Niedermayerova shines for K-State tennis in Indiana


Senior Petra Niedermayerova dominated at the Hoosier Classic for the K-State Wildcats women’s tennis team in Bloomington, Ind. over the weekend, grabbing two singles wins. As a whole, the Wildcats earned eight singles wins.

Niedermayerova, ranked as the 12th-best singles player in the country, recovered from her loss at the K-State Fall Invitational with her two wins, putting her singles record at 2-1 this season. She bested Nini Sujashvili of Western Michigan 6-2, 6-2 on Saturday then beat Diana Davitaia of Eastern Michigan on Sunday 6-4, 6-2.

Freshman Riley Nizzi also performed well for the Wildcats in Indiana, going 2-1 in her singles matches over the weekend. Her record now stands at 5-1 on the season after going 3-0 at the K-State Fall Invitational.

Because of her ranking and impressive play early on, Niedermayerova will compete in the main draw of the 2013 Riviera/ITA Women’s All-American Championships, which start on Oct. 2. The rest of the team has off until Oct. 17, when they travel to Norman, Okla. for the ITA Central Regional.
