Stanford’s Taylor Davidson fought off a match point for 3-6, 7-5, 7-5 victory over Oklahoma State’s Vladica Babic that gave the Cardinal a 4-3 win and their 18th NCAA women’s tennis championship on Tuesday.
Babic won the first set 6-3 and had match point at 5-4 in the second, but Davidson rallied for the title-clinching win.
After Viktoriya Lushkova beat Stanford’s Caroline Doyle 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 in No. 3 singles, No. 12 Oklahoma State led the team competition 3-1. But the No. 15 Cardinal came back and won the next two matches.
Caroline Lampl and Melissa Lord won their matches after each lost the first set for Oklahoma State, setting up the Davidson-Babic No. 2 singles match as the one to decide the title.
