MILWAUKEE, Wis. – K-State put its second day of the 36th annual Milwaukee Tennis Classic into the books on Saturday afternoon, with a pair of doubles wins over Marquette and the first singles victories of the season against Western Michigan. Petra Niedermayerova, Carmen Borau Ramos and Marketa Trousilova each secured a singles and doubles win on the day.
Niedermayerova, ranked No. 35 in the preseason Campbell/ITA national singles rankings, outlasted Western Michigan’s Nini Sujashvili in a first set tiebreaker, but tallied the win in straight sets with a 6-3 win in the second set. The sophomore from Brno, Czech Republic, is now 25-11 in her brief career with the Wildcats. In straight set matches, Niedermayerova has amassed a 20-6 career mark.
Borau Ramos recorded her first singles win of the fall season with a straight set decision, 6-2, 7-5, over Jill Pastunink. Borau Ramos, a junior from San Bernardo, Spain, owns a 20-34 career singles record, including a 14-25 mark in straight set matches.
Trousilova, in her freshman season with the Wildcats, tallied her first singles win with a 6-3, 6-2 decision over Maggie Remynse.
After playing together for the first time in their careers on Friday, Niedermayerova and junior Ana Gomez Aleman returned to the court on Saturday to notch a similar result. The K-State duo dispatched of Marquette’s Olga Fischer and Rocio Diaz, 8-4. Gomez Aleman is now 31-33 in her career in doubles play, while Niedermayerova improved to 20-17.
