CHARLOTTESVILLE – The top-ranked Virginia men’s tennis team extended its home winning streak to 69 consecutive matches as it swept a doubleheader Sunday at the Boyd Tinsley Courts at the Boar’s Head Sports Club. The Cavaliers (25-1, 5-0 ACC) topped ACC rival Florida State 5-2 in the first match before downing Delaware 10-1 in the nightcap.

Virginia opened the day by defeating the Seminoles (11-5, 4-2 ACC). The Cavaliers opened the match by winning the doubles point. Drew Courtney (Clifton, Va.) and Michael Shabaz (Fairfax, Va.) cruised to an 8-2 win over Connor Smith and Vahid Mirzadeh at No. 1.

In singles, the Cavaliers quickly extended their lead to 3-0 with wins at No. 5 and No. 6, as Barrick topped Reed 6-2, 6-2 and Singer downed Jordan Kelly-Houston 6-2, 6-4. After Mirzadeh upset third-ranked Sanam Singh (Chandigarh, India) at No. 2 to cut the lead to 3-1, Shabaz clinched the win with his 6-2, 5-7, 6-1 win over Jean-Yves Aubone at No. 1. Jenkins later added a 7-6, 6-2 win over Bucaro at No. 4.

With the win, the Cavaliers extended their win streak against ACC competition to 52 consecutive matches.

In the second match of the doubleheader, Virginia topped Delaware (5-7) 10-1 in a match using an alternative scoring system. The teams played four doubles and seven singles matches, all worth one point.
