Natasha Rizvi went 4-0 in singles and 2-1 in doubles this past weekend to lead the Air Force women’s tennis team to a 3-1 record. For her efforts, Rizvi has been named the Air Force co-athlete of the week.
Rizvi, a junior from Frisco, Texas, was the only Falcon to win a singles match against the University of Wyoming on Friday, defeating Silviya Zhelyazkova 6-4, 6-3 at the No. 3 spot. She won her other three singles matches in straight sets as well, including a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Mollie Cooper of Colorado State at No. 3 as the Falcons downed the Rams 7-0 on Sunday.
In doubles, Rizvi and sophomore Mary Meyers combined to defeat CSU’s top doubles team of Lauren Pick and Adriana Wojakowska, 8-6, and also won the No. 1 match against Katie Patterson and Caila Criss of Colorado College, 8-0.
Rizvi is 23-8 overall and 17-3 in dual singles matches this year and is 8-3 in doubles with Meyers.
