You can follow the scores here: ZZ already won, 6-1, 7-6 (7-0 in the tiebreaker!) and is in the Round of 16. The #1 seed, Megan Bradley from Miami (and I think daughter of former Seattle Mariner, Phil Bradley, if I recall correctly) lost today to a girl from VCU.

Carolin Walter is down a set (6-1) and 3-2 in the second, so let's hope for a comeback and have two girls in the Sweet 16, but either way, they've already done great...congrats to our FRESHMAN and SOPHOMORE, ZZ and Carolin...even better days ahead for women's tennis and this was an incredible season!

By the way, Walter is playing the #3 seed in the tournament from Northwestern...ZZ will now play a girl named Anne Yelsey from national champion, Stanford.

Are you ready for this? She played #6 singles at Stanford...she is one of SEVEN players that Stanford has in the singles tournament - that's right, seven...a team only plays 6 players at the singles spots, which shows how ridiculously deep they are! They went 3-7 in the 1st round, but they had the #1 player in the nation have to forfeit due to injury after dropping a first set tiebreaker.

ZZ can play with anyone - she played the #2 seed earlier in the season (Julie Coin from Clemson) and was 5-5 in the 3rd set when we won the match, so she is capable of keeping this thing going!

Walter is 4-4 in the 2nd set now - go, Carolin!

Zuzana Zemenova became an All-American today with her victory in the NCAA Tournament. She joins Katja Kovac (Baylor's all-time singles leader) in that special category. Way to go, ZZ! :cool:

[Stanford] had the #1 player in the nation have to forfeit due to injury after dropping a first set tiebreaker.

#1 in the nation on that bracket was M. Bradley from Miami, Fl. I believe the player who retired (A. Liu) was ranked #7, and by losing helped ZZ since ZZ and Liu were scheduled to meet up in the 2nd round.

[Stanford] went 3-7 in the 1st round,...

Actually, the Stanford women compiled a 3-4 record in the 1st round.
