2007-08 Clemson Women’s Tennis Schedule Announced

Aug. 2, 2007

CLEMSON, SC – The 2007-08 Clemson women’s tennis schedule has been announced by Head Coach Nancy Harris. The Tigers’ slate includes five fall and preseason tournaments while featuring 14 matches against 2006 NCAA Tournament teams. Clemson also earned its third invitation in the last four years to the prestigious USTA/ITA National Team Indoor Championships in February.

The Tigers will kick off their fall schedule at the Furman Fall Classic in Greenville, SC from Sept. 28-30. Selected players will then participate in the Riviera/ITA All-American Championships in Pacific Palisades, CA beginning Oct. 4. Competition at the annual Wilson/ITA Southeast Regional will again be held on the campus of the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, NC with first-round action starting on Oct. 17.

After a weekend off, Clemson will then conclude its fall season with a tournament held at the Doral Desert Princess Resort in Palm Springs, CA over Nov. 2-4. The 2006 ITA National Individual Indoor Championships in Columbus, OH will also be held that weekend for any student-athletes earning invitations.

The Tigers will play host to Alabama-Montgomery in a final exhibition tune-up from Jan. 18-20 before starting dual-match play.

To open the spring season, Clemson will face Furman in Greenville, SC on Jan. 23 and will then return to the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center for non-conferences dates against Purdue and Virginia Commonwealth. The Tigers will then travel to Madison, WI for the National Team Indoor Championships from Feb. 7-10.

They will then play host to Kentucky on Feb. 16 in the first of three contests against SEC foes. Clemson will face the NCAA quarterfinalist Georgia Bulldogs on Feb. 20 in Athens, GA while matching up with in-state rival South Carolina on Feb. 23. The Tigers also have non-conference matches scheduled in March against South Florida and the College of Charleston in Tampa and Charleston, SC, respectively.

Clemson will face reigning national champion Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA in a tough ACC opener on Feb. 27. Defending their 2006 regular season conference championship will then remain difficult for the Tigers, as they also play 2006 NCAA Tournament teams Miami, Florida, North Carolina and Duke away from home.

They wrap up the 2008 regular season with six straight home league matches from Mar. 29 – Apr. 13, playing host to Wake Forest, NC State, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Maryland and Boston College.

The 2008 ACC Championships will be held in Altamonte Springs, FL at the Sanlando Park on Apr. 17-20. NCAA Tournament first and second rounds will be played on May 9-10 at various campus sites with championship action beginning May 15 at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center in Tulsa, OK.
