Women's tennis signs Canadian high school star



As the signing week comes to a close, Arizona women’s tennis has signed one Canadian recruit, Devin Chypyha, to its 2014-2015 roster.

Chypyha signed a National Letter of Intent and will begin her season in fall of 2014.

Tennisrecruiting.net, a website for junior tennis, says she is slated to graduate next year from Bill Crothers Secondary School. Chypyha has a career record of 34-51 in singles and 35-47 in doubles, according to the website of the International Tennis Federation.

Chypyha has played in several different outlets, including ITF tournaments, the Costa Rica Rice Ball and the UTSA International Spring Championships. She will join a team that has one junior, two sophomores and two freshmen. Arizona will lose four seniors this year.

In a press release, head coach Vicky Maes expressed her excitement over signing Chypyha. Maes said she is “mature” and thinks she will be able to “step up right away.”

Chypyha will look to develop her skills in the coming season at the UA and contribute to a young team.

“I know that at the University of Arizona, I can reach my potential and really improve as an athlete and a student,” Chypyha said in a press release.
