Previewing the 2023 Women’s Tennis Season

TEMPE, Ariz. – After a historic 2022 season, which included a run to the Pac-12 Championship final and a 34th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance, the next chapter of Sun Devil Women’s Tennis has finally arrived.

Head coach Sheila McInerney will begin her 39th season in Tempe when the Sun Devils host Grand Canyon (10 a.m.) and UC San Diego (3 p.m.) on Saturday, January 14 at the Whiteman Tennis Center in the opener of the 2023 campaign.


It marks the first of 14 home matches this season and will be the second double-header the team plays in a span of three days.

Six Sun Devils from last season’s roster have returned this spring, and the team already sports a No. 19 overall ranking, according to the ITA.

Sandwiched between those two homestands, the Sun Devils have a pair of tough tests on the road at Oklahoma (February 11 at 12 p.m.) and Ohio State (February 19 at 11 a.m.).

March is shaping up to be among the busiest stretches in the entire spring, as they’ll play six times in three states. They’ll draw Baylor, Oregon and Penn (March 11 at 12 p.m.) at home before a four-match road trip against Washington (March 17 at 1:30 p.m.), Washington State (March 19 11 a.m.), California (March…
