K-State tennis blanked by No. 10 Nebraska

By The Mercury

LINCOLN, Neb. — The 32nd-ranked Kansas State women’s tennis team looked for its second win over a Top 25 opponent this season, but No. 10 Nebraska defended its home court with a 7-0 win on Saturday at the Nebraska Tennis Center.

This was the first shut out K-State has suffered this season and the first since last March against Memphis.

Petra Niedermayerova — ranked 17th — captured the first set at No. 1 singles, but No. 16 Mary Weatherholt extended the match and defeated Niedermayerova, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. The loss ended a seven-match winning streak for Niedermayerova, which included a five-match winning streak in three-set matches. The junior from Brno, Czech Republic is 21-6 this season and owns a career mark of 69-29 including a 42-11 record at No. 1 singles.

K-State will travel to the state of Oklahoma for the second time this season when the Wildcats open Big 12 action at No. 27 Oklahoma State on Friday, followed by a trip to No. 37 Oklahoma next Sunday.
