BOULDER - The University of Colorado tennis team returns to its home court this Sunday, Feb. 11 at the Millennium Hotel Harvest House taking on the No. 48 Oregon Ducks at 11 a.m.

The Buffaloes (3-1) are coming off a 4-3 loss at No. 44 Alabama last weekend, while the Ducks (4-2) have lost two straight after starting the season winning their first four matches.

 

Colorado holds an 8-2 advantage in the head-to-head series dating back to 1992. Oregon has won the last two matches against CU with both victories coming in Eugene, 7-0 in 2004 and 4-3 in 2006. Last season, Veera Nurmi and Franziska Jendrian picked up straight set victories in singles.

 

Sophomore Monica Milewski is the lone CU singles player ranked among the Fila/Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) top-100 at No. 36 and brings a 3-1 spring record into Sunday's match.

 

Oregon has a doubles pair among the ITA's top-75 as Dominika Dieskova/Ana Cecilia Olivos enter the season ranked as the No. 28 ranked team. Dieskova is Oregon's all-time career matches played list with 125 and needs 16 wins to move into first place on the all-time list.
