Rychagova advances in consolation at ITA All-American
PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – Kansas junior Anastasia Rychagova earned two wins Friday to advance in the main singles draw consolation bracket at the Riviera ITA Women’s All-American in Pacific Palisades, California at the the Riviera Tennis Club.
In her first match of the day, Rychagova, who is ranked No. 35 in the preseason poll, downed the No. 17-ranked Arianne Hartono of Ole Miss, 6-2, 6-0. She then defeated Florida’s No. 15-ranked Anna Danilina, 6-7 (6), 7-5, 6-3.
“Nas (Rychagova) fought incredibly hard (Friday),” said assistant coach Caroline Lilley. “She responded to a tough battle (Thursday) with poise, grit and professionalism. I could not be more proud of how she represented herself and Kansas Tennis. When she gets knocked down, she comes back even stronger, which is a testament to the competitive standard she holds herself to. What an amazing day for Nas and for the Jayhawks!”
Next, Rychagova will face the No. 3 seeded Melissa Lord of Stanford at 12 p.m., CT.
