She overcame No. 109 Flickinger in a three-set match, 3-6, 6-2, 6-0, to give Kentucky the lead. This was the second time Sutjiadi competed against Flickinger this season, the first when Kentucky hosted Auburn March 28. In that meeting, Sutjiadi dealt the Tiger her third loss of the dual match season with a 6-1, 7-5 win.
