No. 11 Woolcock dropped the first set to No. 47 Adamovic 6-3 after falling behind early 4-1. The Melbourne, Australia, native quickly turned things around in the second set, winning 6-4 and forcing a third set.

After cruising to an easy win in the first round, Austin and Keegan seemed poised to repeat it after taking the first set 6-3.
Pepperdine’s No. 19 Matea Cutura and Christine Maddox wouldn't make things easier for Florida. Cutura and Maddox took a 4-2 lead to start the second set.
Austin and Keegan worked their way into a tiebreaker with the match on the line.
And they got it done.
They took the second set 7-6 to move on to the quarterfinals.
