Seminoles Finish Strong On Day One at Debbie Southern Fall Classic.
The Noles take three singles matches to three sets.

GREENVILLE, SC - The Florida State women's tennis team began their 2017 season Friday at the Debbie Southern Fall Classic hosted by Furman.

"We were very happy to see how our girls competed today," said assistant coach Jaime Sanchez-Canamares Rios. "The first day of competition and first matches are always tough and the girls did a fantastic job."

The duo of sophomore Andrea Garcia and freshman Petra Hule fell in their first doubles match 8-5, but came back to take down their second opponent of the day 8-1. The pair defeated Danielle Wolf and Andrea Ballinger of Ohio State.

"Petra and Andrea had a great win today against the Ohio State team of Danielle Wolf and Andrea Ballinger," said Sanchez-Canamares Rios. "They played at a high level of tennis and they performed extremely well. Same for Gabby (Goldin) and Lucie (Prochazkova). They defeated a Vanderbilt team playing very well on key moments and showed a lot of confidence, which is great because that's our goal during these tournaments."

Sophomore Gabrielle Goldin and freshman Lucie Prochazkova were defeated in a heartbreaker of a first match, 8-7(6), to Texas Longhorns Chelsea Crovettie and Katie Poluta. The freshman and sophomore duo were able to win their second match of the day as they took down Lauren Gish and Payton Robinette of Vanderbilt, 8-6.

"We were proud coaches today watching them competing," said Sanchez-Canamares Rios. "Our freshmen Lucie and Petra did incredible in their first matches wearing the garnet and gold. Lucie won a very competitive match in 3 sets while Petra showed her potential against a great Tennessee player."

Sophomore Ariana Rahmanparast and partner sophomore Nandini Das fell to their opponents in both of their doubles matches. They fell 8-2 to Emily Smith and Fermanda Contreras of Vanderbilt and 8-6 to Katty Weymouth and Danni Vines of Furman.

In singles play, Das fell in the first set 6-3 to Tea Jandric of Ole Miss. However, she came back in the second set to win 6-3, but fell in the final set 6-0. Prochazkova defeated Aryn Greene of Furman in her first collegiate singles match, 4-6, 6-4, 7-5.

September 24, 2017

GREENVILLE, SC - The Florida State women's tennis team wrapped up play at the Debbie Southern Fall Classic on Sunday three more wins.

"Overall we were happy with how the girls performed this weekend during their first fall event," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "It was great to get back in to a competition mindset, and gauge exactly where we are at this point in the season. It was great to get the bulk of the team together for a road trip and time together after the long summer break. We definitely missed the three others who were back in Tallahassee, but will have lots of trips together coming up."

Freshman Petra Hule won her match against Danielle Wolf of Ohio State in a close one. Hule lost set one 3-6 but fought back in set two in three to win 7-5, 7-6(6). Freshman Lucie Prochazkova earned third due to a default.

"Petra (Hule) finished off today in woo fashion," said Hyde. "She had a very tough three set match where she was down 2-5 in the third set. She saved two match points at 4-5 to even the score at 5-5. Then, in the third set tie breaker, she was down 3-6 (3 more match points down), and won 5 straight points to win the tiebreaker and the match. That kind of fight is what being a Seminole is all about."

Sophomore Gabby Goldin took on Cameron Kriscunas of Ole Miss in her third place match. Goldin took lost the first set 6-7(2), but came back in dominate fashion defeating Kriscunas 6-4, 6-1 in the final two sets.

"Same goes for GG (Gabby Goldin)," said Hyde. "She fought her way through a very tough three set match, coming out on top. I'm glad she was able to finish off the weekend in a high note."

Junior Ariana Rahmanparast took on Danni Ruiz of Clemson in the final of her bracket. Rahmanparast came out strong taking the first set 6-1. Ruiz did what Hule and Godlin did and made a two set comeback winning sets two and three, 6-2, 6-2. Rahmanparast took second in her draw.

"Ari was playing for her flight championship, and came up just short in yet another three set match," said Hyde. "She played some solid tennis this weekend."

Sophomore Nandini Das fell short in her match for fifth place as Amanda Meyer from Vanderbilt defeated her 7-6, 6-2. Andrea Garcia was taken down by Carol Elizabeth Kelman of Furman 6-3, 6-4.

Junior Ariana Rahmanparast added to the win column with a straight set win over Samantha Memije of Michigan State, 6-3, 6-4.

"Ari jumped out to a set lead, then fell behind in the second set," said Hyde. "She fought her way back to a win in the second set, doing another great job of making some adjustments and showing some solid fight."

