Tournament Draws and Times

CHAPEL HILL, NC – The Clemson women’s tennis team posted a 7-1 overall mark on Friday at the ITA Carolina Regional Championships in Chapel Hill, NC. Top doubles seed Josipa Bek and Keri Wong advanced to the quarterfinals of the doubles championships, and six players earned first-round singles wins.

Bek and Wong, ranked fifth nationally, earned a 9-7 win over Zoe DeBruycker and Jennifer Stone of UNC on their home court to advance to the quarterfinals.

In singles, Bek won her match, 6-0, 6-2 over Mihaela Bunea of Coastal Carolina. Bek is the two-time defending champion and the top overall seed in the region. She will play at 9:00 am in the doubles quarterfinals with Wong, and then turn around for a second and possibly third-round singles match later in the day.

Wong is under the same set of circumstances, and she too advanced in the singles portion with a three-set win over Olga Makhova of Charleston Southern. Wong is ranked #39 in the nation and is the #5 seed in the region.
