COLUMBUS, Ohio –
Third-seeded Kristi Miller, the nation’s eighth-ranked singles player, came back after falling behind 6-3, 3-1 to record a 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 win over Stanford’s 26th-ranked Anne Yelsey in Round of 32 action at the ITA National Indoors, which are being held at the Racquet Club of Columbus.
“It was good for Kristi to get through this first round,” said Georgia Tech head coach Bryan Shelton. “It’s always tough with such a strong field and not having the luxury of working into it easily, but at the same time we want to be playing the best players in the country. I’m very happy with Kristi’s start, and hopefully we can gain some momentum heading into tomorrow.”
Miller will face a familiar opponent in the Round of 16, as the sophomore All-American meets Duke’s 68th-ranked Jackie Carlton, who won in straight-sets in her first round match. The Round of 16 match is scheduled to begin no earlier than 12 noon Friday, with the winner advancing to the quarterfinals, which begin around 4:30 Friday afternoon.
