“Ash played a great match versus the No. 1 player from Boston College,” Aggie head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “She was composed and focused throughout. I am so proud of her for coming back after beating a ranked player yesterday and follow that up with her third win in two days.”
Shrivastava did not drop a single set in her three matches as she also swept Pepperdine’s Michaela Capannolo and Kentucky’s Kelsey Dieters, the 105th-ranked player in the country, on Saturday.
The win puts Shrivastava into the qualifying round of the tournament, which begins Tuesday morning. She is one of only eight players in the 64-player pre-qualifying round to advance to the next round.
The qualifying round, like the pre-qualifying round, will consist of 64 players. Of those 64, the eight who can win three matches in a row will advance to the main draw of one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments of the season and compete against the top players in the nation.
