American Megan Moulton-Levy
Former William and Mary standout Megan Moulton-Levy, 26, and Lindsay Lee-Waters of Dunwoody, Ga., qualified for the Wimbledon women’s doubles draw in dramatic fashion.
They won two qualifying matches on grass courts in Roehampton, England, capped by a 6-7 (6-8), 6-4, 8-6 triumph Saturday against Russians Nina Bratchikova and Valeria Savinykh.
The match was supposed to be played Friday but was rained out.
Moulton-Levy, who has concentrated on doubles recently, is ranked 111th on the WTA Tour computer in doubles and has been as high as 103. In part because she has played so few singles tournaments lately, she’s ranked just 1,500 in singles.
One of her best W&M moments came in doubles, when she and Kat Zoricic were the 2007 NCAA tournament runners-up.
