Iowa women’s tennis player Milica Veselinovic has been named this week’s Big Ten Athlete of the Week. This is Veselinovic’s first career honor.

Veselinovic went 2-0 in singles last weekend against No. 17 Baylor and No. 21 TCU. Against Baylor, Veselinovic defeated Iva Mihaylova, 6-0, 6-3, for Iowa’s lone point in the meet. Veselinovic and Morgan Tuttle were barely edged in doubles, 9-8 (4), against Zuzana Krchnakova and Mihaylova. Two days later, Veselinovic notched a win against TCU’s Gloriann Lopez, 6-4, 6-3, at the No. 4 position.

The Hawkeyes compete tonight at 7 p.m. against the Ohio State Buckeyes. Competition will take place at North Dodge Athletic Club in Iowa City.
