Posted: Updated:

Shockers star tennis player Fatima Bizhukova was named the AAC's Player of the Week. The sophomore from Russia beat the No. 3 player in the country over the weekend, she was also up on the No. 5 player in the nation before the match went unfinished.

She's on a tear and should have a national ranking of her own soon.

"I am so happy about my win, after this much I feel more confident and I'm just so excited to see how I can improve this season," Bizhukova said.

"We've been able to test her against the best competition in college tennis in the fall at some events and now of course at the number 1 position in the spring against a difficult schedule. But like I said, everyone has a good number 1 but we're playing a stronger and stronger schedule every year," head Colin Foster added.
