Antonaki Begins NCAA Singles Championship

ORLANDO, Fla. – No. 47 Emmanouela Antonaki is representing Mississippi State at the NCAA Women’s Tennis Singles Championship this week at the USTA National Campus in Orlando, Fla.

Antonaki received an at large bid and will take on 28th-ranked Carson Tanguilig of North Carolina on Monday at 11 a.m. CT.

The Athens, Greece native is making her fourth consecutive appearance in the NCAA Singles Championship. She is the only women’s tennis player to make the NCAA Singles Championship four times. In 2021, she made it to the Round of 16 where she became an All-American.

Antonaki, who recently received her master’s degree in sports administration, was a SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, a second team All-SEC selection and earned a CSC Academic All-District honor this spring. She leads the team with 14 singles victories this season, five of which came over ranked opponents.

This season, Antonaki became Mississippi State’s all-time leader in career singles wins with 98 and career combined wins (singles and doubles) with 179.

Tanguilig is competing in the NCAA Singles Championship for the second consecutive year. The sophomore from Alpharetta, Ga. is 28-9 overall and 19-5 during dual-match play.

North Carolina earned their first NCAA Championship title on Saturday after taking down NC State 4-1. Tanguilig claimed the first singles win against Amelia Rajecki 6-3, 6-1 to even the score 1-1.

Tanguilig is also one-half of the No. 11 doubles tandem in the country alongside Fiona Crawley and will be competing in the NCAA Doubles Championship on Tuesday.
