Tomic gets Lady Govs tennis only win at Louisville

APSU Women’s Tennis

Austin Peay State University GovernorsLouisville, KY – Austin Peay State University women’s tennis team took a 6-1 loss at Louisville, Friday afternoon at the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center.

The Lady Govs dropped the doubles point and lost five of six singles matches to give the Cardinals their second-straight win. It also continued Austin Peay’s non-conference road skid, which is now at six games.

Junior Vanja Tomic, at No. 1 singles, brought home Austin Peay’s only win. Tomic lost the first set 2-6, but won the second set in commanding fashion, 6-0. She carried that dominance into a 10-5 tiebreaker to take the match.

Unfortunately, the rest of the Lady Govs were not as successful. Freshman Kimberly Loo played a similar match, however, she won the first set before dropping the second and losing in a tiebreaker. No other Lady Govs player won a set.

On the doubles side, Tomic and Loo fell, 8-5, at No. 1, while sophomore Caroline Weikard and freshman Andra Cornea lost, 8-3, at No. 2. It was Weikard and Cornea’s first loss since first teaming up six matches ago. They had previously won five consecutive matches.

Austin Peay now has all of its non-conference schedule out of the way, with only Ohio Valley Conference matches left to play. The Lady Govs next host a crucial home stand with UT Martin and Eastern Illinois, next weekend.
