Men's Tennis Hosts USF
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami men’s tennis team returns to its home court for the first time since Feb. 27, when it plays host to No. 29 South Florida Saturday at 1 p.m.
The Hurricanes enter the in-state affair looking to turn the tides of their season and get back to their winning ways.
Facing a trio of top-15 teams on the road in recent weeks, Miami ranks 50th in the nation at 3-7 (2-4 ACC).
Along with South Florida, the Hurricanes will play four straight matches at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center, taking on Louisville (March 26, 3 p.m.), Notre Dame (March 28, 11 a.m.) and Florida Atlantic (April 3, 1 p.m.).
Saturday’s meeting marks the first between the two Sunshine State programs since 2014, with the Hurricanes leading the all-time series 7-2.
The Bulls enter the contest with a 10-3 mark on the year, as its eight match winning streak came to a halt Monday at home against sixth-ranked TCU, 5-2.
USF entered the spring without any singles players ranked in the initial ITA preseason poll, while a pair of doubles tandems ranked among the top 50.
Rithvik Bollipalli and Jacob Wojcik team up to form the nation’s 21st-ranked tandem, while Chase Ferguson and Pierre Luquet sit at No. 38.
