No. 20 Illinois quickly defeat struggling Bulls
The USF women’s tennis team ran into another obstacle on their way to turning the corner yesterday. The Bulls lost to No. 20 Illinois 6-1 at the varsity tennis courts, making it the seventh loss in eight games for USF (3-10).
The Illini defeated the Bulls at the No. 2 and No. 3 doubles 8-3 and 8-4 respectively. Illinois also won the No. 1 doubles after USF retired the match at 4-1. Sophomore Fabiana Taverna, in her first match back from a wrist injury, was a member of that retired match and did not play a singles match. Coach Gigi Fernandez could not be reached for comment.
As for singles, the Bulls did not fare any better, getting beat in two sets at all positions except for No. 4. Sophomore Luis Abando was the only Bull to win her match, but needed a third set tiebreak to get the job done; she won 6-3, 2-6, (10-3).
The Bulls will try to get back on course on Saturday when they play in-state rival No. 67 Florida Atlantic University. The match will be in Boca Raton at 11 a.m.
