The University of Utah men’s tennis team (10-12, 0-6 Pac-12) hosts the Arizona Wildcats (8-17, 0-6 Pac-12) on Saturday at 11 a.m. to close out the regular season before heading to the Pac-12 Championships. The match will be played at Coach Mike’s Tennis Academy, weather permitting.
The Utes fell to No. 56 Oregon and No. 62 Washington at home last weekend as several players suffered injuries. Utah looks to win its first conference match of the season while honoring seniors Slim Hamza, Cedric Willems, and Justin Archer.
Last year, No 53. Utah was upset by Arizona on the road, 4-1. The Utes rebounded in the first round of the Pac-12 tournament, ousting Arizona 4-0.
Arizona is led by No. 63 Naoki Takeda, who is 14-2 in singles play this season. The Wildcats have yet to clinch a road or conference victory, and Saturday’s match will conclude their regular season.
Live stats will be provided for this match. Coach Mike’s Tennis Academy’s address is 1216 Wasatch Dr, Salt Lake City, UT 84109. As always, admission is free!
