Wildcats See Opposite Results in Main Draw Day Two

TULSA, Okla. After advancing four players and three doubles teams through the opening round of the ITA Central Region Tournament on Thursday, Kansas State managed to collect just one singles win and one doubles win as competition continued Friday.


Viviana Yrureta defeated St. Louis University’s Amanda Hellburg in straight sets to open play, but finished the day as the only Kansas State player to win a singles match. Oklahoma’s Monica Purice beat Yrureta, 6-2, 7-5, to advance to the quarterfinal round.


In doubles, Yrureta and Katerina Kudlackova topped Kansas’ Dorn and Svistun, 8-4, in K-State’s only win in three tries Friday. Yrureta and Kudlackova square off with Arkansas’ Nanar Airapetian and Mayori Franco in the quarterfinal round at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday.


Tamar Kvaratskhelia was outlasted by Oklahoma’s Irina Lykina in a three-set, tie-break loss and joined Kudlackova and Klimova as Wildcats headed to the consolation round after losing in the main draw round of 32. 

Play continues throughout the weekend and culminates with Sunday’s championship matches. The winners of the singles and doubles draws will receive an automatic bid into the Wilson/ITA Indoor National Championship hosted by Ohio State University.
