Results and Draws

SALT LAKE CITY -Utah will send seven student-athletes this week (Oct. 9-13) to the 2013 USTA/Intercollegiate Tennis Association Mountain Region Championships hosted by UNLV at its Fertitta Tennis Complex.

Tereza Bekerova is seeded third and Sarah Pham is ranked fourth among the top eight players in the tournament. Callie Craig is seeded in the 9-16 range and will also receive a bye in the first round. Luisa Gerstner Da Rosa, Lucia Kovarcikova, Sarah Richter and Erica Valimaki are all involved in first-round action.

Last year's event saw Pham, seeded third, fall in the final to UNLV's No. 2 seed Aleksandra Josifoska, 6-3, 6-4. Josifoska is the top seed this year while teammate Lucia Batta, who won this tournament in 2010, is the second seed. 

In doubles play last year, the duo of Paige Miles and Bekerova upset top-seeded and defending champions Veronica Popovici and Simona Synkova of Wyoming, 8-5. 

This is the fourth consecutive year that the ITA women's event will be held in Las Vegas with members from 19 teams facing off on 12 courts in both singles and doubles action. 


 

 

This will be one of 24 USTA/ITA Regional Championships for NCAA Division I men and women taking place over these middle two weekends of October at campuses throughout the country. The singles and doubles champions will advance to the 2013 USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships, taking place November 7-10, at the indoor facilities at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, located in Flushing, N.Y. 

Wednesday's first round gets under way with doubles at 9:00 a.m. PT and a full round of singles will follow. There will be consolation draws in both singles and doubles to ensure each entrant at least two matches. 

The finals are set for Sunday. Admission to all matches is free of charge.
