Martins Ends Strong Fall at National Indoors

Nov. 5, 2016

FLUSHING, N.Y. – Carolina women’s tennis student-athlete Ingrid Gamarra Martins concluded her time at the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships on Saturday. The sophomore fell to North Carolina’s Sara Daavettila in the consolation quarterfinals.

“It was a tough end to the tournament but Ingrid has a lot to be proud of this fall,” said assistant coach Jeff Nevolo. “Qualifying for the ITA All-American, playing at National Indoors, and making it to the finals of a pro tournament are all evidence of the hard work she has put in. We will get back to Columbia, rest up and start working for the spring.”

Saturday’s match ended with a 6-0, 6-3 score in favor of Daavettila, ending Martins’ decorated fall campaign. The Rio de Janeiro, Brazil native did a few things this fall that no other Gamecock had accomplished for some time. Her selection to this weekend’s National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships made her the first to do so since Nathalie Rodriguez in 1990. Back in early October, Martins advanced to the main draw singles round of 16 at the ITA All-American Championships, making her the first Gamecock to do that since 1999, and the first since 2000 to even reach the main draw.

While Martin’s fall has come to a close, several of her teammates are still in action at the Jack Kramer Collegiate Invitational in Los Angeles, Calif. this weekend. The tournament is set to run through Sunday, Nov. 6.
