Osterloh Scores Qualifying Victory Over Black

Yesterday Lilia Osterloh was shopping in nearby Orange County when she go a call on her purple cat woman cell phone. Today she’s one match away from qualifying for the main draw of the 2004 Acura Classic.

Osterloh, who entered the Acura Classic qualifying draw at the last minute as an alternate, ousted ninth-seeded Cara Black of Zimbabwe, 7-6 (3), 6-4 on Stadium Court at the La Costa Resort and Spa.

After winning a tight first set in a tiebreak, Osterloh was determined not to let her opportunity slip away and she jumped to a 5-2 lead in the second set.

Black, who is ranked 104 in the world, fought back to win the next two games, but Osterloh served out the match when a slice backhand from Black fell into the net on match point.

“Considering I was shopping in Newport Beach yesterday and coming down to La Costa and beating Cara Black in the first round, I’m ecstatic,” said Osterloh, who is ranked 225 in the world.

“It just shows that I belong back where I was in 2000, 2001, in the top 50,” she added. “I really wanted it. I’m one match closer (to the main draw).”

Osterloh entered the qualifying draw as an alternate when Tina Pisnik withdrew from the main draw with a muscle strain and Barbara Strycova moved from the qualifying draw to the main draw.
Osterloh advances to the final round of qualifying where she will face Eugenia Linetskaya of Russia.
Black and Rennae Stubbs are seeded second in the Acura Classic doubles main draw. Earlier this month, Black and Stubbs teamed to win the women’s doubles title at Wimbledon.
Black won the 2004 Wimbledon mixed doubles crown with her brother Wayne.
