Women's Tennis Falls at No. 11 Miami
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The No. 30 Virginia women’s tennis team concluded a five-match road trip Sunday, falling 7-0 at No. 11 Miami. The Cavaliers fall to 10-5 overall, 3-2 in the ACC with the loss, while the Hurricanes improve to 12-3 and lead the conference with a 6-0 ACC mark.
The Hurricanes opened the match by sweeping the three doubles matches. In singles, Miami clinched the victory with four straight wins. In the other two matches, Hana Tomljanovic (Boca Raton, Fla.) and Jennifer Stevens (Miami, Fla.) fell in three sets.
“You have to give a lot of credit to Miami and Florida State this weekend,” said head coach Mark Guilbeau. “Both teams were very tough. Despite the scoreboard today, there were some very positive steps taken within the match. The team is competing hard and producing periods of very good tennis. The goal is to continue to improve and take advantage of the matches to come.”
Virginia returns home for the first time in a month on Friday, April 2 as it hosts top-ranked North Carolina. Match time at the Snyder Tennis Center is set for 2 p.m.
