W. Tennis Meets FGCU and Cornell in Doubleheader

CORAL GABLES, Fla. The University of Miami women’s tennis team will play its first doubleheader of the season Saturday in Fort Myers, Fla.

No. 17 Miami (1-0) will first meet FGCU at 9 a.m. and then square off with Cornell at 3 p.m., both at the FGCU Tennis Complex.

The Hurricanes are 4-0 all-time against FGCU, but have never previously played the Eagles away from Coral Gables. Most recently, Miami logged a 4-0 victory on Feb. 10, 2018 at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center. The Hurricanes have not previously faced the Big Red.

Miami has two nationally-ranked singles players in junior Estela Perez-Somarriba and senior Daniella Roldan, checking in at seventh and No. 82, respectively. In doubles, junior Yuna Ito and sophomore Ulyana Shirokova form the No. 51-ranked duos in the country.

FGCU is 1-1 thus far on the season, while Cornell begins dual match play Saturday at 10 a.m. against Georgia State. Neither team has any ranked individuals or pairs.

Following its doubleheader, Miami travels to Evanston, Ill., for a pair of ITA Kick-Off Weekend matches, first meeting No. 22 Tulsa Jan. 26 at 3 p.m. ET.
