Miller Falls in NCAA Quarterfinals

May 26, 2007

Athens, Ga.–Georgia Tech’s Kristi Miller fell to fourth-seeded Lindsey Nelson of Southern California in the quarterfinal round of the NCAA Singles Championship, Saturday at Henry Field Stadium. Nelson won in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3.

Miller, the junior all-America who led Tech to the NCAA team title earlier this week, was the tournament’s sixth seed.

“I had trouble holding serve,” said Miller, a native of Marysville, Mich. “I had opportunities after breaking her serve, but I couldn’t capitalize. The games were close, and I had chances, but I just couldn’t capitalize.

“She hits a lot of winners, so it’s tough to play someone like that this late in the tournament. I’ve played a lot of tennis this week, but that’s not what lost the match.”

Tech’s all-time leader in singles wins, Miller finishes the season with a record of 34-11. Her career slate stands at 117-29.
