Women's Tennis Continues Play at Vanderbilt Invitational
Oct. 20, 2007
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana University women's tennis team won eight of their nine singles matches on day two of the June Stewart Invitational at Vanderbilt University. Senior Brianna Williams and Freshman Maria Guerreiro highlighted the Hoosier doubles action, earning their third doubles win of the weekend.
The following eight players won their respective singles matches on Saturday:
Junior Sigrid Fischer, meanwhile, will take on Micaela Hein from Arizona State on Sunday for third place in her flight after suffering a 7-5, 6-2 second round loss on Saturday.
"Our singles was a little better today, but it is really hard to compare from day to days," said Head Coach Lin Loring. "The competition has been very, very good or in some cases very weak. We are focusing on some performance goals and not really too worried about match outcomes."
As mentioned above, the Guerreiro/Williams tandem moved to 3-0 on the weekend in doubles play, posting an 8-3 victory over Kentucky's Alaina Trgovish and Jessica Giuggioli. Hoosier doubles combinations of Fischer/Stuckey and Berdala/Martin also notched a win. Heller and Sopel won as well, taking an 8-2 win over Martie Wahl and Mary Beth Gunn from Tennessee-Martin. Overall, IU recorded a 4-2 mark in doubles on day two.
"The tournament has given us a chance to really experiment with doubles because they are playing five doubles matches," said Loring. "We have changed the teams several times and will try more combinations tomorrow. It has been a great teaching environment."
