Wildcats Show Improvement on Day Two

MANHATTAN, Kan. Tamar Kvaratskhelia won for the second straight day and Viviana Yrureta notched her first win of the season as the Wildcats turned in a solid performance at the Washburn Tennis Facility during the Kansas State Invitational on Saturday.

 

Kvaratskhelia defeated Missouri’s Amanda Pratzel in straight sets for her second consecutive win and Yrureta beat the Tiger’s Erika Josbena, 6-1, 6-2, for her first win in a year. Yrureta missed the entire spring season and much of the fall with an injury last year last winning a match on September 30, 2005, against Casady Pruitt of Murray State at the Indiana Hoosier Classic.

 

Katerina Kudlackova won her singles match Missouri’s Kaitlin Dunham to give the Wildcats three singles wins during Saturday’s competition.

 

In doubles, Kudlackova and Olga Klimova swept the competition, winning against Missouri’s Josbena and Pratzel, and Tulsa’s Kindsay Grimes and Carla Zabaleta. The Wildcats won three of six doubles matches on Saturday, with Yrureta and partner Tereza Prochazkova topping Missouri’s Raquel Wagner and Katelyn McKenzie, 9-8(7-4). 

The Kansas State Invitational concludes on Sunday with one round of singles to begin at 8:30 a.m.
