URBANA, Ill. — Nebraska senior Mary Weatherholt knew her first match Wednesday at the NCAA singles championships wouldn’t be easy.
She faced UNLV’s Alexsandra Josifoska, whom she beat 6-3, 6-1 just a few weeks ago in the second round of the NCAA team tournament. That match was tighter than it looked, she said.
