Four Tigers were in the draws at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center Women's College Invitational when play began Friday, and the Princeton foursome turned in a successful first day at the three-day event.

Three of the four, including Sivan Krems, Dorothy Tang and Caroline Joyce, won their first-round singles matches and will play in quarterfinals Saturday. All four enjoyed first-round doubles wins, though only Cannon and Krems were able to gain a berth in a doubles semifinal Saturday.
