New Orleans - Tulane's 59th-ranked women's tennis team returns to action this Saturday at 9 a.m. against Kentucky, the Wave's second straight Southeastern Conference opponent, at the City Park Pepsi Center. There is no charge for admission.
Tulane (2-2) will look to put its tough loss at home against No. 46 LSU this past Wednesday behind and bounce back into the win column on Saturday. The Wave is 1-1 at home this season after topping Conference USA rival SMU, 4-3, in its home opener last week, and is 2-0 against unranked opponents this year.
"This is our first meeting with Kentucky so we have no preconceived notions about what to expect other than we know the SEC teams are always solid programs and battle hard," Tulane head coach Terri Sisk said. "As a team, we are strictly focusing on staying in the present and executing correctly on the task in front of us. The team is ready to play and looking for another solid performance."
Kentucky is 3-1 overall this spring and is coming off a 4-3 loss at home to No. 48 Penn State last Sunday.
The Green Wave women's tennis team will play all nine of its home matches this spring at the City Park Pepsi Center. The City Park/Pepsi Tennis Center features 16 hard and 10 clay courts, a clubhouse with a pro shop, restrooms, showers and a meeting room. The facility is located off Marconi Blvd. between I-610 and Harrison Avenue. For more information on City Park Pepsi Center, please visit http://www.neworleanscitypark.com/tennis.html.
