Carre joins Lady Govs Tennis for 2011-12

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University women’s tennis team has added Alison Carre, of France, to the 2011-12 roster, head coach Malik Tabet has announced.

Carre joins the Lady Govs after spending time at the French Federation Tennis School. A smooth player with a developed stroke, Carre looks to be a strong addition to the Lady Govs. Austin Peay came up short on a repeat bid in the 2011 OVC Tennis Tournament, falling in the semifinals to eventual champion Jacksonville State.

“She’s a very talented player with great experience,” Tabet said. “Her work with the tennis school at the French Federation has gone a long way to improving her game.”

Carre is considered a smart player, sporting a good backhand as well as an ever-improving forehead. As a junior player in the French Federation, she gained valuable experience playing against top players and had good success climbing the French ranking system.

The Lady Govs are continuing their attempt to fill gaps in a lineup that spent much of 2011 with only five players after injuries took its toll during the early part of spring. Carre is a player that should be able to contribute immediately to the lineup.

“She wants to have a great impact on a tennis program and we hope she does,” Tabet said. “She’s a smart tennis player.”
