The Tennessee men's tennis team opens its home schedule this weekend when it welcomes ETSU and UNC-Greensboro to the Goodfriend Indoor Tennis Center.
Tennessee faces intrastate rival ETSU Saturday at 1 p.m. The Volunteers faced ETSU twice last season defeating the Bucs both times. ETSU under fourth year head coach Yaser Zaatini has begun the season with a 4-2 record. The Buccaneers are led by junior Oscar Posada. Tennessee has defeated ETSU in all 17 meetings between the two schools.
On Sunday, UT faces UNC-Greensboro who is coached by former Vol Thomas Mozur. The Spartans are off to a 0-2 start this season. Tennessee defeated UNCG 6-1 last season in the only meeting between the two schools.
Tennessee is 1-1 this season after defeating Michigan State and losing to Ohio State. Sophomore Bobby Cameron started both matches at the No. 1 singles slot and defeated Ohio State's Devin Mullings, the 56th ranked singles player last Sunday. Fellow sophomore Kaden Hensel won both of his singles matches this past weekend.
All matches at the Goodfriend Indoor Tennis Center are free and open to the public.
