CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson Tigers women’s tennis team debuts in their home opener under new head coach Boomer Saia at Duckworth Family Tennis Facility against the ETSU Bucs. 

The match is set for Friday, January 19, at 5:00 p.m. and can be viewed through the track tennis website. Links can be found on our website as well as on social media.

“We had an excellent first tournament out in Palm Springs, and we got a lot of great competition on the weekend,” Saia said. “We are so excited to be back in Clemson and hosting our first home matches of the year. We have five seniors who are determined to have the best season of their careers and are hungry for success. Our home opener against ETSU will be very tough – ETSU’s competitive program will make us work for each point.” 

It should be a promising season for the Tigers as they welcome back key senior players Sophia Hatton, Cristina Mayorova, and Daniella Medvedeva.

Hatton enters 2024 after finishing a notable 2023 season at 17-11 overall with a 7-5 conference record. Last season, she played primarily on court 5 in singles and court 3 in doubles. Hatton had a career-highlight win as she beat a nationally-ranked opponent in doubles. 

Mayorova had an impressive 20-13 individual record while finishing 4-7 in ACC play. Mayorova played primarily on court 2 in singles and doubles, taking down two nationally ranked opponents in both.

Medvedeva finished last season strong with a record of 20-10 and a 7-6 ACC play record. She primarily played on court 4 in singles, beating four nationally-ranked opponents. While mainly playing on court 3 in doubles, Medvedeva beat two nationally-ranked opponents. After enduring shoulder surgery this off-season, she will gradually return as an asset to the team. 

The team adds freshman Alina Tsyurpalevych while returning Jenna Thompson, Alexandra Anttila, and Leigh Van Zyl.
