CLEMSON, SC – The Tiger women’s tennis team will travel to Athens, GA on Wednesday, Feb. 20 for a date with the fourth-ranked Georgia Bulldogs. Clemson and Georgia will take to the court at 2:30 pm at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in the first of a stretch of nine straight road matches for the Tigers.

The Bulldogs enter Wednesday’s contest with a 5-1 record with their only loss suffered against Georgia Tech in the USTA/ITA National Team Indoor Championships over the Feb. 7-10 weekend. The Yellow Jackets went on to claim the tournament title for the second straight year.

Tiger sophomore Ani Mijacika won her 15th match of the 2007-08 season last Saturday with a straight-set victory at the number one position. She now 15-4 overall in singles play with a 12-4 individual doubles record.
