Vyskocilova ranked as high as No. 58 this season; Has won 94 combined singles, doubles matches
New Orleans – Tulane's Terri Sisk continues to reload her team for the upcoming 2012-13 campaign and added a nationally-ranked player to the line-up today as the fourth-year head coach announced the signing of All-Atlantic Coast Conference standout transfer Klara Vyskocilova (vees-KOH-chih-loh-vah) from Clemson.
A 5'8" right-hander from Klatovy, Czech Republic, Vyskocilova ranked as high as No. 58 nationally in singles this season and brings a resume to Tulane that includes 94 combined singles and doubles victories while playing near the top of the line-up for the Tigers in singles and No.3 in doubles. She helped Clemson to 37 victories, two NCAA Tournament appearances, including a round of 16 showing in 2011 and a second round effort this past spring, and she has posted 20+ victories in both singles and doubles in each of her first two seasons as a collegian.
"The addition of Klara is very big for our program," Sisk said. "She joins us as a junior after quite an impressive tenure at Clemson. She is a very solid ball striker, great competitor and overall just an amazing athlete. She will definitely come in and make a huge impact in our line-up after playing on one of the biggest stages in collegiate tennis. I expect great things for Klara on the court in her next two years for Tulane."
During her sophomore campaign, she entered the spring ranked 58th nationally and remained ranked the entire season. She logged a 24-10 singles mark while playing primarily at the No. 2 and 3 spots in the line-up and completed the year with a 17-7 dual mark. In doubles action, Vyskocilova was 29-8 overall, including 20-3 in dual play with her partner at the No. 3 position. She was one of two Tigers to receive All-ACC recognition.
As a rookie in 2010-11, Vyskocilova posted a 21-12 singles record and ranked as high as No. 100 nationally after posting five ranked wins. She registered a 20-14 overall mark in doubles, including a 5-2 mark with Caroline Magnusson, who also transferred to Tulane from Clemson. The Tigers advanced to the round of 16 before falling to eventual national champion Florida.
