Jan. 26, 2008
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana University women's tennis team will welcome No. 17 Duke and the Butler Bulldogs to the IU campus on Sunday, taking on Duke at 11 a.m. before squaring off with the Bulldogs in a 4 p.m. showdown. The Hoosiers are ranked 25th in the country and sit at 2-0 after wins over Western Michigan and Miami (OH) last week.
Duke is well-represented individually in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's preseason poll with four Blue Devils slotted in the nation's top-100. Ellah Nze tops the group at the No. 5 ranking. Reka Zsilinszka (#17), Elizabeth Plotkin (#57) and Amanda Granson (#99) join Nze in the poll.
Four different Hoosiers posted 4-0 overall records during the previous two dual matches, winning both singles and both doubles contests. Junior Sigrid Fischer and sophomore Lindsey Stuckey paired up to win two matches in doubles action while each also earned the 'W' in both of their singles matches. Senior Brianna Williams and freshman Katya Zapadaolova have arisen victorious in all four of their matches as well thus far in the dual match season.
Hoosier fans can follow along with all the action this weekend as live match updates will be available via the women's tennis schedule page on iuhoosiers.com.
