Kolovou falls in tight final at Wake Forest Invitational

Sunday, October 07, 2012

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Oct. 7, 2012) – ETSU women’s tennis senior Antonia Kolovou (Larisa, Greece) competed in the top flight’s singles final on Sunday at the Wake Forest Invitational, but was outlasted in a third-set tiebreak by UNC Greensboro’s Nitooli Willkins, 6-4, 1-6, 7-6 (7-4).

Kolovou was the lone Buccaneer in action on Sunday, as Lyn Yee Choo (Kuching, Malaysia) and Anna Gerbasi (Mexico City, Mexico) left their Flight B back draw final against one another uncontested. ETSU’s four competitors went 8-5 in singles action through the three-day tournament.

“Antonia had a great tournament,” ETSU assistant coach Travis Sandlant said. “She was serving for the match, but, unfortunately, could not close it out. It’s essential to take opportunities.”

The ETSU women’s tennis team takes next weekend off before heading to West Lafayette, Ind. for the USTA/ITA Ohio Valley Regional Championships, beginning Wednesday, Oct. 17.
