After a rained out weekend, the Mean Green Tennis team is back in action. This weekend the team will travel to Kentucky to take on Eastern Kentucky University and University of Louisville.

UNT tennis was scheduled to face Georgia State University tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. but after a cancelation yesterday morning due to a schedule conflict, UNT will instead play Eastern Kentucky in Richmond, Ky., at 3 p.m. tomorrow before facing Louisville on Sunday at 11 a.m.

“Looking at their results, they have had some good wins so far,” head coach Sujay Lama said of EKU. “So we just have to be at our best. I think we are a team that makes adjustments during the matches, so we don’t want to concentrate too much on their scouting report.”

Last season in Denton, UNT swept the Cardinals 4-0, avenging the loss from the season before when The Cardinals shut out the Mean Green 7-0 in Louisville. Senior Barbora Vykydalova was a part of both matches, and she said last year the team had to fight through injury to win.

“Every single match and every single year you improve,” Vykydalova said. “So we are going to just focus. I am just focusing on improvement mentally and physically.”

After a weekend of tennis, UNT will take on the University of Texas at Arlington (2-8) in Arlington on Tuesday at 2 p.m.  The Mean Green and the Mavericks have split the last two meetings, with UNT winning last year at home.

“We have been competing for two months in the season already so that week [the game that was rained out] didn’t mean anything to us,” senior Valentina Starkova said. “The way we take care of business is what matters the most, so we are ready for anything, weather and all.”
