One day later than expected, Tech visits Georgia State Sunday morning
COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- The match will take place one day later than originally scheduled due to weather concerns in the Peach State, as Tennessee Tech visits Georgia State Sunday for a tennis match beginning at 10 a.m. CT. The event will take place in the Peachtree City Tennis Center in Peachtree City. Ga., a few miles southwest of Atlanta.
The Golden Eagles (0-5) had to postpone the match from Saturday with ice and snow stalling and slowing movement in Georgia. Tech was also slated to face UNC Greensboro, but that match was cancelled.
Georgia State (3-6) is coming off a 1-2 weekend against three Top 70 ranked opponents. The Panthers upset No. 67 East Tennessee, 4-3, on Saturday. GSU lost 4-1 matches to No. 61 Wichita State and No. 29 Oklahoma State. Georgia State opened the year ranked No. 62, but have dropped off the chart.
Tech and Georgia State have met 11 times on the courts, with the Panthers owning an 8-3 advantage. The two teams have split the last four matches, with Tech claiming victories in 2010 and 2011, and the Panthers winning each of the last two years. In last year's match, a 6-1 win for GSU, the Tech point came at No. 1 singles when Syrym Abdukhalikov defeated No. 54 Victor Valente in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2.
