CHARLOTTESVILLE - The Virginia men's tennis team began play Friday at the UVa Ranked+1 Invitational, its first event of the fall season. The Cavaliers had six singles players advance and three doubles teams reach flight finals on the opening day at the Snyder Tennis Center.
Play began on the day with two rounds of doubles in the four eight-team draws. Virginia had three teams reach flight finals with a pair of wins. In the Red Doubles draw, top-seeded Jarmere Jenkins (College Park. Ga.) and Mac Styslinger (Birmingham, Ala.) reached the final with wins over teams from North Carolina and Louisville. They will play second-seeded Kosta Blank and Chris Cooprider of UNC Wilmington in Saturday's final.

Virginia had six players reach the quarterfinals of the four 16-player singles draws. Jenkins, the top seed in Orange Singles, downed Rafael Paez of NC State in three sets. Domijan, the top seed in Blue Singles, cruised to a 6-1, 6-0 win over Luiz Elizondo of Louisville in his first round match. Two Cavaliers advanced to the quarterfinals of White Singles, as first-years Ryan Shane (Falls Church, Va.) and Styslinger each had straight-set wins in their collegiate debuts.
