TULSA, Okla. – Kansas State women’s tennis opened its final weekend of the fall schedule at two different locales on Friday, as junior Petra Niedermayerova and freshman Ivana Kubickova took on the field at the ITA Central Regional in Tulsa, while four Wildcats competed at the KU Invitational.

For the first time this season, head coach Steve Bietau utilized the duo of Niedermayerova and Kubickova in doubles play. The countrywomen, who each hail from Brno, Czech Republic, tallied an 8-2 win over Tamara Slijepcevic and Biljana Miloshevska of Arkansas State in their first match together to open the morning.

The K-State duo returned to the courts at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center for their second round match, and defeated Mary Weatherholt and Patricia Veresova of Nebraska, 8-5. Niedermayerova and Kubickova will face Ruth Seaborne and Katie Zordani in the third round of doubles on Saturday morning. Niedermayerova improved her career doubles record to 41-33 (.554), while Kubickova is 6-4 in her young K-State career.

Niedermayerova then took to the singles courts and tallied a pair of wins. In her first round matchup against Slijepcevic of Arkansas State, Niedermayerova tallied a 6-1, 6-2 win. In her second round matchup with Alex Clark of Missouri, Niedermayerova registered a tidy, 6-0, 6-0, win.

Niedermayerova owns a 7-1 mark this fall and improved her career singles record to 55-24 (.696). Niedermayerova’s career mark in straight set matches stands at 47-13 (.783).

After dropping her first round match, Kubickova rebounded to win her back draw opener against Nell Boyd of Drake, 6-3, 6-1. Kubickova is 5-3 in her first season with the Wildcats.

At the KU Invitational in Lawrence, the Wildcats recorded three singles wins in three separate draws. Senior Carmen Borau Ramos improved to 4-3 this fall with a 7-6 (4), 6-1 win over Eva Dalval of UMKC in the quarterfinals of Draw A. Borau Ramos has advanced to at least the semifinals in all three fall events.

Senior Ana Gomez Aleman ended a personal five-match skid with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Mariel Ante of Drake in the quarterfinals of Draw B. Sophomore Amina St. Hill also improved to 4-3 this fall with a 6-4, 6-1 decision over Emma Waites of Iowa State, 6-4, 6-1.

K-State will continue action at the two events on Saturday. The Wildcats at the KU Invitational will begin doubles action at 9 a.m., while Niedermayerova and Kubickova will return to doubles play at 9 a.m., in Tulsa.
