CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Two former Virginia men’s tennis players, Dominic Inglot (’09) and Somdev Devvarman (’08) will be part of teams competing in Davis Cup matches this weekend (Sept. 18-20).
Devvarman won his singles matched against No. 40 Jiri Vesely, 7-6 (3), 6-4, 6-3 on Friday (Sept. 18). It was Devvarman second singles victory this year in Davis Cup play. Devvarman logged a 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 singles victory over New Zealand’s Marcus Daniell, helping India to its victory in the Group I Asia/Oceania second round. Devvarman was slated to face Lukas Rosol on Sunday (Sept. 20), but the Czech Republic won 3-1 and the match was not necessary.
Inglot was originally scheduled to play doubles for Great Britain against Australia in the World Group Semifinals, partnering with Jamie Murray, taking on Samuel Groth and Lleyton Hewitt on Saturday (Sept. 19), but the team made a lineup change on Friday, replacing Inglot with Andy Murray on the doubles card. England defeated Australia, 3-2, to advance to the finals.
Two weeks ago, Inglot advanced to the semifinals in doubles at the US Open on the heels of winning the doubles title at the Winston-Salem Open. Inglot competed with Murray in doubles in the first round of Davis Cup World Group play in March, with England advancing with a 3-2 win over the United States.
