COLUMBIA, S.C. – The 57th-ranked South Carolina men’s tennis team (9-11) travels to No. 62 Clemson (15-16) on Wednesday for a mid-week non-conference match at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center at 3 p.m. Wednesday’s meeting marks the 99th in the all-time series between the two schools, with South Carolina holding a 57-39-2 advantage.

The Gamecocks look to snap a three-match winless streak against the Tigers, as Clemson has won four out of the last five meetings, including the last three between the two rivals. South Carolina also looks to snap a two-match losing streak, having lost to No. 24 Alabama and No. 26 Auburn in Southeastern Conference action last weekend.

As he has for the majority of the season, sophomore Pedro Campos paces the Gamecocks in singles play, boasting a team best 15-5 record in dual matches this spring. Senior Yevgeny Supeko tallied a solid victory last Sunday against Auburn’s Alexey Tsyrenov, who is ranked 37th in the most recent ITA singles rankings, at No. 1 singles. Supeko has won two out of his last three matches, both against ranked opponents.

Clemson enters Wednesday’s contest having won two out of its last three matches, both against non-conference opponents. Its loss in the stretch came against ACC opponent Boston College. Freshman Gera Boryachinski is CU’s lone ranked singles player (122) with a 16-13 record in dual matches this spring. Wednesday’s match will be the last home match for Clemson head coach Chuck Kriese, who will retire from Clemson at the conclusion of the 2008 season.
