Alabama is coming off a successful ITA Kick-Off Weekend, where it advanced to its first ITA National Team Indoor Championships in program history with wins against Memphis and No. 20 Clemson, 4-2. The Tide won the doubles point in both matches, with the deciding matchup coming on court two, which was won on both occasions in a tiebreaker by senior Antonia Foehse and freshman Maya Jansen. Foehse would also clinch the team victory against Memphis while freshman Natalia Maynetto provider the clincher against Clemson.
