Austin Peay State University Lady GovsBirmingham, AL – Austin Peay State University women’s tennis team fell 5-2, Saturday, to UAB in a match played outdoors at the Samford Tennis Complex.

Originally scheduled to be played indoors, the spring-like weather prompted the move which happened to be the Lady Govs first time to play outdoors this spring.

“This team is coming along,” head coach Malik Tabet said. “They’re young and they’re learning how to play the game in stages. We had a rough weekend, but we’re going to learn from it and move on.”


Austin Peay struggled on the doubles side as Tabet held out senior Vanja Tomic and freshman Weronika Kurka.

In singles, Tomic came out with her fourth-straight win in a battle at No. 1 with Paula Alvarez.  Sophomore Andra Cornea picked up the Lady Govs only other win at No. 5 singles, forcing a third set which resulted in Richole Berger withdrawing for the match.
