COLUMBIA, S.C. — No. 15 South Carolina women's tennis will open 2018 dual match play competing at the University of Central Florida on Friday and at the University of South Florida on Sunday.
The Gamecocks are coming off a tournament victory at the FGCU Spring Invite last weekend, winning eight of nine singles matches and 16 of 22 doubles matches against players from No. 23 Ole Miss, Rice, Denver, FGCU and Kansas.
Hadley Berg and Megan Davies hold the team's best individual singles records at 12-1 and 15-3, respectively. Both Berg and Davies went undefeated in singles at the FGCU Spring Invite, along with freshmen Nikolina Jovic and Kennedy Wicker. The doubles tandem of Davies and Silvia Chinellato is the team's most productive at 11-3 overall.

"It was a quick turnaround at home and we are back in Florida competing again this weekend. It will be great to get back down there and build on the match play from last week. The early part of the season is dedicated to improving week to week, so we are looking forward to see if we can bring more to the table this weekend." -- Head Coach Kevin Epley
