January 31 - February 7, 2016
After a full day of tennis, six Americans advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2016 Dow Corning Tennis Classic.
In the highly anticipated match-up of CiCi Bellis and Robin Anderson, both players came out on to the court with confidence with Bellis taking an early lead, winning 13 out of the first 14 points. Anderson quickly found her rhythm and evened up the match before ultimately winning the first set 7-5.
In the second set, Anderson continued on her momentum and converted four out of five break points, helping her close out the match, 7-5, 6-3.
When asked about her keys to winning the match Anderson said, “Maybe she felt like she had to go for more because I was making her play a lot of balls”, and that she was happy with the way she played.
Anderson will now face off against qualifier Alexandra Sanford, who beat Alexa Glatch 6-4 in the first set before retiring due to injury.
