Morozova and Windom just returned from an impressive showing at the 2011 ITA/Riviera All-American Championships, where the duo made it to the quarterfinals of the Main Doubles Draw. The tandem, ranked 33rd in the Campbell/ITA Preseason Rankings, defeated opponents from No. 8 Virginia to make it to the quarterfinals, before being defeated by a duo from No. 3 Florida.
At KU’s last fall invitational at the Jayhawk Tennis Center in September, sophomore transfer Claire Dreyer was crowned champion of Singles Draw E while sophomore Amy Barnthouse placed fifth in Singles Draw G.
