Tallahassee – The Florida State women’s tennis squad (8-3) will face the No. 27 Tulane Green Wave in its second match of four matches over a six day span. The Tribe picked up a win in their last outing, hosting FIU, yesterday.
The Seminoles won the 6-1 after a nine-day layoff. FSU jumped out of the gate quickly putting points on the board in doubles area. After winning the doubles point, FSU picked up singles wins in five matches to secure the team victory. Dumitrescu clinched the team victory, besting Zabala 6-1, 6-2 at the number one position while Moldovan wrapped up her eleventh victory of the season to remain undefeated, winning at No. 2 against Ly 6-1, 6-0. In Tulane’s last match, the Green Wave took three singles matches and lost the doubles point to fourteenth-ranked Fresno State.
Florida State leads 8-2 in the all-time series record dating back to 1981. In 2003, the Seminoles first loss of the season came at then-No. 41 Tulane. The match saw the Green Wave pick up the doubles point and FSU win the first three singles matches. Tulane picked up wins at the four, five and six positions to escape a loss at home.
This week the Seminoles host four teams over six days with matches against FIU (Mar. 5), No. 27 Tulane (Mar. 6), Michigan State (Mar. 8) and Penn State (Mar. 10). All contests start at noon.
