Elite Field Set for UVa Ranked Plus One Invitational
CHARLOTTESVILLE — One of the strongest fields in collegiate tennis will compete this weekend at the Snyder Tennis Center as the second annual UVa Ranked Plus One Invitational runs Friday through Sunday. A field of 31 ranked singles players from 17 schools will be in action.
The tournament boasts eight players who competed in last year’s NCAA Singles Championship, including 2009 semifinalist Sanam Singh (Virginia) and 2008 runner-up John-Patrick Smith (Tennessee).
Both of last year’s singles co-champions, Singh and Reid Carleton (Duke) return for this year’s tournament. They were two of the 11 players in last year’s field to go on to play in the NCAA Tournament. Last year’s A-3 Doubles Final between Dominic Inglot and Michael Shabaz of Virginia and Smith and Davey Sandgren of Tennessee turned out to be a preview of the NCAA Doubles Championship Final.
Play begins on Friday morning at 9 a.m. Friday’s schedule consists of one round of doubles followed by two rounds of singles.
Complete draws are available above.