Freshman Petra Hule fell in three sets to Allie Miller of Notre Dame, 6-4, 5-7, 6-2. Fellow Seminole, sophomore Andrea Garcia was not so lucky either. She took the first set from her opponent 7-5, but could not hold on as Inci Ogut from Northwestern won sets two and three, 6-4, 6-2.

I feel like mentally, maybe even a bit more so than physically, today was a critical day for the girls. We got over some mental barriers, and there is so much confidence that can come from finding success as you get through those mental battles. That is what I am most proud of today, and I think that speaks a lot to the toughness of our team."

In doubles at the Bedford Cup, Florida State earned two third-place finishes. At the Wildcat Invitational, the Seminoles took home a singles and a doubles championship.

"Going 6-0 to finish off the weekend, and bringing home two flight championships at the Wildcat Invitational feels really good," said head coach Jennifer Hyde.

Senior Gabby Castaneda and sophomore Gabby Goldin defeated Irina Karangozishvili and Eva Nyikos of North Florida, 6-4, for third place at The Bedford Cup. Freshman Lucie Prochazkova and her partner Emilia Granstrom also earned third place in their doubles flight shutting out Jennifer Leib and Marisa Ruiz from FAU 6-0.

In singles, Castaneda squared off against Jessica Cortes from USF in the consolation finals. She brought down Cortes, 6-3, 6-4.

"It was a great weekend to work on things that needed polishing," said Castaneda. "It felt amazing to be out their competing in the first fall tournament of my senior year. I look forward to continuing to work hard alongside my team in preparation for the season."

Goldin defeated Alexandria Mjos of USF in two sets. She started off with a 6-3 win in the first set and finished off Mjos with a 6-4 win in the second set. With that win, Goldin took home third place in her flight.

"After a lot of tennis, it was important to finish strong," said assistant coach Jaime Sanchez-Canamares Rios. "Gabby (Castaneda) and Gabby (Goldin) played great matches today."

Freshman Lucie Prochazkova took on Vicky Geurinckx from Stetson in the consolation finals. She fought in a tough three-set match that resulted in a win for Geurinckx. The first set went 6-2 in favor of Prochazkoa, but she lost the second set 6-3. In the third set, Prochazkova and Geurinckx went into a tiebreaker. Geurinckx came out on top 7-6(3).

"Lucie had a really long and hard match with good moments," said Sanchez-Canamares Rios. "She did a lot of positive things that she will be able to build off of."

The Garnet and Gold finished off the Wildcat Invitational in dominating fashion. All four Noles won their singles matches, including a singles championship from sophomore Nandini Das, and a doubles championship from freshman Petra Hule and sophomore Andrea Garcia.

Das took on Aslina Chua from Michigan State in the finals. She took the first set from Chua 7-5. Das did not let Chua get a point in the second set as she shut her out 6-0.

"A big congrats to Nandini for winning her singles flight this weekend," said Hyde. "She's showing a lot of growth and maturity in her game and in how she is competing. She is taking many steps in the right direction this fall."

Junior Ariana Rahmanparast defeated Georgie Sanders from UIC in straight sets 6-3, 6-4.

"Ari struggled to find her range yesterday, but came out today playing much more consistent tennis," said Hyde. "That is her biggest strength, and she was very solid today."

Hule and Garcia both went three sets in their final matches. Hule took the first set 6-1 but lost the second set 6-4. The third set was close, but Hule was able to squeak out a 7-6 third set win.

"Petra did a great job battling out a third set tiebreaker to win her match today," said Hyde. "She was composed and level-headed, and that helped her a lot today."

Garcia lost the first set 6-1 but made a complete turnaround in sets two and three. Garcia did not allow Margo Pletcher of Utah to win a game in sets two and three, winning 6-0, 6-0 in the final two sets.

"Andrea started a little slow in singles, but settled in nicely and did exactly what she needed to do to win today," said Hyde.

In doubles, the Noles kept it rolling going 2-0. Hule and Garcia brought home the doubles championship in the Maroon bracket as they defeated Callie Frey and Luisa Varon from Pitt, 6-3. Das and Rahmanparast defeated Georgie Sanders and Lujla Colic of UIC, 6-4.

The Noles went a perfect 6-0 between singles and doubles on the last day of the Wildcat Invitational.

"Overall, I like how we are competing right now," said Hyde. "We still have so much to work on this fall and things to sharpen up. I'm happy with how we performed and competed. I'm very excited looking ahead to preparing for and competing in our ITA Regionals in 3 weeks."

