Tulane University men’s tennis has competed in matches across the United States in recent months. At the end of January, the Green Wave flew to Orlando, Florida to compete in the ITA Kickoff Weekend tournament, facing off with the University of Louisville and the 14th-ranked Stanford University team. 

Although the team lost to both Stanford and Louisville 0-4, the Green Wave fought hard, with Billy Suarez and Rafael de Alba beating Stanford’s 31st-ranked duo team 6-3. The dynamic duo also secured Tulane’s only win against Louisville, with a tiebreaker victory of 7-6. 

The Green Wave had a shot at reclamation this weekend against LSU at the New Orleans City Park Tennis Center, but the game was postponed due to LSU’s COVID-19 protocols. 

Men’s tennis will have another shot at victory when they travel to Alabama to play Auburn University on Feb. 13. The Green Wave will also have a home match against Rice University on Feb. 19.
