CHARLOTTESVILLE – The top-ranked Virginia men’s tennis team ran its win streak to 20 matches with a 7-0 victory over No. 49 Miami on Friday at the Boyd Tinsley Courts at the Boar’s Head Sports Club. The Cavaliers (23-1, 4-0 ACC) also extended their wins streaks to 67 consecutive home wins and 51 consecutive wins against ACC competition.

Virginia opened the match by sweeping all three doubles matches from the Hurricanes (6-7, 0-4 ACC).

Singer added a 6-3, 6-2 win over Ignacio Taboada at No. 6. Courtney clinched the win with his 7-6, 6-1 win at No. 4 over David Simon.
