Women's Tennis Falls to Washington State
March 5, 2018

BOISE, Idaho – Boise State women’s tennis fell to Washington State on Monday afternoon at Boas Indoor Complex.

The Broncos (5-5) met a hot Washington State (14-1) team that came into the day having won six-straight matches and dropped the match, 7-0.

“It was a tough one today. We came out playing the way we wanted to play in doubles, but lost a few of the no-ad points, which put us in a hole. We played well to get there, but we need to trust the things that will keep us running through the finish line,” explained head coach Beck Roghaar.

In doubles the Broncos battled, but lost the doubles point as the No. 1 duo of Wiktoria Nosek/Anja Dokic fell 6-1 to Barbora Michalkova/Melisa Ates. Then at No. 3 doubles, Vanessa Timm/Hanna Kantenwein fell to Michaela Bayerlova/Aneta Miksovska, 6-1 to drop the doubles point.

“Going into singles, I thought we did a good job of letting the doubles point go and we had a lot of tiebreakers in the first set,” said Roghaar. “We needed to continue to rely on what got us here in those big moments. That was tough today because Washington State was very confident coming in and they are playing incredibly well.”

The Broncos came out strong in singles, forcing a tiebreak on three courts in the first set. The biggest battle of the day in singles came from the Player of the Match, freshman Wilhelmina Palmer. She dropped the first set a No. two singles, 7-6 to Guzal Ysupova, but took the second set 7-5 to even things out. The freshman fought, but dropped the tiebreak, 10-8.

The Broncos are back in action on Friday as they host College of Idaho at 5 p.m. MT.
