The Wisconsin men's and women's tennis teams will be taking on the state of Indiana this weekend when they face Purdue and Indiana.
The men's team (8-9, 2-2 Big Ten) begins a four game home stand when it faces No. 64 Boilermakers (10-7, 10-4) Friday. Purdue is coming off of two losses last weekend, falling to Iowa and Illinois.
Meanwhile, No. 27 Indiana is coming off two wins last weekend. The Hoosiers (18-4, 5-0) did what Purdue could not, knocking off Illinois and shutting out Iowa.
Wisconsin's last weekend ended in a split. On the road in Michigan, the Badgers fell to the Wolverines last Saturday before bouncing back for a victory over Michigan State.
Wisconsin will look toward senior captain Marek Michalicka, who enters this weekend ranked No. 72 in the ITA rankings. Additionally, the duo of Michalicka and sophomore Billy Bertha come into Friday's match ranked 66th among doubles.
The Wisconsin women's tennis team (11-7, 2-2 Big Ten) will take to the road this weekend to face Purdue and Indiana this weekend.
The Badgers encounter a 10-8 Hoosier squad Saturday that has yet to win a conference match this season. The Wisconsin women will then travel across the state of Indiana Sunday for a match Sunday against the Boilermakers.
The No. 58 Purdue squad (9-6, 3-2) features no ranked singles members, but do boast the No. 38 doubles team in the country in Mara Schmidt and Jennifer Rabot.
Last weekend also brought split results for the Wisconsin women, who upset Michigan State, but fell 7-0 to the No. 8 Michigan Wolverines.
