National Tennis Center Welcomes Women's Tennis for Invitational
In the second of three straight weekends of competition, the Princeton women's tennis team will head to the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York for the USTA BJK NTC Women's College Invitational beginning Friday.
Players will compete in eight singles draws of 16 players each. Princeton has players in each of the top six draws, and the Tigers in the top five of those draws are among the four seeded players in each bracket. The complete list of Princeton competitors is below.
In doubles play, four Tigers will form two pairs over the top two doubles draws.
