The No. 12 Virginia women's tennis team completed a sweep of a two-match weekend road-trip with a 6-1 win Sunday over Wake Forest. The Cavaliers improved to 14-4 overall, 5-2 in the ACC, with the victory.

At the No. 2 spot, Emily Fraser and Lindsey Hardenbergh topped Rebecca Siegler and Karen Forman 8-5 to clinch the opening point. Hana Tomljanovic and Erin Vierra completed the sweep with an 8-5 win at No. 1 over Kayla Duncan and Ryann Cutillo.
In singles, the Demon Deacons tied the match at 1-1 as Vierra retired from her match at No. 3 against Siegler. Molly O’Koniewski gave Virginia the lead, 2-1, as she didn’t lose a game in her win at No. 6 over Roach. Peretz followed with a 6-2, 6-1 win at No. 4 over Forman and Fuccillo clinched the win with her 6-1, 6-1 win at No. 5 over Bercyte.
Tomljanovic added a straight-set win at the No. 2 position, downing Cutillo 6-2, 6-4. In the final match on the courts, Hardenbergh rallied from losing the first set to defeat Duncan at No. 1 in a third-set match-tiebreaker to make the final score 6-1.
