MALIBU, Calif. – The Pepperdine women’s tennis team extended its win streak to four matches after a convincing 7-0 triumph over the visiting Gonzaga Bulldogs. The Waves completely shut out the Bulldogs in doubles before cruising to six straight-set singles victories in just under two hours.

Pepperdine (6-10, 3-0 West Coast Conference) was unstoppable in doubles. Khunpak Issara (Bangkok, Thailand/Bangkok Patana School) and Lorraine Guillermo (Walnut, Calif./Rowland HS), as well as Ale Granillo (Pachuca, Mexico/Instituto Hidalgo) and Michaela Capannolo (Hawthorn, Australia/Genazzano FCJ College), both won 8-0 to earn the doubles point for the Waves.

Megan Moore (Portland, Ore./Jesuit HS) and Tara Panu (Los Altos Hill, Calif./The Harker School) were leading 7-1 when play was abandoned.

The dominance carried over into singles, as evident by the six total shutout sets the Waves posted.

Both Granillo and Danielle Feneridis (Auckland, New Zealand/Westlake Girls HS) served up a “double bagel,” winning their respective matches 6-0, 6-0.

Issara came up just one game shy of the feat, downing Kyle Peek 6-1, 6-0. It was the senior’s 11th-consecutive win.

Michaela Capannolo (Hawthorn, Australia/Genazzano FCJ College) put away a 6-0, 6-2 decision against Alexandra Tallas.



Guillermo and Moore also won in straight sets to lift Pepperdine to their second 7-0 shutout of the season.

The Waves play one final time on the courts of the Ralphs-Straus Tennis Center tomorrow, April 6 versus Portland. Just prior to the 11 a.m. match, seniors Issara, Panu and Abigail Phillips (Thousand Oaks, Calif./Oaks Christian HS) will be recognized.
