Pre-Qualifying Singles Bracket

– Donning a Baylor uniform for the first time in her career, junior transfer Sona Novakova picked up two wins in the first two rounds of pre-qualifying at the Riviera/ITA Women’s All-American Championships in Los Angeles, Calif.

“Sona did a great job today,” assistant coach Alison Ojeda, “She has implemented what she has been working on in practice, and came out and played well today in her first matches in a Baylor uniform.”

In her first match of the day, Novakova took a straight-set win over Georgia Tech Sasha Krupina. Novakova battled Krupina to a tie-break in the first, winning 7-6, then dominated the second set without dropping a game in a 6-0 win.

Novakova continued her consistent play against Nebraska’s Patrica Veresova with another straight-set win. She won consecutive sets 6-4 to claim the victory and move to the next round.

Novakova will take on UCLA’s Courtney Dolehide in the next round with a spot in the Qualifying Draw on the line. The two will take the court at Noon on Sunday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center on the campus of UCLA.
