The Texas women’s tennis team won the doubles point and three singles matches to defeat TCU 4-0 on Friday in Fort Worth. The win makes it 10 straight for the Longhorns, the longest winning streak since 2010.

The No. 6 Longhorns improved to 14-4 on the season, with a 4-0 record in the Big 12.

“Tonight definitely asked some questions of our ladies’ resolve,” said UT head coach Howard Joffe.  “A 35-minute lightning delay followed by a rain delay and then a move indoors at the critical moment of the doubles unquestionably made for a late and interesting evening.”
