CHARLOTTESVILLE - Virginia junior Alex Domijan (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) was named the ACC Men's Tennis Player of the Week, conference officials announced Tuesday. Domijan helped lead the Cavaliers to the 2013 ITA National Team Indoor Championship in Seattle.
Domijan, the nation's top-ranked singles player, went 4-0 in singles and 3-1 in doubles as Virginia captured its fifth NTI title in the past six years. The No. 1 Cavaliers defeated No. 24 Washington, No. 9 Duke, No. 4 Ohio State and No. 2 USC to win the championship.
Three of Domijan's singles wins came against top-15 opponents. His 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 win over second-ranked Peter Kobelt of Ohio State clinched Virginia's 4-3 semifinal win over the Buckeyes. He also had straight-set wins over No. 10 Emilio Gomez of USC in the final and No. 15 Michael Redlicki of Duke in the quarterfinals. Domijan has 10 wins this season against players currently in the top 20 of the ITA singles rankings.
In doubles, Domijan teamed with Mitchell Frank (Annandale, Va.) for a 3-1 record at No. 3 doubles, including defeating ranked teams from Duke and USC. The Cavaliers won the doubles point in each match that Domijan and Frank were victorious.
The award is the second of Domijan's career and the first by a Cavalier this season.
Virginia will return to action on March 3 as it hosts No. 8 Oklahoma. Match time at the Snyder Tennis Center is scheduled for noon.
