“This is a very exciting and well deserved opportunity for Andie to play against the best players in the country,” head women’s tennis coach Lauren Longbotham Meisner said. “We hope that she continues to play as well as she did at regionals and gain even more confidence and experience on the national level. We are so proud of her resilience this fall and know there are big things in store for her this year.”
After a tough opening round loss in the Riviera/ITA All-American, Dikosavljevic came into form during the USTA/ITA Regional Championship to win the tournament and a capture a bid to nationals. During regionals she picked up six victories, including wins over No. 21 Erin Routliffe of Alabama and No. 83 Georgiana Patrasc of Mississippi State.
