MILWAUKEE--Returning home after an extended road stretch, the Marquette women's tennis team dropped a tough 4-3 decision to BIG EAST-foe DePaul on Friday afternoon at the Helfaer Tennis Stadium.

In singles play, Ambrosio bounced back and earned a swift 6-4, 6-3 victory at the No. 1 position, which evened the match at 1-1. Tormos Sanchez faltered at the No. 2 spot, 6-4, 6-2, before DePaul's player at the No. 3 position had to retire early, giving Fleur Eggink the victory, 4-6, 7-5, 6-0. Isabella Franks also scored for Marquette (13-7) earning a 6-3, 6-4 victory on court 6.
