Two Tigers Win Two At ITA Regionals
Hana Ritterova and Iveta Masarova each won two singles matches on the opening day at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Regionals on Friday, Oct. 18.
Masarova picked up wins over Kelly Chui of Cal and Thyra Taune of San Francisco, while Ritterova defeated Santa Clara's Elaine Chesoni and UC Davis' Tiffany Pham. Ritterova also advanced with doubles partner Cristian Saenz de Buruaga.
"Hana and Cristina gave us the kick start to the tournament that we needed by not dropping a single game in their first round doubles match," said Head Coach Charlotte Scatliffe. "We have been struggling with our excitement level around our doubles but today you would not know it. All teams played with a sense of urgency and purpose which is what we set out to do. Iveta and Hana had fantastic breakout performances in their first round singles matches. Iveta's second round match was even more impressive. To see her perform during this tournament with the same focus and spirit that she has been bringing to practice this week was a delight and is what we needed to inspire her teammates. We are looking forward to tomorrows round of 16 matches and another great day of competition."
