   After seeing limited action this season, Kristie Ahn played the maximum three sets for the Vegas Rollers today.
   It did not go well.
   The Stanford graduate lost badly in all three sets as Vegas fell to the San Diego Aviators 20-15 in extended play in a World TeamTennis match at The Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.V.
   Ahn lost 5-2 in the first set (mixed doubles with ex-Stanford All-American Mike Bryan), 5-1 in the next set (women's singles against Christina McHale) and 5-2 in the fourth set (women's doubles with Monica Puig). Both Ahn and McHale are 28-year-old residents of Englewood Cliffs, N.J., in the New York area.
   San Diego (2-3) built a virtually insurmountable 18-10 lead after four sets. Vegas' Sam Querrey, a 32-year-old San Francisco native, dominated Ryan Harrison 5-1 in the fifth set to cut the Aviators' lead to 19-15 and send the match to extended time. But Harrison held serve for the victory.
   Asia Muhammad has not played for the Rollers (3-3) since being replaced in women's doubles in a 25-13 loss to Orange County on Thursday.
   Vegas will meet the Washington Kastles (2-3), with Venus Williams, on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. PDT. The match will be shown on CBS Sports App and Facebook Watch and joined in progress on CBS at 10:30 a.m.
