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.
