FAYETTEVILLE - The No. 51 University of Arkansas men's tennis team will host three home matches this weekend against No. 17 Tulsa on Friday at 5:30 p.m. and UMKC and Oral Roberts AT 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday.
The Razorbacks are entering this weekend with a record of 8-2 including victories over then-No. 37 Minnesota and No. 63 New Mexico.
Senior Gregoire Lehmann has been solid at the No. 1 position, recently taking down two top-75 ranked opponents. Junior Mike Nott remains undefeated in singles play with six solid victories while also playing strong in the No. 1 doubles spot with partner Manfred Jeske.
The Tulsa Golden Hurricane has a record of 4-4 for its 2013 season, but all four losses were tight matches with teams all ranked in the top-25. The Hogs rival took down then-No.37 Minnesota with a 4-3 score the same weekend the Razorbacks did.
"This is going to be a tough match for us," head coach Robert Cox said. "We have always had some type of rivalry with Tulsa with our schools being so close. They are a very solid team and we are going to have to come out and play our best if we want to come out with a victory."
Arkansas will host a doubleheader Sunday with UMKC at 11 a.m. followed by Oral Roberts at 3 p.m. UMKC is entering this weekend with a record of 1-5, while Oral Roberts has a record of 0-5.
The first 150 fans in attendance Friday will receive a Razorback tennis t-shirt. There will also be pizza available between doubles and singles play.
There will be live stats, a blog, and a full recap of all three matches available on ArkansasRazorbacks.com. For more information on Arkansas tennis follow them @RazorbackMTEN on Twitter.
