FLUSHING, N.Y. – Former Georgia Tech All-American Irina Falconi is one match away from qualifying for the U.S. Open after a 6-7 (4), 6-2, 6-2 come-from-behind win over No. 10-seeded Anastasia Pivovarova of Russia Friday.

Pivovarova is currently ranked No. 118 in the world and reached the third round of the 2010 French Open.
