The No. 23 Vanderbilt Commodores lost a 5-2 match to the No. 15 Alabama Crimson Tide Friday afternoon in Tuscaloosa.

Nelly Radeva and Marie Casares battled their way into a doubles win on court three to prevent a sweep, but the Commodores lost the point as the #18 and #68 doubles pairs won 8-1 and 8-2, respectively, on courts one and two.

The Tide swept out to a 2-0 lead before Radeva beat her opponent, Taylor Lindsey, in straight sets for a 6-3, 6-2 win.  

Alabama’s Alex Clay made it 3-1 Tide with her 6-3, 6-2 win over Alex Leatu. With Jackie Wu and Ashleigh Antal battling on courts one and five, Casares dropped her third set to Courtney McLane as Alabama clinched the match.
