MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The University of Memphis women's tennis team (6-9, 1-0 C-USA) split a pair of 4-3 matches, in non-conference action, Saturday.

To open the morning, the Lady Tigers came back from dropping the doubles point to win singles matches at No. 1, 2, 5 and 6 to complete a come-from-behind victory over Southern Illinois-Carbondale. Memphis got straight set wins from Marlene Dirnstorfer, Viktoria Gruber, Yesica Ares and Alex Tjioe in their sixth win of the season.

In hopes of beating the oncoming rains, the Lady Tigers and UALR played singles first, but the two teams split the six singles matches and were forced indoors at The Racquet Club of Memphis to play the doubles point. UALR swept all three doubles matches to pick up the deciding point, 4-3.
