OXFORD, Miss. – With five of the top seven from last year returning, including three All-SEC honorees, the Ole Miss women’s tennis team seeks to take it to another level in 2012-13.  That quest begins this weekend at the Duke Fab Four Invitational in Cary, N.C.

The tournament starts Friday with two rounds of doubles followed by the first round of singles.   Saturday features the final round of doubles followed by second and third rounds of singles.   Play wraps up Sunday with the singles final.

Joining Ole Miss and host Duke is an elite field with players from Texas, UNC, Alabama, Texas A&M, Purdue, Miami, llinois, Yale, William and Mary and Furman.

Junior All-SEC returnee Caroline Rohde-Moe leads the Rebel contingent this weekend.  She is ranked No. 55 in the nation in the preseason ITA Rankings and went 3-1 at this event last year.  She is coming off a solid summer capped by winning the Norwegian Championships right before school started.

Joining Rohde-Moe in North Carolina will be sophomores Erin Stephens and Julia Jones and freshman Marija Milutinovic.  

Stephens, an All-SEC second team member as a freshman in 2012, begins the year ranked No. 113 in singles.   Jones, ranked No. 116 in the nation, also looks to carry over from a solid freshman campaign, where she joined Stephens on the SEC All-Freshman Team.

Milutinovic, the No. 2 ranked junior in Sweden, will make her debut for the Rebels.  She won the Swedish National Championship in doubles and was a two-time finalist in singles.

“We are excited to get the season kicked off,” head coach Mark Beyers said.  “The Duke event features some of the top players in the country, so it will be a great early test for our players.”
