MILWAUKEE, Wis. - The Western Michigan women's tennis team wrapped up their solid opening weekend with a good showing at the Milwaukee Tennis Classic, with several players building on good starts to the weekend with impressive finishes.

Senior Jill Pastunink wrapped what ended up being a perfect 3-0 weekend in singles play at the Classic, defeating Marquette's Aleeza Kanner in the afternoon session. Pastunink picked up three breaks in the first set and held her own serve in taking the first set, and overcame Kanner's comeback attempt in winning the match 6-0, 6-4. Pastunink was a stalwart in singles play this weekend, having also defeated Xavier's Andrea Wolf and Detroit's Julia Fernandes on Friday and Saturday, respectively.

Junior Nini Sujashvili was also successful in singles play on Sunday, securing her first win of the season by defeating Marquette's Rocio Diaz. The pair played two tight sets, but Sujashvili won a second set tiebreaker to win the mach 6-4, 7-6.

In doubles play, the tandem of Maggie Remynse and Kelsey King were able to build on their successful individual weekends, as the duo defeated Xavier's Lizzie Oosterbaan and Ally Westling 8-5 in the morning session. The win was the third overall victory of the weekend for King, as the freshman picked up a singles and a doubles victory on the first and second days of the tournament, respectively. The win was the second straight victory for Remynse, who won her singles match on Raina Halabi on Saturday afternoon.
