PHILADELPHIA - Women's Tennis continues its home stand on Wednesday, when the Quakers (3-2) welcome cross-town rival Temple (2-1) to the Levy Tennis Pavilion. The match begins at 4 p.m. and will be a rematch from a year ago in which Temple defeated Penn 4-3. Coming into the match with Temple, the Quakers have yet to drop a home competition on the year, as they are 2-0 in Levy Pavilion.

Temple comes into the contest on Wednesday fresh off a 6-1 win this past Friday against Drexel. To begin the spring campaign, Temple started with a 5-2 loss against Dartmouth, but followed that up with a victory over Southern New Hampshire, 7-0. During the fall season, Penn and Temple met six times in individual play. In those matches, Temple won four of those matchups. In doubles action, Penn and Temple only met once, with the Quakers duo of Connie Hsu and Alexa Ely prevailing in the Cissie Leary Invitational at Penn.

In the matchup between these two schools a year ago, Penn and Temple split the six individual matches. The difference came in the doubles competition, where Temple took two of the three matches to claim the doubles point and ultimately the 4-3 victory. Last year, Ely and Emily Wolf had victories at the number one and two positions respectively, while Daniela DePaoli won her match at number four. The team of DePaoli and Emma Whitfield were the lone winners in doubles, taking the number three match a season ago.

In the match versus Temple, Penn will be looking to avenge another loss from last year. Last time out, the Quakers beat George Washington 5-2, reversing the outcome of when these two teams met during the 2009-10 season.

The Quakers have had several players experiencing success during the early spring season. Hsu has won all five of her spring matches. During these matches, she has allowed no more than two games to any opponent throughout the entire match. Jaime Yapp-Shing and DePaoli have won three of their four matches to begin the spring. Stephanie Do and Whitfield have also picked up two victories early on. The Quakers also welcomed back Wolf, who made her singles debut against George Washington, winning the number six position. Previously, Wolf had competed exclusively in doubles play after returning from her semester abroad.

Penn will also be in action this weekend as Richmond comes to the Levy Tennis Pavilion on Sunday.