HONOLULU, HI – The Florida State women’s tennis team (1-0) earned their first win of the season in Hawai’i with a 7-0 shutout of Utah (0-1).

“It was a pretty good start to the season,” said head coach Jennifer Hyde. “It felt like the girls did a really good job of controlling things in singles. Doubles was pretty good.”

The Seminoles started the day with a big doubles win against the Utes. The Noles trailed 1-2 on all three courts. They were able to fight back and win two of the three courts to earn the doubles point and take a 1-0 lead.

On court one, junior Julia Mikulski and sophomore Andrea Garcia trailed 3-5 but fought to take a 6-5 lead before heading into a tiebreaker. The Seminole duo defeated the No. 60 ranked Utah pair of Brianna Turley and Margo Pletcher in the tiebreaker 7-1.

The Utes tied it up on court three as they defeated senior Gabby Castaneda and junior Ariana Rahmanparast 6-4.

The Garnet and Gold clinched the doubles point on court two as sophomore Carla Touly and freshman Petra Hule battled from being down 2-3 to win the match 6-4.

“You are always going to have tight matches when you are playing six game sets in doubles so you don’t ever expect it to be anything but close,” said Hyde. “We held on pretty well and we fought back from some deficits to get the doubles point, which is pretty critical and always will be.”

The Noles got off to a hot start in singles, winning the first set on five of the six courts which eventually lead to a Seminole Sweep of singles.

Garcia got things started for Florida State as she quickly earned a 6-1, 6-2 victory on court six. Mikulski quickly followed breezing through her opponent on court four 6-3, 6-1, giving the Seminoles a 3-0 match lead.

Touly, in her first singles match as a Seminole after a year wait, made it a good one. She clinched the match for the Garnet and Gold. In the first set, she was down 4-0 but stormed back to take the set 7-5 and then the second set 6-4.

“It feels great,” said Touly. “I was a little bit tired at the beginning and the end, but I did it. I am really glad that everyone won, it makes it a perfect day.”

Already with the match in hand, Florida State continued the sweep with Hule giving the Noles a 5-0 advantage after a straight-set win on court three, 6-3, 6-2.

Castaneda and Rahmanparast finished off the Utes, both in third set 10 point tiebreakers. Castaneda won 10-3 and Rahmanparast won 10-6 in the third set.

“We did a great job of controlling every court in singles,” said Hyde. “We had a few mental lapses here and there, but all and all I think we played pretty clean today. We will definitely be using the next two day of match play to get sharper with what is ahead. We competed unbelievably well as a team and that is going to be something we see from this team. They are hardcore competitors and it is fun to be a part of that and watch them out there grinding it out.”

Women's Tennis Has Stellar Day at the Rainbow Wahine Invitational.
Noles go 4-0 in doubles and 7-1 in singles

January 13, 2018

HONOLULU, HI - The Florida State women's tennis team (1-0) began play on Saturday in the Rainbow Wahine Invitational after a brief scare that saw the state of Hawai'i get put under a ballistic missile warning. The tournament consists of Florida State, University of Hawai'i and Utah in individual singles and doubles play.

"It was another very solid day for us today," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "After a very big scare here in Hawaii this morning, the girls did an amazing job of compartmentalizing and got right to work. We came out winning all four doubles matches, and played a bit better today than yesterday."

The day started with doubles play that showcased the Seminoles going a perfect 4-0.

Senior Gabby Castaneda and junior Ariana Rahmanparast defeated Taylor Laua and Michelle Pits of Hawai'i 6-1. Sophomore Andrea Garcia and junior Julia Mikulski defeated Petra Melounova and Roxanne Resma of Hawai'i 6-4.

Sophomore Carla Touly and freshman Petra Hule defeated Brianna Turley and Margo Pletcher of Utah 7-5.

"Pep and Carla got behind 2-5 in their set, and won 5 straight games to finish," said Hyde. "Big fight shown by them to bring that deficit back."

Sophomore Gabby Goldin and freshman Lucie Prochazkova rounded out the Noles perfect doubles round with a 6-4 win over Victoria Robertson and Taylor Calton of Utah.

In singles, Rahmanparast fell behind early in the first set, 1-4, but was able to fight back and take the first set from Whitney Turley of Utah 7-5. In the second set, she was able to take care of her opponent a little easier, 6-3.

"Ari got behind 1-4 in her first set, and made some immediate and crucial adjustments that paid off," said Hyde. "She grabbed that set 7-5 and did a great job closing out the second set 6-3. She really worked to find her range and did so after a bit of a slow start."

