URBANA, Ill. - The top-ranked Virginia men's tennis team concluded the non-conference portion of its schedule Sunday with a 7-0 win over No. 15 Illinois at the Atkins Tennis Center, site of the 2013 NCAA Championships this May. The Cavaliers (11-0) recorded their eighth win this season against teams currently ranked in the top 20, while the Fighting Illini fall to 7-5 on the year.
Virginia opened the match by winning the doubles point for the sixth straight match.

Mitchell Frank (Annandale, Va.) and Alex Domijan (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) followed with an 8-3 win at No. 2 over Jared Hiltzik and Alex Jesse to clinch the opening point for the Cavaliers. The Illini took the match at No. 1 doubles where Tim Kopinski and Ross Guignon topped Jarmere Jenkins (College Park, Ga.) and Mac Styslinger (Birmingham, Ala.) 8-4.
In singles, the Cavaliers got off to a strong start, winning all six first sets. Domijan was the first off the courts, completing a 6-3, 6-4 win at No. 2 over Kopinski to make the score 2-0. Jenkins added a 7-5, 6-1 win over Hiltzik at No. 1 and Styslinger followed with a 6-4, 6-1 victory at No. 4 over Bruno Abdelnour to seal the win.
The Cavaliers added two more straight-set wins to extend the lead to 6-0. Frank topped Guignon 6-4, 6-3 at No. 3 and Shane downed Alex Jesse 6-4, 6-4 at No. 5. In the only match that went three sets, Uriguen topped Brian Page 6-4, 6-7, 6-1 at No. 6 singles to complete the sweep.
