Final Stats

FORT WORTH, Texas – The No. 61 TCU women’s tennis team extended its winning streak to two matches with a 4-3 win over Sacramento State on Friday in Seattle, Wash.

The Horned Frogs (5-5) had to fight back after the Hornets (1-6) secured the doubles point by winning tiebreakers on two courts. TCU outlasted Sacramento State’s strong effort and were victorious in four singles matches to claim the team win.

Mimi Fotopoulos came back after sitting out last weekend with an injury to team up with Sofiko Kadzhaya to win on court three of doubles 8-5. The Frogs dropped two heartbreakers on courts one and two, as Sacramento State won both tiebreakers to win the doubles point.

TCU did not stay down for long, as Kadzhaya kept up her winning ways by dropping Katharina Knoebl on court four with a 6-4, 6-0 victory. TCU also picked up a win at the No.6 singles position, as Seda Arantekin downed Olivia Boija 6-1, 7-6.

For the second week in a row, No. 52 Stefanie Tan and Simona Parajova went undefeated on courts No. 1 and 2 in singles action. Tan quickly took care of Jennifer Nguyn 6-3, 6-0, while Parajova earned a 6-3, 6-1 win over Alina Soltanici. The duo remains undefeated in dual matches for the season in singles play.

TCU will stay in Seattle and will take on No. 24 Washington at 2 p.m., CST on Saturday at the Nordstrom Tennis Center. A live stream of the match can be found at, with final results and a recap available on following the completion of the competition.
