Men's Tennis Heads to Austin for ITA Kickoff
AUSTIN, Texas - After two magnificent performances at home to kick off the spring season, Arizona departs to its toughest challenge yet in the ITA Kickoff Weekend Tournament. This tournament will consist of three other teams including No. 9 Florida, No. 6 Texas, and Liberty.
The Wildcats' first opponent will be the University of Florida. The Gators come prepared with five members ranked within the Top 125, including two ranked within the top 15. The winner of this match-up will go against the winner between Liberty and No. 6 Texas to decide the winner of the tournament. The losers will also play in a consolation game for third place.
No. 50 Jonas Ziverts and senior Alejandro Reguant hope to captain their team to victory as they did a week ago with strong performances from every member, including some dominant performances by the newcomers like No. 105 Gustaf Strom, with solid veteran performances by senior Carlos Hassey and No. 54 Filip Malbasic.
Arizona will play Florida at 11 am MST on the North Courts at the University of Texas. Weather could force the games indoor, which would result in no live stream and a change in schedule. The next match will take place Saturday against the winner or loser.
