Middle Tennessee women's tennis returns to action this weekend (Oct. 4-6) for the 2013 Samford Fall Invite in Birmingham, Ala.

The Blue Raiders collected three titles at the UNLV Fall Invitational two weeks ago. Veterans Nayara Moraes and Flavia Nagayama went 3-0 to win their respective flights, while freshmen tandem Sarah Sediri and Tiffany William were unblemished in doubles play.

This weekend, the Blue Raiders face individuals from UAB, Samford and South Alabama. The tournament format consists of a flighted round-robin singles and doubles brackets. Each player will compete in three singles matches and three doubles matches throughout the tournament - one singles and one doubles match each day.

"We are really looking forward to a great weekend of competition at Samford," said head coach Shelley Godwin. "All three teams we face are high quality and will give us a good measuring stick to where we stand. The environment will be a lot like a spring dual match, so it will be fun for the girls to get that experience in the fall."
