Nov. 26, 2012

First year women’s tennis head coach Chuck Merzbacher has announced today the signing of Maja Vujic, a native of Ontario, Canada.

“We are very pleased to announce that Maja Vujic, a top player from Canada, will be joining the Golden Gophers next year,” said Merzbacher. “She hits a very strong and heavy ball needed to compete at the next level."

Vujic, who trains out of the Gary Muller Tennis Academy at the Ontario Racquet Club near Toronto, is one of the top players in the country. Last year she reached her highest ranking of No. 5 in Ontario and No. 11 in Canada and is expected to rank even higher come the January season. Last year, Vujic claimed the Mid-West ITF Championship and Outdoor National Selection U18 Championship, and finished in the top eight at the 2012 U18 Canadian National championship event. In 2011, she was a finalist at the U18 Outdoor Provincials.

Vujic attended A N Myer Secondary High School and competed for her team, earning Most Valuable Player accolades, all while maintaining academic honors all four years.

“Maja has a tremendous amount of upside potential and will certainly be able to handle the physical demands of collegiate tennis. She is a well-balanced individual, displaying the ability to handle a full athletic schedule and still be a very good student.”
