BOULDER – The Colorado Buffaloes Tennis team looks to snap a two-match losing streak against Wyoming in Boulder on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. in the lone match of the week. The match time and location will be determined closer to match time and will either be played at the CU Tennis Complex or at the Rocky Mountain Tennis Center.
Junior transfer Aya El Sayed has quickly adapted to playing tennis in the Pac-12. El Sayed is currently on a six-match winning streak at No. 4 singles going back to San Francisco in early February. The win streak was extended last week with wins in her first two Pac-12 matches of the spring. One of which was against then No. 72 ranked player in the country Alexis Blokhina of Stanford. Even with the streak continuing to grow El Sayed is focusing on playing the right way.
“Honestly I’m trying to do it the right way,” El Sayed said. “I’m just trying to focus on what I have to focus on. It’s definitely getting better day by day. I’m not focusing on the winning streak as much, but I’m focusing on my performance overall.”
As much as the success on the court has come for El Sayed, off the court has been just as much of a win. From her teammates to the city of Boulder Aya has loved her time here so far. El Sayed is very happy she picked Colorado when deciding to transfer from the New Jersey Institute of Technology last spring.
“I love it here honestly,” El Sayed said. “It’s been great. My teammates have been supportive from day one, we have a very close connection our team has such great team chemistry. I mean also I love Boulder, it’s so amazing. I’m really glad I picked CU.”
As a team the Buffs are coming off a tough weekend losing against then No. 13 and No. 55 ranked teams in the country with Stanford and California, but will look to bounce back on Sunday against Wyoming.
“I think we definitely improved in the match against Cal,” El Sayed said. “I think we are going in the right direction. I’m excited for our match this weekend against Wyoming.”
Wyoming comes to Boulder with a record of 4-7 on a two-match losing streak against Nebraska and Denver. The Buffs currently lead the all-time series 7-1 including a 4-0 sweep in Boulder last spring where many Buffs played a big part. The No. 3 doubles duo of Ellen Puzak and Betina Tokac clinched the doubles point with a 7-5 victory. Mila Stanojevic also…
