NU Sports – Wildcats Continue to Impress at ITA Midwest Regionals

SINGLES MAIN DRAW (Bracket/Schedule)
DOUBLES MAIN DRAW (Bracket/Schedule)

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – With two days of action remaining at the 2018 ITA Midwest Regional Championships, a pair of Wildcats have advanced to the quarterfinals of the singles main draw.

Clarissa Hand has won all three of her matches thus far, dropping her first set of the tournament before winning six straight since then. The first year will face Giulia Pairone of host-school Michigan for a spot in the semifinals on Monday.

Julie Byrne also booked a spot in the quarterfinals with two consecutive victories after earning a bye in the first round. Byrne will go up against Chiara Lommer, also of the Wolverines, in a matchup of two players who have not yet dropped a set.


Northwestern performed well in the doubles main draw as well, as Wildcats made up two of the four teams in the semifinals. Byrne and Rheeya Doshi won three matches to reach the last four, as did the team of Lee Or and Inci Ogut, who came up with some clutch play in winning two of their three contests in tiebreakers.


The quarterfinals round of the singles draw is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Monday morning after the conclusion of the doubles final. All Northwestern results are listed below, and full updated brackets are available at the top of the page.
