First Serve:  Ball State tennis will host four total matches at home this weekend beginning Friday when the men host Detroit Mercy at 6 p.m. at the Muncie YMCA Tennis Center.  The Cardinals are looking for their first win of the spring after losing to Big Ten foes Northwestern (6-1) and No. 16 Illinois (4-3).  Despite the loss against the Fighting Illini, Ray Leonard pulled off the 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 upset over No. 11 Stephen Hoh at the No. 1 singles position.  Patrick Elliott also was a winner at No. 6 singles after a three set victory over Brian Page.  Ball State also took the doubles point from Illinois.

Second Serve:  The Ball State women's tennis team kicks off the Cardinals' triple header Saturday when it hosts Milwaukee at Noon.  The BSU women's team opened spring play with a 2-0 start Jan. 19 at the Muncie YMCA Tennis Center.  The Cardinals managed 6-1 victories over IUPUI and Chicago State.  After the women's match, the Ball State men's tennis team will finish the triple header when the men host Eastern Illinois at 3 p.m. and then close out this competition with a 7 p.m. match versus Dayton.

Next Up for the Cardinals:  The Ball State men's tennis program will head to Bloomington to take on its third Big Ten opponent of the season when it faces Indiana at 3:30 p.m. on Feb. 3.  The Ball State women's tennis team will play at Michigan State Sunday, Jan. 27 at Noon.
