Western Michigan women’s tennis moved to 3-0 on the season by easily handling Valparaiso 7-0 on Saturday.
The Broncos earned the doubles point by winning on courts one and three. Femke Tjon-A-Joe and Kristina Tiraspoolsky won 6-3 at court No. 1, Ana Guadiana and Karin Hamilton lost 6-1 at court No. 2. A dominant 6-0 win at court No. 3 by Lindsey Zieglar and Kaitlyn Rogosh secured the doubles point for WMU.
Zieglar took court No. 1 for singles play and won, 6-4, 6-4. Tjon-A-Joe won 6-3, 6-4 at court No. 2, while Guadiana handled her opponent best in singles play, winning 6-2, 6-1 at No. 3. Maya Perkucin also won in straight sets at court No. 6, 6-3, 7-6, while the athletes at courts four and five both lost their first set. Hamilton recovered from a 4-6 first set with 6-1, 6-2 sets for a comeback win, and Rogosh won 2-6, 6-1, 6-1.
"I really thought we came out and played better doubles today versus last weekend," said head coach Ryan Tomlinson. "We had some different combos and won the doubles point again." We took a step forward from that standpoint. I told the team that there aren't many 'Perfect 10's'. We won ugly today and that's good to see as a young team."
WMU returns to the court with a double-header Saturday at St. Bonaventure. The first match starts at 10 a.m.
