NC State Defeats Wisconsin 5-2
The NC State women's tennis team finished off Wisconsin 5-2 on Sunday, Feb. 7.

The Wolfpack made things look easy in doubles play, sweeping the Badgers in the three matches. Sandhya Nagaraj paired with Daria Petrovic on No. 1 doubles, to beat Angela Chupa and Aleksandra Markovic, 8-4. Berkeley Brock and Lenka Hojckova won 8-4 over Hannah Berner and Kathleen Saltarelli. Ashley Miller and Diana Mortlock defeated Alaina Trgovich and Jessica Seyferth, 8-2.

In singles, No. 45 Nagaraj defeated Katya Mirnova in straight sets, 6-1, 6-2. Brock beat Markovic 6-2, 7-5. In the second set Brock was down 3-5, but came back to win 7-5. Tana Illova lost to Berner 6-1, 6-1. 

No. 21 FSU Falls To No. 2 Northwestern 7-0
After riding the wave of success with a three-match winning streak, the No. 21 Florida State women’s tennis team (3-2) suffered its second loss of the season to No. 2 Northwestern, 7-0. The Seminoles will now turn their attention to the ITA Indoor Championships beginning Friday, February 12, in Madison, Wisconsin.

FSU felt Northwestern’s force early on with the Wildcats posting back-to-back doubles wins to earn the 1-0 lead into singles. However, court two saw FSU win its only match of the day with Federica Suess and Katie Rybakova trumping Britany Wowchuck and Maria Mosolova 8-6.

Singles was no different for Florida State with the Wildcats dominating all six courts. 

Wake Forest Falls to Indiana, 5-2
Playing in their second match in as many days, the Wake Forest women's tennis team dropped a 5-2 decision to Indiana on Sunday afternoon at the Indoor Tennis Center.

Once again, Wake Forest was shorthanded on the amount of players they had available to play in the match. Sophomore Ryann Cutillo and freshman Kathryn Talbert remained sidelined with injuries, thereby leaving the Demon Deacons with only five healthy players. Wake Forest automatically forfeited the number three doubles match and the number six singles match as a result of these injuries.

Junior Emilee Malvehy was the first to finish her singles play on the day, as she took down Indiana's Evgeniya Vertesheva by a score of 6-4, 6-3, improving to 2-0 in this weekend's singles action. Senior standout Sasha Kulikova followed close behind with a 6-4, 7-6 (7-3) win over freshman Leslie Hureau.
