CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The 15th-ranked Miami Hurricanes women’s tennis team takes a break from ACC play when it hosts 17th-ranked Baylor on Saturday at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.

Miami (10-2, 6-0 ACC) is on a seven-match winning streak. As part of the streak, the Canes have won six-consecutive ACC matches, including a win against 19th-ranked Georgia Tech. Most recently, the Hurricanes swept a two-match road trip at Pittsburgh and NC State.
