The senior’s win pushes her through to the second round of the 32-person qualifying draw. She will need two more wins to qualify for the 32-person main draw.
“It’s always good to advance smoothly in the first round,” Burgic said. “Tomorrow’s match will be a lot more challenging, so now the priority is resting and preparing…and studying for my classes.”
Burgic will continue her run in the qualifying draw on Monday as she faces six-time tour winner Nicole Vaidisova of the Czech Republic. Currently ranked No. 704, Vaidisova has been ranked as high as No. 7 in the world and has also made the semifinals at both the French and Australian Opens.
The $50,000 ITF Pro Circuit event is Burgic’s third pro event of the fall, after Sunday’s win, she is 7-2.
