Jan. 19, 2014
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana women's tennis had another solid afternoon in day two of the IU Winter Invitational on Sunday. The Hoosiers went 9-1 in singles play and 8-2 in doubles.
IU freshman Paula Gutierrez went the distance against Lana Buttner before winning the match tiebreaker, 6-2, 0-6, 1-0 (12-10). ACU's Kaysie Hermsdorf fell to Indiana's Shannon Murdy in consecutive sets, 6-2, 6-1.
In doubles, four Indiana tandems advanced the semifinals of main draw. Gutierrez and Mary Beth King went 2-0 on the day. Other Hoosier tandems going a perfect 2-0 included Garre and Fujimoto along with Chupa and Klyczek. Kauss and Murdy as well as Rubenstein and Schmider both went 1-1 on the day.
"We continued to play well today, especially in doubles," head coach Lin Loring said. "It was quite an accomplishment to get our 1-4 teams in the semifinals. That means our No. 3 and No. 4 teams beat some No. 1 and No. 2 tandems from the other schools. I also thought we continued to play very focused in the singles. It was another good day for us."
The final day of the IU Winter Invite will take place on Monday with play starting at 10 a.m. ET.