Garcia had a much easier time than her teammate as she breezed through Leah Heimuli of Utah 6-1, 6-2.

"Andrea rolled today," said Hyde. "She's playing with a lot of confidence and is playing her game very specifically. I was very pleased with her play today."

Touly is continuing to get used to playing at the college tennis level but has improved to 2-0 as she took down Alexia Petrovic of Utah 6-4, 6-2.

"Carla played through some college tennis adversity today, but did a great job of using her maturity and experience to put things to rest," said Hyde. "She is learning a lot this weekend and competing very hard."

Castaneda fought in a tough match but was able to defeat Brianna Turley of Utah 7-5, 7-6 to become yet another Seminole to earn both a doubles and singles victory on the day.

"Gabby hasn't been 100% healthy these last three days yet found a way to win another 3rd set tiebreaker again today," said Hyde. "She's competing with a lot of focus and intention. I'm proud of her efforts today."

Mikulski was one of two Seminoles to go three sets on the day. After losing the first set 7-6, she turned it around and fought hard to win set two 7-6 and then the third set tiebreaker 11-9.

"Jules let some leads slip today, but she found a way to hang around while not playing her best tennis," said Hyde. "Today was an absolute mental battle for Jules, and I could not be more proud of her efforts in battling for a win in a third set tiebreaker. It's easy to win if you are playing your best, but 100% more difficult when you aren't. Jules found a way, and you have to love seeing that heart and fight from her. That was a big effort."

Hule wrapped up the winning for the Garnet and Gold as she took down Marina Hruba of Hawaii 6-4, 6-2.

Goldin fell behind early, losing set one 6-4, but fought back to take the second set, before falling in the final set.

"Gabby gave a big fight in her match today," said Hyde. "Her opponent didn't give GG an inch and made very few unforced errors. After losing the first set, she rallied hard and took a commanding lead quickly in the second set, and lost a close one in the third set."

Lucie Prochazkova also fell in a hard fought battle as well, losing 6-4, 6-3.

"It was good to Lucie compete hard out there today," said Hyde. "She played well against a seasoned Utah opponent, but just came up short."

"I am seeing a lot of fight in this team already, and it speaks very highly of where we are at this point in the season. We have one more day of tennis tomorrow, and a few more chances to keep improving. I look forward to finishing this amazing trip off on the highest note possible."


Women's Tennis Wraps Up Play in Hawai'i.
Noles go 5-2 in singles and 2-2 in doubles.

HONOLULU, HI - The Florida State women's tennis team (1-0) finished up the Rainbow Wahine Invitational on Sunday after spending a week in Hawai'i. The Seminoles went 2-2 in doubles and 5-2 in singles.

"It has been a pretty amazing trip for our team," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "We have played a ton of tennis and have a bunch of matches under our belt after the break. I am really liking what I am seeing from this team. There is very good chemistry and solid culture built into this team that is going to be a big difference maker for us this season. I am loving the way we are competing in all of our matches. It is like we have found another level, but I know we have many more levels to get to this season."

The duos of sophomore Andrea Garcia and junior Julia Mikulski, along with sophomore Carla Touly and freshman Petra Hule, earned the two Seminole doubles wins. Garcia and Mikulski defeated Whitney Turley and Leah Heimuli of Utah 6-3, while Touly and Hule took down Klara Pribylova and Nikola Dolakova of Hawai'i 6-0.

In singles, Mikulski, junior Ariana Rahmanparast, Garcia, Touly and freshman Lucie Prochazkova all came out on top.

Mikulski breezed through her opponent, Jasmine Rich of Utah, 6-1, 6-2. Rahmanparast took down her opponent pretty handily as well, as she defeated Victoria Robertson of Utah 6-2, 6-3. Touly improved her record to 3-0 on the year as she conquered Roxanne Resma of Hawai'i in straight sets 6-2, 6-2. Garcia got off to an early lead, winning set one 6-3. She was not as fortunate in set two as she fell to Alzbeta Houbova of Hawai'i 6-1. Garcia was able to regain her composure and defeat Houbova 11-9 in a tough third set battle. Prochazkova earned her first win of the fall by overpowering Taylor Calton of Utah, 6-4, 4-6, 10-6.

"We are off to a fantastic start and we have our focus very narrowly set on a match with Illinois next week," said Hyde. "I am proud with how we competed all weekend and am really excited to get back to Tallahassee and get ready for what is ahead the next two weekends."
