July 1, 2013
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - University of Memphis women's tennis coach Lee Taylor Walker announced the team's fall 2014 schedule Monday, which will include two tournaments at The Racquet Club of Memphis.
The Lady Tigers will begin their season at the Amelia Island 10k for the second-straight season, Sept. 21-24, in Amelia Island, Fla. A select few will then compete in the Riviera/ITA Women's All-American Championships at the Riviera Tennis Club, Sept. 28-Oct. 6, in Pacific Palisades, Calif. During that time, the rest of the team will not have far to go from Amelia Island with the Jacksonville 10k slated for Sept. 27-30.
Memphis will open up the month of October with the Troy 25k in Troy, Ala., Oct. 5-8, before the Rock Hill 25k in Rock Hill, S.C., Oct. 12-15. Following the team's trip to South Carolina, the Lady Tigers will return home to host the USTA/ITA Ohio Valley Regional for the second time in three years, Oct. 18-22. Memphis will then close out the month with a trip to Texas to participate in the New Braunfels 50k, Oct. 26-29.
Fans will get to see the Lady Tigers back in the Bluff City, Nov. 1-3, for the Memphis Collegiate Invite, which will include Marquette, Miami (OH), Tulsa and American Athletic Conference foe Louisville.
The USTA/ITA National Indoor Championships will be held Nov. 7-10 in Flushing Meadows, N.Y. Players can gain automatic entry into the national championships by winning the regional championship or by becoming consolation champions, doubles finalists or singles semifinalists at the All-American Championships in October.
Memphis players that do not qualify for the National Indoor Championships will compete at the Dick Vitale Lakewood Ranch Intercollegiate Clay Court Classic, Nov. 8-10, in Sarasota, Fla. The Lady Tigers will look to sweep the singles and doubles titles at the event for the second-straight season. In 2012, sophomore Liza Tymchenko grabbed the singles championship while former Lady Tigers Courtney Collins and Kelly Gray took home the doubles crown.
