Women’s tennis ends 2008 season at home
The South Florida women’s tennis team hosts Florida International today in a battle that favors neither team.
The Bulls – ranked No. 44 in the latest ITA ranking – will look to extend their winning streak to nine against the No. 45 Golden Panthers. USF is coming off a strong performance, after sweeping South Carolina Upstate 7-0 on Sunday.
The Bulls will look to Janette Bejlkova – the No. 57 ranked singles player in the nation – for a strong performance in No. 1 singles and doubles play. The No. 1 doubles match will likely be against the No. 34 ranked doubles team of Egle Petrauskaite and Liset Brito.
“We’re facing a very good team (today),” USF coach Agustin Moreno said.
FIU (9-6) will be visiting with a three-game winning streak and will look to avenge the loss they received at the hands of the Bulls in the first round of last season’s NCAA tournament.
“We must play hard (against FIU). They are a good team,” Bejlkova said.
Iciri Rai will try for another dominating performance after blanking her opponent (6-0, 6-0). Jessica Zok will also look for another strong win against Brito – the nation’s No. 103 ranked singles player in the No. 2 matchup.
The Bulls will look to end the season on a high note because the Big East Championship tournament – held this year in Tampa – begins April 17.

Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
