The No. 1 Virginia men’s tennis team traveled to Florida this weekend and defeated No. 36 Miami and No. 15 Florida State, each by the score of 4-3.

Against Miami (8-7, 4-2 ACC), the Cavaliers (22-0, 7-0 ACC) grabbed the doubles point and the first two singles matches, jumping out to a 3-0 lead. The Hurricanes, however, stole the next three, including a 6-4, 6-3 upset in the No. 1 spot by No. 29 Daniel Vallverdu against No. 15 senior Dominic Inglot. Virginia sophomore Sanam Singh’s 6-2, 6-4 victory against David Rosenfeld in the No. 2 slot broke the tie, sealing Virginia’s 4-3 victory.

Although the Cavaliers won by the same margin against Florida State (15-6, 5-1 ACC), the match was decided after only four singles matches. After claiming an initial 3-1 lead, freshman Drew Courtney clinched the Virginia victory in three sets, 6-4, 6-7, 6-4. Inglot continued his troubles in singles, however, as the senior lost in three sets to No. 20 junior Jean-Yves Aubone, 6-7, 7-6, 2-6. The Seminoles grabbed the final point of the match in No. 2 singles, as No. 57 sophomore Clint Bowles defeated No. 23 Singh, 6-4, 4-6, 6-4. Sophomore Michael Shabaz, meanwhile, won both his singles matches, holding opponents to five games in four total sets.
