CHARLOTTESVILLE - The Virginia men's tennis team makes its final road trip of the regular season this weekend as it visits No. 37 Miami on Friday and No. 25 Florida State on Sunday. The Cavaliers (19-3, 7-0 ACC) look to remain undefeated on the year in the conference and extend their five-match winning streak.
The Hurricanes (9-9, 4-3 ACC) are coming off losses at North Carolina and Duke last weekend. Miami won the regular season matchup between the schools last season, 4-3, at the Snyder Tennis Center to snap Virginia's 24-match ACC winning streak. The Cavaliers avenged that loss with a pair of wins over the Hurricanes in the postseason. Virginia posted a 4-2 victory over Miami in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament and cruised to a 4-0 win over the Hurricanes in the round of 16 of the NCAA Tournament. The match will feature a matchup at No. 1 singles between Somdev Devvarman (Chennai, India) and reigning ACC Player of the Year Luigi D'Agord. Both players are 7-0 on the season at No. 1 singles this season in the conference.
The Seminoles (11-7, 3-4 ACC) are also coming off losses at Duke and North Carolina last weekend. Virginia has won the last four meetings in the series, including a 5-2 win at the Snyder Tennis Center a year ago.
Virginia will return home the following weekend to wrap up the 2007 regular season. The Cavaliers will host Duke on Friday and North Carolina on Sunday.
