday, May 15 as it fell to No. 32 SMU (23-5) 4-3 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament at the Texas A&M's George P. Mitchell Tennis Center. With the loss the Seminoles will not advance to the third round of the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season, but will walk away with many other accomplishments this season.

"SMU was just too good today," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "They hit one more ball than we did. They fought a little harder than we did. I am super proud of our team because they fought as well but we just came up a little short today. All the credit goes to SMU."

FSU began the match a little slow in doubles as the Mustangs won 8-0 on court one and held a commanding 5-2 lead on court three. The momentum started to shift as the Seminoles secured their first victory in doubles on court two as sophomore Francesca Segarelli (Rome Italy) and freshman Ruth Seaborne (London, England) defeated Edyta Cieplucha and Heather Steinbauer, 8-3. The dynamic duo of sophomore Amy Sargeant (Walsall, England) and senior Katie Rybakova (Coral Springs, Fla.) then completed their furious comeback on court three with an 8-5 victory over Shahzoda Hatamova and Ashley Turpin to secure the doubles point for the Seminoles. With the victory the Seminoles have won on courts two and three for the second time this weekend.

The Seminoles started off slow again in singles falling in the first set on four courts. The team would fight back in the second set to push third set battles on four of the courts. Amy Sargeant stepped up big for the 'Noles once again today as the sophomore won 6-0, 6-2 over the Mustangs Ashley Turpin 6-0, 6-2 on court six pushing the Seminoles out to a 2-0 lead. SMU would respond with a victory on court one as No. 9 Marta Lesniak defeated Katie Rybakova 6-1, 5-7, 6-0. The Mustangs would then even the match with a win on court three as sophomore Noemie Scharle (Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg) fell in a second set tie breaker 6-1, 7-6 (9-7) to Aleksandra Malyarchikova.

The Seminoles would again take the lead as Seaborne fought back from losing the first set to defeat SMU's Heather Steinbauer 2-6, 6-4, 6-3 to give the Seminoles a 3-2 lead. SMU would answer right back with a 6-2, 6-4 victory on court five.

With their backs against the wall and all the momentum on SMU's side the team fought back as they have all season.

With her teammates and Seminole fans cheering her on, Segarelli fought all the way back from down 5-0 to tie the third set at 5-5. Despite the valiant effort, SMU's Edyta Cieplucha would eventually clinch the match to prevent Florida State from advancing to their second straight Sweet 16.

With the victory SMU ties the all-time series record against FSU to 3-3. The last time the Seminoles faced SMU was in 1992 when Hyde was an athlete at Florida State.

Despite the loss, Florida State concluded the 2011 season with several milestones set. Not only did the program win eight straight matches including wins over No. 3 Duke (twice), No. 4 North Carolina and No. 11 Virginia, but the team advanced to the ACC Championship for the second time in FSU history. The team also made many individual strides.

As two of the most memorable Seminoles in history, senior Federica Suess (Ludwigshafen, Germany) and Rybakova leave the team as two of the most successful players to wear the garnet and gold. Suess finished with a school record 104 career victories in singles while Rybakova will hang her uniform as the second most winningest player in singles with 103 career wins.

Although the season is over for the team, competition is far from over for Rybakova and Scharle as they will turn their attention now to the NCAA Individual Tournament beginning May 25th at the Taube Tennis Center in Stanford, Calif.
