The University of Kansas doubles tandem of senior Ekaterina Morozova and sophomore Dylan Windom has been ranked 33rd nationally in the Campbell/ITA Preseason Rankings, administered by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. Morozova was also tabbed 76th in the preseason singles poll.
Last season, Morozova and Windom ended the season ranked fifth in the Central Region and No. 67 nationally by ITA. The duo went 15-7 in No. 1 doubles play, including a 6-5 record in the Big 12 and a 2-1 record against nationally-ranked opponents. They were also named to the All-Big 12 Doubles Team.
The duo has also been selected to the main draw of the 2011 ITA/Riviera Women’s All-American Tennis Championships, with Morozova earning a spot in the qualifying singles draw.
The Championships begin Oct. 1 with two days of singles and doubles pre-qualifying play on the campus of UCLA. Qualifying will then run Oct. 4-5 in Pacific Palisades, Calif., and the main draws will take place Oct. 6-9.
Morozova and Windom become the first University of Kansas tennis athletes to be selected straight to the main draw since Eveline Hamers qualified in 1990.
