Nov. 10, 2013

The Minnesota women’s tennis team wrapped up its fall season Sunday with its strongest day at North Carolina’s Kitty Harrison Invitational. The Gophers, previously 6-10 in singles play, went 7-1 on the final day of the tournament.

Tereza Brichacova, Aria Lambert, and Maja Vujic each earned their first wins of the weekend on the day and Yuliana Umanets and Kendall Heitzner both earned their third to cap 3-0 tournaments.

Brichacova, Heitzner, and Jessika Mozia all won in three-set super tiebreakers against opponents from Maryland. Lambert, Umanets, and Saturday winner Julia Courter dispatched their opponents, also Terrapins, in straight sets.

Freshman Maja Vujic wrapped up her first fall season with a tight, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (6) win over Tea Ivanovic of Virginia Tech, while Paula Rincon Otero fell to the Hokies’ Carol Kahoun in a super tiebreaker.

Umants and Mozia finish the fall season tied for the team lead in singles wins with 10 apiece, while Brichacova concluded and impressive start to her junior season with nine victories.

The Gophers will not play until the spring season begins in January. The Gophers season will start Jan. 19 when it welcomes both Eastern Michigan and Northern Iowa to the Baseline Tennis Center for matches.
