SAN ANTONIO — UTSA finally will return to its home court for the first time in more than a month this week with matches against Liberty and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Both contests will be played at 2 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday at the UTSA Tennis Center.

Tuesday will be the first match the Roadrunners (5-7) have played in almost two weeks due to the postponement of the St. Edward’s match that was scheduled for March 2. UTSA, which has dropped two consecutive outings by identical 4-3 scores, saw its five-match road trip come to an end with a narrow loss to former Southland and Western Athletic Conference foe UT Arlington in its last outing back on Feb. 27.

Miriam Rosell Canudas improved to a team-leading 9-3 this season in singles play with her fourth victory in a row against the Mavericks. The standout freshman also paired with Jacobea Junger to win their sixth consecutive match at the No. 1 doubles position.

Liberty (7-4) saw its season-best four-match winning streak come to an end on March 2 when it fell at Charleston Southern, 5-2, and it was blanked by No. 63 Marshall on Saturday. Maria Khval leads the squad with seven singles victories and she has teamed with Rebekah Jenkins for a team-leading five doubles triumphs.

Meanwhile, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (6-2), which has won five of its last six matches, withstood a late New Mexico State rally to slip past the Aggies, 4-3, in its last outing back on March 2. The Islanders, who will host Abilene Christian at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, are led by Celia Rodriguez, who leads the team with seven singles wins. Meanwhile, Judit Vives is undefeated at 6-0 in singles play and she has paired with Sandra Burges to win five consecutive doubles match.
