The second-ranked Georgia women’s tennis team defeated 21st-ranked Texas A&M 4-0 in Southeastern Conference action Sunday at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex, winning the doubles point and three singles matches in straight sets.

Georgia (11-0, 3-0) took control by winning the first set in all six singles matches after winning doubles for the fourth straight time.

“We did not play at the level that we are capable of and add in the fact that Georgia has a very fine team, which did not make for a great combination for us,” A&M coach Mark Weaver said. “We need to bounce back and have a great week of practice to prepare for a very good Vanderbilt team at home on Friday.”

A&M (14-3, 2-2) will play Vanderbilt at 5 p.m. Friday and Kentucky at 11 a.m. Sunday at the Mitchell Tennis Center.
