W-tennis in Utah

If the Arizona women’s tennis team has been looking for its killer instinct, this is the week to find it.

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association No. 50-ranked Wildcats (7-1) will be hosted by two lower-ranked opponents this weekend. While today’s opponent, ITA No. 68 Brigham Young University (3-4), and Saturday’s foe, No. 71 Utah (3-5), are not as high as the UA in the polls, each will prove to be challenging.

While head coach Vicky Maes expects both teams to be fired up playing on their home courts, the focus this week has been about what her team can do as opposed to focusing on the nature of its opponents.

“”Physically, we are almost where we need to be, but emotionally, we would really like to see a bit more mental toughness and killer instinct,”” Maes said.
