NORMAN, Okla. – OU women’s tennis senior Ana-Maria Constantinescu and freshman Alice Radu open competition at the 2010 USTA/ITA Indoor Intercollegiate Championships Thursday, Nov. 4, at the USTA-Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y.
The duo earned a spot in the tournament after winning the central region doubles title on Oct. 25 in Fayetteville, Ark. The OU duo defeated the region’s top-ranked Claudine Paulson and Anouk Tigu of Arkansas, 8-5, in the championship match.
"Ana and Alice have not had the best preparation leading up to this event due to sickness and injury but they both appear to be 100% now and are ready for the challenge,” OU head coach David Mullins said. “They have great chemistry and complement each other very well so I believe they will definitely be a threat in New York.”
The tournament begins Thursday with the doubles round of 16 and singles round of 32 at 9 a.m.
