Kentucky, ranked 28th nationally, fell to the Volunteers, 4-3.

Kentucky duo, Nadia Ravita and Aldila Sutjiadi, got Kentucky's first win of the day at No. 2 doubles and gave the Wildcats an advantage for the doubles point. The Jakarta, Indonesia natives defeated Eve Repic and Laurence Guevremont, 8-3. Edmée Morin-Kougoucheff and Kirsten Lewis clawed away at a 3-1 deficit and were on top of the Volunteers, 6-4, when senior tandem, Caitlin McGraw and CeCe Witten, won their match at the No. 1 doubles position and sealed the point for Kentucky.

Singles play was a see-saw affair for the Wildcats. Brittany Lindl was the first Volunteer to get on the with a 6-2, 6-0 win at the No. 4 singles position over Lewis. Both teams tied at one-all, Sutjiadi put Kentucky back on top with a convincing win over Joanna Henderson. She knocked off the junior, 6-2, 6-3. Kentucky didn't hold the lead for long. Ravita fell short of the win against Repic at No. 1 singles and Tennessee once again tied the match. Forcing a tiebreak set at the No. 3 position, Kelsey Dieters came out with the victory. In a match that lasted over two hours, Dieters' endurance led her to a 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 win over Guevremont and put the Wildcats at match point. Tennessee responded with two back-to-back wins to claim the match.

Kentucky falls to 14-6 (4-4 SEC) for the season. Kentucky will return to the Boone Tennis Center, Friday, March 28 when they take on Auburn University, who is ranked 20th in the nation.
