Two road matches are all that stands between the Iowa women's tennis team and the Big Ten Tournament.

This weekend, the Hawkeyes will take on Wisconsin at noon on Saturday at the Nielsen Tennis Stadium, and Minnesota on April 24.

Iowa will try to improve on its 6-13 record (3-5 Big Ten).

"[This weekend is] so important for us, because it determines what seed we will be in the tournament," junior Sonja Molnar said. "The higher the seed, the better."

The Hawkeyes are tied with Wisconsin for the sixth seed. Each squad still has two matches to play.

Winning at Wisconsin may be a difficult task for Iowa because the Badgers (12-10 overall, 3-5 Big Ten) have been almost unbeatable at home this season. Wisconsin is 9-1 in Madison, its lone loss coming to No. 8 Michigan. Iowa is 3-8 on the road this season.

The Hawkeyes will head to Minneapolis on April 24 for a noon matchup with the Golden Gophers (5-15 overall, 1-7 Big Ten) at the Baseline Tennis Center.
