Natalie Beazant and Dominique Harmath had a rough first day at the Riviera ITA All America Championship, dropping first round matches in both singles and doubles and moving into the consolation bracket in both. All matches are being played at the Riviera Tennis Club in Pacific Palisades, California.
"It wasn't our best day," Rice head coach Elizabeth Schmidt said. "But everyone in this draw is ranked. The other teams played well, especially on the big points in each match."
Beazant opened action with a singles match against Nicole Bartnik of Columbia and dropped a 6-3, 6-2 decision. She will meet Lauren McHale of North Carolina in a consolation match at 2:30 (central).
Harmath and Beazant, who entered the tournament as the #8 seed, dropped an 8-3 decision to Alabama's Mary Anne Macfarlane and Alexa Guarachi. They will face Stacey Tan and Ellen Tsay of Stanford on Friday morning.
While Beazant and Harmath remain on the West Coast, their teammates will host the Rice Invitational at Jake Hess Tennis Stadium over the weekend. Play in the invitation gets underway at 8:30 on Friday.
