Neters look to Big

Ten opener



i nd

The Michigan men's tennis team, un-
defeated and ranked 15th nationally,
hopes to continue its match-by-match
improvement as they enter Big Ten
conference play this weekend against
Illinois and Purdue.
"Last weekend's performance was
our best of the year," said Coach Brian
Eisner. "We beat a good Kentucky
team - without Jeff Etterbeek - 9-0.
We are getting better with every mat-

LAST SEASON, the Wolverines
dominated the Big Ten with an 8-1 con-
ference record and a first place finish in
the conference championships.
Michigan has won the Big Ten men's
title 12 years in a row, ten under Eisner
to establish tennis supremacy in the
Midwest. Today, however, the
Wolverines must meet the Fighting
Illini, always a difficult match for the
Michigan netters.
Commenti.g on the match at Cham-
paign, Eisner said, "In my ten years
here, Illinois has given us more trouble

Wolverines must play well to open the
Big Ten season with a victory. ,
"Illinois is an excellent team,"
Eisner elaborated. "They don't have
one or two outstanding players, but
their top six players are about equal in
ability, so they have some depth. Also,
we never play well down there (Cham-
paign). The weather is usually bad, the
courts are slow and the fences close
AFTER TODAY'S competition,
Michigan travels to Purdue. Last year,
the Boilermakers occupied the
basement of the Big Ten, but "Purdue

Eisner. "They should move out of the

Big Ten's top competitor did not play
against Kentucky due to a twisted
ankle, but will open the Big Ten season
at Illinois. According to Coach Eisner,

"The reason that we are at an early

The women netters chalked up
another win yesterday, defeating
Eastern Michigan University 8-1 and
proving that old saying "last but not
least." Coach Theo Shepherd played
the bottom of the team roster, not ex-
pecting EMU to be too tough of a team.
And those sixth through tenth-seeded
players came through with flying
Kathy Karzen, still playing at her
number one singles position, and Ann
Kercher, normally at number six
singles, playing number two, were both
victorious in their matches.
For freshwoman Barb Freeman,
though, this was her first match for the
Wolverines. "I was kind of nervous,"
she said, but she won her singles, 6-2
and 6-3. "I feel good about winning for
Junior Debby Rentschler defeated
her opponent 6-2, 6-1. "I'm keeping the
ball in play pretty long," she explained,
"I'm trying to play better." Rentschler
normally plays seventh singles, but in
this match, she was third.
"I didn't play as well as I thought I
should," said junior Laura Danuff. "I
wasn't playing my game, just trying to
beat her at hers." Still, Danuff won her
singles as did sophomore Lisa Wood.
And with a 6-0 singles score, the
doubles competition began. Barb
Fischley, a transfer student from EMU,
and Karzen played the doubles team of
Donna Robinson and Carol Bochinsky,
defeating them 6-4, 6-0. Wood and Ker-
cher also won their doubles match.
The only upset was the team of
Danuff and Freeman, who lost 7-5, 6-0.
"They haven't played as much," said
Sheprcrd, explaining their loss. "With
experience, they would have played
more evenly. After the first set, they
iost their confidence."
