The Colorado State women’s tennis team enters play on Friday with an overall record of 3-7, and are coming off a conference-opening loss to Nevada (7-0). The Rams will face Mountain West foe New Mexico on April 4, looking for their first conference victory. CSU will then return to Colorado for a conference match at Air Force on April 6 at 12 p.m.
ABOUT NEW MEXICO
New Mexico enters the week with an overall record 12-7. This will be the third straight conference match for the Lobos as they are coming off matches against Boise State and Utah State. The Lobos were narrowly edged by Boise State by a final score of 4-3. The Lobos bounced back to beat Utah State by a final score of 6-1.
ABOUT AIR FORCE
Air Force enters the week with an overall record of 14-6. The Falcons will play matches against Wyoming, North Dakota and Colorado College this week before facing off against the Rams on April 6th. Natasha Rizvi is a perfect 5-0 at the No. 3 position for the Falcons this spring and she currently owns a five-match win streak.
“Air Force is always tough, they play a different style of play than most people so they’re always hard to play against,” Head Coach Jon Messick said. “I think that if we can stay with them, we’ve got a shot.”
Jon Messick QUOTABLES
“We’re really looking forward to playing more conference matches,” Messick said. “Both of these teams are going to be tough, we’re still trying to get healthy and we might be a little more healthy on this trip than we were on the last one. I think it’ll be a better indication of how far we’ve progressed this spring.”
The format is three, eight-game pro-set doubles matches followed by six best-of-three set-singles matches. The team that wins two or more of the three doubles matches receives one point. Each singles match is worth one point. Four or more points are required to win the team match.
