In singles, multiple Tigers won their first set. Daniella Medvedeva swiftly won on court three, 6-0. Following Medvedeva, Eleni Louka won her first set 6-4 against No. 28 ranked singles player Julia Andreach. Alina Tsyurpalevych took her first set 6-4 against Akari Matsuno. 

Following the three other Tigers, Sophia Hatton won both of her sets 7-5, 6-1, and defeated Yashna Yellayi to claim the first point of the day.

Jenna Thompson fell to Nibi Ghosh 6-2, 7-5 shortly after. After Thompson fell, Eleni Louka battled hard against No. 28 Andreach. The match went to three sets, with Louka falling 6-0 in the second set and 6-3 in the last. The Tigers fought hard.
