Williams wins 10th straight singles match for Abilene Christian
The sophomore rallied for a 7-6, 1-6, 7-6 victory over Maider Martin of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at No. 5 singles.
Williams, of South High fame, has now won a string of matches over the last week in amazing comeback fashion.
“For sure after my singles win I was about to cry becuase I was so happy and tired and that was the hardest match I’ve played all season,” Williams told me.
Williams is now 9-0 in conference singles matches, 16-5 overall.
Last week she was down a set and a couple breaks before rallying in three sets.
Two days ago, in doubles, her and partner Erin Walker came back from a 5-2 deficit before posting the win.
And yesterday she was down 4-1 in the third set before triumphing in a tiebreaker.
“It was awesome,” Williams said. “It’s tiring [to have come back like that], but it’s pretty awesome to find another level of playing and competing.”
The dual meet between the two NCAA D1 teams was a showdown between the top two squads in the Southland Conference.
Texas A&M-Corpus Christi won 5-4 to claim the conference regular-season title and remain undefeated at 18-0.
Abilene Christian fell to 17-6, 7-2.
