The Govs (0-2) look to rebound after dropping their opening two matches of the season.

Austin Peay got wins from Aleh Drobysh and Jacob Lorino in singles against Chattanooga in their last match, but it was not enough to salvage the match.

Opponent Spotlight

Lipscomb (1-1) has had mixed results to start their season. They dropped a 6-1 decision at Southeastern Conference-member Vanderbilt, but rebounded to defeat Gardner-Webb in their home opener by a tight 4-3 scoreline. Lipscomb is 5-1 in their six doubles matches to start the year, so a fast start is critical for the Govs.  

Louisville (3-2) started off hot, winning their first three matches, but then fell to nationally- ranked Texas Christian and Duke. Louisville has two players ranked in the ITA’s Top 125, and also boasts the sixth-ranked doubles pair in Division I.
