Nov. 3, 2006

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - Baylor women's tennis advances three players in singles and one doubles team in the Palm Springs Doral Desert Classic this weekend. The tournament consists of playing two singles draws and two doubles draws Nov. 3-5. Zuzana Zemenova and Jessica Zok face each other in Draw A's singles quarterfinals while Iva Mihaylova works to advance through the second round of Draw B. In doubles action, Zok and Klara Zrustova play an early second round match Saturday morning.

"I was proud of the way some of our ladies competed and fought today. We need to get that same kind of effort from our whole team tomorrow," said head coach Joey Scrivano.

Zemenova was given a bye in the first round before posting her round two victory while Zok bested both of her opponents in the first and second rounds of Draw A. Lenka Broosova picked up a round one win but falling in round two to USC's Amanda Fink, 6-3, 6-4. Zrustova was defeated early in the tournament, falling in round one to the tournament's fifth-seeded Anca Anastasiu (USC) 6-2, 6-4.

In Draw B, Mihaylova was the only Bear to make it through round one as Zuzana Chmelarova and Jana Bielikova were both handed losses.

Zok and Broosova advanced through the first round of the doubles Draw A, the only Baylor pair of four to earn a round one victory.

 

 

The Bears will play Saturday starting at 8:00 a.m. (PT) with doubles followed by singles at 11:00 (PT). Baylor's results will be available at BaylorBears.com.
