CHARLOTTESVILLE – The seventh-ranked Virginia men’s tennis team will return to ACC play this weekend with a pair of road matches against top-15 foes. The Cavaliers play No. 6 North Carolina Friday at 3 p.m. and No. 13 Duke Sunday at 3 p.m. as they look to expand on their 109-match conference winning streak.
The Cavaliers (10-2, 2-0 ACC) return to action for the first time in two weeks. Virginia is coming off of a split of a road trip to California that included a 4-3 loss at No. 3 UCLA and a 6-1 win over Loyola Marymount.
On Friday, Virginia travels to the Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center to face North Carolina (15-2, 2-0 ACC). The Cavaliers have won the last 11 meetings against the Tar Heels, including the last three meetings in Chapel Hill.
Sunday’s match at Duke is part of the USTA College Match Day series and will be broadcast on ESPN3. The match will begin with singles and doubles will follow only if the match is tied at 3-3. The Cavaliers have won the last five meetings in Durham and the last 12 overall meetings. Duke’s 4-3 win over Virginia in the 2006 ACC final marks the Cavaliers’ last loss to a conference opponent.
Live stats for both the North Carolina and Duke matches will be available on VirginiaSports.com.
The Cavaliers return home next weekend for three matches at the Snyder Tennis Center. Virginia hosts Miami on March 28, Florida State on March 29 and William & Mary on March 30.
