Cetnik leads the women with a final singles ranking of No. 45. Cetnik recorded a dual singles record of 19-7 this spring and received a bid to the NCAA Individual Championships, where the senior knocked off No. 15 Riza Zalameda of UCLA in the opening round. Cetnik was also named to the All-MWC singles team after posting a perfect 10-0 record in conference play.
Sydorska closed out the season with a singles ranking of No. 91. The Lviv, Ukraine, native recorded a dual mark of 18-9 this season playing primarily at the top two positions for the Frogs. Sydorska earned a spot on the All-MWC team after posting a 6-3 record in conference play. The TCU sophomore ended the 2006 season with a final singles ranking of No. 110.
Munch-Soegaard finished the 2007 season with a national ranking of No. 109. Munch-Soegaard, who was named the Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year, led the team with a 21-6 record at the top three singles positions. Munch-Soegaard was also named to the all-conference singles team after going 8-2 in MWC play.
Cetnik and Sydorska set a new TCU record as the duo finished the season with a doubles ranking of No. 3. The highest previous ranking at TCU was set in 1988, as Tory Plunkett and Rene Simpson finished No. 9.
The Frog tandem earned Doubles All-America honors this season after grabbing a No. 4 national seed at the NCAA Individual Championships, where the duo advanced to the semifinals. Cetnik and Sydorska went 13-5 this spring and 25-7 overall this season. Cetnik set a TCU single season record with 35 doubles victories, while Sydorska tied for second all-time with 34 wins.
