Women’s tennis (4-4) will look to get back on track this week as it takes on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay (0-5) in its first match since falling to the University of Illinois at Chicago on Saturday.

Head coach Tanya Gombera said the most important thing her team learned from the loss is that it needs to get better at playing doubles and learn how to take care of opportunities.

“Everyone has to play well in singles in order for us to add to our points,” Gombera said. “We need to win ahead in the match and then stay ahead. Overall, we need to be consistent as a team all the way through.”

Gombera said words like “fighters” and “talented” to describe the current Green Bay team.

“They will fight until the last point,” Gombera said. “They are talented and we have to be ready for that.”

Matches are set to kick off at 2 p.m. Saturday in Rockford.
