The No. 4 Virginia men’s tennis team remained unbeaten in ACC play as it downed Wake Forest 7-0 on Friday at the Snyder Tennis Center. It was the Cavaliers (16-1, 6-0 ACC) ninth straight win.
Virginia opened the match by winning the doubles point, sweeping all three matches. Philippe Oudshoorn teamed with Steven Rooda for an 8-3 win at No. 3 over Conner Sherwood and Sam Wells. Jarmere Jenkins and Drew Courtney posted an 8-3 win at No. 1 over David Hopkins and Amogh Prabhakar. At No. 2, Alex Domijan and Julen Uriguen completed the sweep with an 8-5 win over Danny Kreyman and Adam Lee.
Virginia swept all six singles matches in straight sets to post the shutout victory. Justin Shane and Uriguen increased the lead to 3-0 with wins at No. 5 and No. 6, dropping just two and three games respectively. Courtney clinched the win with his 6-3, 6-2 win over Lee at No. 4.
The top three spots in the lineup featured close matches where the Cavaliers were victorious. Domijan topped Kreyman 6-4, 6-4 at the No. 2 position to make the score 5-0. Mitchell Frank followed with a 7-6(6), 6-1 victory at No. 3 over Prabhakar, after saving a set point in the first set tiebreaker. Jenkins concluded the match with a 6-4, 7-6(6) win over Hopkins at the top position.
The win was Virginia's 84th consecutive victory against ACC competition, extending its conference record.
“The guys fought hard today and did some good things on the court,” said head coach Brian Boland. “They came in well-prepared and did a good job of accomplishing the things we want them to do, which is getting better each and every day. We now get to have a good practice tomorrow before another challenge Sunday.”
The Cavaliers return to action on Sunday as they host No. 33 NC State.
