Yurovsky, a freshman at Michigan, was named the Big Ten Conference Women's Tennis Athlete of the Week after defeating two nationally ranked players in the first two singles matches of her collegiate career.

Yurovsky downed No. 25 Kata Szekeley of Tennessee, 7-6, 6-4, and No. 28 Zoe De Bruycker of North Carolina, 6-1, 3-6, 1-0. Unranked Michigan defeated No. 25 Tennesse, 4-3.
