LAS VEGAS - Sophomore Natalia Munoz won the top flight singles title on Sunday at the Las Vegas Fall Invitational, defeating Washington State's Bara Michalkova in the championship match. Munoz ended a perfect 3-0 weekend with a 6-4, 6-4 victory, claiming a singles title one day after earning her first victory over a nationally ranked opponent.
