The senior from Amiens, France, picked up her 99th career win in her 6-4, 6-2 victory over Taka Bertrand of Vanderbilt.
It was second-seeded Coin's fifth
consecutive victory, and her 27th overall in dual match play. Her only losses during the regular season were to top-ranked Megan
Bradley of Miami (FL). Most recently, she has defeated fourth-ranked Audra Cohen of Northwestern, #41 Aniela Mojzis of North Carolina and seventh-ranked Amber Liu of Stanford. Notably, Liu is the reigning
NCAA Individual Champion, and Cohen handed Coin one of her two losses during the fall season. On Tuesday, Coin will face Arizona's Dianne
Hollands in the round of 32.
Tiger freshman Romy Farah also competed in singles play on Monday
afternoon, falling in a hard-fought three-set match to Lindsey Nelson
of Southern California. Farah, a native of Cali, Columbia, won the
first set by a score of 6-4 before the 16th-ranked Nelson rallied to
win the final two sets by scores of 6-4 and 6-2. Farah ends her
freshman campaign as an All-ACC honoree and with a 26-13 overall
mark. In dual match play, she was 19-11 and is currently ranked #59
in the most recent ITA poll.
On Tuesday, Coin and Alix Lacelarie will begin play in the doubles
tournament. The Tigers' top duo will face 27th-ranked Arizona
State's Lauren Colalillo and Kady Pooler. Coin and Lacelarie enter
this year's tournament with a 13-3 overall record and a 10-2 mark in
dual match action. They are ranked 12th in the most recent ITA poll
and have pulled off five upset wins over top-15 ranked teams during
their 2005 campaign.
