The rematch is set for 3 p.m.
In the lower half of the bracket, North Carolina's Sara Anundsen and Jenna Long, seeded 5-8, will take on another 5-8 seed, Lucia Sainz and Katharina Winterhalter of Fresno State, who knocked off the second-seeded Miami duo of Audra Cohen and Melissa Applebaum in straight-sets this afternoon.
