Central Region Doubles Bracket

The Minnesota women’s tennis team picked up play at the USTA/ITA Central Region Championships in Norman, Okla. Friday with doubles play. After Julia Courter and Jessika Mozia joined Gopher teammates Tereza Brichacova and Natallia Pintusuava in the main draw of singles competition with two wins apiece Thursday, inclement weather caused the postponement of singles play. Doubles were played instead.

Minnesota began the day with four doubles tandems in the 64-team field and finished with a record of 3-4. 

Mozia and Brichacova went the furthest of any Gopher duo, reaching the Round of 16 with two wins on the day. The pair defeated Krizia Buck and Bianca Struklj of Central Arkansas 8-1 before edging Missouri’s Alex Clark and Madison Rhyner 8-7 (3). Their run ended in the third round when they fell 8-5 to Abby Stevens and Julia Schiller of Wichita State.

Maja Vujic and Yuliana Umanets were the only other tandem from Minnesota to advance, topping WSU’s Summer Schlotterback and Whitley Quan 8-5 in the first round.

Kendall Heitzner and Paula Rincon Otero and Courter and Pintusava both fell in their first match. Courter and Pintusava were seeded seventh entering the tournament.

The Gophers have now completed doubles play and their four remaining singles competitors will resume play Saturday.
