Marovic, Strohm fall shy of ITA Regional doubles title
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- University of Texas seniors Mia Marovic (Split, Croatia) and Kendra Strohm (Tucson, Ariz.) collected a semifinal victory but came up just short in the doubles final Tuesday at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Southwest Regional Championships at Texas A&M's Mitchell Tennis Center.
After eliminating Texas A&M's Anna Blagodarova and Tiffany Clifford by a 9-7 count in the semifinals, Marovic and Strohm fell on the short end of an 8-5 defeat to TCU's Helena Besovic and Anna Sydorska in the final. A win would have given the Texas tandem the regional title and an automatic berth in next month's ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships at Ohio State.
Texas junior Petra Dizdar (Split, Croatia) made the most of her appearance in the consolation bracket, defeating Baylor's Zuzana Krchnakova by a 6-1, 7-5 margin to win the draw.
