Florencia Roncatti had the best showing in singles for the ‘Fish, winning seven games overall. Despite the effort Roncatti fell to Mara Cerrini 6-4, 6-3. Leoni Polzin was bumped up to the number one spot as PBA played without typical number one Valerie Nagovitcina. Polzin was unable to overcome Zuza Maciejewska who won 6-2, 6-1.
The Sailfish are back in action on Friday in Orlando as they take on Arkansas Tech at 5 p.m. The match was moved from Thursday to Friday due to forecasted rain for Thursday.
