OXFORD, Ohio -- The Miami tennis team continues its season-opening road swing this weekend with trip to Louisville and Cincinnati for a pair of matches. The RedHawks will face the Cardinals Saturday at 4, then challenge the Bearcats Sunday at 3.
This marks the second straight weekend that Miami will compete at the Western Tennis and Fitness Club. Last Saturday, the RedHawks were swept by Indiana in neutral-site action. Junior Christiana Raymond won the only set, taking a 6-4 advantage, but wound up falling in a super-tiebreaker.
Louisville is off to a 2-0 start this season, sweeping Xavier and Morehead State last weekend. The RedHawks lead the all-time series 13-8 following a 4-3 win in Hamilton last year, but the Cardinals posted six straight victories before that. They feature two ranked players, No. 62 Rebecca Shine and No. 84 Julian Fellerhoff.
Cincinnati is 0-2 following losses to Big Ten members Indiana and Ohio State to start the year. The RedHawks have won five straight and 24 of 29 all-time over the Bearcats.
