Boczova Secures Fourth Player of the Week Plaudit

Melbourne, Fla. – For the fourth time this season, Klaudia Boczova of the Lynn University women's tennis team has been tabbed as the Sunshine State Conference Player of the Week, as announced by the league office on Monday.

Boczova continues to dominate SSC competition as she went 6-0 this week at the top singles and doubles positions to help fourth-ranked Lynn to a 2-1 mark in league play - all against nationally-ranked opponents.

The Fighting Knights first suffered a tough 5-4 setback to then-No. 4 Barry before bouncing back and taking down No. 26 Nova Southeastern, 8-1, and No. 24 Tampa, 7-2.

At No. 1 doubles, Boczova and Eliska Petrackova improved to 11-0 in pairs play on the season and picked up two big upsets this week. They first took down Barry's 14th-ranked duo of Sonja Larsen and Verena Schmid, 8-6, before defeating NSU's 10th-ranked pair of Andrea Ivanovic and Daniella Obando, 8-3. They capped the week with an 8-2 win at Tampa.

In singles, 11th-ranked Boczova started the week with her biggest win of the season, dominating undefeated and second-ranked Sonja Larsen, 6-2, 6-0. Larsen had won an incredible 44 straight singles matches in dual play coming into the matchup with Boczova and has spent the majority of the season ranked No. 1 in the country. She then took down NSU's 26th-ranked Ana Navas, 7-5, 6-3, before winning at Tampa, 6-0, 6-0. Her double bagel at Tampa is the fourth time this season she did not drop a game in a singles match.

On the season, Boczova is 18-1 in doubles and undefeated in singles at 19-0. She has yet to lose a set in singles action and has taken down eight nationally-ranked foes.

Boczova now has four SSC weekly honors to her name this season, and five overall in her career dating back to her time at Nova Southeastern in 2016. She is currently tied with Larsen for the league-high in selections this season with four. The duo has combined for eight of the 10 awards so far this year.
