Germantown resident Ines Vias is competing in the United States Tennis Association’s National Championships in San Diego.

On Sunday Vias, who just turned 17, competed in the first round of the tournament against the top seeded Louisa Chirico, who won the match in two sets, 6-2 and 6-3. Chirico is currently ranked number 223 in the world by the Women’s Tennis Association.

Yesterday, Vias took on Kenadi Hance of Torrance, Calif., in a first-round consolation singles match. Vias was defeated 6-2, 4-6, 10-6 in yesterday’s action.

"I think it was a good experience,” said Vias after the yesterday’s match. “It helped me improve my game and what I have to work on. Everyone is a great player here. It's tough to get into this tournament. Even the people that have to qualify are great players.”
