There has been much talk about how tough the UK football schedule is for this season. Rightfully so, but they are not the only Wildcat’s team that will face a number of top opponents. The Men’s Tennis schedule was released today for the upcoming 2013-2014 season and the “Racquet Cats” will have 18 matches against teams that were ranked in the top-40 a year ago plus 6 teams which will be against teams ranked in the top-10.
While the schedule may be rather daunting, the Wildcats should be up to the task. UK has earned 4 consecutive trips to the Sweet 16, a first in program history.
The season will get under way on January 17th when UK hosts a double-header against Dayton and Eastern Kentucky at the Hilary J. Boone Varsity Tennis Center. “First serve” will be at 1:00 p.m.
Other notable matches include a rematch with last season’s Sweet 16 opponent, the Duke Blue Devils, on January 19th and a renewal of the UK-IU rivalry on January 21st. SEC play will begin on February 28th when the ‘Cats travel to Baton Rouge to face LSU. The SEC Championships will be held in Nashville this season and will run from April 16-20.
