Women’s tennis wins first double-header of season

Womens tennis wins first double-header of season

The first women’s dual tennis match of the semester found the No. 16 Horned Frogs sweeping the Texas State Bobcats and UT-Arlington Mavericks.Though Mountain West Conference Women’s Tennis Player of the Week senior Ana Cetnik was taking the day off for rest, the rest of the team rose to the occasion, head coach Jeff Hammond said.

“We were not at full strength today, yet we played with a lot of heart and our good fitness showed,” Hammond said.

The team won both the morning and afternoon matches by the score of 5-2.

Junior Andrea Morgado came through in her singles match against UTA, coming away with an impressive 6-0, 6-0 shutout.

“Andrea (Morgado) didn’t feel like she was playing too well in doubles,” Hammond said. “But she focused in singles, and she found that she can play well when she talks in a positive tone to herself.”

The Horned Frogs were able to go 4-2 in their six singles matches on Monday. Senior Gabby Lopez was downed 1-6, 1-6, while freshman Nina Munch-Soegaard lost a third-set tiebreaker, 9-11.

Munch-Soegaard dropped the first set 5-7 but rebounded for a dominating second set, where she found her rhythm and cruised to a 6-1 win. After taking the second set, a 10-point tiebreaker was implemented in lieu of a full third set with the winner having to win by two sets.

“In my mind, Nina (Munch-Soegaard) would have won the third set based on her second-set performance,” Hammond said.

The final singles match of the evening was won by junior Kewa Nichols and her powerful baseline play. Nichols had a 5-2 second-set lead and ran into a little bit of trouble finishing off her opponent, but she managed to disparage UT-Arlington’s Simri van Rooyen in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4.

“This was the first time I have done a two-a-day meet since coming to TCU,” Hammond said. “I was impressed with our total performance.”

The next match for the team will be against the Texas A&M Aggies on Thursday Feb. 22 in College Station.
