FORT WORTH, Texas - The Baylor women's tennis team advanced six players in singles action in the Main Draw at the 2008 Wilson/ITA Southwest Regional on Friday the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center.
"We did not play well today but we found a way to win," said head coach Joey Scrivano. "I guess that counts for something. I would like to see us play well sometime this fall. Our execution is not where it needs to be at the moment."
In addition, two Baylor doubles teams advanced in first round action. On Thursday afternoon, Zuzana Chmelarova and Karolina Filipiak defeated Abby Liu and Maya Zein of Texas 9-7 in the first round of action. On Friday, the Lady Bears' pair fell to Irina Parachiv and Madura Ranganathan of North Texas 9-7 in the second round.
The team of Taylor Ormond and Jelena Stanivuk defeated Sheri Olivier and Lauren Santacroce of Texas A&M 8-4 in the second round after receiving a first-round bye. Csilla Borsanyi and Lenka Broosova also received a first-round bye and downed Mia Gordon and Marina Guana of UL-Lafayette 8-1 in the second round.
In singles action, Broosova, the tournament's top-seeded player, defeated Amanda Craddock of Texas 6-1, 2-6, 6-2. Borsanyi downed Nicole Kantor of LSU 6-1, 6-2, while Ormond rallied from a one-set deficit to defeat Olivier 2-6, 6-4, 6-4. Stanuvuk defeated Martina Trierweiler of UTEP 7-6 (1), 6-2.
Filipiak defeated Angela Dangond of UL-Lafayette 6-3, 6-7, 6-2. Chmelarova defeated Idunn Hertzberg of TCU 6-2, 5-7, 6-3, while Kasia Siwosz suffered Baylor's lone loss on the day, falling to Vanja Corovic of Texas 6-1, 6-0.
