After the team match was decided, freshman Federica Suess closed out the day with a 6-3, 7-6 victory over Aileen Davis. Suess is now 8-1 in the ACC with eight straight victories dating backing to the Seminoles’ 7-0 win over UNLV on March 12.
The Seminoles also earned the doubles point with Macfarlane and fellow sophomore Jessica Wente’s 8-1 victory over Malvehy and Davis on court two. Walter and Suess completed the Seminole sweep in pairs with a close 9-7 defeat of Kulikova and Tara in the number two spot.
Because of injuries, Wake Forest did not post players on singles court six or doubles court three, giving senior Tapiwa Marobela a singles and doubles victory by default along with Rybakova.
Florida State will be back in action on Sunday, April 13 against N.C. State in Raleigh-Durham, N.C. The match will close out FSU’s regular season competition. Play begins Thursday, April 17 at the ACC Championships in Altamonte Springs, Fla.
