Sept. 30, 2006
PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. - Washington State University senior Amy Toth finished her run at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-American Championships after falling in the prequalifying singles and double draws, Saturday at the Riviera Tennis Club.
Toth, a London, Ontario, Canada native, won her first match in the singles draw. Toth needed three sets to take down Purdue's Cigdem Duru, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4. Toth then went up against Tennessee at Chattanooga's Anastasia Zhukova but was overmatched against the Moc. Zhukova took down Toth in straight sets, 6-0, 6-2.
Toth later teamed up with junior Ekaterina Burduli to compete in the prequalifying draw. The two were unsuccessful in advancing to the second round, as they fell to Petra Dizdar and Sarah Lancaster of Texas, 8-2. The loss ends Toth's run at the ITA All-American Championships.
Burduli will continue play in the qualifying draw, Tuesday Oct. 3. The top eight qualifiers from the prequalifying draw will compete in the qualifying draw. The top eight qualifiers in the qualifying draw will then be placed in the main draw and a winner will be determined from the top 64 student-athletes.
