The South Florida women’s tennis, which snapped a three-match losing streak with a 6-1 win against the UCF Knights last week, came back home and won its second straight match – 7-0 over the Villanova Wildcats at the USF Varsity Tennis Courts on Wednesday.
The Bulls (9-5, 2-2) played at home for the first time this season after spending the first two months on the road.
“I was very impressed with the energy that we all had on the courts today,” said Natalia Guevara, who won her match 6-0, 6-0. “It was so much nicer to play at home and outdoors for a change.”?
USF showed why it’s a Big East contender after taking every match without dropping a single set in all nine matches, three doubles and six singles. No. 1 Janette Bejklova, ranked 49th in the nation, No. 3 Liz Cruz and No. 6 Guevara all won their matches without giving up a game in a stellar team performance.
“This is one of the most complete teams I have had the please of coaching,” said coach Agustin Moreno. “Our goal is to push strong towards the end of the season and repeat as conference champions. These girls are ready to play.”
