Houston Tennis Completes Day One at Islanders Open

Charlotte Phillips

Sept. 15, 2012

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - Maja Kazimieruk and Charlotte Phillips highlighted action for the University of Houston tennis team in a rain-shortened opening day at the Islanders Open on Friday.

Kazimieruk, a senior from Poznan, Poland, kicked off the 2012 fall season with a dominating 6-3, 6-0 victory over Tatyana Postnikova of Sam Houston State to advance to the round of 16 on Saturday.

Phillips will also join Kazimieruk in the round of 16 as the sophomore from Nottinghamshire, U.K., posted a 6-4, 6-3 defeat of UTPA's Didi Fatchikova.

Houston's Jo Garvey and Gabriella Jansson fell in straight sets in their first matches of the 2012 tournament season and will compete in Saturday's consolation draw.

"We were able to overcome some first day nerves and improve as the day went along," assistant coach Jo Keene said. "Charlotte and Maja used their experience and got solid wins in both singles and doubles. Jo and Gabby came out and showed some positive signs in doubles, and really worked on the things we have been focusing on in practice. I think we have a great platform to continue to improve tomorrow."

Kazimieruk and Phillips also teamed up in doubles play to defeat UTPA's Fatchikova and Burobina by a score of 8-4 while battling the elements that eventually moved the match indoors.
