During his time at Virginia, Pedroso has been recognized as one of the top assistant coaches in the nation. The 2014 ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year, he has also twice been honored as the ITA Atlantic Region Assistant Coach of the Year (2012, 2014).
Last year the Cavaliers continued their run of success with their eighth consecutive ACC Championship, their 10th in the past 11 years. Virginia's ACC win streak (regular season and postseason) reached 122 straight matches, the longest streak in conference history in any sport. The team reached the NCAA semifinals for the seventh time in the past eight seasons.
The 2012-13 campaign marked one of the greatest years by any program in collegiate tennis history. In addition to posting an undefeated 30-0 record, Virginia became just the 12th school to win both the NCAA Championship and ITA National Team Indoor Championship in the same year. The Cavaliers had their fifth NCAA individual champion as Jarmere Jenkins and Mac Styslinger won the NCAA Doubles Championship. Jenkins, who also reached the NCAA Singles Championship final and finished the year No. 1 in the ITA Singles Rankings, became the third Cavalier to be named ITA National Player of the Year.
In 2011-12, Pedroso helped direct the Cavaliers to their second consecutive NCAA Tournament final, as they also won their eighth ACC championship in nine seasons and set a NCAA record by having a NCAA singles quarterfinalist for the seventh consecutive season.
In 2010-11, Pedroso helped lead the Cavaliers to a 34-1 record and the NCAA final. The team won the ITA National Team Indoor Championship, the ACC regular season and tournament titles, and became the first school in nearly two decades to have five players selected for the NCAA singles championship.
Pedroso came to Virginia after serving as a national coach for USTA Player Development. During his time with the USTA, he was responsible for the development of the top male American junior players born in 1995. He also worked periodically with several top American professional players, including Sam Querrey, Mardy Fish, Jesse Levine and Ryan Harrison.
A 2001 graduate of Duke, Pedroso helped lead Blue Devils to four ACC titles. A two-time All-American (2000 and 2001), he made the round of 16 of the NCAA Singles Championship twice. In 2003, he was named to the ACC 50th Anniversary Team, recognizing the top 50 players during the league's first half-century. Following college, he played professionally for four years, reaching career-high rankings of No. 271 in singles and No. 255 in doubles. During his pro career, he won four singles titles and two doubles titles on the Futures Tour and a doubles title on the Challenger Tour.
Pedroso and his wife, Erika, reside in Charlottesville with their son, Felix Andres.
