Women’s tennis ace wraps up career as national singles runner-up
Senior Zuzana Zemenova very nearly wrapped up her four years at Baylor in a storybook fashion, advancing all the way to the finals of the NCAA Women’s Tennis Singles Championships before being defeated in her final match.
Zemenova burst onto the scene as a freshman in 2005 by winning the national title in singles, and she leaves Baylor as the most acclaimed player in program history. Four years, four Big 12 Player of the Year awards (the first student-athlete in any sport in the conference’s history to do that), and four seasons as an all-American (also a conference record).
The upcoming issue of Baylor Magazine (hitting homes this week) includes a nice feature on Zemenova. Last but not least, BaylorBears.com provides one final update to that story, noting that the Slovakian native will turn pro and begin her career later this summer.
Sic ’em, ZZ!
