WSU tennis takes on Stanford

2 pm today!

Cougar Pride

Good morning, Coug fans! Today, your Washington State Tennis team attempts to take Stanford down. After two exciting wins over Eastern Washington (exciting largely because of the score, both sets ended 4-0!), the Cougs are at Stanford ready to play.

Let’s see what this game might have in store!

Stanford does rant 35th with an 8-0 record, 4-0 in Pac 12 play. However, I’m electing to view that as an opportunity rather than a challenge. Emma Higuchi finished last season with a 9-2 overall, 8-1 in duals and a 6-1 record. She was at the No. 6 spot, and she was able to return to Stanford for another year.

However- we have two new Cougs on the roster for tennis! Hania Abouelsaad and Fifa Kumhom.

Abouelsaad is ranked among the highest students in Egypt, and she joins Washington State as a freshman. She has a career best of 10.9 UTR (Universal Tennis Rating- the range is between 1.00 and 16.50, so for an 18 year old, that’s not bad).

Kumhom is a freshman from Thailand, with a career UTR of 11.44. She also ranks among the best in her age group, and in my humble opinion, these could be two great assets to the program.

Overall, this has potential to be another great tennis match! The livestream goes up at 2pm. Go Cougs!
