Jan. 18, 2011
Blau, a native of Koerich, Luxembourg, lost the first set in both singles matches and was down to match-point in both before battling back for three-set victories.
Playing at the No. 5 spot, Blau scrapped for a 4-6, 7-6, 6-4 win over Kata Szekely of 13th-ranked Tennessee. Blau followed up that victory with a 6-7, 7-6, 6-3 win over Mimi Nguyen of eighth-ranked and host team Michigan.
On the first day of the tournament, Blau also teamed with Elizabeth Kilborn to defeat 23rd-ranked Washington's Samantha Smith and Lina Xu, 8-3, in doubles play. Blau's lone defeat of the first two days came in doubles as she and Kilborn dropped a tough 8-6 match to the ninth-ranked team of Millie Nichols and Rosalia Alda from Tennessee.
