CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia sophomore Emma Navarro (Charleston, S.C.) was named the 2022 ACC Women’s Tennis Player of the Year in honors announced Thursday (April June 9) by the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Navarro is the first student-athlete in program history to be named the ACC Women’s Tennis Player of the Year.
Additionally, Navarros was named to the All-ACC first team with junior Natasha Subhash (Fairfax, Va.) earning second-team honors and freshman Elaine Chervinsky (Baltimore, Md.) being named to the third team.
Navarro is an ITA All-American in singles and doubles, finishing the year ranked No. 2 in singles and No. 4 in doubles. A finalist for the 2022 Honda Sport Award For Tennis, she posted a 26-2 record in singles and spent four weeks as the top-ranked player in the nation. In her two seasons at UVA, she is a combined 24-2 in ACC singles matches. In her freshman year, she was named the ACC Freshman of the Year, but this is the first ACC Player of the Year honor for the 2021 NCAA Singles Champion. This is her second time being named to the All-ACC First Team.
All-ACC honors are determined by a vote of the conference’s head coaches.
Subhash earned her third-straight ITA All-America honor in singles with a 29-12 record. She won the ITA Atlantic Regional Singles Championship in the fall and competed at both the ITA All-American and the ITA Fall National Championships. She repeated as UVA’s Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year, an award recognizing the department’s outstanding female student-athlete based on academic excellence and performance with distinction as a member of a varsity team. This is her second time earning conference honors after being named to the first team last season. All-ACC teams were not announced her freshman season.
Chervinsky, the ITA Atlantic Region Rookie of the Year, went 18-15 in singles, playing on the top-three courts, and was 22-9 in doubles. She was ranked as high as No. 53 in singles and No. 50 in doubles, earning a spot in the field of the NCAA Singles Championship.
