The WPIAL will unveil the brackets for the district’s first championship tournament on Tuesday.

The 2019 girls singles tennis championships will take place over two days later this week.

The first round, quarterfinals and semifinals matches are set for Thursday with the championship and consolation matches taking place Friday.

Two of the favorites will be Baldwin senior Bethany Yauch in Class AAA and Knoch junior Laura Greb in AA.

Yauch was the top seed a year ago and reached the finals, only to lose a close title match to North Allegheny senior Ashley Huang. Greb has won back-to-back WPIAL AA titles, taking both in straight sets.
