The Orange County Breakers’ Jenn Brady took the court for the Women’s Singles set and for the second night in a row, dominated her way to a 5-0 set win in only 19 minutes over Sabine Lisicki of the New York Empire. The Breakers, down by one point at the start of the second set, would never trail again on their way to a 24-15 win.
The Empire’s Kim Clijsters, who has yet to lose a Women’s Singles set this season, was rested for tonight’s match.
New York never recovered despite a unique substitution in the Mixed Doubles set when Empire coach Luke Jensen switched out both players while down, 1-2. The move certainly caused the Breakers duo of Gaby Dabrowski and Austin Krajicek to adjust, however Orange County still managed to win the set, 5-3. The Breakers took the final set of the night, Women’s Doubles, 5-3, to close the scoring.
"I was playing each game as a fresh start, playing every point the same and committing to my shots and playing my game,” said Brady. “When you’re able to get a 5-0 or 5-1 win, it puts a little more pressure on the other team.”
