May 19, 2009
Arizona freshman Natasha Marks will travel to College Station, Texas to represent the Wildcats in the 2009 Division I Women's Tennis Championships May 20-25.
In the round of 64, Marks will take on sixth seeded Fani Chifchieva of Auburn on Wednesday, May 20 at 12:30 p.m.
Chifchieva is currently ranked No. 6 in the nation, and went 26-8 overall in the 2008-09 season.
Marks finished off her freshman season 19-10 in singles, 12-8 for the dual matches.
'Natasha is eager to take the court after a few weeks off.' Said head coach Vicky Maes, 'She has a tough challenge drawing the sixth seed, but everyone here is good so it will be a challenge either way. Facing a new opponent will help her play loose which is when she's at her best anyway.'
