Baylor will face fifth-seeded Notre Dame in the quarterfinals on Sunday, May 17 at 5 p.m. (CT). There was a power outage at 8:22 p.m. which suspended play for an hour and 15 minutes at the George P. Mitchell Tennis Center. The match, including the delay, lasted a little over seven hours and ended at 2:12 a.m.

Baylor Head Coach Joey Scrivano

ďStanford played a great match. No one deserved to lose tonight. We were very fortunate to win. We didnít play our best tennis. Stanford was really on top of us from the beginning of the night. We just stuck around. Iím still in a little bit of a shock that we won it, because it didnít look good for a long time. It looked like everything was against us. This was a huge win for us. I know that anytime Iíve seen the lights go out at a tennis match, whoever is losing usually comes back and wins, so I felt good about our chances. Outside of that though, it just made the night longer and I donít know if it had much of an effect on the match.Ē

Baylor Junior Csilla Borsanyi

ďI donít really have words. Iím way too excited right now. Iím really happy that I could pull it out for my team. The match was really tough. We were right there with each other. I think it just came down to who wanted it more and I really wanted it. I just had to stay focused on my game and try not to think about it being three-all (in the third set). I just went point-by-point and tried to do it. Iíve had the experience in each of my years to be in a position to clinch matches, so I am lucky that I could handle it tonight.Ē

Stanford Head Coach Lele Forood

ďI donít think Iíve seen any matches go until 2 oíclock in the morning. This was a new one for me. It was just an epic match. We just came up a little short and they played very well. It definitely had its ups and downs in every match and obviously overall as well. It is one of those college tennis matches that when it winds up 4-3, it looks like it is going to go different ways constantly through the match. (Csilla) Borsanyi is a little more experienced than Veronica (Li) and she came up with the goods and especially served well in the last game. They were both hitting it and there was no pushing. It was an excellent match to finish up and to be the last match on.Ē
