In the singles qualifier at the 2012 Riviera/ITA All-American Championships Tuesday, senior Kata Szekely fell in a tough three set battle to No. 81 ranked Elizabeth Epstein of Yale, 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-4.
The No. 28 ranked singles player, Szekely took part in the contest after a grueling 9-8 doubles victory earlier in the day with partner Brynn Boren.
Szekely fell in the first set of the day 3-6, battled back for a 7-6 second set win and dropped a tough third set 4-6.
Szekely will be back in action, however, in the doubles qualifying second round alongside Boren Wednesday morning.
