ORLANDO, Fla. – The Texas A&M doubles team of Stefania Hristov and Cristina Stancu lived up to its No. 1 seed billing, winning the doubles championship at the USTA Clay Court Invitational at the Grand Cypress Racquet Club.

After defeating Michaela Bezdickova and Lizette Blankers of New Mexico, 8-4, in the semifinals, the Aggie duo topped Ashleigh Antal and Marie Casares of Vanderbilt, 8-5, to win the championship.

In the women’s singles consolation bracket, A&M’s Ines Deheza got a straight set victory over Blankers, 6-3, 6-1. Hristov suffered a 4-6, 6-2, 10-3 setback to Casares, and Paula Deheza withdrew after trailing Mia Horvit, 5-0 in the first set.

The fall competition schedule continues this weekend as several A&M players will compete in the adidas Invitational in Portland, Nov. 1-3.
