Zenovka Selected for ITA Fall Nationals


Oct. 27, 2017


FORT WORTH, Texas – TCU women’s tennis player Aleksandra Zenovka was one of 23 at-large selections that will compete in the inaugural 2017 Oracle ITA National Fall Championships that will take place from Nov. 1-5 at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, Calif.

Zenovka joins the 41 other automatic qualifiers at the inaugural fall championships. The event, which serves as the conclusion of the fall collegiate tennis season, will include 128 of the nation’s top collegiate singles players (64 men and 64 women) and 64 doubles teams (32 men’s teams and 32 women’s teams). The event replaces the ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships.

“This is really special for Aleksandra and our entire program,” head coach Lee Taylor Walker said. “For over three years, I have witnessed Aleksandra learn and grow and transform on and off the court. Her commitment to excellence is inspiring and her willingness to put the work in and have hard conversations is something I really appreciate. It hasn't been an easy road for Aleksandra. There have been hard times personally for her and also injuries. Many players would've thrown in the towel, but Aleksandra has persevered with a grateful attitude and I'm so happy she has put herself in this position to go to nationals. We've celebrated and will continue to enjoy the experience, but we also know Aleksandra is not done yet. She's proven she's able to compete with anyone and I'm confident she will be successful.”

Zenovka is leading the team with an 8-3 mark in singles action as she recently made a run to the semifinals of the ITA Texas Regional Championships presented by Oracle. The No. 122 ranked singles player has defeated two ranked opponents in the three tournaments played this fall. Last season, Zenovka scored 10 wins in singles and brought down one ranked opponent while playing at the No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 positions. The senior also picked up nine wins in doubles action.
