WACO, Texas - After the second day of competition at the Baylor Fall Invitational, five Bears look to claim bracket championships Sunday at the Baylor Tennis Center. Matches start as earlier as 8 a.m.

In Sunday's singles action, top-seeded Zuzana Zemenova and second-seeded Zuzana Cerna play for the Gold Draw Championship, the Invitational's top bracket, while Jessica Zok plays Tulsa's Kindsay Grimes for the Gold Consolation championships. The singles championship matches will be played after doubles matches and will start no earlier than 10:30 a.m.

Second-seeded doubles tandem Cerna and partner Lenka Broosova battle Texas Tech's third-seeded team Janet Durham and Lakann Wagley in the doubles Gold Draw semifinals. The Cerna/Broosova pair was the only team to advance Saturday as three Baylor tandems lost in the quarterfinals. All quarterfinal doubles matches will begin at 8:00 a.m.

Also still alive in the doubles White Draw is Sammi Gottlich who is paired with Lamar's Manami Kuroda. The mix-matched team will play Rice's third-seeded partners Rebecca Lin and Emily Braid in the semifinals.

During Saturday's matches, Baylor often found itself matched against a fellow teammate. Zemenova defeated Broosova in the singles Gold Draw semifinals while Zok bested Jana Bielikova in the Gold Consolation semifinals.
