TEMPE, Ariz. -- The University of Michigan women's tennis team finished its fall season on Sunday (Nov. 10), completing play in the three-day ASU Thunderbird at the Whiteman Tennis Center.

Sophomore Amy Zhu (Newark, Del./Laurel Springs) headlined Michigan's singles effort, going 3-1 with a pair of three-set wins to end the tournament. On the final day of action (Sunday, Nov. 10), Zhu rebounded from a 6-1 first-set loss for the win over Arizona State's Desirae Krawcyzk (1-6, 6-1, 6-4).

Junior Kristen Dodge (Barrington, Ill./Barrington) and freshman Laura Ucros (Bogotá, Colombia/ Fundación Nuevo Marymount) each picked up two singles wins in the final tournament action of the 2013 calendar year. It was the first action for Ucros this fall in a Michigan uniform.

In doubles, Dodge teamed with freshman Annie Wierda (Holland, Mich./Evert Tennis Academy) for a 2-1 ledger. The U-M pair dropped its first match on Friday (Nov. 8) but won its final two matches to leave the tourney with a winning record.

Michigan will now train for the remainder of the calendar year before getting back into action by hosting the Michigan Invitational in 2014 (Jan. 18-20) at the Varsity Tennis Center. That tournament will mark the end of individual play for the Maize and Blue.
