Women's Tennis Has Big Weekend at Wildcat Invitational
EVANSTON, Ill. – The DePaul women’s tennis team rolled through the annual Wildcat Invitational over the weekend at Northwestern.
"I was extremely proud of the team this weekend,” DePaul head coach Mark Ardizzone said. “To have two of our players in the finals in this great tournament, with such great teams, in an incredible honor. They played each other hard in the finals and really made the program look great today."
The top Flight was an all DePaul championship as freshmen Dunja Antunovic defeated sophomore Beatrix Csordas 6-2,4-6,6-3. In the top doubles flight, Csordas and sophomore Gergana Ganeva defeated Louisville's Robin White and Maria Klokotsky 8-6 in the final.
To get to the A Flight championship both Antunovic and Csordas had come from behind victories in the semi-finals. Antunovic won 7-5 in the third set and Csordas won 6-1 in the third to set up the all Blue Demon final.
Ganeva also won the back draw of the A Flight after dropping her opening round match.
"Gergana and Bea dominated the field in the doubles. They played a great Louisville team in the final after beating a really good Northwestern team in the semifinals to get the job done,” Ardizzone said.
Sophomore Bojana Murisic was 2-2 in the second flight and junior Petra Rehusova was 1-1 in the second flight as well. Sophomore Anja Mihaldinec finished 3-1 and in fifth place in the third flight. Junior Brenda Leung went 2-2 to finish in seventh place also in the third flight.
Clare Chmiel and Ariel Ross also picked up victories in the fourth flight for the Blue Demons.
"This tournament was a great opportunity for us to play a lot of tennis against a lot of great teams,” Ardizzone said. “We played under some pretty tough conditions and really did well."
