The match used an alternative scoring method agreed upon by both teams. The match consisted of five doubles matches and 10 singles matches, all worth one point for a total of 15 points available.
Play began with the No. 7-10 singles matches. Philippe Oudshoorn, Santiago Villegas and Dino Dell’Orto all won their Cavalier dual match debuts and Steven Eelkman Rooda also added a victory for Virginia, who jumped out to a 4-0 lead.
The Cavaliers followed by sweeping all five doubles matches to take a 9-0 lead in the dual match. The duo of Sanam Singh and Michael Shabaz topped the No. 26 ranked Tribe pair of Keziel Juneau and Sebastien Vidal 9-7 at the No. 1 position. The teams of Houston Barrick/Jarmere Jenkins, Drew Courtney/Lee Singer, Oudshoorn/Rooda and Julen Uriguen/Villegas also won for Virginia.
Virginia swept the No. 1 through No. 6 singles matches to complete the 15-0 victory. Shabaz, Jenkins, Courtney, Barrick and Singer won to make it 14-0 before Singh rallied to complete the sweep. Singh trailed Juneau 7-5, 5-4 and fought off four match points against him before rallying for a 5-7, 7-6(5), 6-1 win.
“This was a good start to the season,” said Virginia head coach Brian Boland. “We have had a good couple of weeks of practice and it was nice to be able to get the season started. This format was a great opportunity to let a lot of players get competitive matches in, and that is so important this time of the season. We appreciate William & Mary for agreeing to play the match with this format. They have a great team and it proved to be a great dual match.”
The Cavaliers return to action this weekend as they visit Illinois and Notre Dame.
