Petra Januskova Defeated at Intercollegiate Indoor Championship
Nov. 8, 2012
FLUSHING, N.Y. - Senior Petra Januskova was knocked out of the USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championship Thursday afternoon in Flushing, N.Y.
Januskova exited the tournament after losing to California's Zsofi Susanyi, 6-1, 6-0, in the round of 32. Earning a spot in the tournament after dominating her opponents and winning the ITA Atlantic Regional Tournament, the nation's No. 52 ranked player was faced with a very tough first round opponent.
Zsofi Susanyi is ranked No. 5 in the preseason rankings and the leader of the California Bears who finished last season ranked No. 7 in the team poll. Susanyi moves on to face the tournament's one-seed and the nation's No. 6 player, Lauren Embree of Florida.
Januskova will compete in the consolation draw tomorrow at the USTA-Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The rest of the Nittany Lions begin their final tournament of the season tomorrow in Kalamazoo, Mich. when they compete in the WMU Super Challenge.
