No one is on her game more than Kara Zimmerman as she won in straight sets and moved her personal winning streak to ten matches combined in singles and doubles. Amy Weller won in straight sets allowing her opponent only one game while Havilah Mohler completed her shut-out day with a straight set 6-0, 6-0 victory.
