OXFORD, Miss. – With the new school year beginning less than a month from now, Ole Miss women’s tennis head coach Mark Beyers announced the addition of Natalie Suk (Bradenton, Florida), who signed a national letter of intent to join the program beginning this fall.
“We are excited to welcome Natalie to Ole Miss,” Beyers said. “She comes from a great tennis family, with a lot of tradition. Natalie will make an immediate impact and we look for her to have a great career here. She is a very talented and athletic player who is only going to get better with the structure of collegiate tennis.”
Suk owns a present WTA Ranking of 1110 in singles and 748 in doubles. She also achieved a career-high ranking of No. 79 in the Czech Republic Women’s Ranking.
Suk’s highlights include reaching the singles semifinals at the ITF Pro Circuit tournament in Orlando and three ITF Pro Circuit doubles semifinals appearances. She also advanced to the singles semifinals at the Czech National Women’s Grade A. Suk has posted wins against several players ranked in the WTA top 500.
As Beyers noted, Suk comes from a tennis family. Her dad, her aunt and her grandmother all played tennis professionally. As a doubles specialist, Natalie’s dad, Cyril Suk, won the 1998 U.S. Open Men’s Doubles Championship and four Grand Slam mixed doubles titles during his career, including three with her aunt, Helena. Natalie’s grandmother, Vera Suková, was a singles finalist at Wimbledon in 1962.
Natalie Suk joins Dutch native Arianne Hartono as newcomers to the 2014-15 squad, which returns seven letterwinners, including five of the top six in singles.
