KU tennis’ Morozova upsets ranked player

March 28, 2011


Kansas University tennis player Ekaterina Morozova knocked off 18th-ranked Nazari Urbina on Sunday afternoon at the Jayhawk Tennis Center, but the Jayhawks lost to No. 25 Texas A&M;, 6-1.

The Kansas junior defeated Urbina, 6-4, 6-1. It was the first time since 2005 that a Jayhawk earned a victory over a top-30 opponent. Ksenia Bukina was the last player to match that feat October 20, 2005, defeating No. 30.

KU’s only other victory Sunday was in doubles. Morozova teamed with Dylan Windom to defeat Urbina and Christi Liles, 8-1.
