WACO, Texas (10/25/10) - Junior Paula Dinuta reached the consolation final after she fought her way to a 2-0 record during the ITA Texas Regional on Monday from the Baylor Tennis Center.
Dinuta had the remarkable achievement of making it through both matches unscathed.
"Paula played pretty well today," said associate head coach Jeff Maren. "She took care of her business and took down two pretty good opponents in very windy conditions. I know she's really looking forward to the consolation finals tomorrow morning against a fellow Romanian. This tournament has been a good experience for her and will help her in the regional rankings. "
The junior made quick work of Houston's Joanna Kacprzyk winning easily, 6-0, 6-0 before beating Sam Houston State's Anrinette Botha with the same 6-0, 6-0 score.
Dinuta will take on cross-town rival Texas-Arlington's Daiana Negreanu in the consolation final Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. at the University of Texas-Arlington Tennis courts.
