A Tel Aviv, Israel native, Burduli downed Dartmouth's Molly Scott, 6-2, 6-2 to win her second tournament of the season.
'We are all proud of Eka and the way she fought through the tournament,' WSU Head Coach Lisa Hart said. 'She is such a fierce competitor and faced tough competition throughout the tournament. She was determined from the very beginning to win this event and that is exactly what she did.'
Budruli defeated Princeton's Ivana King in the quarterfinal round and benefited from a default in the semifinal round to advance to the Monday finals.
